Transgender arrest at a Dallas Target Was Based on a Hoax; the Boycott of Target Wasn’t

(KRBC News)

Our story of a transgender person arrested for allegedly taking photos of young girls in a Target restroom in Dallas was unfortunately based on hoax news site, KRBC News, according to Snopes: https://www.truthorfiction.com/transgender-woman-caught-taking-photos-target-bathroom/

We apologize for the erroneous story. This reporter got taken—and so have you.

What wasn’t false was the rest of the story about the boycott of Target, as follows:

Target made its position public in a blog post on April 19, stating that the company welcomes “transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.” The announcement comes as legislation on transgender issues in multiple states has spurred several major corporations and businesses to take a stance on LGBT ‘rights’.

A conservative Christian activist group, American Family Association, has already garnered more than 744,800 pledges to join its boycott of Target over the transgender issue.

The petition started by the American Family Association raises concerns that Target’s inclusive stance on transgender rights encourages sexual predators and puts women and young girls in danger, because “a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom.”

“This is the best response we’ve ever had this quick,” AFA President Tim Wildmon told USA Today, attributing the protest’s viral nature to the fact that “everybody knows who Target is, and it’s an easy-to-understand issue.”

Wildmon says Target stands “to lose a lot of customers who won’t come back.” But Target is standing by its policy.

“We certainly respect that there are a wide variety of perspectives and opinions,” says Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder. “As a company that firmly stands behind what it means to offer our team an inclusive place to work — and our guests an inclusive place to shop — we continue to believe that this is the right thing for Target.”

She added that hundreds of Target stores “have single-stall, family restrooms for those who may be more comfortable with that option.”
