Gender-Changed Tennessee Fire Captain Files Grievance Against Chief – News:
KNOXVILLE (WATE) — A Knoxville firefighter claims she’s being discriminated against because she used to be a man.

Fire Capt. Jamie Faucon has filed a grievance against Knoxville Fire Chief Carlos Perez and her supervisor, Mark Foulkes.

She accuses them of depriving her of a take-home car, of reassigning her and cutting out her overtime because she is a transgendered firefighter.

Faucon also says in her grievance Foulkes used incorrect gender terms when referring to her in conversations.

She says she never thought she would wind up in a situation like this but the actions that allegedly took place earlier this week left her with no other choice.

Faucon had surgery to change from male to female in March 2005. Before making the change, she says she spoke with several city officials and her co-workers were supportive.

Faucon’s personal data change form notes her gender change was entered into the system in May 2005.(Read More)

I would love to comment on this, but I will refrain. If that is what he wanted to do. The whole thing about calling her sir or ma’am, well I can understand that they are confused. I can only imagine the jokes that go on in that department.
