A video shot on the campus of Western Carolina University last week shows a female student challenging a transgender woman’s right to use a girls’ bathroom, Fox News Digital reported.

The student who filmed the video, Payton McNabb, had previously sustained mental and physical injuries as a high school volleyball player when a transgender opponent spiked a ball in her face, according to Fox News Digital.

The video uploaded to Twitter last week appears to show McNabb approaching the transgender woman and asking, “Why are you in the girls’ bathroom?” (RELATED: Injured Volleyball Player Takes Stand Against Transgender Athletes On Women’s Teams After Suffering Concussion)

The unidentified individual responds, “I’m a trans girl.” McNabb replies, “But you’re not a girl.”

“Interesting, I’ve never had this before. I don’t know what to say, I’m sorry you feel that way,” the transgender woman says.

“I pay a lot of money to be safe in the bathroom,” McNabb tells the individual, who responds, “Me, too.”

McNabb then can be heard asking the person, “Do you think that’s ok?”

The transgender woman then appears to walk past McNabb and out of the bathroom without responding to the question.

May Mailman, McNabb’s lawyer and the director of the Independent Women’s Law Center, said, “No matter what men are wearing or how they feel internally, schools can’t forget about their obligation to women.”

A spokesperson for WCU told Fox News Digital, “WCU is committed to upholding its principles and ensuring that all students have equal access to education and opportunities. Violations of any university policies or state and federal laws will be addressed by appropriate campus officials.”

McNabb, who suffered a concussion and neck injury after a transgender volleyball player spiked a ball into her face in 2022, posted on Twitter, “Currently, I’m facing reports to the school for alleged ‘transphobia,’ alongside attempts to tear down my sorority, despite it having nothing to do with it.”

Although North Carolina passed a bill in 2016 requiring citizens to use bathrooms corresponding to their biological sex, several portions of the bill were repealed a year later, Fox News Digital reported.

The federal Departments of Education and Justice currently require all public universities receiving federal funds to recognize a student’s gender identity as their sex, according to the outlet.
