The department store Macy’s fired an employee who refused to let a man dress in a female dressing room. The employee, Natalie Johnson, watched the man enter the dressing room, so she told him that he needed to go the men’s dressing room. The man explained to her that he was transgender—which means that even though he is biologically male, he feels himself to be a woman. She was not budging and told him he could not dress on the female side. Macy’s subsequently fired Natalie Johnson.
Asked whether she would handle the situation the same way if given another chance, Natalie said this:
“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. If you’re a man going into the women’s fitting room, I will kindly escort you to the men’s fitting room.”
