Targeting Target

Follow up: Target CEO Responds to Transgender Bathroom Protests: 'Our Focus on Safety Is Unwavering' 

Someone noted, "With Target's new policy, it's unverifiable. You cannot verify a person's intent..." 

The article tells us that Target CEO Bryan Cornell insisted "that Target has no plans to reverse its bathroom policy." He defended the stance by comparing this issue to the African-American Civil Rights struggle in the 1960s. Every African-American -- and every thinking person -- ought to be outraged by this. How can anyone suggest and approve of such a comparison? The transgender issue is one going on (or not) in the minds of those affected, and cannot be verified. Racial identity is natural and is easily noticed. These are not the same thing.
