Loehmann’s Trannie Settlement

Two days ago we relayed that New York’s Fox 5 News had reported that retail chain Loehmann’s settled the discrimination suit filed a transgender woman named Jane Galla (pictured). We didn’t have the link, so we put that freaky picture of a model with a hand coming out of her hair. Well, now we have a link, so here it is.

The discount chain will now allow trannies to use the dressing room of their choice. Of the resolution, Galla said:

I’m very happy that Loehmann’s has taken appropriate steps to ensure that transgender shoppers are treated with the same respect and dignity as everyone else.

Like all New Yorkers, I appreciate a good bargain, but the price is too high if I have to endure discrimination when I go shopping.

Unless, of course, there’s a really, really good sale.

      I’m glad to hear there was a positive outcome in this situation. Too bad Ms. Galla had to take time out of her life to deal with this, but she’s made it easier for those who come after her–and changed the store’s corporate policy to boot! Go girl.

      But WHY does Queerty insist on using the terms “tranny” and “trannies” in it’s coverage of transgender issues?! That is NOT okay. It’s not cool when Fox “News” does it, and we sure as heck shouldn’t have to read hateful terms in the LGBT press!! Queerty, educate thy self.
