In 2015, a popular trend in the transgender community was #WeJustNeedToPee. Transgender people would post this hashtag along with a selfie taken in the bathroom of their birth gender to depict how uncomfortable and out-of-place they look. Several tweets can be found in this article from Advocate.

Many of the posts were also accompanied by #PlettPutMeHere, a reference to Canadian Senator Donald Plett, who added a harmful amendment to the Canadian Human Rights Act. The amendment prevented a recent transgender rights bill from applying to public restrooms.
