Is that an Adam’s Apple, or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

From Findlaw:

A bouncer at a popular restaurant in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village neighborhood ejected a … customer from the women’s bathroom … because she looked too masculine, the woman said Monday.
[The woman] said she was using the women’s bathroom when a male bouncer burst in and banged on the stall door, saying a customer had complained that there was a man in the women’s room.
“I said, ‘I am a woman and I am where I am supposed to be,’” said [the woman] speaking at a news conference. “I offered to show him some identification. I was told that’s neither here nor there.” …
“I’m just hurt that even my wanting to prove that I’m female wasn’t enough.”

The woman, who is demanding the the restaurant’s staff not discriminate based upon gender identity, is pictured below.


… Sorry — it was just too easy.

The only person you have to apologize to is the real woman, because she has enough on her plate as is.

Hi, my opinion of your situation is that if the bouncer does not apologize for his innappropriate behavior, I think that you should take your case to the owner of the restaraunt and file a complaint and ask for your money back that you had used that night.

Sincere Feelings!
