As the boycott against Target and its transgender bathroom policies continues, a pro-family group is warning parents that as summer season is approaching, they should not allow their young daughters to try on swimsuits in the retail giant's dressing rooms.
"We need more people to sign up for the boycott. We're launching something this week. We're now heading into bathing suit season. … Do not let your young girls and teen girls buy their summer clothes or bathing suits at Target," Andrea Lafferty, president of the Traditional Values Coalition, told Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM.
Well over 1.2 million people have signed a separate petition by the American Family Association pledging to boycott Target stores for their new bathroom policies, which allow people to use the restroom or changing facility that corresponds with their gender identity, instead of their birth sex. more >>

Former megachurch pastor Rob Bell has recently declared that he rarely uses the term "American" anymore when describing himself or others.
In an interview with the popular digital publication Downpebbles, Bell said he preferred not using the term "American," believing that United States citizens should go beyond selfish titles.
"I don't actually use the word 'American,' because I think Amerigo Vespucci would be mortified that a country with very strong codes of in-and-out was started in his name," said Bell. more >>
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is advising Christians not to talk about their faith unless they're asked to do so.
As head of the 88 million-member Anglican Communion, Welby was asked at an interfaith event where he draws the line between evangelism and proselytization.
"I draw the line in terms of respect for the other; in starting by listening before you speak; in terms of love that is unconditional and not conditional to one iota, to one single element on how the person responds to your own declaration of faith; and of not speaking about faith unless you are asked about faith," said Welby, according to the Telegraph. more >>
A poll has found that the majority of Americans do not agree with President Barack Obama's directive that public schools allow students to go into bathrooms based on their gender identity, not their birth sex, and instead back Donald Trump's idea to let states decide for themselves.
As Breitbart News reported on Sunday, the mid-May poll by Rasmussen Reports found that as many as 65 percent of the respondents back the Republican Presidential Candidate's proposal to allow state and local governments to decide on bathroom policy, rather than adapting a one-size-fits-all directive.
"I believe it should be states' rights and I think the states should make the decision, they're more capable of making the decision," Trump explained his position earlier in May in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America." more >>
Yale University announced for its 315th commencement that it will now offer gender-neutral bathrooms in 23 of its buildings, with the aim to be more inclusive.
"Yale aims to be a leader on this front," said Tamar Gendler, dean of Yale's Faculty of Arts and Sciences, according to The Associated Press on Sunday. "Part of what is important about the all-gender bathroom project and about putting it at the top of our commencement site, is this is about public signaling."
What is more, Yale professors have now been tasked with using "preferred pronouns" when addressing students, and transgender students will be allowed to change their names on their school identification cards and web portal at no extra change. more >>
