Bartender charged with hate crime for confronting male-to-female transgender who used women’s bathroom
By Belle Carter // Mar 18, 2024

Multnomah County Circuit Court recently found a Portland bartender guilty of a hate crime because she "misgendered" a male sex at birth (AMAB) male-to-female (M2F) transgender woman who used the women's bathroom.

Cassandra McIntyre, 40, was also charged with a second-degree bias crime and harassment following a two-day jury trial because of physically confronting the trans-identified biological male. Judge Christopher Marshall sentenced McIntyre to two years of probation and 50 hours of community service, according to the local news outlet Oregonian.

According to reports, on Dec. 27, 2022, a Sellwood bartender had just completed her shift and sat down to have a drink when she reportedly heard patrons complaining that 35-year-old Riis Larsen, the M2F transgender woman and self-described Marxist who uses pronouns that include she/her/hers/theirs, had cut in line to use the women's single-stall restroom and pushed other patrons in the process, as per court documents.

Last Tuesday, March 5, Larsen testified in court saying that she was shoved by McIntyre during the "physical confrontation" after using the women's restroom. The transgender claimed that McIntyre had cornered them and told them that they "were a man" and needed to use the men's restroom. Larsen said that they attempted to explain their "gender identity" to McIntyre but was told to "get out" by the bartender.

The bartender, in her testimony, said that she did not understand that she had been "misgendering" Larsen and had to look up the definition of transgender in the dictionary. Video surveillance footage from inside the establishment showed McIntyre shoving Larsen but did not pick up audio. The defendant did not deny pushing Larsen and asserted that she had just been "making space." "I wasn't trying to misgender her. I had to look up what transgender was in the dictionary," said McIntyre. "We were just arguing over spilled milk."

According to Larsen, she left the bar in tears and called 911 later that night. (Related: Transgender activists are using the power of the state to enforce their perverse ideology.)

Meanwhile, a witness who was inside the bar during the incident testified and claimed that he heard McIntrye repeatedly use the wrong pronouns for Larsen and overheard her saying that Larsen should not be allowed to use the women's restroom. During closing arguments, Prosecutor Charlie Weiss told the jury that Larsen "is scrutinized in a different way than most of us in our day-to-day lives are scrutinized. People sometimes express disagreement not with what she says, or what she does, but who she is."

McIntyre apologized in court and said that she would refrain from going to another local bar so Larsen would have a safe place to go. McIntyre's defense lawyer Henry Oostrom-Shah stated that she was hoping to locate an LGBTQ nonprofit that would accept her community service.

As per records, Portland prosecutors file more hate crime charges than any other district in the state.

Post Millennial editor sends Multnomah Country DA a media inquiry

Following the ruling, Post Millennial Senior Editor Andy Ngo posted on X, formerly Twitter, that he sent the office of District Attorney in Multnomah County in Oregon Mike Schmidt a media inquiry about its aggressive and successful prosecution of McIntyre. "The prosecution repeatedly brought attention to the misgendering during the trial to argue that it was a second-degree bias crime," he captioned his post.

In the correspondence, Ngo pointed out that during the trial, "your side presented evidence that the defendant had misgendered the trans activist. You brought a witness who testified that Ms. McIntyre used male pronouns to refer to the trans person. The defendant stated that she did not know what misgendering is and saw the person she confronted as male using a women's facility." "How do you align the prosecution with the protections guaranteed by the First Amendment? In Multnomah County, is misgendering a person a crime? Please clarify." Ngo said in the email.

Meanwhile, another commenter said: "Every time the left calls a trans-woman a woman they misgender them every bit as much as they claim the right misgenders them by calling them men. I thought the whole argument was that trans people are neither men, nor women, and we don’t get to say that there are only two genders anymore." The particular user said that the intellectual inconsistency from leftist DAs and Judges in Portland is on full display and that the remaining question is whether it is because Democrats don't even realize it, or is it because this was a partisan gaslighting and goalpost shifting exercise from the onset.
