Dangerous Policy Targets Women And Girls

The major retail chain Target has a new bathroom policy. This policy allows any person to use any bathroom they choose to “self-identify” with. The LGBT agenda is behind this absurd policy. They claim transgender people have a right to feel included and welcome in any restroom they want. They claim that women should be allowed to feel like men and men should be allowed to feel like women. Unfortunately, some Americans are embracing the politically correct falsehood of transgender rights.

The simple facts do not agree with the gay rights agenda. These “self-identity” bathroom policies will put more women and girls at risk of sexual attack. As more cities and states allow ridiculous transgender bathroom policies, more and more sexual predators will use the policies to attack women and girls. Self-identity bathroom policies are based on feelings, not facts. Because of this, there is no way to stop sexual predators from taking advantage of the rules. That is why bathroom rules based on biological sex are so important. They are laws designed to fit reality, not some politically correct liberal agenda.

Thankfully, not all Americans are falling in line with the transgender agenda. Mississippi and South Carolina passed legislation to prevent self-identity bathroom policies. Several other states are considering similar legislation. The grassroots is also rising up to fight this. One petition against Target’s policy put out by the American Family Association received 700,000 signatures in less than a week. Americans need to let businesses like Target know that we will not tolerate this kind of intrusion into our privacy and safety. We need to let our legislators know that every state should have prohibitions on self-identity bathroom policies. Americans have a right to privacy in the bathroom of their biological sex. Men have no place in the ladies’ room, and neither does political correctness.
