Even cisgender people aren’t safe from the transphobic mania over bathrooms.
A Connecticut woman, who sports a pixie haircut, says she was harassed in a Walmart restroom by a woman who apparently mistook her as transgender.
After posting a Facebook video about the incident, Aimee Toms said she’s been threatened by internet trolls and called a “lesbian” and “whore.”
“People have irrational fears, I’d like for them to know this simply isn’t something to be so angry about,” Toms, 22, told the Daily News.
“Transgender people affect their lives in no way, shape, or form.”
The alleged incident comes as North Carolina’s obsessive quest to restrict transgender bathroom use has exploded into the national issue, with the Justice Department suing the state over the law it called “state-sponsored discrimination.”
