Hobby Lobby Loses Decade-Long Battle to Discriminate Against Trans Employees

After an 11 year battle, the discrimination legal battle of a transgender employee against the well-known religiously oriented employer Hobby Lobby has come to a happy ending for the employee. on Friday, Aug 13, 2021, Illinois’ 2nd District Appellate Court ruled that Megan Summerville, 51, suffered unlawful discrimination by her employer Hobby Lobby when the employer denied her access to the women’s bathroom. In doing so the court affirmed the Illinois Human Rights Commission’s earlier decision to award Summerville $220,000 in damages and returned the case back to the Commission to determine if additional damages are owed due to the company’s continued discrimination. Summerville’s case dates back to July 2010 when she informed her employer of her intent to begin using the woman’s restroom at her store – a year after starting her transition. According to court documents, Hobby Lobby changed her personnel records to reflect her new name and gender but refused to allow her to use the woman’s bathroom. Summerville’s management ordered other employees to report her if she used the woman’s bathroom. Hobby Lobby issued a warning upon one instance.

TikToker confronts transphobic Dollar Tree Cashier OutBuro LGBTQ professional entrepreneur online networking community lesbian bisexual transgender nonbinary

TikToker confronts transphobic cashier at Dollar General

A TikToker encountered a particularly disturbing comparison in a Dollar General involving trans people and vaccinations and let several store employees and random customers have it in an epic rant shared on the platform. The video comes from the @mortuaryschool101 account, in which the TikToker mostly documents their mortuary students but found a little bonus homophobia to share. According to the TikToker, the store employee had said, “If a girl can identify as a boy, I can identify as vaccinated.” In all caps and with a clap emoji, one commenter wrote, “EVERY ALLY SHOULD TAKE NOTE. Thank you for holding people accountable.”
