Target boycott


Introduction by The Editor:
This page is about the nation-wide boycott of Target stores resulting from the company's decision to allow transvestites into their stores' opposite-sex restrooms.  The boycott has been kept quiet by the national news media; however, the internet has bypassed the news media (again) to spread the word, and the boycott has been very effective.  (Subsequent news reports about Target's sales slump and plummeting stock price have put the blame everywhere except the restroom policy.)  Target is being boycotted because they made the decision to take the lead in this fight.  Other stores and businesses may eventually follow, but Target wanted to stand out as the trend-setter.




Target's Chief Sounds Alarm on Pullback by Hispanic Shoppers.  Target Corp.  Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell is sounding alarm bells over the state of Hispanic shoppers in the U.S. — a key growth demographic for many retailers and consumer brands.  "The Hispanic consumer in the U.S. is shopping much less," Cornell said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech event Tuesday [7/18/2017] in Aspen, Colorado.  "They are staying home.  They are going out less often."

The Editor says...
The article immediately above makes no mention of perverts in the restrooms, or a nationwide boycott.  Instead, the writer seems to blame President Trump and an irrational fear of deportation for Target's problems.  That might be plausible if every retailer in town had the same problem, but Target is the one store that's whining about poor sales.  Maybe Target's problem has something to do with competition, in addition to the pervert-friendly restrooms.

Target's Moonbattery Has Been Costing It a Fortune.  The left-wing social engineers who run Target are discovering that moonbattery does not pay: [...] That is, men were invited to use private facilities intended for women, as part of the progressive War on Reality. [...] Sure enough, perverts have taken advantage of the policy.

The Target boycott cost more than anyone expected — and the CEO was blindsided.  Target triggered a nationwide boycott last year with a single blog post — and it turns out the message was as big of a shock to the company's CEO as it was to some shoppers.  The blog post, published in April 2016, publicized a policy that said transgender customers were welcome to use the bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity.

Target shares plunge on weak sales outlook.  Target Corp. reported a steeper-than-expected decline in fourth-quarter same-store sales and said it expected sales to continue to fall this fiscal year, sending its shares tumbling 13 percent in premarket trading Tuesday [2/28/2017].  The company has struggled with declining sales as shoppers increasingly gravitate to online retailers such as Amazon.com Inc. and spend more on big-ticket purchases such as cars and home renovations rather than electronics, food and apparel.

The Editor says...
Or maybe it's because Target took the lead in welcoming transvestites and perverts into their restrooms, and now there's a massive nationwide boycott of Target as a result.

Unprecedented Target sale spurred by boycott.  After a nationwide boycott dropped Target sales for the first time in years following its controversial transgender policy, the large retailer is announced the launch of a first-or-its-kind sale to win customers back.  The unprecedented storewide 10-percent discount on everything in its stores and online was announced by the pro-LGBT corporation in an effort to bring in more back-to-school purchases and boost shopper traffic on Sunday.

Target bathroom boycott is costing the company $20 million and shopper traffic is down for the first time in years.  Target's decision to take a stance on a social cause appears to be bad for business.  Shopper traffic has been declining for the first time in years, ever since the company issued a statement in April, saying transgender customers were free to use whichever bathroom they wanted at their store locations.  The statement was in response to a North Carolina bill that was signed into law in March, requiring students at state school to sue the bathrooms of their birth gender.

Target to spend $20 million on single-stall bathrooms after backlash to its restroom policy.  Target said Wednesday it is preparing to spend $20 million in the coming months to add single-stall bathrooms along with men's and women's restrooms in its stores, a move meant to accommodate shoppers who have expressed concern about the retailers' policy of allowing customers and employees to use the bathroom that corresponds to the gender they identify with.  "Some of our guests clearly are uncomfortable with our policy, and some are really supportive," said Cathy Smith, Target's chief financial officer, in a conference call wither reporters.

The Editor says...
You'll never see me in a Target store again, even if there's a bathroom with my name on the door and a deadbolt lock.  Target's upper management wanted to be the leaders in this battle over the alleged rights of deviant sex perverts.  There are plenty of other places to shop.

