Macy's employee fired after refusing to allow transgender shopper to use the women's fitting room
Daily Mail ^ | 12/8/2011 | Daily Mail Reporter

During the holiday season, Macy’s is regarded as a shopping Mecca, but in Texas, the retail giant is at the centre of a controversy.

Fine - then let just the “transgendered” shop there. See how long Macy’s stays in business then. Everyone else should boycott!

It’s just a little room for changing clothes! Why not just take the womens or mans part of the sign off and just call it a dressing room, then there wouldn’t be any problem.

Not really, it’s common sense.

Men are men and women are women. I can wear a skirt but I’m still a man and have no business in a women’s restroom or dressing room.

This opens the door to rapes, voyeurs, etc...

Perhaps we need to put chromosome symbols on doors instead of “Men” or “Women” since those identifiers no longer have any real meaning?

Oh I completely agree. I don’t want someone of the opposite sex in my dressing area. It’s just that we have all become so bloody sensitive about everyone’s little feelings, even the wacko’s feelings, that we are all tossed in the bin.

I hope Ms. Johnson gets a much better paying job.

She saved any actual female, using the fitting rooms, from having to deal with a man in the area while disrobing. Good for her...and for the record, as someone who works and manages retail, Ms. Johnson was correct in watching the “odd” customer. A tranny ( using theatrical heavy makeup to cover a beard shadow) is going to destroy merchandise randomly “trying” things on. Or rip seams trying to fit into a woman’s garment.

This is definitely a sticky wicket.

It is state enforced tyranny by the minority.

Under the federal government the rights of the majority, the producers, the builders and those who are ethical and moral are secondary to the rights of bums, moochers, parasites, freaks, perverts, the takers and the professional victims.

There can be no peaceful return to a normal, moral, ethical society without a complete change in direction of all three branches of the federal government.

So now a pedo perv can just put on a dress and have instant access to the girls dressing room.

Brilliant, Macy’s!

Good for her.

I happen to be employed there too, and it will be a cold day in Hell before I let some man-perv into the ladies dressing room.....and I don't give a rat's patootie WHAT Macy's does to me because of it.

Here’s an idea. Instead of labeling toilets “Men” or “Women”, label them “Y Chromosome” or “No Y Chromosome”. That should do the trick.

Why go to all the ‘bother’ of dressing like that?

Just go into the ladies room, ladies dressing room etc and tell them you are ‘confused’ as to what you really are and just have to see for yourself.

After all it is your ‘right’ to be confused isn’t it?

And tell the cop, you mean you are arresting me now but if I go home and put on a dress and come back, I am legal?

She's obviously intelligent and has values, so I doubt if she'll be out on the streets. I'd be willing to bet she has a better job within a very short period of time.

The department store has a policy in place that allows transgendered individuals to use the fitting room of the gender they have chosen.

How is a normal person supposed to tell the difference between those who think they are "transgendered individuals" and run of the mill transvestites, transsexuals or common perverts?

Does the store provide training? Should Transgenders be issued a license so they aren't mistaken for common perverts?

Maybe the "transgendered individuals" should be required to wear a sign something like this:

NOTICE:
I AM NOT AN EVERYDAY PERVERT
I AM A TRANSGENDERED INDIVIDUAL

Indeed. Unlike the go-to solution for restrooms (the single-occupant "unisex" facility), I've never seen a "unisex" fitting room.

But I suspect it's just a matter of time.

"Transgender" my a$$...these are sex deviates, and do you want your wife or daughter in the changing room with THEM?

Macy's will lose alot more customers if they allow these yahoo's to freely frequent the women's changing rooms, and they may need to be reminded of THAT!

Our company is bending over backwards for a freak who is taking his drag queen show to work with him. Yes, he performs in a drag show in one of the many local Austin homo bars, and now the company has spend thousands on retrofiting the women's bathrooms, name changes, system changes, etc. The guy is about 300 lbs, a complete slob, and terrible at everything he does, including being a drag queen.

Last week, a few women freaked out when he seen and heard was showering in the women's shower at our company's health facility. The report was that the shower curtain was open, he was facing outwards and groaning about how sour he was from working out.

I support the Macy's worker. We should only use the biological definition of what a male or female is period.

Every woman knows those dressing rooms are not all that private. The changing stalls do not have full sized doors with locks. The curtains never close completely and the “doors” will have 24 inches open at the bottom, broken slats in the louvers, etc. Most have no latches at all, and can be opened by someone merely bumping them as they pass by.
I refuse to shop where the dressing rooms are not reseved for the protection and privacy of a single gender.

Oh, for crying out loud. Everybody knows transvestites like to put on a show. That’s why they’re transvestites. Have them take off and put on their clothes in the aisles. There’s the holiday spirit.

My daughter and I were in a dressing room in Kohls in Austin, TX three years ago. There was a man (not transgender) in one of the stalls. I complained but nothing was done. Kohls lost this customer that day and I haven’t been back since.

Of course, with spy cams in dressing rooms there’s no telling who’s looking. Check the return policy and take clothing home to try on.

There are many that have unisex dressing rooms. Just a curtain or swinging door but you don't see a problem? With that reasoning the gal already had her clothes off so it's not like it was a rape-rape.

So basically, because of “political correctness”, Macy’s dressing rooms are unsafe for everyone due to the demands/rights of the sexually deviant.

I've never seen a "unisex" fitting room. But I suspect it's just a matter of time.

The first I saw was three years ago at mall in Round Rock, TX (suburb of Austin). Same trip as my previous post about the perv in the Kohls dressing room. Sick thing is that Austin Kohls isn't at that mall which told me this is widespread. I haven't been back to that mall either.

“Our company is bending over backwards for a freak who is taking his drag queen show to work with him.”

The implications of accomodating these deviants are mind-boggling; this woman could just as easily have been fired for letting the wierdo into that area.

The “pushing the limits” stunts are designed to cost “normal” people their livelihoods while winning large cash settlements for the freaks. Muslims can’t pour into this counrty quickly enough; when one of their women is accosted by one of these mental patients, the situation will be resolved (probably with fitting rooms for men, women, and “enter-at-your-own-risk” - which will be like an indoor rest stop).

I think you are both correct. I have seen some unisex dressing rooms that do work, and others where I wouldn’t want to use them. It just depends on the establishment.

My 13 yo daughter even freaks out if I am in the dressing room with her, I could only imagine how she would react if she knew “men” were allowed in as well.

That’s correct. Political Correctness trumps every other consideration here.

We have to be tolerant and to prove how tolerant we are, we have to tolerate men in a woman’s dressing room.

I wonder if Macy’s will get sued. This could have been a set up for a lawsuit. Dude has his mock outrage at what happened, and goes crying to Lambda Legal and the ACLU.

Unfortunately, I think there is a significant segment of the population which would not understand the reference.

I understand where you are coming from, however, “undies” are not something I purchase for her under such circumstances that ANYONE, let alone what you describe, would have had the opportunity to try on.
