Macy’s Fires Employee for Protecting Women’s Dressing Rooms from Cross-dresser
Liberty Councel ^ | 12-05-11 | Staff

Posted on 12/05/2011 10:19:25 PM PST by Lazlo in PA

San Antonio, TX – A young woman was fired from a Macy’s department store for refusing to violate her religious beliefs by permitting a young man dressed as a woman from entering the women’s dressing room. Natalie Johnson claims she saw the young man walk out of the women’s fitting room and politely told him that he could not go back in because it was for women only. The cross-dressing young man claimed that he is a “female.” Johnson said that he was wearing make-up and girl’s clothing, but clearly he was a male. The cross-dresser was accompanied by five other individuals. The group argued with expletives that Macy’s is LGBT-friendly, to which Johnson replied that Macy’s is also non-discriminatory toward religion, and that it would go against her religious beliefs to lie that he was a woman or compromise with homosexuality. The group then demanded to speak with a manager.

When Johnson was confronted by her employer, she explained that she could not allow a male to change in a female’s fitting room. Johnson’s boss referred her to Macy’s LGBT policy which allows “transgender” people to change in any dressing room they want. However, Johnson pointed out that the same policy also protects against religious discrimination and, in this case, it protects her right to her beliefs that were being violated. The manager demanded that she comply with the LGBT policies or lose her job. Johnson refused to go against her sincerely held religious beliefs and was terminated from her job.

As Bob Grant used to say, "it is sick out there and getting sicker". Now these sickos are getting people of moral fiber fired.

My question to Macy's is why is it better to pander to these handful of degenerates by letting them use the woman's dressing room where I am sure the female customers are none to pleased to have men roaming around?

The solution is to post fliers outside Macy’s warning women that Macy’s allows sexual perverts freely to use its women’s restrooms.

The day is coming one will be called a "Bigot!" and be charged with a "Hate Crime" for pulling over and forceably separating a man from sheep on the side of the road on the Interstate to shield such monstrosities from the eyes of our young. We laugh now. But the day is coming. How much more sick can you get? Sickness inherently knows know boundaries, it does not say to itself, "you know, this is getting to be TOO sick; better stop here." Nope. Keeps plowing on through, pushing envelope after envelope....sorry to quote Hugo Chavez, but "hmmmm, smells like sulphur in here, don't you think?"

Imagine America 50 years from now, if there is an America.

Trannys spend piles of money on women’s clothing and shoes. In the stores where sales staff work on commission, they fight to get the tranny clientele.

Great idea, a little protest outside of the store might make them think twice about such a stupid policy...Why do so many people without any common sense get into positions such as this...she/he should be fired not the salesgirl..

No, the solution is for conservative women to boycott Macy's for any Christmas shopping. Use the Web to spread the message to women peer-to-peer, let Macy's know why, and shop elsewhere.

Let them pay, let them pay, let them pay.

If I were a female of a more traditional bent, this sure wouldn’t make me feel very confident about being able to try on clothing at Macy’s without prying eyes. Men would have objected less to their room being used for this weirdo. I wonder if stupid legalities, not stupid sensibilities, are what drove this asinine action.

I can see the difficulties for a religious person of working anywhere nowadays in the secular world. They will probably have to limit themselves to places owned and run by co-religionists.

I’m in the same boat: I work at an Orthodox Jewish institution, although interestingly our non-Jewish employees are also traditional/conservative. Hate to say, but I can only work at these kinds of places.

Why not a third “Trans” room then, and leave the decent people alone.

What better way to kill your clothing business than to have it broadcast all over that you allow perverts to use your dressing rooms.

Let's make sure that everyone knows about Macy's enlightened policy.

Most likely because Macy's hopes that they'll behave themselves better if they're around decent people. If you give them a room all to themselves, the cleaning crew will need hazmat suits to go in there after hours.

Speak for yourself. I wouldn’t want those 6 freaks in the dressing room either.

Great policy Macy's. So, how "tranny" do I have to be to use the women's dressing room? If I simply pick up one of your scarfs and declare I'm a tranny and want access to the woman's dressing room - are you going to stop me? Hey, if you're not going to "discriminate" against trannys, then you had better not discriminate against "tranny-lite"... Which of course will now be any and every perv within 100 miles of any of your stores. Good luck with that.

Well Macy's - looks like no-one in my family will be shopping there again. Also, note for you advertisers, we won't be watching the parade next year either.

I will email Macys and tell them I don’t plan to use their dressing rooms any longer if they are going to let any man who states that he is female in.

Well of the few that I see floating around, they usually dress like they hit the Walmart "Grandma" section. I guess I need to move to a hipper place for the stylin' trannys.

I am straight. I dress straight. However, if I go to Macys and change in the women's changing room that is okay if I tell them that I am transgendered? What a hell of deal is this! I love Macys.

However if I tell them I am just a straight weirdo, do I get arrested?

ps
Advice to Macys, pull your head out of your butt before you more patrons of your store. Hey dude, that is San Antonio in Texas.

That does it! I’ll be sewing my own clothes from now on.

Lately I’m becoming extremely sensitive about a lot of things. Just the thought of trying on clothes after they have been tried on by a trans,is repulsive. I don’t care if the dude thinks it’s a female, it has no business in a women’s dressing room unless it removes its “pen” before entering.

Romans 1:28-32 King James Version (KJV)  28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

 29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

 30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

 31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

 32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Wilderness of mirrors and chaos.

Now we do not know what predator is going to use this as loophole.

This pro gay fiasco is a humane rights movement gone retarded.

Is Macy so retarded and guelded? Why arent there people sueing Macy for allowing gay abuses?

Macy’s is inviting perverted freaks to use whatever dressing room they please?
Aww-righty... I will not be visiting a Macy’s anytime soon, and I’ll be warning my family and friends.
That’s for sure.

Macy is into the whore sale of French make up and perfumes, so putting Obama brand lipstick on pig is their money.

It’s like turning medicine and dignifed use of plastic surgery to anything goes.

Not so much as a specific reply to you, but to all expressing a similar position. I am currently a seasonal employee at a Macy’s (was an IT project manager, thank you Obama).
Macy’s has probably been forced into this position by discrimination laws; local, federal, state - who knows. In my training it was stressed that men cannot work in the women’s departments (because of dressing room access and assistance) and in children’s only with special training and screening. There was no type of discussion about dealing with(or promoting)LGBT customers.
I have found Macy’s to be very respectful, albeit commercially, of Christmas and service to the customers. Saying and meaning Merry Christmas is fine. Here, Macy’s is probably between a rock and a hard place, and common sense is being trumped by a well-lawyered lobby.
I would have thought that the manager would have relieved the employee and monitored the dressing room herself until the issue has passed. Perhaps there are other issues in play here too.

Macy’s LGBT policy which allows “transgender” people to change in any dressing room they want.

Macy's...can a HETROSEXUAL WHITE MALE change in the women's dressing room??

If not... could I sue for DISCRIMINATION??

If I recall correctly, some stores in the last few years or so have been found to be using cameras to monitor the women's dressing rooms as well.

I no longer shop at the mall, but instead I shop online. Who needs this insanity?

I’m sure there are more women that spend money of clothes than these freaks. I’m also sure the majority of them do not want men in the dressing room with them. I suggest the sales staff actually start helping actual women.

OK, wait . . . so all I have to do if I want to see women in various states of undress for free, is put on a schoolgirl uniform, go to Macy's, claim I'm a "female," and demand to use their changing facilities?

Shoot, they've got my business. </s>
