As the debate rages on over North Carolina's transgender bathroom bill, and people across the nation are fighting on both sides of the controversy, it seems bathroom vigilantes are creating the exact kind of hostile environment in public bathrooms that they are claiming to be afraid of. Another victim of these gender police has come forward with a video posted to her Facebook page, telling the story of how she was harassed in a Walmart bathroom for looking like a transgender woman.
Twenty-two-year-old Aimee Toms from Naugatuck, Connecticut, took to Facebook on Friday, to share with the world what transpired when she dared to be a woman with short hair, sporting a baseball cap, in a woman's bathroom. Toms said in her video that as she was washing her hands in a Danbury, Connecticut, bathroom when a woman -- believing Toms to be transgender -- accosted her, screaming "you are not supposed to be here! You need to leave!" The woman then flipped Aimee off, called her "disgusting," and stormed out of the bathroom. It took a confused Toms a few minutes to realize that the obnoxious woman had believed she was a transgender woman, using the woman's bathroom -- which, incidentally, is not illegal in Connecticut.
