In an incident that incites repulsion and demands urgent action, a video recently surfaced from Burlington, Massachusetts, showing a transgender ‘woman’ with an erect penis waiting to use a cubicle in a women’s restroom.
The individual in question, caught on camera, is seen glancing toward women who can be heard in the background. He then shifts his camera, seemingly preparing to take a covert photo of the women present.
This grotesque action by the transgender woman is profoundly disturbing and raises serious concerns about the safety and comfort of all biological women using public restrooms.

The current law in Massachusetts protects the rights of transgender people to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity.
“Acts of 2016 Chapter 134 gives transgender people the right to use restrooms or locker rooms consistent with their gender identities, and includes language to provide “legal action [against] any person whose assertion of a gender identity is for an improper purpose,” according to the state’s official website.
However, this incident starkly highlights a disturbing misuse of those rights. The shocking incident in Burlington has underscored the necessity of revisiting the design and management of public restroom facilities.
