A Texas woman was shocked and scared when she was followed into a hospital bathroom by a man who didn’t believe she was actually a woman.

Jessica Rush recorded the man following her Thursday at Baylor Medical Center, where she was being treated for an arm injury. Rush was wearing a T-shirt and basketball shorts. She wears her hair in a Mohawk style.

“It scared me at first,” Rush told KXAS. “My first thought was I’m about to be attacked because I am a 5-foot-3 [inch tall] female.”

Rush caught their exchange on her phone.

The man was apparently thrown off by Rush’s clothing and hairstyle, thinking she was a man.

Rush was upset by the ordeal.

“I understand one thing if you’re a cop of the Dallas Police Department but some random guy coming in, I think is absolutely absurd and inappropriate,” she added.

The man later told Rush that his mother was in the bathroom and he was concerned that a man was entering the same facility. The man said Rush’s clothing confused him.

The restroom incident comes as transgender bathroom use has become a hot political topic. North Carolina recently passed a law requiring people use bathrooms that correspond to their birth gender.