5 Reasons Why Fewer People Are Shopping at Target.  If you've been shopping less at Target lately, you're not alone.  Foot traffic in stores is down 2.2%.  Comparable store sales fell 1.1% during the May-July period, the first time in two years there's been a decline during these months.

The Editor says...
Bias alert:  The article above included no mention of the company actively inviting deviant sex perverts into the women's restrooms, or anything about an effective and well-deserved nationwide boycott.

Update:  Clueless writers at MSN are completely baffled by this development!
People May Be Unhappy With Target, and It's Starting to Show.  Target has long been loved by people because it's a fun place to shop.  At least it used to be a fun place to shop.  Customer satisfaction with the total shopping experience at Target has declined for a fourth consecutive period, according to a new survey of 2,500 people done by investment bank Cowen.  Declines in customer satisfaction were seen across the board, led by drops in customer service, merchandise selection and product quality.  Overall, Cowen says customer satisfaction at Target plunged 383 basis points to 66.7%.  It appears unhappy Target shoppers could be taking their business elsewhere.

Texarkana Repeals Transgender Bathroom Ordinance.  The issue of transgender access to bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex — which came to the forefront of the public mind in April when Target announced its new policy — has been quietly incubating behind the scenes for longer than most Americans are aware.  The battle has been brewing for many months in places as diverse as Washington State and Texarkana, Arkansas, as the radical Left has conspired to create this issue and introduce it by stealth and deception.  And while communities all over the country are waking up to find that this issue has moved into their cities, counties, and states, many are organizing efforts to defeat it and return sanity to their communities.

Men Flood Target to Film Teen Girls after Allowing Males in Female Changing Rooms.  Retail giant Target has been in the news a lot lately following their transgender bathroom policy and the many crimes occurring in its stores.  However, now, it appears the retail outlet is face a wave of men who are snooping on young teen girls and videoing them as they are changing due to the policies of the store allowing men in women's changing rooms.

Target CEO takes heat from shareholders about transgender bathroom policy.  Brian Cornell, the chairman and CEO of Target, took several questions from disgruntled audience members at the annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday concerning the retail giant's stance on transgender bathroom and fitting room access.  Justin Danhof, who heads the Free Enterprise Project and was in attendance at the meeting, asked Mr. Cornell whether he believes those who oppose the company's stance are bigots.  "Didn't answer the question," Mr. Danhof said of the business executive's response.  "He gave a vacuous statement on, 'We believe in diversity, we believe in inclusion, and everyone should feel safe in our stores.'"

Target CEO Claims Bathroom Policy Not Hurting Sales.  Target made a decision to jump into the middle of a politically charged issue.  They made an open statement that their restrooms and changing rooms would be pro-transgender.  As a result, a massive revolt and boycott against Target happened.  Sales and stock prices of Target dropped like a rock.

Target boycott has directly cost company $9.2 billion in market cap to date.  There is some confusion and denial in the mainstream media over the real impacts of the ongoing boycott of Target because of its controversial bathroom policies allowing men into women's rooms and vice versa, which came into force April 19.  The left-of-center Associated Press released a superficial report last week on the causes of Target's current financial situation: [...]

Woman marches through Target blasting transgender bathroom policy.  A video of a woman parading around a Target store with a Bible protesting the retail company's transgender bathroom policy has gone viral.  Fox 8 Cleveland reported Tuesday [5/17/2016] the unidentified woman in the Youtube video is 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."  The woman, who said she's a mother of 12, called Target's bathroom policy a "wicked practice" and said she wouldn't shop there.  Some people begin to walk out of the store during the two-minute video.

What's Really Behind America's Transgender Mania?  With the U.S. economy on life support, record numbers of illegal aliens invading the nation, and ISIS targeting the American homeland with mass-casualty attacks, the Obama administration has made transgender rights — which Vice President Joe Biden calls "the civil rights issue of our time" — an urgent focus of its final months.  However, spurred on by reports of an 8-year-old girl being strangled unconscious by a 33-year-old man in a girls' restroom Friday, Americans are pushing back.  Obama's just-announced school edict mandating transgender bathrooms for the entire nation's children is being met with fierce resistance.  Target Corporation's stock value plunged after more than a million Americans publicly pledged to boycott the store over its bathroom policy, and North Carolina is now suing the federal government for its "bullying," "overreaching" attack on that state's new bathroom law.

