Target feeling the pressure, but the fight isn't over

NO!Following Target's decision earlier this year to institute a policy whereby biological men could on a whim gain access to bathrooms and changing rooms normally reserved for girls and women, NOM and other conservative groups launched a boycott of the store to let them know that this kind of ideological move was not only dangerous for its customers but also insulting and bad for business.

In the months since, with stories cropping up regularly of how the policy was backfiring, Target has definitely felt the pressure, and this week comes news that the store is at least beginning to see the errors of its ways. From the Chicago Tribune:

Target said Wednesday that it is preparing to spend $20 million in coming months to add single-stall bathrooms along with men's and women's restrooms in its stores, a move meant to accommodate shoppers concerned about the retailers' policy of allowing customers and employees to use the bathroom that corresponds to the gender they identify with.

The story goes on to note some of the staggering statistics of Target's reported sales and projections which show that the boycotts have had a serious impact on the store, as much as the corporate execs and the media would like to downplay this.

However, this move by Target is only a beginning of righting the wrong of enforcing a dangerous gender ideology that puts women and girls at least in a very uncomfortable and unseemly - if not dangerous - situation of needing to undress in front of members of the opposite sex. (You'll note that this new "accommodation" of single-occupancy facilities is ironically for those who feel uncomfortable being in such a situation with members of the opposite sex, rather than the small minority of those who don't identify with their own biological sex!)

So, we need to keep up the pressure!

If you still haven't pledge to "Say No To Target," we encourage you to do so today. It's working!

File Under: "Things They Told Us Would Never Happen"

One could publish a book entitled, Things LGBT Activists Insisted Would Never Happen, But Did - and it would, grimly, be a long one. Whether it be public figures losing their jobs because of their religious beliefs on marriage or private business owners threatened with legal action and financial ruin for refusing to participate in celebrating a marriage that conflicts with their conscience, we've seen case after case in which the things they told us would never take place have come to sad fruition.

Today, the headline in this category reads, Transgender woman arrested for voyeurism at Target, and while we are shocked by the story we cannot say we're really surprised:

A transgender Idaho Falls woman was arrested Tuesday on one count of felony voyeurism for a report that she took pictures of another woman changing clothes in a dressing room at Target in Ammon.

Shauna Patricia Smith, 43, is in custody in the Bonneville County Jail under the name Sean Smith, according to the jail’s active inmate roster. A Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office news release said the suspect also is known as Sean P. Smith.

Sheriff’s deputies responded Monday to the store after a woman reported that someone was taking pictures of her while she was inside a dressing room trying on clothes, the release said. The victim noticed the subject reaching over the wall with a cellphone taking pictures. The victim confronted the suspect who then fled the store on foot, the release said.

Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Sgt. Bryan Lovell said he didn’t know whether the reported victim was wearing underwear when she was photographed.

Detectives reviewed witness information and security footage from Target that led them to come in contact with Smith, the release said. After interviewing Smith she was taken into custody by detectives and booked into the jail.

Detectives are investigating to determine if any more victims exist relating to this incident, the release said.

While the actions of this individual are outrageous, what is perhaps more maddening is that Target deliberately invited such behavior by intentionally putting the safety and privacy of girls and women at risk!

We have called on our supporters to SAY NO TO TARGET, and we renew that call today.
