Transphobic ‘Bathroom Cop’ Follows Dallas Woman Into The Restroom

by Rob Smith May 03, 2016

Apparently, creepy self-appointed “bathroom cops” are what women have to deal with in the wake of HB2.

From The Dallas Observer comes the extremely unsettling story and video of a woman trailed into a restroom by a complete stranger because she didn’t look “woman” enough for him. Seriously.

Jessica Rush was born female and is not transitioning, but committed the crime of not fitting into rigid gender norms, which a strange man felt the need to address.

Read on and share our fury:

Case in point: the man who, um, heroically barged into a women’s restroom at Baylor Medical Center in Frisco on Thursday to make sure that Jessica Rush, who manages a local health-food takeout place, was peeing in the proper place.

She was, for the record, and her situation isn’t particularly complicated. Rush was born and identifies as female and has no plans to change that. “I look very much like a girl,” she says. “I’m not trying to  transition, nothing like that.”

But Rush wears her hair in a bleached blond fauxhawk and dresses androgynously. On Thursday, she was wearing a T-shirt from her alma mater, Texas Tech, with basketball shorts.

Being accosted by the man led to this awkward conversation:

“When I saw you enter I thought you was…” the man says.

“A boy?” Rush offers.

“Yeah, it was kind of confusing.” Certainly she can see why. “You dress like a man,” he says several times as he walks away.

Watch the awkward encounter below, and join us in thinking wistfully back to the days when this wasn’t a thing.

by Dan Tracer October 24, 2016

When you have a body like this, you should probably just go ahead and do everything sans clothing. McIntosh knows: “If you appreciate your body, why would you want to cover it up? You might as well show it off.” Agreed. “I live in an apartment with buildings facing onto it, so when I walk [...]
