SPAIN: Male Soldier Who Identifies As A “Lesbian” Sues Military For €50,000 After Being Denied Access To Women’s Washrooms – Reduxx

A soldier in Spain is suing the Ministry of Defense for almost €50,000 after accusing officials of not properly facilitating or accomodating his “gender transition.” Francisco Javier López, 43, recently announced he identified as a lesbian, but that he would not be changing his name or physical appearance in any way.

“I’m not going to get an amputation, nor will I have any surgery,” López told Spanish media. “I am happy with my body and I like women.” He continued by revealing his alleged motivations for the change, stating: “I realized some things and I felt like a woman. For example, I’m a beautician, and I feel better talking to women than men.”

López is the father of an underage girl, and, just months prior to deciding to change his sex marker, he appeared on a dating reality show called First Dates. During his time on the show, he confessed to liking “long hair and high heels,” and also said he had a “high heel shoe fetish.”

But the Army refused his request, claiming that there were space issues and that the women’s facilities were already over-occupied. After filing a complaint, the Army then told López that the expansion of the female locker rooms were underway, and offered him access to the women’s senior command locker rooms on a fixed schedule in the interim. López would have been able to use those facilities at set times, preventing the female soldiers from having to interact with him in the intimate space.

But López believed that those measures were unfair, and said he felt discriminated against because of his transgender status.

The surge in men rushing to change their gender markers has been denounced by some trans activists as “trans fraud,” despite the fact that they had been the ones to campaign to relax self-identification requirements.
