Bathroom Hate


One October morning Crystal Andersen’s classmates show up at school to discover that despite “that figure, that boyfriend, that car,” Crystal can no longer claim a spotless reputation. In large letters in the main bathroom Crystal’s peers read that she committed an unspeakable act with the Texas Flag. In a suburban town where the girls see themselves as the square footage of their houses, the occupations of their parents and most importantly as Texans, questions surrounding tribe and identity are brought into focus. And then, there’s Homecoming to consider. Who has a date, who doesn’t and who’s going to end up drunk and crying on the bathroom floor? Bathroom Hate examines the destructive nature of isolation.
