      Yay! Not for the discrimination, but for the apparent return of emails. Though it’s more important for comments than for articles, which can also be caught by RSS.

      As for the restaurant or bar or whatever, yes, for the time being at least, you do have that right. The question is why you’d even *want* to.

      He just looks to me as if he’s simply put on mascara, powder and lipstick…and suddenly he’s female. Doesn’t work that way.

      The headline makes it sound like this took place at Denny’s. They have a bouncer. It was a club. I would venture to say that her driver license picture looks nothing like her drag persona. If she’s serious about using her ID to get in, she needs one as female. Let’s see how far that goes with Georgia Driver Services.

      Why the hell would they refuse her entry? She’s beautiful and surprisingly there are plenty of straight dudes who are okay with penis.

      Judging from their FB page I would say they are not aware of the comments there. the posts made by the page admin look like an outside agency posts periodic announcements about upcoming activities and that’s it. no interaction with people whatsoever.

      Not surprising ignorance seems to be more prevalent in the South.

      @jimbryant: SHE lives as a woman–a beautiful woman at that. She is extremely kind and very undeserving of what happened to her. She is not just a “drag performer,” Queerty. She is a transexual. A PERSON that was denied entry for who she is. She legally cannot change her ID until she is post-op. Shame on you, jimbryant, for being so negative about a member of our community. Shame on anyone that doesn’t stand with this woman–as SHE is woman enough to stand up for what is right.
