The current law regarding bathrooms in Massachusetts, which allows transgender people to use opposite-sex private facilities, is a matter of unspeakable oppression against females.
At age six, I learned the price of being female when my father took us down South after my mother was killed in a car accident. Two signs over a water fountain: “white” and “colored.” To a six-year old, what could be better than colored water?
For drinking it, very large man yelled at me, called me profanities, scared the stuffing out of me, and sent me crying to my father. My father’s explanation did not sit right with me and I recall telling him that it was not fair. As a result, I drank out of “colored” water fountains all the way to Florida and back home to Wisconsin.
