Mom’s viral response to transgender debate garners Facebook backlash, support
April 22, 2016 (LifeSiteNews)—A mother’s viral post about transgender bathrooms received support from across the world and caused her to be banned from posting on the social networking giant.
Kristi Merritt posted a photo of herself dressed as a football player holding a sign that read, “Does this make me Russell Wilson?” She also posted a photo of herself dressed as a pirate holding a sign asking, “Does this make me a pirate?”
“Then how can this make a man into a woman?” Merritt continued, posting a photo of a dress and purse.
“A man in women's clothes does not make him a woman. Men should not get to be in our bathrooms or lockers! #JustWantPrivacy #BeBold,” she wrote.
The post has been shared over 100,000 times and received over 50,000 “likes.”
Merritt reported that some had marked the post as having nudity in it, causing Facebook to ask her to remove it.
A family friend and Merritt’s husband then reported that Merritt was banned from posting on Facebook for a week.
ESPN recently fired sports analyst Curt Schilling for opposing the transgender bathroom agenda in a Facebook post.
