Last week, Target retail stores announced that it had decided to allow people to use the bathroom or fitting room of the gender they identify with – meaning transgender men can use women’s rooms, etc. – and the move sparked controversy. As a result, the company received some absolutely devastating news.
As we all know, the best way to make a point to a business is to hit them where it hurts – the wallet – and it appears as if Target is going to be feeling it in theirs relatively soon. After the company announced its position, the American Family Association called for a boycott of its stores, and it looks like the idea is gaining some serious momentum.
How much momentum? Well, according to the AFA’s website, in just one day, the petition picked up hundreds of thousands of signatures.
Yeah, it’s that serious. Check it out:
In only a day, 200,000 concerned citizens have signed AFA’s #BoycottTarget pledge after the retail giant publicized its policy to allow transgender individuals access to store bathrooms and fitting rooms of the opposite-sex.
Corporate America must stop bullying people who disagree with the radical left agenda to remake society into their progressive image. #BoycottTarget has resonated with Americans. Target’s harmful policy poses a danger to women and children. Predators and voyeurs would take advantage of the policy to prey on those who are vulnerable. It’s clear now that many customers agree. Target shoppers are leaving their allegiance to the store behind—and by the thousands every hour. No store can withstand that sort of loss.
Ouch. It doesn’t seem to be getting any better either. As of this writing, the petition has garnered over 300,000 signatures total, and that number continues to rapidly rise.
So it does appear as if Target is going to be paying a financial price for failing to protect its customers by toeing the politically correct line. The silent majority is speaking, and it’s evident they’re beyond fed up with being bullied by tyrannical minorities intent on forcing their beliefs on everyone.
