Controversial bathroom sign sparks backlash in Medicine Hat

A bar in Medicine Hat, Alta., is facing backlash after it told a transgender woman she could not use the female washrooms and later posted a controversial sign that some say is discriminatory.

Earlier this month, 21-year-old River Rising was told by management at the Corona Tavern that she could not use the female washrooms because it might make other women uncomfortable.

"She basically was saying things along the lines of trans women are not women," said Rising.

"And she threw in that if the owner had been in, he would've thrown me out of the bar for using that bathroom."

Management later posted a sign outside the bathroom which read: "You must use the bathroom of your birth gender."

"We have to look after our female patrons in this way," explained manager Lorraine Schmaltz.

She said since the passage of Bill 7, "guys wanna be sneaky, so they say they're transgender, and they're in the women's washroom," and this has caused some female patrons to feel unsafe and threatened.

It's called an "Adam's apple".

On the bright side, this is probably the least red neck thing that's happened in the Corona in 10 years.

It's that weird, mildly radioactive chemical residue that comes in little white pouches in Kraft Dinner boxes.

I haven't posted to a forum using a regular "computer" in a couple of years. Some of these guys as really "old".

I can probably count the posts I've made on a computer in the last two years on the fingers of one hand.

I've already told him that 200 times on top of the 5000 times he's been told the same thing by other posters!

Yes, you do it every time I embarrass you. Maybe you should just post less silly stuff.

If I were you, I'd spend less time on here and put more effort into getting my kid an apartment to live so he doesn't have to live in a trailer

I just love hearing one liners that I first heard 65 years ago. Kind of gives one a feeling of nostalgia!

Not really, since I've only been on the forum about 2500 days, that would equate to telling him about twice a month!
