Richmond Barbers (Canada)

Capture

A transgender teen was left in tears following an experience at a Richmond barber shop. Conrad Dickinson was born a girl but has identified as a boy for a couple of years. Barbara, Conrad’s mother, said transgender people do not like to be referred to as “she” or “he”, instead she said to use “they” when referring to her child. Conrad said  they went into the Richmond Barbers salon, where they have gone in the past to have their hair cut, to get a trim. The barber declined because Conrad is female.

One thought on “Richmond Barbers (Canada)

  1. To me, this is ridiculous. People should be able to get their hair cut wherever they want, and customers should be treated with respect.. My dad took me to a barber shop once when I was about seven years old. He was driving to town, and since he was going to the barber, he just took me along. I hopped up in the chair and got my hair cut.

    “Ken Pappas, manager of the Richmond Barbers salon, said they have refused to cut women’s hair in the past as they are a male barber shop. “Women’s hair is different,” he said.”

    How is women’s hair different than men’s hair?

    “Conrad Dickinson was born a girl but has identified as a boy for a couple of years. Barbara, Conrad’s mother, said transgender people do not like to be referred to as “she” or “he”, instead she said to use “they” when referring to her child. ”

    “They” is over there just doesn’t sound right. What grade is “they” in sounds even crazier. “They” is tall for “they” age. “They” can’t be BOTH singular and plural at the same time. What school did “they” say “they” went to could be both plural and singular? Are we talking about a group or an individual person? Or, what time did “they” get home could be both singular and plural. Insanity reigns, but we have to completely butcher the English language to appease these people.

    “They” is just plain nuts no matter how we look at it. I’m sure “they” is going to get D’s and F’s in English for writing like this.

    When anyone addresses me, I expect them to click their heels together three times, twirl around twice, and say your majesty, or your highness. For some reason, the awful bigots just ignore me and think I’m crazy.

    Calling a female child “they” instead of she is insanity. Shame on the barber for not pandering to the delusional mother. How short does “they” want her, I mean, “his” hair cut?. I can understand why the barber didn’t want any part of this madness.

    I don’t think the barber shop owner should be forced to call a girl “he” or “they”. I’m sick and tired of this “mis-gendering” nonsense. It’s like the politically correct thought police come out in full force if people accidentally call girls “he” or “they”. This has been shoved down our throats. Still, this doesn’t mean that this young lady shouldn’t be able to get her hair cut at a barber shop and be treated with common courtesy.
