Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 04, 2017

Dallas Morning News editor Dom DiFurio posted an image of the bathroom doors at Dodie's Place Cajun Bar & Grill. The doors were decorated with photos of transgender celebrity Caitlyn Jenner, pre- and post-transition, to indicate the men's and women's rooms, respectively.

Is this a case of insensitivity? Or one of lighthearted acceptance? Note that the after photo is the fully transformed Caitlyn Jenner designating the women's room. A sign the restaurant accepts transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice...... Or are they both photos of women, just one of a women not yet living as such, and therefore there is no men's room.... Or are they both photos of men, one mutilated so there is no men's room?

I think the answer largely depends on how you prefer to be offended.

I am pleasantly surprised to see the liberals of the HUFFPO largely supportive it instead of being triggered to the max. There are many that are, but way more than I expected to be able to look at this without instant outrage.

On the conservative side I have seen also many that are ready to see it as funny, but also many to be triggered the other way....

I personally think it's just the restaurant light hearted and accepting in probably not the best way.

I wonder if Caitlyn is owed royalty fees? This is a place of business so it does seem to me that the use of her image would create a debt to the restaurant.

This is BS and I hope his business goes under because of it.

What if Caitlyn could make money off of it and decided why not? Who does it hurt?

I honestly don't see why. Caitlyn is an activist for transgender rights, acknowledging he pathway to happiness shouldn't feel humiliating to you, more like normalizing your transition. The more people that see those images, the more people who will consider a transgender transition to be an acceptable, even a celebration of, people getting to live in the gender they feel is who they are. It's virtually a total in your face to the states that pass discriminatory bathroom laws.

But how does it hurt? You don't think a picture of her on the women's room is saying if you are a transgender women, this is your bathroom? Seems awfully accepting to men..

Sorry. That should say "to me" not "to men"

Don't get me started on her. Every God damned time she opens her yap we either cringe or we get angry. She REALLY AND TRULY needs to shut the hell up. She's way past tainted at this point. Stupidity has an expiration date too.

It seems more like a cheap chuckle for the beef-eating cowboy folk to me.

#11 do you think they were just too stupid to realize that a picture of a transgender Jenner on a women's room door would indicate acceptance of transgender people using the bathroom of their choice?

It's an outrage.... Outrageously funny.

Bruce Jenner used the men's room. Caitlyn uses the women's. What's so difficult to understand?

#14 Does she still stand up to pee in both of them?
