THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — While the lawsuit says the employee was contemplating SRS (sex reassignment surgery) when she wore the device, I am unable to confirm if she identifies as a male. However, the civil rights complaint is apparently in her birth gender name – Pauline Davis, so I shall be using female pronouns.
Davis’ employer, a J&J Snack Foods plant in Moosic, Penn. fired her after an employee Davis confided in told management she was wearing the device. Her attorney, Lalena J. Turchi, it was well concealed and did not interfere with her ability to do her job. They claimed the company favorably treated another trans employee, a woman undergoing hormone therapy.
The federal civil-rights complaint filed this week in U.S. District Court supposedly states: “[the fired employee] was subjected to disparate and discriminatory treatment for being a female, and for being a female who identified with the male gender.”
Davis two years ago filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, claiming gender and gender-identity discrimination. No word on what the outcome was. Neither Davis or J&J Snack Foods are responding to media inquiries.
I’ve also been unable to find out if she is getting guidance from trans organizations. It would appear she could have a stronger case if she was identifying herself as a trans man in the lawsuit and in the media. However, there may be other reasons for using the female name.
