After nasty altercation in a Walmart restroom in Danbury, Connecticut, a cisgender female who was assumed to be trans says she’s utterly shocked and “cannot fathom” what it would be like to face transphobic opposition every day.
Aimee Toms, 22, says that another woman accosted her while she was washing her hands.
Accoriding Toms, she was in the women’s bathroom at Walmart when a woman approached her from behind and said, “You are not supposed to be here! You need to leave!”
She says she was sporting a pixie cut as she had recently donated her hair to a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients. That day she had also worn a baseball hat.
After experiencing the discrimination they face firsth and, I cannot fathom the discrimination transgender people must face in a lifetime. Can you imagine going out every day and having people tell you you should not be who you are or that people will not accept you as who you are?’
Toms’ video has since gone viral, with over 160k views thus far.
People on social media are commending Toms for sharing her experience and for standing up against transphobia and anti-trans sentiments.
