One person demonstrated just how far Target department stores will take it’s new gender-neutral bathroom policy.
Andy Park, identifying himself as a man, walked into a St. Petersburg, Florida Target store dressed in men’s clothing and asked to use the ladies’ restroom.
“Sometimes I get uncomfortable in the men’s room,” was his only excuse.
After he was given the go-ahead, Park asked what would happen if a woman complained. He was told they’d take care of it. In other words, his “rights” were more important than a woman seeking privacy.
Watch the clip.
Mediaite requested a response from the retailer after it published Park’s video. This was Target’s reply.
Thanks for reaching out.
We certainly respect that there are a wide variety of perspectives and opinions. As a company that firmly stands behind what it means to offer our team an inclusive place to work — and our guests an inclusive place to shop – we continue to believe that this is the right thing for Target.
In short — they’re fine with it.
