Woman Goes Into Ross Changing Room, Hears Voice - Shocked By Who's In There With Her

Ross has lost at least one customer because of a store policy that allows men claiming to be transgendered into the women’s dressing room. According to the customer, there was nothing transgendered about the man she saw.

Lisa Stickles went into the Mesquite, Texas Ross store dressing room, then turned around and came right out. She headed straight for the manager.

“I was in the dressing room, when we heard a man’s voice,” Stickles told the store manager.

The manager went inside and came out, telling Stickles that the customer 'was representing himself as a woman today.'

“What about me? Or my feelings?” said Sickles. “[The manager] told me that if I felt uncomfortable in the dressing room with him there… I’d have to wait until he’s finished.”

While Stickles waited, she got in touch with Ross corporate on the phone. After a while, the person in question walked out of the women’s' dressing room. According to Stickles, there was nothing feminine about him.

“He was in no way dressed as a woman,” Sickles said. “He had on jeans, a t-shirt, 5 o’clock shadow, very deep voice. He was a man.”

According to a Ross spokesperson, the chain store's policy is to allow customers to use the changing rooms of the gender with which they identify.

Stickler says that's the end of her being a regular customer at Ross. She might have to travel to find a new store, however, as Target, TJ Maxx and Marshalls have all adopted similar policies.

Only Kohl's says their policy requires customers to go into changing rooms that are in line with their biological gender.
