The hashtag #BoycottTarget has dominated Facebook’s top ten trends for three days in a row. Almost 500,000 people have signed the American Family Association’s (AFA) petition to boycott the company.

“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.”

“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.
