Upset by Target’s new policy preventing discrimination against transgender staff and customers, anti-LGBT activist Dave Daubenmire led a two-man protest inside a Target store in Ohio yesterday, stationing himself at the entrance to the store with a sign reading “Caution: Men may be in Women’s Restrooms!”
Daubenmire told police officers who asked him to leave because he was trespassing on store property that Target is breaking the law and putting women and girls at risk, noting that “as a Christian man, I have a moral obligation to protect the women and the children who might be abused in that restroom.”
Daubenmire said that he was simply helping the officers do their job because Target restrooms will become a place of mayhem, including fights and sexual assaults.
“I’m trying to make your job easier,” he told the police officers.
The activist plans to try his stunt again tonight at the same Heath, Ohio, store, posting this anti-LGBT rant on his Facebook page.
