Sue me!!

A woman won $35,000 after a restaurant in New York's West Village asked her to leave the ladies toilets as they thought she was a man.

Khadijah Farmer visited the Caliente Cab Company last June. When she went into the toilet, a male bouncer ejected her and others in her party.

Read all about it in the New York Times !

Wow! I hope someone misidentifies me.

Gosh! And how odd - women's loos are usually sufficiently private that it really doesn't matter if there is a men in one... unless the queues are really long... then that would be outgrageous!

Once, long ago and when very much slimmer I had trouble buying stockings in a market as the seller thought I was a boy and wanted to know what I was going to do with them! I don't know why I couldn't have been buying them for a girlfriend, sister or mother.... perhaps she thought I was about to rob a bank...

And I was completely covered up as the weather was so cold and not in the most feminine of gear...

Mary, I put my life on the line that no one would ever mistake you for a guy!!!

I can't ever imagine you with tights over your head, Caro!

Haha, Mary's comment has me cracking up. Mary, what would you do if...?

I would ask for free meals for one year for me and my friends hee hee. Or that the bouncer has to wear a dress and high heels for one year. And lipstick. And a bra.

She should additionally sue the male bouncer for being in the ladies toilet.
