A spokesman for the American Family Association says bad policies produce bad results, and that's what is happening with giant retailer Target.
On June 15, police in Riverside, California, arrested a man on two counts of invasion of privacy.
Authorities say the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Jonathan Gonzalez of Riverside, was in what police are calling a co-ed dressing room secretly recording victims from an adjoining stall.
A spokesman for American Family Association says the pro-family organization keeps warning Target executives of such illicit acts after Target last year publicized its policy allowing men into womens' restrooms and changing rooms.
"When employees are not enforcing a distinct gender separation, then predators are able to access their victims," says Ed Vitagliano, executive vice president of AFA.
AFA has been boycotting Target because of its policy, which Target says is meant to be inclusive and allow transgender customers and employees to use the restrooms and changing rooms of the gender with which they say they identify.
AFA maintains sexual predators can and will take advantage of the transgender policy as evidenced by the numerous accounts from customers, most of them women.
"Bad policies produce bad results and that's what happening with Target," Vitagliano stresses.
"We certainly believe that the company has a right to make transgender customers comfortable," he adds. "However, many may show up in a Target and have to use the restroom. That's why we have suggested that a gender-neutral, single occupancy bathroom be provided for those customers."
Target has taken steps to add such facilities in its stores but the overall policy allowing men in women's restrooms remains in place.
"I don't know how long it's going to take, or how many of these examples it will take, before Target sees the fact that their policy is misguided and dangerous,” Vitagliano concludes.
