Obscene incident at spa opens eyes but fight over 'trans rights' nothing new

Women who were enjoying an upscale Los Angeles spa became the thankless victims of a transgender female, whose graphic behavior went unpunished, but the incident is drawing national attention after one of the women delivered a blistering, profane complaint after the biological male exposed himself.

With her cell phone recording, an unidentified black female customer berated the front-desk staff at Wi Spa after a male customer exposed his male anatomy in the pricey health club located on famous Wilshire Boulevard. 

“So it’s okay for a man to go into the women’s section?” the woman angrily asks. “Show his penis around the other women, young little girls—underage—in your spa?”

Responding to the woman, a spa employee murmurs about “sexual orientation” which only angers the customer more.

CA adds more states to its left-wing naughty list

California is lashing out at other states that refuse to align with its far-left policies but a conservative activist says it is Californians who will suffer.

California’s left-wing politicians have announced five more states have been added to a growing list that forbids state-funded business trips.

Arkansas, Florida, Montana North Dakota, and West Virginia were added this week, bringing the total to 17 states and thus not leaving many more states as reliable left-wing allies.

John Stemberger of the Florida Family Policy Council tells One News Now the newly-banned states ran afoul of California over the issue of female-only sports.

“You've got [Gov.] Gavin Newsom coming up for a recall vote and he thinks this is going to endear himself to the people of California by cutting off states like Florida and Texas,” Stemberger observes. “Why? Because we identify clearly that a boy is a boy and a girl's a girl. We're not going to let them compete against each other in sports.”

"There has been a coordinated attack on fundamental civil rights," California's attorney general, Rob Bonta, said in a statement. "It's about aligning our dollars with our values." 

The worst victim, Stemberger adds, is the people of California who disagree with their own political leaders and who are witnessing the state pay an economic price for the left-wing activism. 

“What orientation?” the customer shouts back. “I see a [profanity]. It lets me know he’s a man. He is a man. He is not a female.”

On its website, Korean-style Wi Spa advertises separate spas for men and for women, located on separate floors, and the business advises customers the spa area is “not for the modest” because guests enter the spas nude wrapped only in a towel that is provided.

“There are girls down there, other women, who are highly offended for what they just saw,” the black female customer continued. “And you did nothing. Absolutely nothing. In fact, you sided with him.”

"Even if you are not in the state of California, this is a tragically important story," Jonathan Keller, who leads California Family Council, tells One News Now. "President Biden and other people have said that they want to 'Make America California.' They look to California for leadership and ideas for how they want to implement policies.”

CA rainbow flagAfter the confrontation went viral on social media, the liberal Los Angeles Magazine jumped to defend the transgender woman in a story that describes the issue as “rights of trans people to use women’s spaces versus the rights of cisgender females to not be exposed to male anatomy.”

“Cisgender” is a made-up description for biological females which, at Wi Spa, included a group of shell-shocked female customers who had gathered behind the female who was delivering the tongue lashing. 

The magazine also published a statement from Wi Spa in which the business said California Civil Code 51 (b) makes it illegal to discriminate against, in the magazines’s words, “trans and other gender non-conforming people” in California businesses.

If that is true, Wi Spa could have faced a civil fine if it had blocked the transgender female from entering the female-only floor and spa. 

'Trans rights' not new issue

The angry female customer’s surprise and alarm is itself surprising since the controversy over transgenders is anything but new. To date the public has witnessed it in high school and college sports, in the U.S. armed forces, in corporate business, and in the courts.

This week, Nevada’s Miss USA-sanctioned beauty pageant witnessed 21 females lose to a biological man who is now headed to the Miss USA contest.

"Chelsea" Manning bannerMississippi-based American Family Association grasped the public-safety issue more than five years ago, when the LGBT-friendly Target Corporation saw an opportunity to brag that its store policy allows transgenders to use the restrooms and changing rooms of their choice. 

AFA, the parent organization of One News Now, warned Target in 2016 that straight males would use the liberal policy to target women and, in fact, AFA documented incident after incident in which shocked females called police after sexual predators had followed them into a Target restroom. 

An AFA petition vowing to boycott Target stores climbed to one million signatures within days even though the controversy was still in its infancy.

Target restroomRegarding the far-left political climate in California, Keller points out Democrats passed a law in 2020 that mandates male state prisoners who identify as female must be admitted to female-only state prisons.

As of January 2021, 1,129 male California inmates stated they are transgender, non-binary and intersex, and 261 inmates had requested transfer to women’s prisons in the state so far, The Washington Examiner reported earlier this year. 

According to the Los Angeles Magazine story, a protest is planned for Saturday, July 3, outside the Wi Spa business at 11 a.m.

The story also said transgender-defending counter-protesters are showing up, too, but they are showing up earlier, at 10 a.m.
