The Target department store chain has evolved on LGBT rights over the years. For its support of transgender employees and customers using the bathroom of their choice, Target became the subject of a boycott by anti-LGBT activists.
The man admitted he’s not transgender but warned about “crazy people that will do what I’m doing: dressing up and going into the women’s restroom and putting women and children in harm’s way.”
So says the hate group's chairman, Mat Staver — but he doesn't identify any individuals or groups.
Those looking to relieve themselves at trans-affirming facilities can add the coffee and book-selling giants as well as department stores Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Ken Paxton says he's concerned for the safety of women and girls, despite overwhelming evidence that this policy does not provide cover for "bathroom predators."
Anita Staver, the president of Liberty Counsel, claims Target's policy “put a bull's-eye on women.”
