Do you consider yourself a generally reasonable person? If you see water, do you assume it’s wet? And if I pointed to a taco and told you it was a hot dog, would you disagree?
If your answer to the all of the above is “yes,” I propose the following: if you see a large, bearded person with a tenor voice, is your first thought, “Hey look, a woman!”
Of course not. Because if you truly are reasonable and able to understand that water is, in fact, wet, and that tacos are not hot dogs, you also understand that women generally don’t sport five o’clock shadows and speak in the treble clef.
Enter this biological male, who was so incensed at being yelled at by an actual woman for using an apartment building's female restroom that he took to social media to whine about how everyone should know he is actually a she, and that his life as a transgender person is hard enough without people seeing his face stubble and telling him not to violate women’s spaces.
Biological man who identifies as Trans gets upset when a woman tells him not to use the WOMENS ONLY restroom— Oli London (@OliLondonTV) January 23, 2023
Would any woman or young girl feel safe or comfortable with this man in their restroom or Locker-room? @againstgrmrs pic.twitter.com/RGptt9GqYk
“I had a neighbor confront me for using the women’s restroom,” the man begins, the light glinting off his graying whiskers atop a triple-chin. “I lived here four an a half years. Everyone should know that I am a trans woman. I’ve always been known as Kaelie. I’ve always used she/her pronouns.”
He goes on to say that due to a bout of medication-induced diarrhea - seriously, ew - he rushed into the women’s bathroom in his living facility, only to emerge to a female resident calling him out for using the wrong bathroom.
“She kept saying, ‘You’re a man,’” he ranted. “She kept saying it over and over. And then she kept saying, ‘You’re not a she, you’re a he.’”
First off, find that lady and give her a medal.
But it gets better. Apparently unable to face the simple fact that he is, in fact, a dude, this biological male got so upset that he began screaming at the woman, using all manner of expletives in front of her and her two small children (his words, not mine).
“You don’t know what it’s like to be a trans person!” he then complained in defense.
Nope, sure don’t. But I do know what it’s like to be a real woman who doesn’t want hairy dudes all up in our personal spaces. I know what it’s like to be a female who doesn’t want men in my locker room or restroom or changing area. I know what it’s like to be a mom to a daughter who shouldn’t have to pee in a stall next to Wanda the Weightlifter. And I know what it’s like to be a sane human being who isn’t so openminded that my brain has fallen out of my head and I’ve lost all capacity for reasoning.
Unfortunately, we can’t all be as lucky, I guess.
