Crossing the Gender Norms

One of the questions I always get when I am doing an Outreach is, “What bathroom do I use?” well there is no right answer. If I use my birth gender bathroom, I might get killed and if I use the women’s bathroom I might get arrested.
I found this on a blog I read and this illustrates this dilemma.

The topic of the blogs is when Ian Harvie a female bodied, male identified comedian and his friend Margaret Clo went to used the women's bathroom at the Waldorf-Astoria. They were there attending a fundraiser that Bette Midler was giving for the NY Restoration Project.

Margaret Clo blog.

Also you might want to read one of my blog postings that I wrote on this same subject back in June.
