Arizona’s Anti-Trans Bathroom Bill Gets Served By A McDonald’s In Washington

micky-ds-bathroomThough they may not be Burger King, when it comes to equality, McDonald’s wants you to have it your way.

At least that’s the case at a McDonald’s in Seattle, Washington where a letter reaffirming that particular franchise’s stance on bathroom policy was recently posted.

The letter reads:

We respect the rights of all customers and employees. We believe all people must have access to safe and dignified bathroom facilities regardless of their gender identity or expression. Therefore, the following policy has been adopted for this restaurant at 1530 3rd Avenue.

Employees and customers may use any restroom that corresponds with and is based upon the gender identity they publicly and exclusively assert or express.

We are committed to the principals (sic) of non-discrimination as provided by Washington Law.

Thank you

The policy dates back to September 2006, but seeing as it was posted again recently, perhaps that Micky D’s was launching a Big Mac attack on lawmakers in Arizona. Just last month they shamefully passed a bill that protects businesses from civil or criminal liability for discriminating against transgender people seeking to use their facilities.
