On April 19, Target announced that anyone can now use their restrooms or dressing rooms, regardless of gender.
With its announcement, Target has made the statement that they are a company run by enlightened progressives who care more about equal rights than you and I.
Their statement, so chock-full of feel-good liberal buzzwords, it could have (and may have) been written by the Obama administration. On its corporate website they posted that, “We believe that everyone – every team member, every guest, and every community – deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally. We welcome transgendered team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”
So we deserve to be protected from discrimination, just not from predators. They also mentioned that they “welcome transgendered team members” (store employees) yet strangely, I haven’t seen anywhere the number of transgender “team members” they have. And even odder is that the mainstream media has not bothered to ask. I wonder why that is, he asked rhetorically.
Instead, all we hear is the constant refrain of how anyone who doesn’t agree with the Target policy is a Bible-thumping myopic Neanderthal. When we with common sense dare to question the sanity of the Target policy, the left claims that we are unnecessarily whipping up opposition and just being absurd.
Yet we warned from day one what will happen. I don’t mean to imply that Target, as a private company, can’t institute any policy it wishes. They have every right to and once initiated, all who enter their stores must comply. If someone disagrees with a store policy they can turn around and walk away. Evidently, many have.
But still, we warned them. We warned that their policy would be abused, not by transgenders, but by sick twisted perverts and son of a gun, we were right again.
Not four days after the Target announcement, one of these sick pervs was arrested for secretly filming girls and women in a Target dressing room in Brentwood, Missouri. He was arrested after holding a camera phone under a dressing room door while a female shopper tried on a swimsuit. Upon arrest it was discovered that he was also in possession of a loaded gun – but I’m sure the gun was to be used for self-defense and not for potential abduction. And as it turns out the pervert was not a first timer. He was also arrested in 2013 for being a pervert.
A few days later it happened at an Oklahoma Target, where a man was caught looking under a door while a woman was trying on clothes. The perv admitted to police that he’s done this at other Target stores.
The most recent incident happened at a Texas target where a man used his phone to video a young girl in a dressing room. Unfortunately he is still at large.
Just a few weeks into this wonderful freedom policy and already there’ve been several documented incidents. But these perverts are like cockroaches. You may only see one, but if there is one in plain sight, rest assured there are thousands in the shadows which have not been discovered.
So what do we think, no – what do we know this will lead to? Of course. Mere peeping toms will give rise to those who wish to act on those impulses. It will give rise to stalking and eventually to attacks either in dressing rooms or elsewhere, but due to the unlimited access. This will happen – Mark my words!
And when it does will the enlightened left hold Target responsible as they insist gun manufacturers be for shootings? No chance!
Nothing can derail the agenda – not voyeurism, assault or even rape. The barriers of normal civilized societies must be smashed at any and all cost. Hundreds or thousands of girls and women being violated in some form is a small price to pay for radical leftists to upend normality. That’s what it’s really all about.
