A trans-identified male issued a threatening warning on TikTok and encouraged the trans community to take up arms and engage in deadly acts of violence if someone were to prevent them from using the women’s restroom. User @tara_vs_tw on TikTok
“I dare you to try and stop me from using the women’s bathroom. It will be the last mistake you ever make,” the trans-identified male said on the social media app under the username tara vs tw.
The original video was removed from TikTok after it was reported for going against community guidelines.
In retaliation, tara v tw made a follow-up video saying more content would be posted to YouTube in order to “stand up” for the transgender community. Tara vs tw then vowed to “tackle, defeat, and shred” all of the Christians that “cherry pick bible verses” to “justify their bigotry,” according to the video
The video was restored by TikTok, and in response to that, tara vs tw posted a video to the sound of a baby crying, pointing out that it was restored.
The original video garnered significant backlash across social media from conservative commentators and pundits.
Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, said “This biological man tells trans people to ‘arm up’ and issues a violent threat to anyone who tries to block him from the women’s restroom: ‘I dare you to try and stop me going into a women’s bathroom. It will be the last mistake you ever make.’
“Don’t want your 7 year old daughter in the bathroom with this guy? He’ll end your life,” another Twitter-user wrote.

He'll end your life.
Another user responded saying, “Another video floating around where this guy responds to a father saying if anyone stops him he will kill them. This this guy needs to be taken serious.”

The threats of violence come after the tragic mass shooting at Nashville Covenant Christian School in March, where suspect Audrey Hale, a trans woman, shot and killed three children and three adults in a hate crime attack against children.
