I was informed today that the latest bathroom story I shared earlier is a hoax – the story was made up with pictures from something else:

So I went back to check the first story I’d heard about (which happened to a different woman) and the link I’d posted returned “Not Found.” However, the story is still being reported by The Advocate. The latest is that she’s filing a lawsuit:

A Detroit woman has filed a lawsuit against restaurant chain Fishbone’s after a frightening incident in which she was mistaken for a man and tossed out of a women’s bathroom, reports TV station WXYZ.

So, yes, I was taken in by the hoax, but the problem is VERY real.
