Here we go again. One restaurant in Texas has been having a problem with a certain cross-dresser using the lady’s room for a number of years, and this was long before anyone could get away with “identifying” as a different gender.
I can’t wonder how this guy thought this would play out – in Texas nonetheless!
BBQ on the Brazos seems like an unlikely place for such a national controversy to begin. Located in Cresson, Texas, a town of fewer than 1,000 people, it shares the building it’s in with a Texaco gas station, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
However, the restaurant was forced to put up a sign that said “No men in the women’s bathroom please” after a cross-dressing man kept on sneaking in there to use it.
For the past two-and-a-half years, one man has been coming into the restaurant about 20 miles southwest of Fort Worth and trying to go where he doesn’t belong.
“Before this gender thing got started, there’s a truck driver who comes in here who occasionally has on jeans and boots or occasionally has on a skirt and 6-inch stilettos,” John Sanford, owner of BBQ on the Brazos, told the paper.
“He’s a pickup man for rodeos,” Sanford said, alluding to the fact that he’s a worker at rodeos who helps riders up after they’ve fallen. “The furthest thing from my mind was to see him in hot pants, a blouse and 6-inch heels.”
Yet, that’s exactly what he wears. Female employees and visitors asked Sanford to do something about it, hence the sign.
“Everybody got together and said, we can’t have this guy going into the ladies’ restroom,” Sanford said. “I don’t care if he has on a dress or not.”
Unlike Target’s response to the bathroom nonsense, I don’t foresee a boycott arising as a result.
