Half Million Pledge to Boycott Target over Transgender Policy

Texas to Instruct Schools Not to Obey Obama's Transgender Bathroom Decree

A Texas woman is speaking out after encountering a man in a department store's women's dressing room. 

Lisa Sickles told CBS Dallas that she quickly alerted a Ross store employee in Mesquite, but was told that the man was "representing himself as a woman today."

But Sickles said the man was in no way dressed as a woman. 

"He had on jeans, a t-shirt, 5 o'clock shadow, very deep voice. He was a man," she said.

Sickles was told that if she was uncomfortable that she would have to wait until the man was finished.

According to the report, a Ross customer service representative said customers may use the dressing room that applies to their gender identity.

Watch the report above.

The incident comes after Target triggered a boycott by announcing that shoppers at its stores could use the bathrooms and dressing rooms that match their gender identity. 

A petition to boycott Target over the policy has garnered more than 1.2 million signatures.

Last week, it was reported that the Obama administration would send a letter to all public schools telling them to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

Texas responded by saying it would direct its public schools not to obey the administration's decree.
