Vice's "women's experiences" website, Broadly, teamed up with a lowercase v vice site—xHamster—to calculate how many times trans videos were searched, watched, and uploaded in each of the 11 states that are suing the Obama administration for their trans bathroom directive. It turns out, millions of people in those eleven states really do like trans people.

Trans issues have been at the forefront of the news (and probably your Facebook feed) lately, as the nation struggles to agree on bathroom bills, gender identity, and trans rights. After the Obama administration issued a non-biding declaration telling schools to let students use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity, the following states filed suit against the Obama administration: Texas, Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. 

Ironically, those same eleven states also happen to really love watching porn with trans people in it. Although Broadly didn't provide a comparison to the other states which aren't suing Obama over his transgender rights directive, there's still certainly something interesting about the results of the study.
