Chicago Man Exposes Self to Girl in Target Women’s Bathroom

A recent story out of Chicago was the focus of an email from the American Family Association in its campaign to convince Target to reverse its policy of allowing men in its women’s bathrooms.

Last Saturday, WBBM Channel 5 reported that a man exposed himself to a girl in a Target women’s bathroom.

Tuesday the conservative group used the incident to advance its boycott of Target.

The company claims the boycott has had no impact on its business, but links contained in the email suggest otherwise.

The AFA email follows:

While Target remains steadfast in allowing men to enter women’s dressing and restrooms, the number of child victims of sexual crimes occurring in its stores continues to rise.

Last week, in a Chicago area Target store, a man forced himself into a bathroom stall being occupied by a young child and sexually exposed his private parts to her. The man ran away before police could arrive.

According to news reports, the incident happened in the middle of the afternoon on Sunday, March 25.

No Target employee questioned the man or attempted to stop him from entering the women’s restroom because Target’s official policy allows men free and unrestricted access. This policy has resulted in over a dozen crimes being committed by sexual predators taking advantage of it.

“It’s very sad. Children are innocent,” Stanley Hughley, a shopper at the Target store, said. “However old the pedophile was, it’s wrong. It’s pure evil no matter how you look at it.”

As we have stated many times, our worries stem from both the real and potential threat that predators and voyeurs, or anyone with evil intentions, would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children – and we have plenty of incidents to show that they have.

AFA has outlined just 10 examples that show why Target should immediately rescind its dangerous policy and keep men out of women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms. As long as Target continues to allow men free and unrestricted access into women’s dressing rooms and restrooms, these sexual violations against women and little girls will continue to occur.


There are still people you know who are unfamiliar with Target’s dangerous policy. Will you help spread the warning and let your family and friends know about the Target boycott?

  1. Target is NOT a safe environment for a family to shop. Democrats can sure be proud as they have allowed their party to be all in for this.

  2. Very “sunshiny” to blame Democrats for this incident. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  3. How crazy is the policy of some entities to allow men to enter the washrooms of women. The leaders of these entities are morons and imbeciles. They need to resign from their positions.

    Also, we got the mostly left wing media supporting men entering women’s washrooms. How credible are they? NOT.

    Any entity that endorses men to enter women’s restrooms, dressing areas should be widely exposed for their stupidity on national tv. But, wait. National tv is mostly in the camp of far left wing radical proponents that OK men being allowed in women’s bathrooms, dressing areas. How nuts has are Nation evolved over the last few decades of twisted Democrat and so called demented progressive values(?) that are promoted by the mostly left wing media?.

    The problem in our Nation is the despicable ideas being propagated by the lunatic fringe of the Democrat Party and mostly those who describe themselves as “progressives”.

  4. The only sensible reaction to the previous rambling nonsense has to be…Go Progressives! Stay tuned…tic, toc, tic, toc, meeeoooowwwww…

  5. Anyone with a brain has already discerned that so-called progressives are clearly anti-American and probably also morons. What a fake name they gave to themselves. They are clearly regressive, and really anti progress in our system as well as socialist and communist in their silly ideology.

  6. Our sunshine compassionate conservative political science, and sociology professor quickly degenerates into a pathetic name-calling machine. Can you hear the blue wave coming our way? They heard it loud and clear last night in Wisconsin. It’s huge; and it’s overwhelming. Lean forward. Repeat with me: Speaker Pelosi, Speaker Pelosi, Speaker Pelosi. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeooooowwwwww…

  7. Target does NOT allow men in restrooms. This is why the police were called and an alert has been issued. Target does allow transgender people to use the restrooms, and as of today no transgender person has ever been arrested or accused of any wrong doing using the restroom in the United States. Why because they go and pee and leave. There has been a few politicians that have been arrested in restrooms but no out cry to ban politicians from restrooms. No where in the actual report is there any mention of a transgender person being involved. I AGREE THIS MAN SHOULD BE ARRESTED. Please watch this news report link. Also not mentioned is the description of the suspect.(most news reports mentioning this so it might help catch this person)I can not believe Cal did not mention this stuff in article.

