A traveling one-man freak show is about to embark on a North Carolina tour. Shakina Nayfak, a self-proclaimed actress (waiter), wants to exhibit his mental illness in men’s bathrooms throughout the Old North State.
Nayfack is happily and successfully living her womanly life in New York but her birth certificate says “male”, so according to the new laws in North Carolina she iseffectively banned from female public restrooms in that state.
She’s so peeved, she’s mounting a rebel tour. And from the Capitol in Raleigh to the gas stations of Greensboro and cafes of Charlotte, she plans to tinkle in men’s toilets galore, tweeting and taking selfies as she goes.
“Hovering over a urinal is actually very tricky. I’m going to need a lot of Purell,” she said.
She could scuttle into a stall and hope no one notices, of course. But that’s not the point.
“They are trying to create a situation where trans people are supposed to be invisible. This is an absurd, panicked reaction from the ignorant, it’s a massive step backwards, so I felt it was my duty to go down there and take selfies in as many men’s bathrooms as possible,” she said.
Is this what Senator Ted Cruz meant by New York values? Welcome to the Age of the Mad Hatter.
