Not sure what your point is. Do you think non trans people have never donned a dress, pretending to be women, to do something like this before the brouhaha about trans?

And why is there no outcry about non trans men who molest little boys in the men's room?

Um... topic says Walmart, news article says Target. You know those are two entirely different companies, right?

Are you serious??

Ask Jerry Sandusky if there was an outcry when he molested boys??

New Hampshire man, Zachary Bishop, arrested for filming underage girls in Target changing room - The Global Dispatch

Zachary Bishop, 22, of Raymond, New Hampshire, fled the Target store before the police arrived but subsequently turned himself in after police issued a warrant for his arrest. Bishop was recording juvenile females who were changing clothes in the dressing room.

This article says Target... and in New Hampshire... not Idaho as his article says...

I have no idea who he is. Did he molest boys in public restrooms?

If only there had been a sign on the door, this would have been prevented.

THe article mentions there have been 3 different arrests in Target stores for similar types of incidents in the last few months. one in may one in june and one in july all at Target. The first two were not transgender people though. but they were all filming or photographing women or young girls changing.

Was she Trans undercare, or a perv abusing the rules?

Either way this person is a criminal and needs to be put in jail.

Jail for taking pictures??? Not sure I'd support that, but definitely charges if it's against the law.

This was never an issue until republicans started passing stupid bathroom bills. This guy probably got the idea because of this dumb debate republicans generated with their stupid legislation.

There has always been a section of perverts that want to take pictures of the opposite sex in private settings. The hidden bathroom cam, the shower cam, pin cams in shoes for up skirt shots, telephoto lens to peep the neighbor.

So to be fair the peeping Tom problem predates this issue and any modern party.

The issue is do open bathroom policies increase the likelihood of more of these acts? Time will tell.

If it happened at a Wal-Mart, how are we to know what gender anybody is? I mean, it's Wal-Mart. They could be male, female, animal, or vegetable. Take your pick.

Wal-Mart would never let a vegetable in one of their stores, since their core customer base is deathly allergic to them.
