Virginia Target stores have had a lot of trouble with molesters in the past. (Part of their “all inclusive” policies?) Last year a man dressed as a woman was caught peeping into women’s stalls three times. nationwide, there have been many complaints since Target announced that men are allowed to use the women’s bathrooms.
