Guard Charged With Assault After Confronting Transgender Woman Using Women's Restroom, Police Say

D.C. police have charged a security guard at a Giant grocery store with simple assault after a transgender woman said the guard forced her out of the women's restroom.

Ebony Belcher, 32, said she went to the Giant in northeast D.C. with a friend to pick up a delivery from the Western Union.

While at the Giant, she asked a store employee to point her to the restroom and passed a female security officer standing in the hallway.

The officer came into the restroom and told her to get out, according to Belcher.

1. The comment board for the source story is absolutly choice.

I studied anthropology in college, and I know that I'm not supposed to think of any culture as "better" or "worse" than any other, but I think some subsets of our culture are pretty disgusting. Being queer in Florida isn't great, but all love for the family in some of the shittier pockets of America.

2. never read the comments!

Damn.... I did. I am surprised when I am still shocked by the outright ignorance, hatred and fear so many people have.
