Macy’s policy requires cross-dressing men be allowed in women’s dressing rooms
Examiner: In San Antonio, Texas, Natalie Johnson, an employee at Macy’s, stopped a man dressed as a woman from entering the women’s fitting area. Ms. Johnson said that he was wearing make-up and girl’s clothing and that he claimed to be a female. The cross-dresser was accompanied by five other individuals, which did not intimidate Natalie. She politely told him that the women’s dressing rooms were for women only.
After arguing with expletives, the group demanded to speak with a manager. They knew that Macy’s is LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) friendly and believed she was out of line. The manager confirmed that Macy’s LGBT policy allows transgender individuals to change in any dressing room they want.
Ms. Johnson reminded her boss that the same policy also protects against religious discrimination. She said LGBT activity, not to mention lies against calling a man a woman, goes against her religious beliefs. She wanted no part of it. The manager did not see that her rights to her beliefs in this case were valid. He said she could comply with policy in the cross-dresser’s favor or lose her job. Not seeing his ultimatum as a true choice, Johnson left employment at Macy’s.
If you have a penis you are a man, no matter what you want to “feel”. Biology and DNA are facts. As a woman, I don’t want any individual with a penis entering a private room that is for REAL women. But the minority 2% of the population keep pushing for their “rights”, even if it means infringing on my rights to privacy (and comfort).
Next time I’m at Macy’s (and there may not even be a next time) I will definitely not be going into any women’s dressing room.

As a woman and a longtime customer of Macy’s, I object to Macy’s policy of allowing cross-dressing men (i.e., transvestites) to use the women’s dressing room. Wearing lipstick and women’s clothes do not make them females. I dread to think I might run into such a person while I’m undressed in your department store’s women’s dressing room.
Why is Macy’s catering to a miniscule minority of the American population? So long as Macy’s continues this perverse policy, I will no longer shop at Macy’s. There are plenty of other places to buy clothes.
Mat Staver, attorney and founder of Liberty Counsel, tells OneNewsNow that an employee of another store has told him she has persistent problems keeping men out of the women’s fitting room. “She says that mothers of young daughters come up to her periodically and ask her to keep the men from going into the women’s fitting rooms. So this apparently is a pervasive problem within the Macy’s store system.”
Staver says the public is reacting: “Consistently the people of America are saying that they will not shop at Macy’s. They’re tearing up their Macy’s credit cards, they’re sending back their Macy’s gift cards, they say that they will not shop at Macy’s — and this is a consistent response that we’re seeing from the public around the country.”
