Flush Target campaign kicks off in Minnesota, Virginia as more boycott over transgender policy

A new campaign to encourage shoppers to boycott Target over their new “transgender” bathroom literally took to the streets Monday in Minnesota.

A #FlushTarget truck, bearing an image of a little girl being surprised by a man in the women’s bathroom, and the text “What about her rights to privacy and protection?” will be visting every single Target store in Target’s home state over the next few weeks.

The #FlushTarget campaign is being organized by LifeSiteNews.

“Everyone has the right to use the bathroom safely and in privacy without fear of being raped or assaulted,” said Claire Chretien, national spokeswoman for LifeSiteNews#FlushTarget campaign. “Unfortunately, Target, one of America’s largest retail chains, has decided to let any man access women’s bathrooms in their stores.”

Under Target’s new policy, announced April 19, any man at any time and for any reason can decide to use the women’s bathrooms or fitting rooms in its stores, based upon their subjective “gender identity.” “In our stores, we demonstrate our commitment to an inclusive experience in many ways,” the retailer said in announcing the policy change.

“We are not boycotting Target out of fear of the LGBT community,” Chretien stated. “Target can accommodate men that dress as women in a way that doesn’t put women and our young children at risk. Instead of seeking solutions that are safe for both transgender people and women and children, Target has embraced an approach that emboldens predators, threatens women’s safety, and undermines any basic sense of decency.”

LifeSite was joined by the Child Protection League at the press conference. “Target’s policy puts women and children at risk,” the group’s Board Chairman, Julie Quist, said.

“Sexual assault is a crime of opportunity,” she added. “Target has created the opportunity with its new policy.”

LifeSite’s “Flush Target” campaign is also sending a billboard truck to each of Target’s stores in the company’s home state. Duluth had the first visit today, followed by Virginia, Grand Rapids and Bemidji.

Tomorrow’s visits include Brainerd, Moorhead, Fergus, Alex, St. Cloud and St. Cloud East, followed by Monticello.
