Transgender Implodes over Store Owner's 'Transphobic' Sign - WATCH
'If you are born with a d**k, you are not a chick,' the sign read
A video has gone viral across social media showing a wild confrontation between a store owner and a towering transgender who was outraged by his "transphobic" sign.
A transgender politician confronted the owner of a Washington state Star Wars memorabilia store, triggering a shouting match over a sign in his window that said “If you are born with a d**k you are not a chick,” according to a report.
Tiesa Meskis, a trans councilor in the town of Aberdeen, stormed into the Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop and had words with owner Don Sucher on Wednesday over the handwritten message that he posted, according to King 5 TV.
“Trans women are women,” Meskis, a biological male who "identifies" as female, can be seen yelling in the video while standing face-to-face with Sucher.
His window sign said: “Just out. Dr. Seuss’s new book. ‘If you are born with a d**k, you are NOT a chick’. Period.
"This new release is out now because cancel culture banned his early books.”
Sucher said that he was expressing his freedom of speech with the sign, and that if someone did not agree with him, they were free to leave his Star Wars memorabilia shop, King 5 reported.
Meskis said the sign was demeaning to transwomen and wanted the shopkeeper to know that it was hurtful.
"We are people," said Meskis.
"We are who we are and we all want to be accepted in our community."
Sucher fired back: “You’re nuts. You’re not a woman.
"You don't look like a woman, you don't act like a woman," he added.
"You are not a chick."
Sucher said he didn't care about how the sign made people feel.
"I don't give a s**t about feelings anymore," he said.
"Do you think I care about some s**t feeling? Absolutely not!"
He says the picture is still up today and that everyone loves it.
Both Meskis and Sucher said they have received support from others online following the incident.
Meskis admitted to the Washington Examiner that Sucher has the right to express himself, but still wanted him to remove it.
"What he wrote there was so demeaning and so dismissive of who I am, who any trans woman is," Meskis said.
"We are people.
"We are who we are, and we all want to be accepted in our community."
Meskis shared the video of their five-minute heated exchange on Facebook.
The move prompted leftist activists and Antifa mobs to organize a protest outside the store.
As news of the protests quickly spread, patriots and First Amendment advocates rallied in support of Vietnam veteran Sucher.

The protest was reportedly called off when Mr. Sucher's supporters massively outnumbered the protesters outside the store.
