(EDGE) -- The anti-gay hate group American Family Association's war with Target over the retail giant's transgender inclusive restroom policy escalated on Monday when during an interview with Breitbart News Daily, AFA mouthpiece Sandy Rios disclosed that her organization has been "testing" the mega-store chain by sending men into women's rooms, Right Wing Watch reports.

Target is "trying to exclude people who are decent, hard-working people who don't want their four-year-old daughter to have to go into a bathroom with a guy with a beard in a dress," Breitbart host Stephen Bannon said to Rios.

"I think there's no question that when you say that there are no barriers in the bathroom," Rios replied. "And that if men or women feel like they are men or women, the opposition of however they are equipped, and you have no restrictions, the net effect will be that people will not be stopped. We've already had people testing this, going into Targets and men trying to go into bathrooms. There is absolutely no barrier."

Rios' hate group American Family Association launched a petition urging their followers to boycott Target over its trans-inclusive policy. To date, the petition has garnered 1.156 million signatures.

Target's stock took a small hit following the announcement of its inclusive policy from 83.98 on April 19 to a one-month low of 79.50 on Friday April 29. Following Monday's Breitbart broadcast, the stock was up, closing at 80.13.
