A US transgender man is leading the fight against proposed legislation that would make him use the women’s restroom. Using #WeJustNeedToPee, Michael Hughes of Minnesota is posting selfies from women’s bathrooms asking if he belongs there.
Minnesota is among four states considering laws that would require trans people to use male or female bathrooms based on the sex they were assigned at birth, not the gender they identify with. In Kentucky, for example, schools could be sued up to $2,500 if a trans student used the “wrong” bathroom.
In Hughes’ state, the Republican Party introduced a bill on March 6 to “protect and provide for the privacy and safety of all students enrolled in public schools and to maintain order and dignity in restrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms, showers, and other facilities where students may be in various states of undress in the presence of other students.”
