“Transgender women who are still grappling with their gender identity or early into their transition, like Jenner in that pre-transition photo, are billed as too masculine to use the women’s room,” wrote The Daily Dot. “It’s a fundamental misunderstanding of gender dysphoria, one that can lead to transgender women being discriminated against if they don’t pass.”
"This is disgusting," one person added on Facebook. "I know if I saw this in my area, it would be the quickest way to lose my business," wrote another. "Very poor taste."
Others found the photos hilarious.
"Some people have no sense of humor," noted one user. "I absolutely love this!!!!!!" added another. Wrote a third, "That's great! I'm glad there are places still out there that still love to have fun and not worried about what others think!"
Dallas News reports that Dodie's owner Kyle McPherson, who uses a different name on Facebook, posted that the photos "FINALLY" got the media's attention.
