Do you think this young lady deserved to get fired???
A local college student is out of work after refusing to allow a transgender individual into a women’s dressing room. Although it cost her her job, the worker says she would do it all over again. Liberty Counsel, a religious advocacy group, is representing 27-year-old Natalie Johnson. She claims she wasn’t aware of Macy’s transgender policy. “Any man who is in the process of becoming a woman, well guess what? You are still a man,” Johnson said.
After learning about the policy, and getting fired, Johnson said she doesn’t agree with it. She said the policy also conflicts with her religious beliefs. “There was a young man who was going into the women’s fitting room so my female customers were at stake too,” Johnson said. The problem is the customer claimed to be a woman, and became offended when Johnson denied her from using the women’s dressing room inside the Macy’s at the River Center.
“They wanted me to believe that the young man I was looking at was a woman,” Johnson said. “He wasn’t. He was just a man with makeup on and women’s clothing.”
LGBT community activist, Lauryn Farris, said situations like this happen all the time. She said there is a bigger issue. “We have to begin to ask ourselves, are we really doing this because we are afraid or are we just practicing hate because that’s what we were taught?” Farris said.
While Johnson is now out of a job, she said she will stand by her beliefs. “I personally don’t believe in transgenders,” Johnson said. “These are just people that are mentally confused.”
Well at least she kept it 100…BUT GLAAD is gonna have a field day with her azz for sure!
