I learned about the term 'passing privilege' and frankly was stunned to learn about this issue - one that I've never really considered before.
Here are links to three articles referencing the stories Lucy and I mention in the video:
The Trans Student attacked in a university bathroom in Long Beach, California Transgender Student Attacked on CSULB Campus Speaks Out
The Trans Woman arrested for using the woman's bathroom in Houston, Texas Trans Woman Speaks About Restroom Arrest
The story of the butch woman who during gay pride in New York City was thrown out of a restaurant for using the women's restroom is in the article, Restrooms Become Gender-Identity Battleground
Ever since this conversation, I think about the challenges Gender Queer people face each time I have to use a public restroom.
I'm so grateful to Lucy for sharing this with me... and with us.
