I'm five feet tall and am generally pretty useless at defending myself [View all]

and you know what i worry about when using public bathrooms?

--asshole women who decide they are genderpolicing bathrooms when using a public restroom with my wife, because she does not fit their idea of what a woman should look like.

you know what i dont worry about?

-- transwomen. transpeople.

So yeah, fuck you asshole women who think gender policing a bathroom is your job, because of who you think counts as a woman and does not count as a woman. FUCK YOU.
