The owner of a Washington state Star Wars memorabilia store got caught on video having a shouting match with a transgender politician who confronted him 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 councilwoman 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 can be seen yelling in the video as she stands 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.”
The Vietnam veteran defended the message as he faced off with Meskis.
“Everybody loves it,” he declared in the video. “They take pictures of it. They post it. 9/10 customers love it.”
When Meskis accused the shop owner of lying, Sucher said: “No, what you’re spouting is bulls–t.”
“No it’s not. Trans women are women, sir, that sign is bulls–t,” Meskis hit back.
Sucher later told the trans woman: “You know what, nobody confronts your a-s. That’s the problem.
“Every time some bulls–t like this happens, my sales go up because people are wanting this.”
The argument eventually spilled out onto the street with Meskis repeatedly shouting: “Trans women are women.”
Sucher fired back: “You’re nuts. You’re not a woman.”
Meskis shared the video of their five-minute heated exchange on Facebook.
The shop owner later told King5 that he was entitled to display the sign in his window.
“I don’t care what they do but don’t come in here and complain to me about stuff. I have free speech,” he told the outlet.
“I don’t give a (expletive) about feelings anymore. I went to Vietnam to fight for all this (expletive). Do you think I care about some (expletive) feeling? Absolutely not.”
The councilmember said she understood Sucher had a right to free speech but still wanted to confront the store owner.
“We are people. We are who we are and we all want to be accepted in our community,” she said.
