Ridiculous complaint of the Week

Khadijah Farmer is humiliated. After all, she only went into the ladies public restroom to do what most ladies do in public restrooms – and was confronted and told to leave the restroom and the restaurant.

How rude, you say?

There’s one problem. She’s a lesbian. She looks, acts, dresses, and moves like a man. And when she went into the women’s restroom, it was quickly reported that there was a man in the ladies’ room.

She's complaining. Says it's inconceivable to her that this could happen.


DUH. If you don’t want to be mistaken for a man, then do something about it. Try looking like a woman. Otherwise, your cry of “humiliation” is disingenuous.

What is a woman supposed to look like? What is a man supposed to look like?

This "Woman" looks like a Man, I believe the Restaurant did the right thing under the circumstances.

Anonymous left a post that, though it had no profanity, it was not language I want on my website. I am reposting the comment without the crudeness:

Anonymous said: I agree with Brian. The problem with this world is that it is thought that a woman is supposed to be very girly and a man very manly. What year is this? What centry for that matter? Like the lawyer said it turned out after all the only "MAN" in the bathroom was the bouncer. How ironic, I hope she sues their @#$% for all she can. Why couldn't she just !^@%# and be left alone?

To Brian and Anonymous.

This is a Christian Worldview based blog. The Bible is my guide and my handbook in every aspect of my life. The Bible teaches that men are to dress and look like men normally do, and women are to dress and look like woman normally do. It also says that homosexuality is a sin.

You are welcome to read and post on my blog, but I can tell you up front that my intentions for this blog are not to invite strife or to host fighting matches. My intentions are to comment on the world around me through a Christian worldview. Please remember that as you visit.

This actually is a Bible-worldview-based blog, and a particular stripe of it, at that. And that's fine. But to call it a "Christianity"-world view-based blog is overstating things. On one hand, you've got Daddio, whose faith I am not qualified to judge, and you've got Brian, whose faith I am not qualified to judge.

The Bible "teaches" nothing. It "says" a lot. Problem is: It's not an "it." It's a "them." Which is why "it" contradicts "itself," and why it takes discernment, not just a "God said it, I believe it, that settles it" approach.

Brian: Bless you. You too, Daddio. And you, too, Ms. Green.

Hey, a generation or two ago, that "Ms." would have brought fundamentalist condemnation, Ms. Green. And a generation or two from now, fundamentalists will have stopped raining condemnation on homosexuals.

Ms. Green, Thank you for some background information on yourself and your blog.

I would like to know still, how a woman is "supposed" to dress (aside from "as a woman") ... can you please give me some specifics. The same for men would be appreciated.

ER,

The Bible is the Christian's handbook - and though you don't believe it is the infallible Word of God, Christians worldwide do believe that, myself among them. Therefore, the two cannot be separated - Christianity and the Bible. As far as your statement:

"The Bible "teaches" nothing. It "says" a lot. Problem is: It's not an "it." It's a "them." Which is why "it" contradicts "itself," and why it takes discernment, not just a "God said it, I believe it, that settles it" approach.

I of course disagree with this statement in its entirety.

However, as I've stated before, I won't allow long drawn out arguments on this blog. If you want to discuss any issue in detail with me, you'll have to email me and we'll do it privately.

On a side note, I have been praying faithfully for you, that God would comfort you over the loss of your mom and give you a new, better employment opportunity in your new location. So how is that going?

Brian,

The basic anatomical differences between men and women are readily distinguishable, unless purposely hidden. In any culture, men generally dress one way and women generally dress another, and up to certain distances, they are easily recognized as either male or female.

If a man dresses up in women's clothing, wears a woman's hairstyle, makeup and accessories,etc., or if a woman dresses in men's clothing, wears a short man's haircut and no makeup, and carries a wallet in her back pocket etc. they both have to assume that they are going to be mistaken for the opposite sex. In fact, most butch women I've known purposely do everything they can to minimize their femininity. This gal who was "humiliated" is disingenuous - even her girlfriend said it wasn't the first time she'd been mistaken for a man. The whole thing is ridiculous. I have no idea what her purpose was in making such an issue of it, but she knows full well that she chooses to look, dress, and act like a man, so what's the big surprise that she was mistaken for one?

Thanks for yer prayers. The move is as long and drawn-out as I knew it would be. Not looking for a job yet; still working on getting the house ready to sell.

"On one hand, you've got Daddio, whose faith I am not qualified to judge,..."

But you go right ahead and judge it anyway.

It's all documened in the ethereal.

No, it's not, Dad. I judge all kinds of things about you. But not your professions of faith and relationship with God. You cannot find where I have. ... Oh, I think I did say to you once, "Get thee behind me." Hey, hyperbole to match your own.

I posted a comment here a few days ago. Did it get lost in cyberspace or is it just awaiting confirmation? Should I repost?
