Transgender woman sues Wal-Mart over alleged bias in North Carolina

Wal-Mart Stores Inc was sued on Wednesday by a transgender woman who said she was wrongfully fired after complaining about harassment at the Sam’s Club warehouse store in North Carolina where she had worked for 11 years.

Charlene Bost, 46, said co-workers at the Kannapolis store where she had been a member service supervisor called her “sir,” “that thing with an attitude” and “shim,” a slur combining “she” and “him.” She also said her male boss subjected her to unwanted physical advances and referred to her as “it.”
