“As for me and my household, we will not be shopping at Macy’s” – Lenny Leatherman
Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow, 12/14/2011 – Another Macy’s store is reportedly permitting men to use women’s dressing rooms — and in the process, says Mat Staver, the retailer is alienating a lot of its customer base.
The problem first surfaced when a Macy’s employee in San Antonio, Texas, was fired after telling a cross-dresser he could not use the women’s dressing room to try on apparel. The employee had pointed out to management the consequences of a policy that affirms the lesbian, “gay,” bisexual, transgender (LGBT) lifestyle.
Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, now tells OneNewsNow that an employee of another store has told him she has persistent problems keeping men out of the women’s fitting room.
“She says that mothers of young daughters come up to her periodically and ask her to keep the men from going into the women’s fitting rooms,” the attorney reports. “So this apparently is a pervasive problem within the Macy’s store system.”
Macy’s has an LGBT-friendly policy that allows men to use women’s rooms, as Staver has told OneNewsNow before — and he suggests that poses a danger for any woman or girl using them.
“This policy has put at risk every woman shopper who enters one of these rooms,” he states in a press release. “While attempting to cater to a radical LGBT agenda, Macy’s has alienated almost the entirety of its customer base.
According to Liberty Counsel, the public is reacting.
“Consistently the people of America are saying that they will not shop at Macy’s,” explains Staver. “They’re tearing up their Macy’s credit cards, they’re sending back their Macy’s gift cards, they say that they will not shop at Macy’s — and this is a consistent response that we’re seeing from the public around the country.”
The Liberty Counsel founder says customers are “literally outraged and shocked” at Macy’s policy.
When the employee was fired for objecting to the policy in San Antonio, OneNewsNow contacted Macy’s. The retailer declined to comment except to say that the firm appreciates the diversity of its customers and associates.
