While Target remains steadfast in allowing men to enter women's bathrooms and fitting rooms, the number of child victims of sexual crimes occurring in its stores continues to rise.
Last week, in a Chicago area Target store, a man forced himself into a bathroom stall being occupied by a young child and sexually exposed himself to her. The man ran away before police could arrive.
According to news reports, the incident happened in the middle of the afternoon on Sunday, March 25.
No Target employee questioned the man, or attempted to stop him from entering the women's restroom because Target’s official policy allows men free and unrestricted access. This policy has resulted in over a dozen crimes being committed by sexual predators taking advantage of it.
"It's very sad. Children are innocent," Stanley Hughley, a shopper at the Target store, said. "However old the pedophile was, it's wrong. It’s pure evil no matter how you look at it."
As we have stated many times, our worries stem from both the real and potential threat that predators and voyeurs, or anyone with evil intentions, would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children - and we have plenty of incidents to show that they have.
AFA has outlined just 10 examples that show why Target should immediately rescind its dangerous policy and keep men out of women's bathrooms and dressing rooms. As long as Target continues to allow men free and unrestricted access into women's dressing rooms and restrooms, these sexual violations against women and little girls will continue to occur.
There are still people you know who are unfamiliar with Target's dangerous policy. Will you help spread the warning and let your family and friends know about the Target boycott?
