Here I am using a women's restroom in North Carolina that I'm technically barred from being in. 
They say I'm a pervert.
They say I'm a man dressed as a woman.
They say I'm a threat to their children.
They say I'm confused.
They say I'm dangerous.
And they say accepting me as the person I have fought my life to be seen as reflects the downfall of a once great nation.

I'm just a person. We are all just people. Trying to pee in peace. Trying to live our lives as fully and authentically as possible. Barring me from this restroom doesn't help anyone. And allowing me to continue to use this bathroom - just without fear of discrimination and harassment - doesn't hurt anyone. 
Stop this. We are good people. #repealhb2

  • miss_arrietaThis is not about you being a perv or dangerous, maybe you are not , but now a perv can just change his clothes and get in and perv on women! I comply disagree with shared bathrooms and like i said is got nothing to do with trans, its got to do with pervs that will take advantage !
  • leo_murphYou're a fucking disgrace to humanity
  • j.nav31Go to the mens bathroom
  • jessica.bakasHow can people say simply trying to live life at the fullest and happiest is a "disgrace" or "disgusting"? Sarah I have so much respect and love for you and how you choose to stand up for yourself and the LGBT community because all of us are simply just people.❤
  • josh_scarborough_music@leo_murph you're a fucking disgrace to humanity
  • josh_scarborough_musicI support you Sarah. You are beautiful and you are strong. Don't let jerks like this leo kid throw you around. I'm sure the only reason he's saying this is because he knows you're Trans. If he met you in public, I bet he wouldn't notice a difference. You go girl. Stay strong (from a fellow North Carolinian who will be here if you ever need help)

  • gabriola_05From Ecuador in South America, Your history has travel around the world, you aren't just a women or a men, You're a human, with rights and responsabilities, a kind, beautiful human. Why all the hate?. She is a Girl full of courage, a role model for me. Congrats
  • angelae8755I am a Conservative Trump supporter who believes that this should have been left alone. Transgenders have likely been using the restroom of their choice, with none of us being the wiser. Now that they've turned it into such a big stink, NOW crazy people are going into restrooms bothering people. Yeah, it should have been left alone. Someone going into a restroom, using it (and washing their hands) and then leaving is not bothering ANYONE. Little children should be accompanied by an adult. No excuse for child neglect and "bathroom rules" don't change that.
  • stratosathensDear @sarahemcbride: congratulations for your courage. I followed your instagram account because of this photo here. Don't allow few crazy fascists tell you who you are and how you define yourself. All the best for 2017!
  • sabine_d.mHi! I found this post from the Times article, "Why LGBT Advocates Say Bathroom 'Predators' Argument Is a Red Herring." I'm using it as a source on my persuasive essay on transgender bathroom rights and I wanted to say that with all that's going on right now, it's really nice to see a beautiful woman who is standing up against the hate. You are absolutely as much of a woman as any other woman, perhaps even more of one since you have had to fight to be who you are. Stay strong. <3
