I have been impacted by the behaviour of a trans-identified male in the changeroom at my local gym. This person has stood in front of the mirror and used their mobile phone to video-call another male whilst in the changeroom. As a result of the trans-identified male using the front-facing camera and standing in front of me whilst I was putting a bra on, the male they were talking to on the video call would have seen my bent over, half-naked body and chest in the background. I felt like I couldn't tell the trans-identified male person to stop that or get out, because I was worried about being accused of being transphobic and not being able to use the gym anymore. It just felt like there was zero consideration for women's bodies or our right to privacy.
