Woman's Post About Target's Bathroom Policy Goes Viral

| by Brendan Kelly

A young woman's Facebook post about about her visit to Target is going viral.

Maggie Ann says that she walked into her local Target and asked to speak to the manager, according to Mad World News. She explained in a Facebook post that she had questions about the company's new gender-neutral bathroom policy.

"After introducing myself, I got right to the point of my visit.," Maggie wrote in her post. "I asked her what this Target's specific policies were concerning bathrooms, and who had access to what bathrooms. She hesitantly answered with what we are all aware of, that both the male and female restrooms are now neither; they're gender neutral."

The young woman, who was wearing a sweatshirt that read "Reagan Bush '84," said that she followed up the manager's response with another question.

"So if I were to walk into the restroom labeled 'women' right now, a man could legally walk in right behind me no questions asked?" she asked the manager.

The manager said yes, and Maggie said that she would no longer be giving Target her business.

Maggie explained in the post that she is "not worried about sharing a bathroom with someone that's transgender, lesbian, bisexual, etc.," but that she is worried about sharing a bathroom with men. 

"We need to wake up to what's happening around [us] and stand up for what we believe in," she wrote.

The post was accompanied by a photo of Maggie posing in front of the Target, giving a thumbs-down.

Dear America, 

Today I walked into my local Target and politely asked for the manager. After introducing myself, I got right to the point of my visit. I asked her what this Target's specific policies were concerning bathrooms, and who had access to what bathrooms. She hesitantly answered with what we are all aware of, that both the male and female restrooms are now neither; they're gender neutral. To clarify what that meant I asked her, "so if I were to walk into the restroom labeled 'women's' right now, a man could legally walk in right behind me with no questions asked?" She replied with a nod of her head and said yes. I proceeded to tell her that as much as it disappoints me, I will no longer be able to provide Target with my frequent business any longer. Target claims to want everyone who walks in their store to feel like they belong, which is the reasoning behind this sudden change in restroom etiquette. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm not worried about sharing a bathroom with someone that's transgender, lesbian, bisexual, etc. I'm worried about going into a bathroom with my beautiful blonde haired niece, and a man LEGALLY being able to waltz in right behind us with no one stopping him. We need to wake up to what's happening around us and stand up for what we believe in. Someone said to me recently that conservatives aren't radical enough to stand up to this chaos and fight it. Well, I beg to differ. #byetarget
