After announcing the store's inclusive bathroom policy that allows transgender men to use bathrooms according to their gender identification, Target faces overwhelming pressure to reconsider such, as the company deals with a boycott petition that amassed more than a million of pledges, a dramatic fall in stock prices, and just recently, protests from parents at several Target store branches.
According to 16 Wapt News, those who were upset about the controversial bathroom policy gathered on Saturday at a Target store in Jackson, Mississippi to protest. The news outlet talked to some of these protestors who think that Target's policy puts women at risk.
"A man could put on a dress and say, 'I identify as a transgender,' and they can go in there," Keith Daltol said. He also suggested that it would be good if the company experiences a fall in business if that's the only way for it to do the right thing.
"I'm not saying that a transgender would harm a child," another protester, Johnny Brekeen, shared, adding, "What I'm saying is if men are allowed to go into the restroom, children are going to be harmed."
