Video showing a woman protesting the bathroom policy at Target has gone viral. A video posted on YouTube shows the woman, who says she’s a mother of 12, carrying a Bible through the store and yelling, “America, when are you going to wake up? It’s time to take a stand and have a voice.” She calls the store’s bathroom policy a “wicked practice” and says she wouldn’t spend a penny there.
You can see other people with her in the video, which lasts less than two minutes, and then shows them walking out.
Target has said that in its stores, transgender people are free to use whichever restroom they feel comfortable with.
“We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” the company said.
“We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.”
