Transgender Woman Loses It After Being Accidentally Misgendered at GameStop – Video

transgender woman became furious after accidentally being misgendered and being called “sir” instead of “ma’am” at a GameStop in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A video of the incident shows the woman angrily demanding their “fucking money back” from a male employee who accidentally used the word “sir”.

To make matters worse a nearby customer with her young son enraged the woman further by misgendering her again saying: “Excuse me sir, there is a young man in here you need to watch your mouth.”

And that’s when all hell broke loose.

“Excuse me, it is ma’am, it is ma’am! You need to settle down and mind your business, ok?! The trans woman screamed back at the customer.

The sales clerk tried and calm the situation down but was then yelled at again.

She told him: “Motherfucker, take it outside if you want to call me sir again. I will show you a fucking sir.”

The customer then stormed out, kicking over a huge pile of equipment with a loud crash.

But apparently changing her mind, the shopper charged back again to demand the corporate headquarters phone number.

In a video, published on Friday, she told him: “I am going to tell them how I have been misgendered several times in this store.

As she irate woman finally left the store she told the clerk that she would inform the “entire LGBT community”.

#ForShameOscar - Academy Awards’ "In Memoriam" Segment Leaves Out Trans Actress Alexis Arquette

It seems that the Moonlight mix-up wasn’t the only major mistake at last nights Academy Awards.

In last nights “In Memoriam” segment producers of the Awards left out transgender actress Alexis Arquette who passed away of complications from HIV last September. Arquette had over 70 acting credits to her name—including The Wedding Singer, Pulp Fiction, Of Mice and Men, and Last Exit to Brooklyn—Alexis Arquette had, according to her sister, “a great career as a male, and came out as a trans woman and lived her life in her truth.

Patricia Arquette spoke with ABC News:

“I was really pissed off the academy left out my sister Alexis in the memoriam, because Alexis had a great body of work, but Alexis was one of very few trans artists that worked in the business,” she told ABC News.

“At a time when we have trans kids that can’t even go to the bathroom at school, you would think the academy would have a little bit more respect for a group of people that are murdered, and trans women of color are most likely to live in extreme poverty, making $800 a month, so I think the Oscars have a lot of learning to do.”

Here’s to you Alexis.  We remember.
