Conservative groups are again calling for a boycott of Target stores over its bathroom policies after Chicago police said a man exposed his genitals to a young girl inside a stall and fled the scene.
NBC Chicago reports that the crime took place on Sunday when a mother, who wasn’t named, was with her young daughter in the women’s restroom at the Target store in the South Loop. Chicago police say that the man pushed into the stall with the little girl, exposed his genitals to her, and then left the bathroom.
Police are on the lookout for the suspect, but the incident has angered shoppers.
“It’s very sad. Children are innocent,” said Target shopper Stanley Hughley. “However old the pedophile was, it’s wrong. It’s pure evil no matter how you look at it.”
Conservative voices, such as Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, have said that no one should be shocked.
“Target prides itself in its policy that allows biological men to use women’s restrooms,” Graham wrote on Facebook Tuesday, referring to Target’s decision to allow customers and employees to use the bathroom of their choosing regardless of gender.
“Customers interviewed were right — it’s very sad. And it is so preventable. The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target stores — you can sign it at www.afa.net/target,” he urged.
“Call the Target headquarters at 612-304-6073 and let them know that you think they should change their decision and make their restrooms safe again. And you can voice your concerns on the Target Facebook page.”
The petition has been signed by over 1.5 million people and explains that Target is suffering financially from the controversy.
