Where in that notice does it say anything about the rights of the rest of us? If they want to do this Target needs to, at their expense, change every restroom to individual use only. I'll bet the CEO has a private RR he doesn't share with anyone.

No they don't. It's a corporation and private property.

You have no rights there.

Is it ok to 'identify' as the other sex temporarily if there's a line for your sex's restroom? ;?

Also in the news today, saying there are only two sexes will get you fired.

I have the right not to go there; which I already exercise.

Or if there is a hottie headed to the changing room? This has the makings of a very lucrative lawsuit.

10 years too late with that advice. Did it one time and decided it really wasn't the place for me.

So,, If inside of your twisted barely functioning brain you wish you were born with a Pussy instead of a Dick,, its ok for you to use the woman's bathroom? Even though you are a man? WTF is wrong with corporate america? so afraid of offending anyone thats its sickening. Don't the people that make these rules have children? would you want you daughter in the same rest room as a man thats not sure what he is or wants to be?,, makes me sick,,

Were I concerned about who was in the bathroom, my daughter wouldn't be in there.
For the record, on many occasions I opted not to let my young daughters use the restroom in retail establishments for the very reason you cite.
Kids disappear or are molested in retail restrooms with some frequency.
Target's statement is predictable. If it offends you I'm sure you will shop elsewhere.
If enough of the offended shop elsewhere to make a measurable impact, I'm sure Target won't make the correlation.

Mickey D's has the same policy. A close friend was in the men's room taking a leak when in walked a 17-18 year old girl, an employee no less, who proceeded to occupy a stall and do her (its) business.
My friend was a bit taken aback by this and asked to speak with the store manager who told him it was company policy to let employees use whichever bathroom they felt most comfortable in.

That was this winter and I haven't been to a McDonalds since then.

I think I'd get stage fright if I saw that.

You've never been to a crowded bar and see a women in desperation use the mens room? It doesn't bother me. But that is completely situational.
