Transgender woman banned from Idaho store over use of restroom

A transgender woman whose use of a women's restroom in an Idaho grocery store reportedly upset other customers has been cited for trespassing and banned from the store for a year, police said on Friday.

A Rosauers supermarket in Lewiston asked police to charge 25-year-old Ally Robledo, who was born male but identifies as female, with the misdemeanor trespass charge on Monday, Lewiston Police Captain Roger Lanier said.

"The store security officer said he had been dealing with a problem over a couple days with the person going into the women's restroom and urinating while standing up," Lanier said.

He added that the store had reported that Robledo's use of the restroom made other female customers "very uncomfortable."

Robledo said she was being discriminated against.

"I'm a female trapped in a man's body. It's natural for me to go to the ladies' room. Getting the no trespassing order for a public restroom was really painful," she said.

He’s going to leave the seat up one time too many and those Idaho girls will give him a swirly.

Normal folks are compelled to put up with this nonsense because our culture has become increasingly liberal. Being liberal means that we celebrate homosexuality, trans-whatever, bisexual, anything to do with abnormal sexual identity is celebrated. Also, any obstacles to these sexually confused people means that society itself must change to accomodate the sexually confused, rather than the sexually confused having to conform to social norms.

Indeed, to liberals, the very idea of any social norms is out of bounds. Liberals would like anyone to freely express themselves, physically and otherwise, whenever and wherever they choose. Exceptions are made for those carrying guns or carrying Bibles. Those people can be persecuted by liberals.

These ‘transgendered’ types who haven’t undergone the whole surgery/medication route to change their appearance (which is at least a commitment) are nothing but attention seekers.

Anyone with a penis entering a ladies room while my daughter is in there(*) won’t have one when they get out.

...and if they go in by mistake, like happens occasionally when in an unfamiliar location, you’re gonna go all psycho on them, too...?

Is there any difference between transgenders and crossdressers? If so what? How would anyone tell the difference?

How about bisexuals, or trisexuals?

Too many fruit flavors to keep track of.

Beats me.

All I know for sure is that if my dog expects to smell ‘woman’, he gets -really- upset if he smells ‘man’ instead.

[based on an actual incident involving a he-she who wanted to pet him]

Ally Robledo, who was born male but identifies as female...

Here y' go, Ally. Why not use this handy-dandy trans-morgifier kits. Just turn it on, apply light pressure, and wingo!

There’s no such thing as a “transgender woman”. There are men, and there are women. The person in this article is a man.

The irony is that some of the corporate sites had men’s only bathrooms on administrative floors and only put in women’s bathrooms on those floors within the past ten years. Getting a “gender neutral” restroom is unlikely unless all restrooms are made gender neutral.

Friendly word of advice: if you’re going to try to pass yourself off as female, then you sit down when you pee
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Would have been OK if he/she/IT would have went in and shut the door and weeweed away.

The fact that he/she/IT was going while standing at the sink gave him/her/IT away.

Kind of like Seinfelds Dentist who converted to Judaism so he could tell Jewish AND Catholic jokes.
Someone asked Jerry “Are you offended because you are Jewish”?
‘No, I am offended because I am a comedian and he can’t tell a joke’.

Read the article...it is in Lewiston, not Salmon.
For reasons I’ll never understand, Idaho articles are occassionally datelined from Salmon.
No Rosaures in Salmon...got to drive to Missoula.

Neither can you.

Priest: And this offends you as a Jewish person.

Jerry: No. It offends me as a comedian.

What sorta animal urinates in a sink irreguardless of gender???????

And what sorta dummy uses the women’s restroom while standing up????????????

Either someone who was really stuipid or someone who was lawsuit fishing...or both.

Gee if the “transgender community” wants to make a good impression maybe they should police their own better.

Then again as a subset of libtards they fail at the mathmatical expression “freedom = responsibility”.....

Psycho? No, I'd go all Irish on them. (Some friends say it's a fine line.)

"''scuse me, but you want this door over here."

The difference is then either:

oh, my mistake, thanks. (No prob.) or

but I'm a girl. (You're gonna be.)

Do you mind if I wander around yours?

Have you seen Terry Bradshaw's TV weight loss ad where he says he's tired of being "old, fat and ugly"? There is a lot of that in mine; sure you wanna visit?

;^)

How about a big question mark? Or MEN, WOMEN and UNDECIDED?

They have unisex bathrooms at some hospitals in Vermont. I got a dirty look when I asked them why they don’t put a placard on the door that says ‘WHATEVER’...
