Pennsylvania Woman Pauline Davis Says She Was Fired from J&J Snack Foods over Prosthetic Penis

A Pennsylvania woman claims she was fired from her job because she wore a prosthetic penis to work.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, 45-year-old Pauline Davis says she was terminated from the J&J Snack Foods plant in Moosic after she confided in several co-workers that she was wearing a prosthetic penis because she was contemplating a gender change. One of them told management, and Davis was then allegedly fired from her job as a packer/line inspector.

A lawsuit filed by Davis on Wednesday in the U.S. District Court in Scranton alleges that her termination was discriminatory because a male co-worker who dressed in women’s clothing, used female prostheses and took hormone treatments was not fired or reprimanded.

Lalena J. Turchi, Davis’s attorney, added that the prosthetic penis was concealed and “in no way interfered with her ability to do her job.”

Davis, who filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2010, is seeking back pay, damages for suffering and humiliation and punitive damages.
