There are people right now who don’t understand why trans people are fighting for the right to use the bathroom that associates with their gender identity, as opposed to their assigned at birth sex. These peoples’ frustration or confusion over the issue doesn’t necessarily come from a place of transphobia, but potentially from a place of ignorance, of simply not knowing any actual trans people, or of not understanding their experience. And so we share the stories of those who’ve had going to a public bathroom turned into a battlefield.

Speaking out in support of the trans, non-binary, and genderqueer community is comedian Rhea Butcher, who currently co-stars with her real-life wife Cameron Esposito in the Seeso series Take My Wife. Last night, Butcher took to Twitter to share some of her experiences, as a genderqueer-butch lesbian whose gender expression may not read as traditionally feminine.
