A Lesbian Couple Said They Felt Degraded When Someone Told Them 'This is Not What God Created'


A lesbian couple say they were subject to homophobic abuse by a Tesco checkout operator who told them they shouldn’t be married because “this is not what God created.”


Faye and Leanne Leaver told PinkNews that they popped into the Stockport Tesco Express last week to get some groceries – before being confronted with homophobic abuse from a part-time minister on the till. ?
The checkout operator, who they said was called Maxwell, told Faye: “‘You need a bag, as your husband wouldn’t want you to carry all this.”

“My wife just said: ‘It’s OK, my wife is here – she can help.’
“He then stopped serving us to then questioned us about being wife and wife. Maxwell persistently asked: ‘What do you mean? How do you get wife and wife?’

“This made me very uncomfortable, as I could sense he had an issue,” said Faye, 29.

Matters only got worse from there, she said.

“He relentlessly told us how this was wrong, we shouldn’t be wife and wife and this is not what God created.

“Maxwell then stopped again to look me straight in the face. Dismissing the fact my wife was stood next to me, he lectured me on how I needed a husband.”

She said that the employee told her how a heterosexual marriage “was God’s way and the way to procreate.”

Faye added: “My wife then informed him that we have a child.”

This only led to more invasive questions, she said, before Maxwell went back to telling Faye how she needed a husband.
“I felt harassed and degraded by these comments and the attention they drew,” Faye said.

Leanne was allegedly being treated by Maxwell as if she was invisible, so she “walked away, in obvious despair.”

But despite Leanne leaving in distress, she said Maxwell “notified me that it wasn’t my fault, because I didn’t pray for this.”

The pair, who are both retail store managers, told PinkNews that they “don’t want to go to Tesco anymore” following the incident.

Leanne, 34, said: “I felt like I’d just been verbally attacked.”

She added: “It was one of those moments where you wanted the world to swallow you up and you just disappear.”
