The fight for basic human rights expanded in Connecticut when a woman, with short hair, glasses and wearing a baseball cap, was asked to leave a Walmart bathroom. The bathrooms, particularly women's bathrooms (so I'm told) all have stalls. Nobody sees nobody's genitals. The ignorant bigots need to get a grip. For those of you who don't think Facebook is too weird, you can follow Aimée Toms. She's also expanding on YouTube.

A Connecticut woman with short hair says she was mistaken for a transgender woman and told to leave a Wal-Mart bathroom. Aimee Toms, 22, posted a video to Facebook on Friday recounting the incident, saying a woman confronted her in the restroom and told her to leave. “She said, ‘You are not supposed to be here. You need to leave,’” Ms. Toms said. “So at first I was like, ‘Does she think I work at a different store, and I shouldn’t be in this bathroom?’ So I said, ‘Yes I do,’ and then she flipped me off, and she was like, ‘You’re disgusting,’ and stormed out. “She just thought I was somebody who was transgender, and she thought I was a dude who was hiding in the women’s bathroom,” she said. Ms. Toms, who has glasses and short brown hair, also said she was wearing a baseball cap at the time. The nation is in the middle of a heated debate about transgender access to restrooms. In response to a Charlotte city ordinance, North Carolina enacted a law regulating public facilities on the basis of biological sex.So, are people going to need to give blood or hair sample before being directed to the appropriate bathrooms?
