She was told about a more permanent, two-year housing program for women, but then denied the option because he had not yet had gender reassignment surgery.

"After I said no I still have a penis, he said ’Well, that’s why we can’t give you a room in with the real women,’" Wiley told the Dallas Voice. "It was putting me in an uncomfortable situation and very rude."


But I guess him whipping his dick out in front of women wouldn't be rude. Does this crap ever end with these mentally disturbed sickos?

No, that's your dream material.

Residents aren't flashing whatever body parts at one another in the housing unit.

Now for the rest of the story as Paul Stanley would say. This women was staying at the salvation army shelter but they have a time limit on how long one person can stay. It expired and she was asking counselor if there was anywhere else she could stay they said the only other program they have was a women’s shelter. In The women’s shelter there are two people to a room and the bathroom are all european which means there’s one big bathroom at the end of the hall per floor and everyone uses it. They have open showers in european bathrooms. She was asked if she had GRS surgery yet when she responded NO. she was told that wasn’t going to work. So as you can see the Salvation Army had helped her even though she is transgender and her was willing to help her again if she had been post-op. I can fully understand the Salvation Army’s concern and don’t feel as though they discriminated against her at all.
As far as the Dallas Non discrimination Policy goes it doesn’t cover “Free” housing in a charity program it strictly deals with rental housing such as houses, apt and hotel room. Also the Salvation Army is a Christian Org so they could fall back on the Religious exemption that in the non discrimination policy if need be.
I have found in the passed that the Salvation Army has helped many gay ,Lesbian and trans people despite their religious beliefs so I find it very unfair to bash them just because one trans person who doesn’t meet the qualification for a women’s shelter gets deny entry.
