Target signTarget says it has no tolerance for someone violating another's privacy in one of its bathrooms and changing rooms but not everyone is buying that claim.

Target's “no tolerance” statement comes in response to recent news reports of a man being arrested after police allege he set up a camera inside a Target dressing room in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

Authorities allege Nathan Howard Wilson, 46, used his cellphone to record videos in a fitting room.

"This is not surprising," says Walker Wildmon of American Family Association, an organization boycotting Target over its policy allowing men inside women's restrooms and changing areas.

"What Target corporation has done is they've created an environment by their policies which openly allows men, even sexual predators, to access women's changing areas and women's restrooms,” Wildmon warns. “So this is an environment fostered by the Target corporation, and it's dangerous."

An open and proud ally of LGBT activism, Target says its policy allowing men in women's restrooms and changing areas (and vice versa) is meant to be inclusive for people who identify as transgender.

But AFA has long warned that sexual predators and voyeurs – straight men - will take advantage of the policy, thereby putting women and children at risk.

"It's been well over two years since we've met face to face or spoken to Target representatives," says Wildmon. "Since then, since we met with them in Minneapolis, they've shown no interest in coming to the table or no interest in rescinding their dangerous policy."

Similar cases of have occurred in various states.

According to Wildmon, the Target boycott is "still in effect" and the AFA website still lists the online sign-up, where 1.5 million has signed.
