A pro-family organization continues to sound the alarm over Target's policy allowing men in women's restrooms and changing areas.
According to NBCPhiladelphia.com, Sean Anderson of Elverson, Pennsylvania, was arrested in May after police say he drilled holes in multiple changing rooms at a Target in West Pottsgrove Township where authorities believe Anderson had been taking pictures of women and girls wearing few, if any, clothing items.
Anderson reportedly made multiple trips to and from the dressing rooms, and Target had already found and caulked over the holes at least once.
"That's creepy," one female shopper told NBCPhiladelphia.com. "I wouldn't feel comfortable whatsoever." Another shopper called it "scary."
This is not the first case of peeping toms or voyeurism at a Target. There have been many police and news reports about perverts at Target stores in various parts of the country.
The retail giant says its policy allowing people to use opposite-sex restrooms and changing rooms is meant to be inclusive for transgender employees and customers. Still, organizations such as American Family Association argue the policy puts women and children at risk of sexual predators who take advantage of the transgender policy. AFA actually began boycotting Target after the retailer announced its bathroom and changing room policy.
In the case involving the West Pottsgrove Township store, Target says it notified police. However, Walker Wildmon of American Family Association says Target had the ability to completely prevent this type of crime by not allowing a man inside the women's changing rooms.
"It's another case where Target is absolutely in denial," says Wildmon. "I'm a father, and the fact that Target has done nothing to hinder or stop or prevent incidents like this is absolutely unacceptable."
An AFA Action Alert emailed to people Monday encourages concerned citizens to forward the information to friends and family. It also asks consumers to call Target headquarters and let them know they are boycotting Target stores.
