Trailblazing trans swimmer Schuyler Bailar shuts down attacks on his genitals in powerful post
The former Harvard swimmer is standing up for his body
By Alex Reimer
They are insults transgender people hear all of time, and Schuyler Bailar is tired of them.
In a powerful Instagram post, the trailblazing trans swimmer highlights an array of nasty comments he’s received over the years about his
body and genitalia. In particular, Bailar calls out cisgender men who are obsessed with what’s in his pants.
“It’s very sad to me that so many men have no other way to define their manhood than with their penis — how devastating and fear-filling
that must feel to believe that if they were to get in an accident and lose their penis, they would also lose their manhood,” he writes.
As of press time, the post has more than 23,000 “likes.” Numerous trans individuals, and parents of trans kids, thanked Bailar in the
comments for speaking out.
