As you have probably heard, Target recently updated their company policy on bathroom usage to be trans-inclusive. To those promoting the social media campaign against this, I say:

If you don’t like Target’s bathroom policy, then don’t use their bathroom.
No one is trying to make you!

You are overly privileged to live in a country and world that has considered it a right for you to be comfortable. This socio-cultural phenomenon is called heteronormativity.

When you experience a tiny discomfort you expect the rest of the world to fight for what is your gendered privilege.

What if you were on the other side?

What if society existed in such a way where you were never comfortable to use a public restroom because of your gender identity. Stop being so selfish!
