Christian Activists ‘Test’ Target By Sending Men Into Women’s Rooms

Christian Activists ‘Test’ Target By Sending Men Into Women’s Rooms May 2, 2016

Creating a problem where none exists, Christian activists send men into women’s bathrooms in an attempt to sabotage Target’s transgender-inclusive restroom policy.

Right Wing Watch reports Christian activists associated with The American Family Association have been “testing” Target’s transgender-inclusive policy by sending men into women’s restrooms.

In a recent interview with “Breitbart News Daily,” Sandy Rios, Director of Governmental Affairs for the American Family Association, spoke out against Target’s transgender-inclusive bathroom policy.

Rios’ group, the American Family Association, is a Christian hate group that promotes propaganda and hate speech against LGBT people while pretending to protect children.

More than one million people have signed a petition sponsored by the American Family Association promising to boycott Target because of its new transgender-inclusive bathroom policy.

After Stephen Bannon, the program’s host, claimed that rather than being inclusive, Target is “trying to exclude people who are decent, hard-working people who don’t want their four-year-old daughter to have to go into a bathroom with a guy with a beard in a dress;” Rios replied:

I think there’s no question that when you say that there are no barriers in the bathroom, and that if men or women feel like they are men or women, the opposition of however they are equipped, and you have no restrictions, the net effect will be that people will not be stopped. We’ve already had people testing this, going into Targets and men trying to go into bathrooms. There is absolutely no barrier.

Rios continued:

And so the chief concern, even more than just, I think, trauma, certainly for little girls of having men dressed like women coming in their bathrooms, the chief concern of the American Family Association is the predators who will take advantage.

Writing at Danthropology, Dan Arel comments on the story:

Odd, it seems the only perverts “taking advantage” of this law are the American Family Association activists who are breaking the law and entering bathrooms of their opposite gender to cause a disturbance. They are the only ones violating these little girls they are so concerned with.

Arel is correct. The only perverts in this scenario is Rios’ band of male Christian activists harassing women trying to use the restroom at Target.

Ostensibly, Rios and her Christian hate group claims to protect “women and children,” but in reality they are a thinly veiled expression of Christian bigotry and hatred towards the transgender community.

Bottom line: Sending Christian men into women’s restrooms to harass and intimidate Target customers is despicable, and reflects the ultimate immorality of Rios and the American Family Association.
