Macy's LGBT-Friendly Changing Room Policy Needs A Change
If you shop at Macy’s or not you may want to take note of what has happened to a former employee of Macy’s, Natalie Johnson. This issue affects more than just one Corporation and it's an underlining theme throughout corporate America today. It may be coming to a store near you or your place of work. So please take note.
Macy’s has adapted a LGBT-friendly policy that allows transgender customers to use either the men’s or women’s changing rooms that the individual deems most appropriate. Natalie Johnson while employed at Macy’s confronted a man dressed in woman’s clothing, who was clearly identifiable as a man, which was about to go into the women’s changing room and told him that he could not use that room. Instead he would have to use the men’s changing room. The customer took offense to this and informed Natalie Johnson that Macy’s was LGBT-friendly and he could use this room. He also filed a complaint with Johnson’s supervisor. To Johnson's surprise her supervisor took the side of the transgender customer and informed Johnson that Macy's department stores are LGBT-friendly and that those transgender customers have the right to use whatever changing room they deem appropriate. Her supervisor further went on telling her that if she could not consciously agree with this policy and had a problem with this that she would have to leave. At this point Johnson informed her supervisor that she felt that this policy violated her religious beliefs and that she felt she was being unfairly discriminated against. Instead of working out a possible solution to this issue or a transfer of departments Johnson was fired by Macy's department store that day. Johnson is now being represented by Liberty Counsel who is filing a claim of discrimination and wrongful termination against Macy's.
This is not the first time or the last time that we will hear about this type reverse discrimination toward those who hold to traditional family values and Judeo Christian beliefs. These types of hyper rampant LGBT agenda policies are being forced upon people almost daily and in every type of work situation. The LGBT movement tries to hide under the guise that they just want to be treated equality, just as everyone else. While in reality what they really want is their rights and agenda held higher than the rights of everyone else rights. What their agenda really enforces is reverse discrimination, in which if you speak out for your beliefs and rights feeling that they are being violated you are then labeled as a bigot or homophobe. If the LGBT movement was truly for equal rights than they would not want your rights to be offended either. The truth of the matter is that Judeo-Christian beliefs and the LGBT movement cannot coexist. The two groups are on how the opposite spectrum of morality and there can be no compromise if both groups are to stay true to their own beliefs systems. What it basically comes down to, in the simplest terms, is the LGBT movement wants their agenda to be pushed forward above all other groups agendas dominating and controlling all other groups under them.
The basic tenants of Macy's LGBT friendly policy is actually dangerous and anti-family at its core. The reason I say that this policy is dangerous for Macy's is because it opens the door to allow potential sexual offenses to happen within the changing rooms of Macy's. For example, let's suppose that there is a pedophile that likes to view children changing clothes. Under Macy's policy all the pedophile would have to do is claim that he or she deems whatever opposite sex is fitting room they feel is appropriate. They would than be able to carry out their perversion in whatever acts they feel like within those fitting rooms and announced to the unknowing person coming into try on clothing. As far as being anti-family Macy’s policy discriminates towards the family by allowing the safety of the family to be endangered. I don’t know about you but I would not feel safe allowing my children or wife to shop in a store that they could be potentially be harmed by doing the simple act of changing clothing because of some poorly thought policy.
So what can one do about Macy’s policy?
We have several options. The first option is do nothing. Second we can boycott, however this mostly proves ineffective and severely limits the outcome of change. A more effective third option is to of all your voice to be heard. This can be done very simply by calling the corporate office of Macy's at 1-513-579-7000 and voicing your opinion against this policy and asking for it to be changed. Remember when doing this to be polite and to the point. If enough people voice there concern the store will listen or at least they will know that people are aware of this dangerous and anti-family policy.
It is my opinion, that Macy's needs to rethink how they handle their LGBT policies. Macy's has several options here to rectify this problem. If Macy's is truly wanting to be fair to both LGBT and non-LGBT groups then they need to rewrite their policies in such a way that they are not intrusive to those that are not transgender and hold the normative's of society. A very simple fix to this issue would be for Macy's to designate changing rooms that are for transgender only people. It seems to me at least in my opinion that Macy's is not looking to be accommodating to both parties but instead push ahead a LGBT friendly policy.
