AE has been forced to reverse their policy on "personal appearance" by requiring their employees where gender-specific clothes..Even tho I totally support all transgender people being able to express themselves...I think businesses have a right to control what kind of image they want to present to customers...and I mean if the image they present offends you...then just boycott the store...Ive never even shopped at AE anyway...but I mean a business should be able to choose how their employees act to promote a certain image. This would be like forcing Christian bookstores to hire Muslims because of "religious discrimination". I mean let businesses do what they want...I'm sure many shops would welcome transgender employees and might find a large market for those people. But I think it's not good to make businesses conform to a certain image.

American Eagle has a pretty mainstream clean cut image. Transgender people don't fit that. It's not as if they are denying them housing, discriminating against them in a way that will negatively mar the course of their life, they just can't work at that store. Someone who is transgender would probably fit in better at Hot Topic or Urban Outfitters.1
