forever urging women to borrow their boyfriends’ shirts, but according to civil
rights group Make the Road New York, that’s about as open-minded as
the company gets when it comes to gender expression. The group staged a protest
outside the J.Crew on
on Sunday after the store failed a test to see whether it would hire a
one trans and one not, to 24 different stores. At J.Crew, the trans applicant
was treated dismissively, while his testing partner was offered a job.
Interestingly, of the 24 stores surveyed, only Dean & Deluca offered jobs
to both testers, and the only place that offered a job solely to the
transgender tester was the Virgin Megastorewhich can’t be much solace to
population, since the Virgin stores closed last year.
