(CN: transphobia, murder)

…if you support the Arizona bathroom bill that would prevent trans* folks from using the bathroom of their preferred gender, I just want to make this clear.

These are the people you are insisting must use the women’s room:

And these are the people you are insisting must use the men’s room:

I’m just sayin’.  For people who get all up in arms about “men in the ladies’ room,” y’all seem to really want those guys up there in your bathrooms.  And you really seem to want to send the women (and little girl) up there into the guy’s bathroom.  Just seems weird to me, is all.

(A depressing side note: I had a very hard time finding pictures for transwomen, because every time I’d click on one, I’d find out she had been recently murdered – most often for being transgender.  Didn’t really want to do that, as I felt it would be disrespectful.)

(Also: the pictures I’ve used are all of people who are openly trans* in their public lives.  If someone isn’t, please don’t out them.  That’s not cool.)

H/t to chris the cynic for suggesting this particular line of thought, btw
