It is time for Target to reconsider their transgender bathroom rule?
A 43-year old transgender woman was arrested for taking pictures of another woman in a dressing room.
The transgender whose name is Shauna Patricia Smith is jailed under her transgender name, Sean Smith.
The news release said that Sean Smith committed the crime in Target, but her real name is Shauna.
Shauna hung her cell phone over the divider in the dressing room and took pictures of another woman changing.
The woman confronted the transgender voyeur, but she ran away.
The Sheriff’s office responded and was able to capture the transgender woman close by.
After looking over the video footage and the pictures on the phone of the transgender, she was arrested and booked into jail.
The distraught victim was photographed with no clothes on and felt violated. Luckily this person is in jail now, but the police are looking into any other similar cases that Shauna might be involved in.
Just last April, Target made headlines when it chose to allow transgenders in any bathroom or dressing room they identify with.
This isn’t the first arrest like this at Target and it won’t be the last.
Despite many conservative organizations that have urged its supporters to boycott Target and in May, a group of over a million signed a petition to boycott Target of the new rule.
As of right now, Target is staying strong in their support of transgenders and the LGBT community. It must not matter to Target that some of their shoppers are more likely to become victims just like the woman in the dressing room in this story.
