A trans-identified male in Portland, Oregon was placed under arrest after reportedly defecating in a teen girl’s vehicle in retaliation for “transphobia.” Vivian Ginger-Rain Shemansky, 44, is facing four counts including criminal mischief in the first degree.
The incident, which occurred on August 27, began after the 17-year-old victim parked near Shemansky’s tent while on a shopping trip. From his tent, Shemansky threw a stick at the girl and called her “transphobic.”
According to a now-deleted GoFundMe campaign for the victim set up by her mother, the teen “was a little confused on what just happened, so she picked up her pace” and continued walking to her destination, a nearby pizza shop she had been to before.
Upon leaving the restaurant 10-15 minutes later, the girl could see from a distance that her front windshield had been shattered. She didn’t approach her car at first, immediately calling 911 from the top of the street before ringing her mother.
“By the time I got there, the full picture of the incident had been exposed,” the girl’s mother wrote in the GoFundMe campaign. “Her car was smashed at all four sides. Every piece of glass was shattered. There was human waste through out the entire car. The police were there and the suspect was cuffed and being arrested.”
According to reports, the interior of the 2005 Ford Escape was “smeared all over with feces and urine,” and the vehicle had to be towed as it was deemed a “biohazard.”
Upon being questioned by Police, Shemansky reportedly told officers that the girl had been “transphobic.”
Shemansky was booked as a “female” at the Multnomah County Jail on four counts including criminal mischief in the first degree, unauthorized use of a vehicle, criminal mischief in the second degree, and disorderly conduct in the second degree.
But despite also having existing outstanding warrants, Shemansky was released the same day he was booked. A hearing scheduled for the next day resulted in a failure to appear, and the case is still logged as open in the Oregon Judicial Department’s system.
On his social media, Shemansky’s speaks extensively of “transphobia” and “misgendering,” and appears to take particular exception to being labeled a homosexual.
In one Instagram post from July of 2020, Shemansky wrote that “gender and sex are two different things.” In January of that year, he also uploaded a photo of a Multnomah County name and sex change form he had filled out, as well as a photo of his stash of estrogen hormones.
