I attended the Counter Protest at Target last night. At one point I had a rather odd conversation with one of the protesters.
Just to clarify... Target has a policy of inclusion and allows people to use the bathroom they feel most comfortable in. The protesters (the man I talk to included) have decided this means that little girls are suddenly at risk, a deluded straw man argument if there ever was one.
I walked away from our Counter Protest (where we were loudly thanking Target for being awesome) to take a photo of the other side. My camera was rolling and the following exchange was recorded.
