Potty Talk: Looks Like Bathrooms Haven't Been So T-Friendly This Month...

A transwoman was "banned for life" from the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas this week after using the women's restroom. Security guards issued her a trespass warning and explained that "if she ever stepped into the hotel again, she would be immediately arrested."

You can read the hotel's apology here.

Sure, it's nice that somebody said "sorry," but after the recent attack of another transwoman in a McDonald's bathroom in Baltimore, I'm beginning to notice an unfortunate trend.
