Woman says her fake male parts got her fired

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, a northeastern Pennsylvania woman is suing a South Jersey-based maker of frozen treats and other snack foods, claiming that she was wrongfully fired because she wore a prosthetic male organ to work.
Pauline David, 45, wore the device to the J&J Snack Foods plant in Moosic while she contemplated a gender change, according to a federal civil-rights complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Scranton. She told several co-workers about the device, and someone told management. She was subsequently fired from her job as a packer/line inspector.
Davis filed a complaint in March 2010 with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission office in Philadelphia, claiming gender and gender-identity discrimination. She is seeking back pay, damages for suffering and humiliation, and punitive damages, according to this week’s lawsuit.
