    ? it just make it mandatory that companies also have a Co-ed bathroom. I hate having to take my daughter to the bathroom and I have to either take her to the men bathroom or send her in by herself. I stopped taking her places because of that.

    Same thing Alabama did. Introduced some ? bill aim at illegal immagrants, saying they were taking their jobs. The immagrants fleed and they had no one to pick their crops for no money, their economy took a huge hit. Then they quietly repealed it.
    The funny thing about the video VICE did on it was, they had a town hall meeting or something and a bunch of angry farmers show up. This one farmer was saying how mexicans are good hard workers and Americans are lazy (which isnt exactly true) but the irony of it is he was ? obese calling people lazy.

    Co-ed bathrooms sounds like a potential circus. Why not make it easy and everbody go to the facility that matches the ? you have on your body when nature calls. You are only in there roughly ten minutes. Not nearly enough time for oppression to set in.

    They have Co-ed bathrooms in Europe and on warships. And Macys have family bathrooms.

    More than 500,000 boycott Target over transgender bathroom policy

    A conservative Christian activist group has gained more than half a million signatures and counting from people pledging to boycott Target over its transgender bathroom policy.

    The petition started by the American Family Association on Wednesday raises concerns that Target's inclusive stance on transgender rights encourages sexual predators and puts women and young girls in danger, because "a man can simply say he 'feels like a woman today' and enter the women's restroom."

    The boycott has more than 517,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon, marking it as one of AFA's most popular campaigns.

    "This is the best response we’ve ever had this quick," says AFA President Tim Wildmon, attributing the protest's viral nature to the fact that "everybody knows who Target is, and it’s an easy-to-understand issue."

    Wildmon says Target stands "to lose a lot of customers who won't come back." But Target is standing by its policy.

    "We certainly respect that there are a wide variety of perspectives and opinions," says Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder. "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."

    She added that hundreds of Target stores "have single-stall, family restrooms for those who may be more comfortable with that option."

    Target made its position public in a blog post last week, stating that the company welcomes "transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity." The announcement comes as legislation on transgender issues in multiple states has spurred several major corporations and businesses to take a stance on LGBT rights.

    Deutsche Bank halted a plan to add 250 jobs to an outpost of the company in North Carolina after the state passed a law requiring transgender people using public bathrooms to use the one associated with their gender at birth.

    The American Family Association, a non-profit based in Tupelo, Miss., frequently protests on issues that target what it considers traditional family values. Its more recent campaigns include canceling the organization's use of PayPal after that company pulled back on plans to open a new facility in North Carolina due to the state's transgender bathroom law.

    Coed bathrooms aren't that serious. The dorms in my school had them when I was in college. If college students can handle it so can adults....
