Although I find this really disturbing, as far as I know dressing/fitting rooms are not gender separated in Target (or most other) stores. So any man, not just a man with delusions of being a woman (part time, apparently) could be in the room next to me or my family.
I have yet to go into a dressing room in a department store in any part of the country I have shopped in and found it to be non gender specific. What am I missing? The Targets around here have dressing rooms in both the men’s and women’s department and only the correct sex uses it. They also have gender-specific bathrooms, unlike the news reports saying Target has unisex bathrooms. Maybe I live in a “backward” area.
The only way I can imagine this is if a man went into a woman’s store or department specifically to buy a piece of woman’s clothing and try it on and the sales person made sure
no one of the opposite sex was in the dressing room, or vice versa.
I’ve been in dressing rooms where there is a male employee that attends to the shoppers using them. Didn’t like it so much, but just to say, its out there. I also have been overseas- specifically in my case where I was at swimming pool- and the dressing rooms were unisex. The stalls weren’t even to the floor or to the ceiling. Didn’t like that too much either, but its probably the conditioning of the society that I live in. The Europeans didn’t seem to mind so much.
The Target around here has male and female AND family bathrooms, so I have not been exposed yet to unisex restrooms except in gas stations (which are accessed by a key) and small restaurants with only one restroom period, which do not have urinals. I live in a pretty conservative area of the country, though. Oh well.:shrug:
