Restaurant Puts Up This Transgender Bathroom Sign - People Are Outraged

As transgendered people continue to fight for their rights to use bathrooms when they go out in public, discrimination becomes more blatant. One Oklahoma City, Oklahoma restaurant owner posted a sign that can be perceived as a threat.

Former President Barack Obama tried to offer protection to transgendered people across the nation by issuing guidelines that would prevent discrimination — at least, in government buildings. Instead of more businesses following suit and embracing fair policies towards transgendered people, a lot of opposition arose. Now that President Donald Trump has rescinded Mr. Obama's ruling, transgendered people are wondering where it leaves them.

Apparently, one establishment thinks it should leave them crossing their legs and doing the pee pee dance. The restaurant owner posted a message saying in no uncertain terms, transgendered people cannot use the bathroom that they feel aligns with their gender orientation.

"We do not have a transgender bathroom," the notice reads in all caps. "So don't be caught in the wrong one. Thank you, Bob."

Bob Warner, the owner of the Steak and Catfish Barn, says he felt the warning was warranted to protect his clientele.

"We have a lot of redneck guys that come in here. Truck drivers and everything. They’re big husky guys and I said ‘man alive!’ If their wife or their little girl walked in that bathroom and a man followed them in there, I wouldn’t have a restaurant," Warner said. "I don’t want to see nobody hurt."

Warner told KFOR that only people dressed appropriately may use the bathroom that he feels matches their genitals.

"I was disturbed," said Paula Schonauer, a transgendered woman. "It was really a let down... That sign has an implied threat and a threat that’s very real to me."

"You’ve got this sign implying a threat of potential violence against somebody for going to pee. That’s not the Oklahoma standard. That’s not what it means to be American. That’s just wrong,” said Troy Stevenson of Freedom Oklahoma.
