Hate Not Here.
In recent months, it seems that one of the biggest social issues in the country is bathroom rights.
Though for many it seems to be a topic we understand and observe before entering elementary school, not all of us feel safe or comfortable in the restroom that society would have us use.
Trans rights are at the forefront of today’s social movements, and with states like North Carolina passing laws barring transgender citizens from using the bathrooms that match their identity and even physicality–instead dictating that they use the bathroom that matches their sex as listed on their birth certificate–more individuals and groups are speaking and acting out on both sides of the issue.
At a time when many are coming forward to support the trans community, others are merely fanning the flames of hatred to increase the transphobia that already exists in our society.
