Trans woman turned away from Saskatoon bridal boutique

It's impossible not to love wedding dresses. Sure, they cost thousands of dollars, they're worn only once (knock on wood,) and most of them end up being thrown in the attic/closet to collect dust, but it's really hard to look bad in a wedding dress.

Rohit Singh, a bride-to-be from Saskatoon, decided to prepare for her wedding by trying on wedding dresses at Jenny's Bridal Boutique. There was just one little problem standing in her way: according to CBC News, the eponymous Jenny decided to ban Singh from trying on wedding dresses because Singh happens to be a transgender woman.

"It might happen to some other transgender that might come to the store and she will hurt the same," Singh said. "It so embarrassed me and my husband." "Discrimination," Singh said of the experience. "I'm damn sure it's discrimination." The shop owner thought Singh was a man and felt other people in the store were uncomfortable with Singh trying on dresses. "She said, sorry we don't allow men to wear dresses here," Singh recalled. "I said I'm not a man, I'm transgender." 

In case you're wondering whether the public scrutiny or the revelation that Singh actually is a woman did anything to change Jenny's mind? Nope. Not at all.

"To me it doesn't matter," Correia said. "He looked like a man. There was quite a few brides in the store. If you see a man trying on dresses, you're going to feel uncomfortable."

Oh, you gigantic turd.

So Jenny's entire line of thinking here is that it doesn't matter if you're a woman or not. You cannot have any features that aren't stereotypically feminine if you want to try on her fugly-ass taffeta rags. No, that doesn't make you sound like a judgmental douche at all.
