This is Only the Beginning

Recently Target has decided that it will now conform to the progressive left's doctrine of inclusivity, stating in a recent article, "...we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity." Earlier in that same article, the company affirmed that, "Inclusivity is a core belief at Target." (Here is a link to the full article: https://corporate.target.com/article/2016/04/target-stands-inclusivity)

Conservatives, get ready, because this is only the beginning. Soon, more companies will begin to take sides. Of course, Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-a, and some other similar organizations will stay strong. However, that still leaves hundreds of companies which will quite probably disregard all sensibility and sacrifice commonsense at the altar of inclusivity.

Why is this such an issue? Because such policies will likely put thousands, if not millions, of people at risk. What is going to stop pedophiles and rapists from claiming they are the opposite gender, so they can gain access into that gender's restroom? Who is going to judge whether or not someone is actually transgender? If you don't believe some will take advantage of such policies, then I'm afraid the facts are not on your side; as outlined in this article by Amanda Prestigiacomo of The Daily Wire, it's already happened 5 times 5 Times ?Transgender? Men Abused Women And Children In Bathrooms | Daily Wire. Such instances are only going to become more prevalent as more businesses take measures to be more 'inclusive.' And what happens when it is mandated at the state, or, God forbid, the national level that businesses allow individuals to use the restroom aligned to their identity, regardless of biology?

This all begs the question: what should conservatives do? First, don't let your younger children use the restroom alone at Target, or any other establishment which has similar policies. Conservative women, be very careful about using the restrooms at such establishments, especially if you're alone. Perhaps consider investing in a taser, pepper-spray, or other legal defensive measures. Second, make your displeasure known. Write to these companies voicing your opinions, maybe even boycott them if possible. Policies like Target's are dangerous, and they should be opposed.
