Sandy Rios, a Christian host with the American Family Association's American Family Radio network, warned on Aug. 19 that "we will not be able to go to the bathroom anywhere" if the AFA's boycott of Target over the chain's bathroom policy fails (video below).
Earlier this year, Target announced it was going to allow people to choose the bathroom that matched their gender identity, and the AFA responded with its boycott drive.
Rios made her dire prediction during a radio interview with "Breitbart News Daily" host Alex Marlow, notes Right Wing Watch:
And here's the thing, Alex, it isn't just about Target, it really isn't. This happened concurrent with the North Carolina law that just simply said that people should use the bathroom that comports with their physiology.
If we do not keep the pressure on Target this will quickly, we know how major corporations are, they are scared to death of anything that isn’t politically correct, this will spread like wildfire, we will not be able to go to the bathroom anywhere.
Sadly for Rios, many corporations already have a similar policy.
Representatives for Starbucks, Hudson's Bay Co. (Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue) and Barnes & Noble told USA TODAY in April that employees and customers are allowed to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity.
Executives from Whole Foods, Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, Kellogg, Warby Parker, Salesforce, Goldman Sachs, Apple and Time Warner Cable have reportedly signed an open letter by the Human Rights Campaign calling for the repeal of the North Carolina law that Rios mentioned.
The AFA made a boycott of Target's policy plea on its website:
This means a man can simply say he "feels like a woman today" and enter the women's restroom...even if young girls or women are already in there.
Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women's bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?
In its plea, the AFA made no mention of male sexual predators going after male children in men's bathrooms.
