A Sacramento bakery posted a photo of a cake they made with a dress wearing Ken doll to Facebook and before long they were inundated with comments ranging from supportive to angered.

Co-owner of Freeport Bakery, Marlene Goetzeler, who posted the image, said she wasn’t expecting such a strong reaction.

“First, I was shocked, then I was surprised and then I was like, ‘Well, you can’t make everyone happy,'” she said.

Goetzeler said she deleted the negative comments, not wanting “the Facebook page to become a big drama.” She added that most of the feedback has been positive, and that some people have even come into the bakery to voice their support in person. She said she is grateful for that support.

Deodorant Ad Perfectly Nails What’s Wrong With The Trans Bathroom Debate

by Dan Tracer October 26, 2016

Leave it to a deodorant company to get what so many elected officials in this country can’t quite wrap their heads around — that there is no “one way” to express gender. And while right wing politicians and talking heads spend no shortage of time obsessing over how they, and most importantly their pure and [...]
