Buyer beware -- Target's still a scary place to shop

Target shopping cartsAccording to Target, its policy allowing people to use opposite-sex bathrooms and/or changing rooms is meant to be inclusive. But the American Family Association (AFA) continues to boycott the retailer, maintaining that it puts women and children at risk of sexual predators who take advantage of the transgender policy.

To date, many news and police reports have been filed about women and girls being photographed or recorded. That includes an incident over the summer at a Target on McKnight Road in Ross Township, Pennsylvania.

WPXI News reported that a man took pictures of a 13-year-old girl as she was trying on clothes in the dressing room.

"Women who say they shop at this particular store often say someone sneaking pictures just isn't something they've ever worried about until now," said WPXI reporter Renee Wallace.

"It's like you're just going into a store and you're just shopping for clothes, so you just assume that it's safe," an unidentified female told WPXI.

Another female interviewed by the television station did not think it would be easy for a man to get in the dressing room, which is located in the back of the store. "It's kind of tucked away in the corner," she said.

Target told WPXI that it was aware of the situation in Ross Township and that it was working with the local authorities. But as AFA points out, Target employees are not allowed to stand in the way of someone trying to enter an opposite-sex restroom or changing room.

"There are still people you know who are unfamiliar with Target's dangerous policy," AFA says in a new Action Alert email. "Forward this information, call Target headquarters, or voice your concerns on Target's Facebook page, and support our ongoing efforts to promote the Target boycott."
