This Redditor wasn’t sure how a stranger figured out his dad was transgender. No matter how he did it, he was sure he’d learned his lesson after his dad retaliated against his little stunt!
Going Back Home
OP (Original Poster) and his dad were in the South visiting family. His dad is a female-to-male transgender, and he’d been one for 45 years.
He said, “He’s the most passing person you’ve ever met.”
While at a restaurant, OP’s dad headed to the bathroom. Then, suddenly, a man determined he was transgender and started throwing a fit.
OP, until now, doesn’t know why or how he was so sure of that fact. As he mentioned, his dad was the “most passing person” he ever knew, so he said, “Unless the guy straight up looked over the stall door, there’s no way to tell.”
Just Kick Him Out
The anti-LGBTQ man who started throwing a fit shouted at the bartender and ordered him to kick OP’s dad out.
However, OP’s dad isn’t one to be bullied.
His Ingenious Retaliation
So, instead of simply arguing in front of every Southerner in the restaurant, OP’s dad “went the complete other direction.”
He wrote, “He channeled his inner Southern righteous fury and went off on that man for ‘accusing him of being transgender.’”
You Should Be the One Who Gets Kicked Out
OP’s dad demanded that the random guy who caused trouble be escorted out of the property.
He also called the man “an agent of Satan!”
Surprisingly, It Worked
Well, it seemed OP’s dad is a master at these kinds of charades, as his stunt worked!
OP said his dad got the other guy and his family kicked out. He even got a free beer “for his troubles!”
What Redditors Think of the Issue
People couldn’t understand why a supposedly straight man would check his dad out in the bathroom.
This person said, “Why would a ‘straight’ man be looking at another man’s private parts? Even worse if your dad was in a stall. I am CIS and straight, but I really don’t give a d*** who uses the bathroom as long as you leave me alone, flush, and wash your f****** hands!”
Some Redditors also mentioned that even if OP’s dad was not in a stall, it was still weird for the man in the bar to suddenly accuse him of being transgender.
“Stand still and stare straight at the wall while using the urinal. No looking around, especially not at other crotches. I’d also like to add another dude law: no talking while taking a p***. Unless it’s an emergency that can’t wait a minute for us to finish peeing and stow our genitals for travel,” commented one man.
Most Redditors found OP’s dad’s petty revenge awesome!
This user wrote, “Killing myself laughing at ‘agent of Satan.’ Well done!” Another said, “I didn’t realize what sub I was on and was confused about whether the South of England was particularly known for transphobia. Good on your dad!”
Redditors can’t get over how good OP’s dad’s retaliation was.
“Your dad played the ultimate UNO reverse card! What a bada**,” said one Redditor. Another commented, “Agent of Satan. F****** killed me.”
If I Need to Pee, I’ll Pee
Some people said that they didn’t care who was in the restroom or if they were in the wrong one. If they need to pee, then they’ll do it.
This man said, “CIS dude here. I couldn’t give a s*** who is in the bathroom or what their gender is—like, at all. I’ve spent plenty of time in clubs and such where that rule goes right out the window anyway, and the bathrooms become essentially unis** and if you want privacy, you just use a stall. S***, I was at Walmart the other day and walked into the men’s restroom, which was empty except for some lady cleaning sinks and such. I kind of paused and gave her a second to leave, and when she didn’t, I walked right up to the urinal. I was bluffing because I honestly don’t know if that could somehow be considered s**ual assault despite the fact that she was in the men’s and didn’t put up a ‘bathroom’s being cleaned sign’ or anything. She did leave fairly quickly after that, but I really have no qualms about some chick being in there while I p***. The same rules apply to dudes: just don’t try to, like, watch me do it or check out my junk or talk to me because it is just rude.”
Progress Is Progress
While some do not condone using transphobia against transphobia, they were still quite happy OP’s dad’s revenge worked!
This Redditor wrote, “Using transphobia to fight transphobia is definitely an unorthodox strategy, but progress is progress. Who am I to judge?” Another replied, “Putting out the fire with gasoline.”
A couple of Southerners joined in and exclaimed how much they loved his retaliation.
This mom said, “As a Southern mom of a trans son, love this! Hell yeah, Dad, wish I could buy you a beer too!” Another commented, “I love it! Your dad is hilarious! This Southerner approves!”
What do you think of what OP’s dad did? Did you find his revenge hilarious, too?
