Exactly. I'm FtM (still pre-op) and I'm in that awkward stage where I either get mildly weird looks from going into the male restroom-- but I don't feel fully comfortable and "passing" yet, so I usually use the female restroom where I get blatant stares and the occasional woman shouting at me. I try to stay away from public restrooms because of this, especially with the bathroom issue suddenly getting blown up by the media, which is honestly ridiculous.

How dare you. You think you can just prance around here and walk all over us? I don't think so. 
This person did nothing to you, and you think you have the audacity to spread transphobia and hate here? Well, you can go and shove that all up your hateful ass.  And kindly, go fuck yourself. Thank you.

You know , it's pretty damn easy developing transhobia as transgender itself doesn't make even the slightest of sense.

I have that issue all the time it sucks. I have no choice but to use the female's lavatory since I never find family ones. It is real funny and awkward when you enter and females look at you like 'why is there a boy in the girls restroom'

I think there is an app that helps trans and non-binary people find family/gender neutral bathrooms now.  But, yes, I can definitely relate to this.  My internal monologue is like "You're a dude, go to the men's room.  You'll look like a perv in the women's!"  And yet, out of habit and lack-of-passing as male, I always trudge into the women's.

I am the same way. Especially in the "lack of passing" area. My mom won't let me cut my hair. Do you know of any ways of convincing parents to do something that they were previously opposed to?

Sorry, wish I did. I don't pass at all (long hair, round hips, chest). My parents are deep in denial, so I returned to the closet like a good boy. My only advice is to either drop hints or wait. Waiting's the most difficult, but it's also the safest.
Good luck, mate.

If only there were more family bathrooms out there. I swear, unless I'm about to pee my pants, I'm not going in the women's.

In doubt, use the family restroom, it's what my mother always told if I was unsure. Helps loads too if there are a lot more places that have them. Overall on this, wonderfully done.

I really like this piece. Would it be possible for me to use it in a presentation I'm doing for therapists who want to better serve the trans community? I'm FTM. Thanks for considering my request. Colin

This is powerful. And happens to me so much, especially at work. (i work retail) It's like everyone knows physically i'm a girl so no matter how desperately i want to use the men's room if a co worker were to see me i'm doomed. It really sucks.

I love this art even though I don't identify as transgender, even though I always wear boys clothes and sometimes wish I were a boy. It reminds me of when I was nine years old and I was chased out of the toilets by a bunch of girls because they thought I was a boy! Anyways, enough of my ramblings...

This isn't really an issue for me, I'm a girl so I go in the girl bathroom: at school, at the shops, in cafés. I mean, girls should go to the girl's room and boys to the men's room!

But you're not a girl who everybody thinks is a guy. The fact that this isn't an issue for you doesn't mean it's not an issue for others.

Well then, you're lucky. And you're lucky that your identity fits in the gender binary, too.

Because you're not trans or nonbinary. Don't judge unless you've been through it.

This is pretty sadly accurate. I always feel like a rapist in the women's (some of the looks they give me are just down right mean) and like i'm going to get assaulted in the men's (especially when it's only a few people in there and it's later in the evening). Most of the time, I avoid drinking liquids while I'm away from home.

this happens alot to me actually :1 like the other day at dunkin' donuts i was about to walk into the boys bathroom for like the first time ever, because i recently just came out as a transmale, and my friends stopped me and told me to go into the girls bathroom because i had been going in to it for years and that since i have to plumbing i had no choice....so now what bathroom do i use? because apparently there is no such thing as a unisex bathroom anymore...

If it helps, I sit down when I piss anyway, so I don't think many guys in the lavatory will care much, so long as you don't stick out like a sore thumb.

Good thing my school has private bathrooms anyone can use. Granted, there's only two that I know of, in a campus of 4000, but whatevs! Better than nothing, I suppose.

This is a great pic.
