The transgender bathroom issue is being called by some "the Selma of our times." Evidently, 400 years of slavery and abuse is tantamount to public bathroom access for them.
"It's a little demeaning to Martin Luther King and those who marched over the bridge in Selma, who were beaten, who were hung from trees, who were burned to death, who were cut up and thrown into rivers, who were buried without anybody even knowing them. It's a little demeaning," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program. "Not allowed to vote compared to, 'I want to go into the ladies' restroom, I feel uncomfortable.'"
That hasn't stopped Target from jumping on the PC train to accommodate 0.3% of the population at the expense of their female customers. Unfortunately, Target's new bathroom policy is an open invitation to creeps who want to perve on women — or worse.
Glenn told a story on air that confirms this exact scenario --- and Target not doing a thing to stop it.
"So yesterday, Bailey, who is our makeup artist, we're sitting in the makeup chair, and you know how us gals get when we're sitting in the makeup chair. We just gab. So she said a friend of hers went into a Target, and there was this creepy guy who was just leaning up against the wall in the bathroom," Glenn said.
When the young woman looked at him as if to question, "What are you doing here?" he said, "I have every right to be here, and you can't do anything about it."
She immediately left and reported the incident to Target management.
"I'm sorry. We can't do anything about that."
Target refused to remove the creepy guy --- not transgender, not dressed as a woman, not using the restroom --- from the women's facilities.
"This is their own policy," Glenn said. "This is not the government forcing you to do this. This is Target saying, 'I'm sorry, we can't do anything about it because it will make him uncomfortable.'"
This incident is exactly why more than 1,200,000 people have made the pledge to stop shopping at Target.
"It's why my wife won't shop there anymore," Pat said.
"My wife won't either," Glenn added.
If they won't listen to reason, maybe they'll listen to the bottom line.
