LGBT Community Freaks After Restaurant Warns: “No Transgender Bathrooms, Don’t Get Caught In The Wrong One”
Tyler Durden, Mar 16 2017
Before today, the Steak & Catfish Barn was just a popular fried food paradise enjoyed by Oklahoma City locals and whose only real claim to fame was being featured on an episode of “Man vs. Food” with Adam Richman. But that all changed when the restaurant’s owner, Bob Warner, posted a sign clarifying his bathroom policy:
Despite having never actually visited the restaurant in question, Paula Schonauer, a transgender Oklahoma City resident, was outraged by Bob’s “implied threat.” Per NBC, Schonauer said:
I was disturbed! It was really a let-down! That sign has an implied threat, and a threat that’s very real to me!
Troy Stevenson, with Freedom Oklahoma, said:
You’ve got this sign implying a threat of potential violence against somebody for going to pee. That’s not the Oklahoma standard! That’s not what it means to be Pindosi! That’s just wrong!
Of course, the real story here is that the sign had been posted at the restaurant for 10 full months without an issue before NBC was tipped off, which hardly sounds like the national crisis that our politicians have made it out to be. Meanwhile, when confronted by NBC on the issue, Bob simply implied that like about 99% of the rest of the population, he couldn’t care less about the bathroom politics consuming liberal DC politicians’ time these days and was just trying to prevent anyone from getting roughed up by the “redneck guys” that frequent his fine establishment. He told News Channel 4:
We have a lot of redneck guys that come in here, truck drivers and everything. They’re big husky guys, and I said: Man alive! If their wife or their little girl walked in that bathroom and a man followed them in there, I wouldn’t have a restaurant! I don’t want to see nobody hurt!
Apparently those “redneck guys” don’t subscribe to the notion that people get to casually choose their gender. That kind of backwards mentality is so six months ago.
