This woman was in line for the bathroom with her non-binary friend when they decided to switch to the men’s in order to skip the queue. Once they were questioned by security, the woman called him out for assuming her gender. Now they are asking Reddit whether this controversial decision was the right choice.
The Perfect Solution?
An incident at the bathroom of an all-day festival led to a group of friends and a 31-year-old woman facing a bathroom dilemma.
The line for the women’s restroom was huge, with about 10 minutes of waiting.
Her friend, a non-binary person assigned male at birth but presenting as male, had a suggestion.
They Tried Sneaking In
Why not use the men’s room, which had no line at all? So, they decided to give it a shot.
Sneaking into the nearly empty men’s room, they thought no one would even notice.
Caught Red Handed
They weren’t trying to inconvenience or make anyone uncomfortable. But as they were washing their hands, they overheard two women outside complaining to a security guard.
Apparently, they had seen girls going into the men’s room to skip the long line. It seemed their secret was out.
They Were Yelled At
Just as they were about to leave the bathroom, the security guard spotted the woman and couldn’t help but make a scene.
In a snarky tone, he yelled, “Ma’am! Ma’am! You do know this is the men’s room, right?”
Standing Against Discrimination?
Instead of apologising like she normally would, she decided to stand her ground. With her non-binary friend by her side, she fired back, “Well, what makes you think I’m a ma’am?”
The guard stumbled and awkwardly shrugged. Victory was theirs as they confidently walked away.
Reminiscing on Their Victory
Returning to their group of friends, her non-binary friend found the whole exchange hilarious.
They couldn’t resist sharing the story, making it sound like she had heroically challenged the security guard’s transphobia.
All her friends thought she was incredibly cool for what she did. No one considered her in the wrong. They even praised her for standing up against discrimination.
A Hint of Regret?
But now, she’s started feeling a bit guilty. It felt a bit like stealing the spotlight from the real struggles of the LGBT community. Could she be overthinking this?
She Got Conflicting Advice
The next day, she turned to the internet seeking opinions and judgments. It was a mixed bag, with arguments on both sides.
Many believed that this is nothing new. Others argued that the whole idea of gendered bathrooms is ridiculous in general.
