A Texas woman captured her harassment at the hands of an unidentified man for using the womens’ bathroom because of her apparel, the Dallas Observer reported.
The encounter took place while Jessica Rush was using the restroom at Baylor Medical Center in Frisco on Thursday. She told the Observer that she was wearing basketball shorts and a Texas Tech t-shirt when the man approached her.
“You didn’t look like a girl when I saw you enter,” the man tells Rush in the video, adding, “I thought you was –”
“A boy?” Rush replies.
“Yeah, it was kind of confusing. It’s difficult. You’re dressed like a man,” the man responds before walking away.
“That’s the shit we deal with,” can be heard saying as the man leaves.
Rush also filmed her second encounter with the man, inside the office lobby.
“I was confused when I see somebody entering the woman’s bathroom looking like a man,” the man says in the second video. “I was with my mom, so I wanted to make sure she was going to the right place.”
Rush said she has been harassed at both Hobby Lobby and 24 Hour Fitness in similar fashion because her hair is styled in a fauxhawk, leading people to assume she is not a woman.
“I look very much like a girl,” she said. “I’m not trying to transition, nothing like that.”
Rush’s encounter with the man near the bathroom can be seen below.

Trump’s Pentagon chief vows to cooperate with impeachment probe in apparent break with the president
US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday the Pentagon would cooperate with the congressional impeachment inquiry -- in an apparent break with President Donald Trump's policy to thwart the probe.
Esper said his department would try to comply with a subpoena from House Democrats seeking records relating to the withholding of US military aid to Ukraine.
"We will do everything we can to cooperate with the Congress," Esper said on CBS's "Face The Nation."
His reassurance came days after the White House announced it would not cooperate with the Democratic-led House of Representatives, calling its impeachment push illegitimate and unconstitutional.
GOP lawmaker sits in painful silence for four seconds after CNN’s Camerota schools him on impeachment
Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) sat in painful silence for a full four seconds after CNN's Alisyn Camerota schooled him on the nature of impeachment inquiries.
During an interview on Monday, Camerota asked Davis if he thought it was appropriate for a president to ask a foreign government to help him investigate his domestic political opponents.
Davis said it was not, but then pivoted to saying that House Democrats didn't have enough evidence at the moment to justify holding an impeachment inquiry based on their knowledge of just the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Kurds announce groundbreaking deal with Damascus as Turkey pushes deep into Syria
Syria's Kurds have announced a groundbreaking deal with Damascus on a Syrian troop deployment near the border with Turkey, as Ankara presses a deadly cross-border offensive that has sparked an international outcry.
The announcement on Sunday came as the United States ordered the withdrawal of almost its entire ground force in Syria.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the move to withdraw 1,000 US troops came after Washington learned that Turkey was pressing further into Syria than expected.
Turkey's relentless assault, which has seen air strikes, shelling and a ground incursion manned mainly by Syrian proxy fighters, has killed scores of civilians and fighters since its launch on Wednesday.
