transgender-whinner  Transgender Man Sues Barbershop for Discrimination transgender whinnerA transgender man is suing a Long Beach barbershop because the barber refused to cut his hair after they identified him as a woman. Rose Trevis said the Hawleywoods barbershop in Long Beach refused him service because they said they didn’t serve women. “I felt very upset, discriminated against,” Trevis said. “I was surprised. It was very embarrassing.” The lawsuit said the barbershop claimed it had a policy that did not allow women’s haircuts and had the right to refuse services to anyone. The owner of the shop didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. This is the second such case of alleged discrimination from a barbershop refusing service to women. The owner of the shop didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. This is the second such case of alleged discrimination from a barbershop refusing service to women. In Rancho Cucamonga, another barbershop refused service to another transgender male. In both cases, the customer who was told to leave was a transgender male. At that barbershop, they said it was their religion that kept them from cutting women’s hair. Trevis’ attorney said it’s illegal in California to discriminate based on gender or sexual orientation.
