One of the users made a regressive comment about people being confused by the name Transgender Tasty Hut, suggesting that it would be catering only to transgenders.

The user wrote ‘Just wanted to ask, why write transgender in front of the shop? Might create confusion as to whether the shop is only for transgenders. What’s the need for that? Let the name be like every other shop.

However, Lawrence gave the user a befitting reply, If you name a shop as ‘Kumar food hut’, does that mean it is only for Kumars?

Another user wrote ‘Why not write transgender?!? If people can write the name of their communities, Bengalis, Madeas tiffin, etc, why can’t a transgender person proudly proclaim their identity in their store?! Kentucky Fried Chicken isn’t only for people in Kentucky’
