Butch Lesbian Sues For Restroom Ejection

Khadijah Farmer, the butch lesbian who was thrown out of Caliente Cab Company, a West Village restaurant, when she was mistaken for a man in the ladies restroom, is now suing the restaurant. Although Farmer is not transgender, the suit was filed on her behalf by the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, who contend Farmer is the victim of gender discrimination.

On a related note, the above-linked Times article mentions a gender-neutral restrooms advocacy group called People In Search Of Safe and Accessible Restrooms. Yup, PISSAR.
