People have taken to social media to express disgust and outrage over Target’s decision to allow transgender people to use any bathroom or fitting room.
Is a boycott of Target more appropriately called transgender-cott? Regardless, I'm joining in.

@michelekirkBPR boycott Target for as long as it takes for them to change their ways. Men and women bathrooms only not transgender

It's as if Target is insisting that women and girls be victims inside its stores. https://t.co/QaAhSDaA4f

So @Target has decided to allow men in dresses to go into the restrooms with our daughters, denies women guns for self defense.

It pains me to say this because my daughter loves the place.
Me and my family will no longer shop at @Target
That is all.

“We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” the company said in a statement. “Everyone deserves to feel like they belong. And you’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.”
The safety of my family outweighs any feel good about yourself policy. @Target

“Corporate America must stop bullying people who disagree with the radical left agenda to remake society into their progressive image,” stated AFA President Tim Wildmon.

“I don’t care what they think,” explained Sandy Rios, AFA’s director of Government Affairs and host of Sandy Rios in the Morning on AFR Talk. She added:
Personally, this is common sense. And we have to do something. Let me also add, AFA’s position on this is that there are family restrooms. And if there aren’t, there should be one gender neutral bathroom. Nobody wants a transgendered man not to have a place to go to the bathroom. That’s not the point. … Our position is, let’s have a family bathroom, or something that’s neutral.