Deviant behavior must be really important to them.  More important than staying in business.
Target's Cornell says retailer stands by its transgender bathroom policy.  Target Corp. will stick with its policy of allowing transgender customers to choose the bathroom they wish to use as part of the company's long history of supporting diversity and inclusion, chief executive Brian Cornell said Wednesday [5/11/2016].  At the same time, he offered an olive branch to those who have been upset by the policy and said the company will add family restrooms to all of its stores, an option for people who worry about the mixing of sexes in bathrooms.  Cornell made the remarks during an appearance on CNBC's "Squawk Box" program.  He noted that more than 1,400 of the company's 1,800 stores already have family restrooms.  In the next few months, Target will put them in the rest of its stores.

Texas raises stink over Target's transgender bathrooms.  The Lone Star State is coming to the rescue of shoppers confused over whether to leave the seat up or down in Target's transgender bathrooms.  The nation's second-largest discount retailer announced on April 19 that they would "welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender."  In response, more than 1.1 million customers joined a boycott sponsored by the American Family Association.

The Editor says...
In addition to the 1.1 million people who signed the petition, there are others, such as myself, who will not enter a Target store again.  I wasn't going to use their restroom anyway, but that's not the point.  The point is that Target is friendly to deviant sex perverts who are gradually ruining our society.  Target has stepped in it.  There are plenty of other similar stores, and the prices of nearly everything are lower at all of Target's competitors.

Target Stock Drops 4.2 Percent in Wake of LGBT Bathroom Policy Announcement.  In the wake of publicizing its policy to allow people to use the bathrooms and changing facilities that correspond with their gender identity, Target stock has dropped 4.2 percent in the past two weeks.

Target Stock Drops in Wake of Transgender Bathroom Policy.  Target's stock has dropped and more than 1 million consumers have pledged to boycott the retail giant after it announced an "inclusive" policy allowing individuals to use the restroom or fitting room of their choice, based on their gender identity.

Politics Has Ruined Everything Fun.  Target was my all-time favorite store — bright, well-lit, with fun displays and great products.  But Target couldn't allow that cheerful joviality in their stores.  Nope — they had to step in and take a stand against 99.7% of their customer base.  They proudly issued a policy that anyone — man, woman, pervert, pedophile — can use the bathroom of his choice.  The result:  I don't shop at Target anymore, because the stigma of politics has infected the store and because I'm hesitant to use the bathroom.

Soft Target.  About 1.4 million people signed a pledge to boycott Target stores over the company's transgender bathroom and fitting room policy.  Target's same-store sales during the same quarter were down for the first time in two years.  Is there a connection?  Target officials say no, and they have been giving other reasons ever since they announced on Aug. 17 that foot traffic had fallen 2.2 percent and comparable store sales were down 1.1 percent in the May to July period.  Target says sluggish grocery sales, a clumsy transition of Target's pharmacies to CVS, and falling sales of Apple products were to blame.  Retail analysts also point to competition from Amazon.com.

One million Americans vow to boycott Target over transgender bathrooms.  More than one million people have decided they will no longer buy their Nutter Butters or Wet Wipes at Target.  The American Family Association launched a boycott of the nation's second largest retailer a week ago — over Target's corporate policy allowing men who identify as women to use the bathrooms and fitting rooms of their choosing.

Pledge to Boycott Target on Pro-LBGT Stance Reaches 1,000,000 Signatures.  A pledge to boycott all Target stores over the company's stance on transgender issues reached 1 million signatures on Thursday night, one week after it was launched.  The pledge came as a response to the company's decision to open restrooms and changing rooms to men and women who identify as the gender opposite their own biological sex.  The one million signatures represent a major victory for those who hold to the biological and cultural belief that human beings are either male or female.  Last month, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed a bill stating that multiple-stall restrooms should be reserved to persons who are biologically male or female.  Companies across the nation shot back, condemning the common-sense law as "discriminatory" and "anti-LGBT."

