Walgreens Adopts Transgender Bathroom Policy Allowing Men into Women’s Restrooms – Here’s How to Respond


Walgreens bathroom

The American Family Association (AFA) is alerting supporters of a new policy at Walgreens store nationwide that allows transgender individuals to use any bathroom they choose.

This policy, identical to a policy already in force at Target stores nationwide, could open the door to dangerous encounters inside pubic women’s restrooms.


The new Walgreens bathroom policy was created with the input of the ACLU, and the company states “the intent of this policy is to support transgender individuals in our stores and facilities and foster an environment of inclusion and mutual respect.” The policy explicitly states that “All individuals have a right to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual’s gender identity, regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth.”

The policy was actually set late last year, but is only now coming to light.

The AFA Alert

AFA sent out the following alert to supporters, which details how Walgreens customers can voice their displeasure.

In a shocking policy announcement, Walgreens has now directed its stores to allow men full and unrestricted access to women’s restrooms in all of its 8,100 stores.

On Nov. 17, 2017, Walgreens distributed this memo stating, “All individuals have a right to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual’s gender identity, regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth.”

The policy came as the result of being pressured by the ACLU of Southern California.

Since a similar public policy was announced by Target Stores, Inc. two years ago, dozens of women and children have been victimized by male predators inside Target stores.

Walgreens’ new policy could potentially result in female customers becoming victims of voyeurism, sexual assault and physical attack.
