Transgender Person Arrested Over Restroom

`A phone repair worker who is in transition from male to female said Tuesday that she was arrested three times by transit police in the last six months for using the women’s restroom at Grand Central Terminal.

Helena Stone, 70, said an officer called her “a freak, a weirdo and the ugliest woman in the world” and warned her, “If I ever see you in the women’s bathroom, I’m going to arrest you.”

“I said, ‘That’s the only bathroom I use,'” Stone said at a rally and news conference. “‘That’s who I am.'”‘
