The Target fiasco has been drawn out with embarrassing Target videos of people yelling at Target employees. It all started when Target took a seemingly harmless and common sense action to make their stores more comfortable for their Trans-Gender customers. It was met by the most brutal and unneccessary protests of their stores. In recent days, the Target bathroom policy seems to have died down… Untill now!
The main force against Target is the American Family Association, whose boycott of Target is still active. Wanting to find common ground, Target asked for a solution. The American Family Association demands are:
One solution is a common-sense approach and a reasonable solution to the issue of transgendered customers: a unisex bathroom. Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided.
Installing private bathrooms would cost Target $20 Million to complete…but guess what? They Agreed! Yes! Target is hoping to put this bathroom issue behind them by installing private bathrooms – a multi million dollar program to make everyone happy and comfortable. Even though Target met 100% of the American Family Association, they still don’t accept it!
The afternoon following the peace deal, The American Family Association sent out an email stating:
Last week, Target announced a $20 million public relations diversionary tactic to make you believe the company has changed its bathroom policy.
Don’t fall for it. Target has not changed its policy
While it is true the company is adding single-stall, lockable bathrooms to all store locations, Target says it will continue to allow men to use women’s restrooms and fitting rooms inside their stores
As if the regressive didn’t sound illogical enough, we – and Target – now know when they make any demands, they don’t mean them. Target, however, has yet again taken the high ground and is simply trying to make their customers more comfortable. Remember this when The American Family Association demand anything: they cannot be trusted.
