On the afternoon of May 10, 2016, Lauren Miller was at the Southside Hotel and Spa in the Miami neighborhood of Coral Gables.
She’d spent the day watching a show, taking selfies, and drinking some water.
She was feeling good, so she headed to the lobby to take a break.
Suddenly, a woman, wearing a skirt, emerged from the hotel’s back door and walked up to Miller, asking her to stop taking her selfies.
“Are you sure you don’t want to do this?” the woman said.
“I don’t think I want to,” Miller replied.
“You’re a woman,” the woman replied.
Miller tried to explain that she was wearing a bathing suit.
“No, you’re a man, you don and you should be wearing a swimsuit,” the stranger said.
When Miller told the stranger that she didn’t want a swimwear suit, the woman repeated, “You can wear one but it shouldn’t be a bathing one.”
“It’s a swim suit,” Miller said.
Miller asked the stranger to let her know if she could leave the lobby.
The woman replied, “No.
I’m not leaving.”
“Okay,” Miller thought to herself, “I’ve got to be careful.”
Miller, who is an experienced swimsuit-wearing woman, was startled to hear that the man had made her uncomfortable.
When she saw that she’d been asked to stop by the man who asked her to take selfies, Miller decided to make sure she’d do the right thing.
“That’s not right,” Miller told The Hill in an interview.
“If it was, I wouldn’t have left.
If you’re not comfortable, it’s OK to leave.
I wouldn, too.”
But that’s not what happened.
The next morning, Miller was awoken by a call from the Miami-Dade County Police Department.
The dispatcher had noticed that she had been walking with the man.
The Miami-Miami Police Department confirmed that the woman had asked Miller to take her pictures for her Twitter page, but Miller said that she never got the chance to.
“When I asked why, the dispatcher said it was because of my body language, and I was told I wasn’t allowed to do that,” Miller recalled.
The day before, Miller had been at a Miami restaurant, where she’d taken photos of a customer and shared them on Instagram.
The photographer asked Miller if she wanted a picture.
Miller replied, no, she just wanted a photo of her and her boyfriend.
The customer said, “Are we going to take pictures?”
Miller said she replied, I’m fine.
“Then she told me she was taking photos of Miller.
Miller said, okay, that’s fine, I don’t mind.
But after that, she went home.
Miller’s experience shows that women who are told they’re uncomfortable are at increased risk of harassment, discrimination, and physical assault, according to a new report from The Hill.
The report also highlights a troubling trend that has come to the forefront of the transgender community.
“There are many instances of trans women who report that their employers have targeted them, called them names, or referred to them as ‘faggots’ and ‘dudes,'” the report said. “
Women are the most likely group to be sexually assaulted,” said one of the authors, Dr. Rebecca Goss, the director of the National Center for Transgender Equality.
“There are many instances of trans women who report that their employers have targeted them, called them names, or referred to them as ‘faggots’ and ‘dudes,'” the report said.
The problem of transphobia in the trans community is “unprecedented,” said Goss.
“Transgender women are not alone in experiencing workplace discrimination, but they are disproportionately impacted by it.”
In addition to the incidents of trans discrimination, transgender people face heightened levels of harassment and violence in their homes and communities.
In 2015, the FBI released a report showing that nearly 10 percent of trans people reported experiencing physical violence from their family members, a rate nearly double the national average.
In addition, in 2015, a trans woman’s family was accused of using a homophobic slur against her in a letter.
In 2017, a transgender woman in Louisiana was shot and killed by her estranged boyfriend, who claimed she was a drug addict and who wanted to “kill [her] with a gun.”
According to Goss’s report, the vast majority of transgender people do not report such violence.
However, transgender individuals who do report violence are not treated equally.
In 2018, a survey of 1,000 transgender women in California found that only 25 percent of them were supported in their own personal experiences of violence by their trans peers.
According a 2016 study from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, women who reported experiencing violence were also twice as likely to report experiencing physical abuse and four times as likely a lack of access to gender-appropriate
