Transgender Pizza Employee Said She Quit Over Discrimination
KIRO-TV ^ | Tuesday, July 15, 2014 | David Ham

Posted on 07/19/2014 1:04:12 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Dylan Paul, 24, said she was more than hurt when she complained that a customer mis-gendered her while she was working last Monday.

“I was working the salad station near the entrance to the restaurant of Broadway Paggliacci’s. Working there, your function is greeting customers, taking and making salad orders, and bidding customers farewell. It was in the evening on a shift I’d picked up from a coworker when I was saying goodbye to one of our regular customers. He returned the gesture, misgendering me as “man,” which isn’t something too unusual in my life.

I corrected him, “It’s ma’am actaully.” He didn’t hear me clearly the first time, and asked me to repeat myself.

"Ma’am, I’m not a man." He heard me clearly that time, and laughed at me before going about topping his pizza with the condiments we keep by the door. I had a few moments to say something, but I was too in shock to respond. On my way home I resolved to say something to him if I saw him in the restaurant again,” said Paul in her blog. Paul was upset that her co-workers and supervisors did not try to take her side in the situation so she decided to quit and then afterwards, she complained about the situation and said she was later fired for standing up for her beliefs. The owner of Pagliacci’s Matt Galvin said when he heard about the situation he took full responsibility and wanted to make sure that type of behavior was not acceptable at any of the Pagliacci’s.

He offered to re-hire Paul but she has not decided if she would go back.

He also is planning sensitivity training for all Pagliacci employees because of the incident.

Paul said this incident shows that the problem of transgender discrimination is a larger problem in workplaces across Seattle.

Do some people just have way too much time on their hands?

Are liberals always looking for ways to be outraged???

Are these trans whatever people perpetually outraged that the rest of the world is “binary” when it comes to gender???

Are these trans whatever people really looking to create the incidents so that can vent their mock outrage at the rest of society???

It's not "discrimination" if a customer laughs at you.

The customer is not the business, nor is the customer a part of the workforce.

You can't be isolated and protected from society at large if you choose to be a part of an "alternative" lifestyle.

I hear ya. I too get confused. Does it mean that someone has had body parts cut off or is on hormone shots or what exactly does it mean??

liberals would be outraged at me, in that, I don’t want to know what it all means. I don’t want to learn all about the 56 gender identities recognized by Facebook.

and in California, you ARE the gender (in public school) that you “identify” with…..I recall the story of that softball player…..I’m thinking, if the mood hits, he/she might play softball with the girls on Tuesday and baseball with the guys on Friday.

Where does this end? (no where good)

All the “her” and “she” stuff. No, he’s a man, pretending to be a woman. The correct pronouns are “his” and “he.”

I've heard someone (including a woman) address a group of women as "you guys" many times. In that phrasing, it means "all of you", I guess.

This Dylan Paul person seems to really enjoy wallowing in victimhood, perceived or actual. Add to that being a cross-dresser, and it is not a recipe for a happy life.

They are trained to look for outrage. A friend called it “spring-loaded in the pissed-off position.”

I have met a few of these people. And, of those I have met, they appear to be the opposite sex of what they want us to think they are. Trans whatever “women”,look like men in drag. Which is not surprising since they were born male.

Considering that they appear to be the opposite of what they want us to think they are, they have a lot of audacity to be angry at us for not correctly understanding what “gender identity” they are trying to convey to us. They are the ones who are deciding to go against how the rest of society construes gender appearances. Yet the 99% of us who aren’t with it in this area are the bad guys. Go figure.

If a person can self-identify as any of 54 different “genders” these days, I should be free to choose which of those 54 “genders” I feel like associating them with.

It's not "discrimination" if a customer laughs at you.

Which is why it's so upset.

Let's enjoy the situation while we can, as there will undoubtedly be a push to criminalize the rest of us laughing at their (is that the proper pronoun here?) foolishness.

In CA, and probably in other dialects of American English, "you guys" refers to a group of people, much like the Southern "y'all."

1) So he quit. Big deal. GTFO.
2) The customer was polite and simply refused to participate in this loser's self-deception. Tough.
3) There is no such word as "misgendered."
4) If I walked into a pizza shop that had a freak like that working the front of the house, I'd inform everyone within earshot that I was appalled and walk out. Then I'd let the management decide whether they existed to sell pizza or PC.

If I walk into a restaurant and find a he that is really a she (or vice versa) - I spin on my heels and go back to the exit - like the time in Chicago when I entered a sandwich shop - the guy serving customers has wires and antennas stuck into every orifice on his face. Uh uh, no way am I going to let “that” touch food intended to enter my body.

They can harass television personalities like Phil Robertson and restaurants like Chick-Fil-it, but the bottom line is that it is morally conscious customers like you and I that are the ultimate decision makers. We vote with our wallets and the ownership notices.

That freaky stapled guy wasn’t there the next time I walked by that shop, though I never went back in. If the owner could hire something like that to work his front counter, no telling what monstrosity’s he has in back.

Hmm....if the employee has a contract and turns in a resignation, the resignation can be refused and the employee fired.

However that is usually not the case with pizza shops.
