On Friday, Facebook user Kathleen Crawford posted a picture she claimed was a Target women's bathroom with recently added urinals (her post said the Target was "north of LA," though she probably didn't mean Los Angeles, since her Facebook profile indicates she lives somewhere in Washington State). Crawford likely posted it because Target recently announced that it would allow transgender customers and employees to use bathrooms and changing rooms that match their gender identities. The picture gained a lot of attention, and was shared on Facebook over 15,000 times:

A Target spokesperson told BuzzFeed that it is not a picture of their bathroom, and that they are not putting urinals in women's rooms. It's probably a random picture of a newly constructed men's room that happens to have a red wall (it's unclear if any or all Target bathrooms even have red walls).

But that didn't stop thousands of people from sharing it, and leaving these comments on her post:

Everyone will have to wait patiently to see if she ever clears up where this mystery Target actually is, or if it's even a picture of an actual Target bathroom.
