American Family Association is reminding people to avoid doing their back-to-school shopping at Target, writing,
Avoid this store: Do your back-to-school shopping elsewhere
As back-to-school shopping season nears, I’m asking your family to avoid shopping at Target stores…and to warn your friends about the danger Target presents to women and children.
Together we are making an unprecedented financial impact on a corporation whose policy is to allow men to use women’s restrooms and dressing rooms. Target’s decision is unacceptable for families, and their dangerous and misguided policy continues to put women and children in harm’s way.
We must keep the pressure on Target by avoiding their stores during back-to-school shopping. Let’s educate Target to the fact that their bathroom policy earns them a failing grade.
Target is dependent on a large back-to-school sales season. By spending your money with their competitors, you are sending a strong message to Target that their policy is bad for business.