Target Stock Drops Amid New Bathroom Policy And Boycott.  Target stock prices dropped in 10 days after the retailer announced a new policy to allow customers to use whichever bathroom or fitting room accords to their gender identity.  On Friday [4/29/2016], the shares of Target Corporation Common Stock fell 2.52 percent in one day, according to recent reports.  In addition since April 19th, the day they announced the new policy, the stock went from a share value of $84.14 to $79.27 per share.  That's a drop of 5.8 percent in 10 days.  The Family Policy institute says they estimate that to be a loss to the company of $2.5 billion dollars.  Shortly following Target's new policy, the American Family Association launched a petition to boycott the store.  As of Friday afternoon [4/29/2016] they had received over one million signatures.

Target's market cap down $6 billion since start of transgender bathroom policy.  After announcing on April 19 that it "welcome[s] transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," Target faced an instant and broad public backlash that led to a boycott petition being posted online by the American Family Association the next day.  The petition currently has 1.24 million supporters, and undoubtedly a much larger share of the public disagrees with Target's policy.  If stock prices are any indication, the boycott effort and other negative publicity have severely hurt Target's financials.

Target is being boycotted because they made the decision to take the lead in this fight.  Other stores and businesses may eventually follow, but Target wanted to stand out as the trend-setter.  They won't see any more of my money.

Target boycott reaches another milestone.  The American Family Association's "Boycott Target" petition has received 1.5 million signatures.  AFA's Walker Wildmon made the announcement earlier today on American Family Radio.  "It has officially reached 1.5 million signatures," said Wildmon.  "So that's a great victory, it's a great milestone in what I view is a highly successful boycott of Target."  The announcement comes one year to the day that Target announced a policy allowing transgender employees and customers to use the bathrooms and changing rooms for the gender with which they say they identify.  AFA then announced a boycott, saying the policy puts women and children at risk of sexual predators who take advantage of the transgender policy.

Stand Up to Left-wing Activist Bullies.  Our cowardly silence, not alerting the public to the depths of the Left's assaults on all things moral and upright has emboldened Leftist activists to continue spitting upon, slapping, and punching traditional American values every day.  Consequently, Leftist activists plan to legalize 12 new perversions and trample more cherished values underfoot. [...] Americans are finally pushing back.  Almost 500,000 Americans signed a pledge to boycott Target for allowing men to use women's restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores.

ABC Censors Massive Boycott Over Target's New Transgender Policy.  ABC loves citizens speaking out on controversial issues — except when it goes against the liberal agenda.  The boycott pledge against Target's transgender policy boasts more than 700,000 signatures.  But the American public wouldn't know that from watching ABC's news shows.  It's not like ABC can plead ignorance of the outcry by Target customers.  The other two broadcast networks, NBC and CBS, considered the boycott a story important enough for their national news shows this week.

650,000 People Sign Pledge to Boycott Target Stores After Company Announces Transgender Bathroom Policy.  Target Stores recently announced they have a new policy regarding the use of the restroom and changing room facilities at their stores. [...] In response, over 650,000 people have now signed a petition up at the American Family Association pledging to boycott Target (654,735 at the time of writing this).

Of course:  Missouri man caught filming women in Target dressing room.  Oh by the way, he'd done it before, and when cops arrested him, he had a loaded handgun.  Let's get this out of the way right at the start:  No one is mistaking Matthew Foerstel for a "transgender person" for lack of the better one-word noun I'm sure someone will come up with very soon.  He's clearly just a male pervert going where he's not supposed to be.  I don't even think he's claiming to "identify as a woman."

ESPN Fires Analyst for Opposing Men in Women's Bathrooms.  It has been established that the "transgender" agenda isn't based on science but ideology, yet this hasn't stopped entities such as retailer Target from allowing men to use women's restrooms.  And it didn't stop sports network ESPN from firing former MLB pitcher and game analyst Curt Schilling for criticizing that very policy.  The controversy began Tuesday [4/19/2016] when Schilling weighed in on the North Carolina "bathroom bill" and shared a satirical meme critical of the transgender agenda on Facebook.

Boycott Target underway after superstore declares men can use women's bathrooms.  After Target announced that it would welcome "transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," the American Family Association is now asking customers to boycott the superstore in a new petition.  "The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target after the retail giant said it would allow men to use the women's restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores," the petition states.  "This means a man can simply say he "feels like a woman today" and enter the women's restroom... even if young girls or women are already in there."
