Natalie Johnson, Your Religious Beliefs Don't Trump My Human Rights

You know I'm following the case happening two hours west of me on I-10 in San Antonio in which a transphobic now former Macy's employee denied access to a fitting room in their Rivercenter store to a transwoman.   As of yet the transwoman in question hasn't been interviewed to get her side of the story.

Here's what Natalie Johnson had to say for herself when she was interviewed on KENS-TV.


And now it's the TransGriot's turn to blast back.

Natalie, the only 'mentally confused' person here is you.   Don't know if you're familiar with the Texas and United States Constitutions and it's obvious from looking at your interview you aren't, but bottom line is your religious beliefs don't trump mine or anyone's human rights.

What pissed me off even more about this faith-based transphobia you aimed at one of my transsisters is that you share my ethnic heritage. 

You may not believe trans people exists, but an ever increasing body of scientific and medical evidence plus  decades of our documented lived experiences provide undeniable evidence that I and other transpeople around the world are walking this planet. 

The default setting for human life when a zygote starts developing into a fetus is female.  A little more testosterone in the womb and you would have come out of the birth canal 27 years ago.being named Nathaniel  If that testosterone burst was mistimed during the hormone wash you would know firsthand what it's like to be a transperson and face the discrimination and ignorance that you gleefully dished out in Macy's that day.

But back to excoriating your ludicrous assertion that your alleged Christian beliefs trump a transperson's civil and human rights and corporate policies that you treat everyone with respect and dignity.   

No, they don't and neither does your faith-based bigotry and transphobia.. 

"I made sure to keep a close eye out on him because he was shopping for women's clothing."

So?  And who died and deputized you sir as a stormtrooper for the Femininity Police?  Being misgendered doesn't feel good does it, Nathaniel?

Since you claim to be a Christian, how about you perusing Matthew 19:12  and Matthew 7:1?

Matthew 19:12  For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.' 

And what does Matthew 7:1 say?    Judge not, lest ye be not judged..
