Looks like the VDP Gazette is not the only ones upset about inclusivity over common sense equality. American Family Association began a petition over the transgender move:
While Americans are drawing boundaries for our society, we should also boycott states that force women to be exploited by these laws that policies like Target's emulate as well as any corporation that steps into the arena to force social justice stupidity.
Equality is one thing, but the transgender issue is not about equality. Men and women have equal access to their biologically necessary restrooms. Social justice has become a way to radicalize certain groups for civil unrest and violence.
Well, we're not going to give that to you. Instead, we are going to boycott you every time you start a stupid campaign to boycott common sense social norms and mores.
In addition to the boycott petition, the organization offers a resolution to the transgender issue:
One solution is a common-sense approach and a reasonable solution to the issue of transgendered customers: a unisex bathroom. Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided.
Men, no matter their feelings that day, should not be in the restrooms with women and girls.
If Target really wants to help the transgender community, then the department store chain would pressure the American Psychiatric Association into reclassifying transgender so that these people can receive the mental health assistance they deserve.
