Trans woman berates much smaller man about sign she found offensive
A transgender city councilmember of Aberdeen, Washington confronted the owner of a Star Wars shop over a sign that reads, “If you are born with a dick, you are not a chick.”
“I don’t give a f–k about feelings anymore,” said Don Sucher, owner of Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop. “I went to Vietnam to fight for all this s–t. Do you think I care about some a–holes feelings? Absolutely not!”
Aberdeen, Washington City Councilmember Tiesa Meskis confronted Sucher over his sign which sits outside his store.
“Everybody loves it,” Sucher tells Meskis after she confronts him. “They take pictures of it. They post it. 9/10 customers love it.”
“You know what, that’s bullshit,” Meskis responds.
“No, what you’re spouting is bullshit,” Sucher says back. “No, it’s not. Trans women are women, sir, that sign is bullshit,” the angry transgender councilmember says in return.
“You know what, nobody confronts your a–. That’s the problem. If they say, what the f–k is going on…Do you know how many people you have embarrassed in city hall? They have to tolerate this s–t?” Sucher says to Meskis.
“Every time some bull shit like this happens, my sales go up because people are wanting this,” Sucher added.
“Really? We’re going to show them this side of you,” Meskis says, referring to the confrontation being video recorded, “Hopefully, we can wake you up. Let’s wake you up to the truth, sir.”
The tense confrontation continues for over five minutes as Meskis repeatedly yells, “Trans women are women” inside and outside Sucher’s store. Sucher repeatedly yells back, “you’re nuts.” “You’re not a woman.”

“I don’t care what they do, but don’t come in here and complain to me about stuff. I have free speech,” Sucher said to local media in the aftermath of the viral confrontation.
Meskis says she plans to hold a protest outside of Sucher’s store, which Sucher says supporters of his will show up to as well. Since the altercation went viral on social media, Sucher’s store has received hundreds of five-star reviews on Google.
The Independent Chronicle reached out to both Sucher and Meskis for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
