I Support Transgender Access to Bathrooms

[Content Note: Transphobia; sexual assault.]

Yesterday on Twitter, @EmmaCaterine urged: "I need every cis person to say that they support transgender access to bathrooms NOW. Your silence will permit this violence against us."

I absolutely and unequivocally support transgender access to bathrooms. And I reject being used as a prop in the transphobic campaign to deny trans people access to bathrooms, under the auspcies of "protecting me."

You know, there is actually a place where people are pissing where they shouldn't, flashing their junk at people, and committing sexual assaults against people who share the space with them. It's called the subway. Maybe these moral crusaders could look into making that space safe for women. From cis men.
