DANBURY - Aimee Toms was washing her hands in the women’s bathroom at Walmart in Danbury Friday when a stranger approached her and said, “You’re disgusting!” and “You don’t belong here!”
After momentary confusion, she realized that the woman next to her thought - because of her pixie-style haircut and baseball cap - that she was transgender.
Toms believes the incident happened because of the national controversy sparked by a law that was passed in North Carolina attempting to force transgender people to use the bathroom of the gender they were identified as at birth. Since then, religious conservatives have launched a boycott of Walmart competitor Target, which has said transgender people are welcome to use its bathrooms freely. Nationally, Walmart has been silent on the issue.
Toms, a 22-year-old from Naugatuck who works at a retail store in the Bethel-Danbury retail area around Walmart, posted a video “rant” about her experience on Facebook Friday that had been viewed more than 12,000 times by Sunday evening.

What catches my attention the most is that there's some broad out there who thinks other women are supposed to be ultra-"feminine-looking," or something, despite the world outside her bedroom showcasing that women aren't cardboard cutouts of barbies. Has this dumb b*tch ever looked past her own nose?


Assuming that this story isn't fabricated. I wouldn't be surprised if it's true, but I always hold some reservations about these kinds of headlines.


Even if it's true, the lady may have mistook her for a straight-up man, not a trans.

That's weird. I only find it disgusting when people don't wash their hands.

Is that it? She just called her disgusting? I admit, it is a bit short sighted, but can it really be called news?

Most media outlets will jump on and sensationalize anything if it looks like it's connected to the latest hot-button social issue of the week. Nothing like a little controversy to make money.

Right,. Highlights the paranoia inherent behind the making of that Law, so it should come as no surprise this might happen.

I'm just waiting for the inevitably one where some idiot in NC does this to some other idiot in NC who is also a religious conservative. Its inevitable one of the idiots supporting this bill will unknowingly pass genital judgement on another idiot that supports this bill for not meeting their standards of femininity. Resulting in some sort of Youtube God Off(tm) in a Walmart bathroom.

Its only a matter of time before the Ouroboros of American social conservatism starts eating itself yet again. -.-
