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.

“Nearly everyone has a mother, wife, daughter or friend who is put in jeopardy by this policy,” AFA President Tim Wildmon said. “Predators and voyeurs would take advantage of the policy to prey on those who are vulnerable.”

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also has grave concerns – and he expressed them in a letter to Target’s chief executive officer.

“It is possible that allowing men in women’s restrooms could lead to criminal and otherwise unwanted activity,” Paxton wrote in the letter obtained exclusively by Fox News.
