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.

Out of all eleven states, Texas racked up the most views "of the trans video category," at 1,641,050. They also come out on top for most searches specifically for trans porn, at 105,053. This shouldn't be a huge surprise, since Texas is an enormous state. But apparently Texas really loves to watch trans porn, and still hates to give LGBTQ+ people their rights.

The winning state for most uploads of trans porn is Arizona, with 3,359 trans videos uploaded, even though they flushed away the bathroom bill that would have allowed trans people to use the restroom that aligns with their gender identity. That is like having ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.

Other states, like Georgia, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, also have viewed trans porn hundreds of thousands of times. Of course, what someone is into sexually does not dictate what they believe socially, and there's certainly lots of people in each state that don't support the lawsuit, but the irony is definitely interesting with this one.
