The poor guy had a difficult time discerning a person’s gender, so he was going to “prove” he’s a man.

A Fayetteville councilman with a history of hostility toward the LGBT community is under fire for confronting a woman he thought might be a man and threatening to wave his penis at her in a packed restaurant.

According to the Arkansas Times, John La Tour sold himself in a recent election as the candidate of “Conservative Values – Conservative Choice” and was rewarded with a $2,000 campaign donation from former Christian reality show stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar…

Saturday, Gavin Smith wrote a  Facebook post about the incident the city councilman was involved in at a local restaurant called Arsaga’s.

“Yesterday Fayetteville alderman John la tour ward 4 assaulted a dear friend in public demanding they choose a gender in a packed restaurant. He demanded she pick a gender declaiming loudly that he couldn’t tell if she was a man or a woman. She is not transgendered and does not in any way present any ambiguity about gender in any way. She’s a woman. He then explained that he was a man and could prove it by dropping his pants and showing his penis,” Smith wrote.” That is bullying behavior and unacceptable on so many levels. Please call any news outlets you know and alert them to his “protests.” I doubt offering to expose yourself would be considered protected speech even by the right wing activist Dugger family who funded his campaign. He should be kicked out of office.”
