    There is nothing about a transgendered woman or even a man being in a woman's dressing room that automatically disregards safety or well being of any woman. That is reality. Believing that a man or transgendered woman being in there automatically puts women in some sort of danger is sexist. It assumes that men are a danger to women just by seeing them naked. Most men can control themselves. There is no evidence that transgendered women are more likely to attack in any way cisgender women than other cisgender women are.
    Really, you're just falling into that abyss of wrong-wing excuse, where you defend the indefensible by stating that the opposition must be based on bigotry, or in this case, sexism. That pathetic wrong-wing excuse is wearing very thin, these days.

    It is just plain common sense, and common decency, that men do not belong in women's dressing rooms. Period. Not even men who pretend to be women, and not even men who are so desperate that they have their genitalia subjected to surgical mutilation for the sake of that pretense.

    You have no valid argument to make against what is so obviously true, that you have nothing left but to accuse those who stand for decency of being bigots. It isn't going to work. Nobody is falling for that crap any more.

    No, it is not "common sense" because common sense tells us that people don't normally get completely undressed in locker rooms in front of everyone. But even more it tells us that the body is just a body. It is only sexual if someone makes it sexual, usually the person complaining that someone might see them or the other person "exposing" themself is doing something sexual is the only one making it sexual.

    But they also do allow people to use the fitting rooms of their choice.

    Other stores that allow it:

    Urban Outfitters
    American Apparel
    Forever 21
    Neiman Marcus makes their dressing rooms department specific, not gender specific
    Barney's
    Bloomingdale's
    Saks
    Ah yes, another asinine policy that normal people are rightfully upset about. Great example.

    Rose Marie Preddy told Channel 4 when she went to check on her daughter, Sarah, in the changing area of Target, she found a man in the area who was also using the dressing room.

    Preddy said the worker at the store told her that the changing area had recently become unisex in order to accommodate both genders.
    "That was so unacceptable, completely blindsided by it," said Preddy.
    "They're obviously not looking for our business. They're looking for someone else's business, but it's obviously not going to be teenage girls and the moms," said Preddy.
    I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

    Gabriel Wood accused of peeping at teen in Target dressing room | ksdk.com

    Police say a man convicted of taking pictures of girls in women's dressing rooms is allegedly at it again.

    The victim's mother, who wants to remain anonymous, says her 14-year-old daughter was in the dressing room of the Target in Arnold when she noticed someone taking pictures of her daughter while she was trying on bathing suits.
    The teen is seeing a counselor to help cope.
    What bigots that mom and her teenage daughter are!

    I guess it's bigoted, now, to think that there's anything wrong with a strange man watching, or even photographing, a teenage girl who is undressed, without her knowledge or consent. What backward, bigoted prudes we must be to pass judgement on such a man.

    transvestites?
    transgender and transvestite are not the same thing. Typically (not always) transvestites typical just like dressing as the opposite sex, they like it, it turns them on etc. but they have no issues with thier own born sex or sexual orientation.Transgender is not that

    And the guy wasn't transgender and a woman could just as easily do the same thing. The real solution? Don't make open stalls where those people can be seen while inside actually changing.

    since we can't go back in time and inform her PF doesnt discriminate, once she came to the front desk and was made aware of thier policies what should PF have done?
    *CRICKETS*
    Nobody has answered this still, what should PF have done after the lady complained and then they informed her of her equality policy?
