This Woman Was Fired From KFC Just For Being Trans—And It’s Perfectly Legal

"We can’t hire you because we don’t know which bathroom you can use."

A trans woman from Virginia was offered a job by KFC, but was quickly fired once her manager realized she was trans.

The woman, Georgia Carer, went in for an interview with the fast food restaurant and says she was hired immediately on the spot.

‘He was like, “You have got the job. I am going to start you out at $7.50 an hour. It’s yours. We are going to start you training on the computer tomorrow.”‘ Carter told ABC13.

However, within minutes, the manager reneged, claiming a discrepancy between the gender listed on her ID and her physical gender presentation.

‘My supervisor and I have a problem because on your license it says “male”,’ Carter says he told her. He allegedly continued, “we can’t hire you because we don’t know which bathroom you can use.”

The manager asserts that he never offered Carer the job in the first place, but that if she were to change her gender to female on her driver’s license, he might reconsider.

This incident joins a long line of anti-trans practices occurring around the United States, which use bathroom policies and restrictions as a means to discriminate.
