A restaurant in Texas named, Dodie’s Place Cajun Bar & Grill in Allen has faced backlash on social media after pictures of their bathroom signage were posted on the internet by a Texas editor, Dom DiFurio, on Monday.

The bathroom sign which is currently in use in the local restaurant has pictures of transgender celebrity Caitlyn Jenner, pre- and post-transition, to indicate the men’s and women’s rooms, respectively. While the women’s room featured Jenner's Vanity Fair cover, the men’s room had an image of Jenner when she won the Olympic gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Games. According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the bathroom signs have been in use since Aug. 15.

DiFurio issued his views on the matter on Dallas News and shared it on his Twitter page which also included Dodie's statement on the matter. The company issued a statement on their Facebook page which read, "First and foremost, our intention was not to make fun of or offend anyone when we installed the pictures of Bruce and Caitlyn on our bathroom doors. It was merely a lighthearted gesture to push back against the political correctness that seems to have a stranglehold on this country right now. We believe that political correctness has done more to silence rather than encourage important discussions that our society probably needs to have."

The editor, DiFurio from Dallas Morning News also spoke to Daily Dot and said that the restaurant isn’t "seated in a progressive area" and that he "wouldn’t consider it a particularly great place to be LGBTQ."

Twitterati was also very eager to reprimand the restaurant for their insensitive actions and many users tweeted their displeasure at the use of Jenner’s pictures.

A Twitter user by the name, Mike Sington wrote, "This can’t be politically correct. Texas restaurant designates men’s and women’s restrooms with pictures of Caitlyn Jenner and Bruce Jenner."

"This is HORRIBLE and BEYOND disrespectful. I would not be surprised if you lose business. I would never eat there if I saw that," Facebook user Kristen Heavey commented on the picture uploaded by the restaurant.

One of the more vocal critics of the bathroom signs was Jess Herbst, a transgender activist and mayor of New Hope, Texas. She spoke to on Thursday and said, "There is an obvious lack of understanding of gender dysphoria by the owner of the restaurant. Imagine the most humiliating and embarrassing moment of your life. Remember how you felt inside, that gut crushing, out of breath, verge of panic attack feeling. Now imagine posting a giant photo of that moment in a very public place. This is how the photos in his bathroom make transgender people feel."

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner first came out as a trans woman in a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April 2015. Jenner in the interview had revealed that she had dealt with gender dysphoria since she was young. She revealed that "for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman." Jenner underwent plastic surgery and completed sex gender reassignment surgery in January. She also has a memoir to her name titled, "The Secrets of My Life" which was published on April 25.

Ever since Jenner came out as a trans woman in 2015 she has been called the most famous openly transgender woman in the world.