    Police described the suspect as a black man with a dark complexion in his 30s.
    He is roughly 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall and weighs 170 to 190 pounds. The man wore a red jacket, dark hat, gray pants and sunglasses, authorities said.

    Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 312-747-8380.

  8. Mark, You’re saying that Bred and Farmer are passing along fake news without doing any research? Unbelievable!

  9. This story is missing so many facts. No store that I know of allows men in the womans or woman in the mens restroom, unless there is a family restroom. Every real news report said it was a drunk black man entered the restroom and exposed himself. No ware does Cal’s story above say any thing about that. You can make up news like above but facts are facts. I hope they catch that guy that did this.

  10. Mark, you should not be surprised that cal left out key information in one of his raw meat stories. cal is a classic example of some guy who pretends to be part of media, but is nothing close to a professional. He has never been a professional in his work.

    But his weak tactics of giving half truths and weak language such as perhaps, maybe etc, leads his more simple minded readers into their rabbit holes of ignorance.

  11. Would Mark it Tom feel comfortable allowing a young daughter or granddaughter use the bathroom alone at Target?
    And, if a person who looks like a male enters the bathroom after the young girl would they worried?

  12. Liberalism is a mental disorder, truth is their poison.
    What more proof does one need in order to arrive at that conclusion ?
    Liberals like Snowflake Tom, who posts above, live in their own alternative reality
    and are triggered by those of us who are capable of exercising critical thought.
    What a terrible way to live your precious one and only life.

  13. That crime had nothing at all to do with Target’s transgender bathroom use policy. The guy was a drunk man dressed as a man who pushed his way past a mom to enter a stall occupied by a girl. The story might support your argument to prohibit alcohol, or to ban men from discount stores.

    If you think it’s all deep state Hillary liberal media fake news, here’s the Breitbart story.

  14. Target isn’t worth arguing over. They are toast. Crappy store with horrendous crappy policies. This is the kind of scumbucket person that enters a Target. Now let’s hear from all the progressives nitwits that will BEG for more surveillance and more laws to infringe on us all.

  15. Tom, I will call you Tommy I think maybe you have some issues of your own, with professional qualities and come here to talk about the potty room. I stopped shopping at Target years ago, they are not Customer oriented, unless you like their Potty Orientation, you can shop there.

  16. Didn’t the CEO of that company within the last couple of years say that it would be company policy to invite men to use women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in his company’s stores?

  17. The solution to this problem is simple. DON’T allow your child to go to the restroom alone!

  18. Target’s policy did not contribute to this. At any big box store, it would be very easy for any male to stroll into the female restroom. This is a pedophile doing what pedophiles do, it’s atrocious. Don’t mangle this story into an anti-transgender piece to express your personal agenda, and make the kettle boil over.

  19. Eric C, you know there are times when you have to let the child go alone.
    It’s not about transgender, it’s about a possible loophole that can be used by predators.
    Personally, I don’t think it’s a huge problem but protecting children is something we all care about.

  20. Keep voting DEMOCRAT, Chicago.
    The Pervs are counting on you.

  21. What is more dangerous for your kids, Target washrooms or this sunshine blog? I yield the floor…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meeeeooooowwwwwww…

  22. bred winer Please post a link with your info. I have never seen any store say men can use the womens or women can use the mens restroom. Rumors and 1/2 or less story’s gets everyone worked up. Google this, compare the real news to this story, notice this story is Cals opinion. Missing is the real facts. I hope the police catch this guy.

  23. Angel. There is no place on this board for you. Claiming this wasn’t a problem? It’s disgusting, what the Democratic party has allowed. I’m certain that our federal bill is now in the place of the House to discourage this from occuring. Time to write a Senator or Congressman/woman
