Woman who donates her hair to cancer patients harassed in Walmart bathroom for being ‘transgender’

According to the Danbury News Times, a woman said she was harassed in a Danbury, Connecticut Walmart for being “transgender” due to the fact that she has short hair.

Aimee Toms, who said she was wearing a baseball cap at the time of the incident, sports short hair because she regularly donates it to cancer patients. As Toms was washing her hands in the restroom, she said she was approached by a woman who told her, “You’re disgusting!” and “You don’t belong here.”

“After experiencing the discrimination they face firsthand, I cannot fathom the discrimination transgender people must face in a lifetime,” She said in a Facebook post. “Can you imagine going out every day and having people tell you, you should not be who you are or that people will not accept you as who you are?”

“No one was telling these people to be scared of transgender people before,” she continued. “No one was telling them that they should be throwing people out of bathrooms. As if it wasn’t scary enough for transgender people to use the bathroom before.”
