Mother marches through Target decrying retailer’s bathroom policy

A mother is featured on a video holding the Bible as she marches her family through a Target store denouncing the retailer’s bathroom policy.

“Attention Target customers,” the unidentified woman shouts in the video posted Saturday on YouTube. “Do not be deceived, Target would have you believe with their Mother’s Day displays that they love mothers and children. This is a deception. This is not love, and they’ve proven it by opening their bathrooms to perverted men. I’m a mother of 12 and I’m very disgusted by this wicked practice.”

Target has come under fire from Christian groups since bringing attention to its policy of allowing transgender customers' and employees' use of the bathroom or fitting room befitting their gender identities.

The American Family Association started a boycott to petition Target. It has received more than 1.2 million signatures. A man stood in the middle of a Portland Target store holding the Bible condemning the retailer in another YouTube video posted May 2.

Target made the statement last month in response to laws like North Carolina's controversial House Bill 2, also known as the “bathroom bill.” The legislation requires people use public restrooms and locker rooms based on the gender on their birth certificates.

“Everyone deserves to feel like they belong,” Target said its statement. “You'll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.”
