A Macy's department store in Texas is in the news today after the store's manager fired a saleswoman for refusing to allow a man dressed as a woman to enter the women's dressing room.
Natalie Johnson admits she watched the customerr from the start, and she made a beeline toward the shopper when he/she tried to enter the women's dressing room.
Johnson told KSAT 12: "I had to just straight forward tell him, 'You're a man,' and of course that really got him steamed."
Citing her strict religious beliefs, Johnson told her manager she didn't agree with Macy's policy that allows transgender people to use the dressing rooms of their perceived gender.
"There are no transgenders in the world. A guy can dress up as a woman all he wants, that's still not going to make you a woman," Johnson said.
Johnson told KSAT 12 she filed a complaint with the federal employment commission, saying her views on religion prevent her from recognizing transgendered people.
Liberty Council, a conservative Christian organization dedicated to religious freedoms, sided with Johnson, arguing that Macy's policy should be changed.
"Macy’s has essentially opened women’s dressing rooms to every man. The LGBT agenda has become the theater of the absurd."
Macy's, which declined to comment on the specific case, stood by the store's policy, saying "At Macy's, we recognize and appreciate the diversity of our customers and associates."
So any pervert can dress up in women's clothing and walk into the women's dressing room? Where do they draw the line in their eagerness to appease one group by trampling on the rights of others?
