stop excluding trans people from public bathrooms. stop equating us with ‘criminals’ or sex offenders. we are there for the same exact reason you are: to go to the bathroom. we deserve a safe place to do our business just as much as you do.
i made this post way before the HB2 law. i do believe that this is as relevant as ever, maybe even more so. our safety and comfort matter much more than cis people’s feelings.
with recent events, this post matters more than ever. we have a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered in general- trans women have a 1 in 3 chance of being harrassed or attacked in public.
at this point im tired of being nice. we are most likely more scared of you than you are of us. we have to deal with the fact that people can get away with murdering us. we have to deal with the fact that we have much more a chance of being killed than the average person.
our lives matter much, much more than your transphobia.
