Respect is free…Hate has untold costs – Briden Cole Schueren



I was going to wait to post this, since it will be on display at an upcoming art exhibit against hate. 

Due to the recent bullshit that some “cheeze puff” made an order for… taking away the protection of trans youth in school, I feel this is relevant to post. 
I am a trans individual, yes, and I went through school from elementary to college being physically, emotionally, and verbally attacked in BOTH the women’s and men’s restrooms. 
SO WHAT RESTROOM SHOULD I be in?!? 
You want the suicide rate to go up for trans youth, well here is how: 

Take away the basic need to pee, and now trans individuals have to fear even more to do that! Not like we already have so much going on through our minds, that our body does not match our mind. What the fuck! (Williams Institute law: It is between 50-78% of a suicide rate for trans individuals from elementary school through college.)

This image? 

It is about a male identifying person in a cross between WHICH restroom to use. Even as an adult I have PTSD for using a restroom. You know what that does to someone emotionally, especially if you are someone that uses the restroom multiple times a day? I just can’t, I don’t get it. 
WHY THE FUCK DOES IT MATTER! LET US PEE IN PEACE!!! 
Please.
Do YOU occasionally toss around a casual joke about ‘dudes in a dress’ or ‘pansies’ or jokes that otherwise poke fun at us trans folks?? 

Do YOU support those bathroom bills? 

Did YOU vote for Trump and his bills that are putting these laws into effect??

If so, YOU HAVE BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS.
