An editor in Dallas shared a disturbing photo Monday of the transphobic bathroom signs currently in use at a local restaurant.

Dallas Morning News editor Dom DiFurio posted an image of the bathroom doors at Dodie’s Place Cajun Bar & Grill. The doors were decorated with photos of transgender celebrity Caitlyn Jenner, pre- and post-transition, to indicate the men’s and women’s rooms, respectively.
The women’s room featured a Vanity Fair cover of Jenner and the men’s room had an image of Jenner when she won the Olympic gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Games.
According to the restaurant’s Facebook account, the photos of Jenner have been in use since at least August.
It's been reported that using Jenner’s photographs in this way trivializes the internal struggle and gender dysphoria many transgender individuals face. Being transgender does not mean that someone was simply once one gender and is now another.

The restaurant wants the naming calling to stop. Ok, it will stop when they take down the photos-dumbass.
