Gee, why would any woman have a problem with this *cough* lovely lady *cough* in their dressing room…
The internet is predictably loosing it’s shit over allegations that M2T Kylie Jack was denied his god given rights to enter women’s only space in a Texas lingerie store a few days ago.
The owner of Petticoat Fair took to facebook in order to apologize for any hurt feels (of course this wasn’t enough and created a shit storm of it’s own)
Oh wow, a nuanced response based in female reality from an owner on why they asked Kylie to step into another area to live out his girlhood fantasies.
The dressing room area is a particularly private and vulnerable place for many women and girls, so it’s a protected area. For that reason, we also have a completely separate dressing area for women who have undergone mastectomies and need post-surgical care. (Our fitter invited Kylie and companion into this part of our store so they could have this delicate conversation privately.) Just as a gym won’t allow men in a women’s dressing room (and vice versa) for the comfort and safety of its patrons, we don’t allow men or boys above a certain age in our dressing area. Despite our otherwise inclusive approach, those who might be or who outwardly appear to be men (regardless of how they are dressed) pose a delicate challenge, and in the case of imposters, can pose a safety risk to the Petticoat Fair staff.
If it’s unclear whether a customer is a man or a woman, we err on the side of caution as a protocol, but never on the side of discrimination or intolerance.
God, how dare the staff err on the side of caution when a mans feelings are at stake!!!! And ZOMG how dare you imply this isn’t a bootiful laaaydeee!
Predictably, trans staff writer over at Jizzabell picked up on the story and had this to say…
Oh. No. Dressing rooms are vulnerable places, sure. For women and girls, sure. Trans women and trans girls are, well, gee, women and girls. This is getting worse and not seeming very apology-like. The idea that men or boys above a certain age are not allowed into these dressing rooms is absolutely irrelevant. Kylie Jack and her girlfriend are both women. So the policy against men and boys shouldn’t need to be trotted out. Likewise, the fact that Andrews even felt the need to bring it up is implicitly suggesting that trans women aren’t women. This appears to be confirmed with the last sentence, where Andrews mentions that those who do not match up to whatever the staff’s idea of “woman” looks like is a “delicate situation” and could be an “imposter.” This is the same idea trotted out every time we try to discuss bathroom usage, and it’s false.
NO, it’s not FALSE. I’m so bloody sick of men saying that women’s concerns about their safety are false. Especially when women are attacked time and time again. But let’s just ignore that. Male feelings are involved and that’s the most important thing!!!
Here is Kylie’s response, which includes a list of demands, to Petticoat Fair…
How ominous he includes the Transgender Law Center thing at the end. No doubt this guy has been dying to sue someone. These guys feel so entitled and see it as an easy way to get money for plastic surgery.
Basically men should be allowed wherever they want, whenever they want regardless if the staff feels that they may be there under false pretenses, just, in the off chance, that they might hurt someone’s feelings. This is how fucking delusional the trans community it. They demand 100% capitulation or lawsuit!
I think this post from Kylie earlier in the month is very telling about his mentality…
Of course society is going to see you as anything BUT a woman…because you’re not a woman.
