Mother Karen Wild says she was stopped from helping her cisgender son, Ellis Dunville – who has a seizure disorder, is on the autism spectrum and is nonverbal – go to the bathroom by a male security guard at the Wichita Public Library.

Despite telling the guard she had been using the women’s public bathroom to help assist her son for years, she was told by a member of staff that the library has policies relating to restrooms that prevented Dunville from entering.

She told the Topeka Capital-Journal that she has made the trip to the library every week for years as a way to meet with her own mum, who helps care for her son.

“There isn’t anything I can think of that has changed except that they heard about that law and decided they needed to be emboldened by it somehow,” she said. “I can’t explain it any other way.”

While Wild mentioned that there was no direct reference to SB180 during the incident, a spokesperson said there had been a “slight uptick” in unsafe activities in Wichita Public Library.
