This cartoon was originally a digital doodle I did in 2013 in response to bathroom discrimination legislation proposed in Arizona. Eventually I redrew it for publication in Trans Bodies, Trans Selves. I have now made it more applicable nationwide in response to anti-LGBTQ legislation passed in North Carolina.
I am a cisgendered straight white dude, but so what? This shit affects friends and family who identify as trans. This affects human beings whose lives are harassed and abused by hateful people with no clue what they are talking about. It pisses me off. I respond with mockery. But in the end I’m pretty angry about this shit.
