We're living in an age where our president doesn't want trans people serving in the military. So yes, calling out instances of day-to-day discrimination is vital. Which brings us to Lena Dunham, who witnessed two American Airlines employees having a transphobic conversation.
Not gonna call out the airline who delayed cuz shit happens BUT I did just overhear 2 @AmericanAir attendants having a transphobic talk.August 3, 2017
At this moment in history we should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity @AmericanAir. That was worst part of this night.August 3, 2017
American reached out to Lena and asked her to DM, which she did— revealing specifics of what she'd heard: two female employees describing trans kids as a "trend" and saying that they'd "never accept a trans child."

To quote Lena, "awareness starts at home, but jobs can set standards of practice."
