ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico, January 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The irate “transgender” man who went viral for chewing out a GameStop employee who called him “sir” has gone public, telling local media he has no regrets about his behavior at the video game retailer.
Earlier this month, LifeSiteNews reported on the video, which shows a man angrily attempting to return a purchase then swearing at the man behind the counter and another customer who called him “sir.” Despite his masculine face, voice, and physique, the customer demanded to be regarded as “ma’am” because “quite clearly I am not” male.
The individual has since been identified as “Tiffany” Moore, a local rapper, who spoke to KOB 4 about the incident in an interview released Monday.
“I was so angry at that point because, literally, five or six times he had called me Sir. He got me so fuming angry and I was cussing,” Moore said, lamenting that the incident brought “so many bigots out of the woodwork” as evidenced by mocking posts and images shared on social media.
“We're humans just like you,” Moore stressed, despite the fact that virtually no critic of “gender fluidity” questions the humanity or personhood of the gender-confused. “We're people just like you. We have kids. We have parents. We have brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, we're just trying to live.”
As for raising his voice, swearing multiple times (allegedly in the presence of at least one child), and kicking over a display, Moore declared that he doesn’t regret his behavior.
“Yeah, I could have reacted a whole lot better. But you know what, I look back at it and if I could, I wouldn't change a single thing,” he said. “I would do it 100,000 times again. I would kick over that display 100,000 times again. Because my actions were justified. I mean, it was blatant and malicious hate. It was blatant and malicious misgendering.”
Moore added that the incident has inspired him to write a song and plan a music video about “transgender awareness.”
GameStop initially refused to publicly comment on the incident, but following KOB’s broadcast, they released a statement professing respect for the “transgender community,” standing by their employee’s handling of the situation, and promising greater sensitivity in the future.
“GameStop prides itself on having a very diverse workforce” and serves “everyone who enters our stores regardless of gender or gender expression,” the company said. While this particular incident was “unfortunate,” they concluded, “our associate acted professionally after mis-speaking by apologizing and remaining calm to de-escalate the situation.”
“Like other corporations committed to inclusiveness, we are continually learning,” GameStop concluded. “This incident reminds us to continue pursuing efforts to ensure GameStop remains a diverse, inclusive culture that celebrates every person’s unique value.”
While LGBT activists insist that being a man or woman is strictly a matter of self-perception, in reality sex is rooted in an individual’s chromosomes and reflected by hundreds of genetic characteristics. The American Psychiatric Association still classifies gender dysphoria as a mental disorder, as did the World Health Organization until last summer. Gender confusion has been linked to a variety of long-term ills, including higher suicide rates.
