Grocery Bans Transgender Idahoan

A 25-year-old transgender woman was banned from a western Idaho grocery store after customers complained she used the women's restroom.  Alberto Robledo of Lewiston identifies herself as female but has not yet had gender reassignment surgery. Robledo, who goes by Ally, says she was leaving a Rosauers store in Lewiston late on April 8 when police officers gave her paperwork informing her that she had a “no trespassing” order against her for using the women's restroom/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Did the grocery store make the right call in trespassing the transgender woman?
