(STORYFUL) - Sarah McBride is an LGBT rights activist who made headlines when she came out as transgender while serving as president of her college’s student body in 2012.
Here I am using a women's restroom in North Carolina that I'm technically barred from being in. They say I'm a pervert. They say I'm a man dressed as a woman. They say I'm a threat to their children. They say I'm confused. They say I'm dangerous. And they say accepting me as the person I have fought my life to be seen as reflects the downfall of a once great nation. I'm just a person. We are all just people. Trying to pee in peace. Trying to live our lives as fully and authentically as possible. Barring me from this restroom doesn't help anyone. And allowing me to continue to use this bathroom - just without fear of discrimination and harassment - doesn't hurt anyone. Stop this. We are good people. #repealhb2
McBride shared a selfie on April 21 in what she says is a women’s restroom in North Carolina.
The photo is taken in protest against the recent passage of House Bill 2 in North Carolina, which prohibits transgender men and women from using the restroom that matches their sexual identity.
In the post, McBride wrote, “They say I’m a pervert. They say I’m a man dressed as a woman. They say I’m a threat to their children. They say I’m confused…I’m just a person. We are all just people. Trying to pee in peace…And allowing me to continue to use this bathroom – just without fear of discrimination and harassment – doesn’t hurt anyone."
