Finally the Obama administration is stepping in and issuing an order to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their identity. This comes after the highly charged debate over the transgender rights in in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue.
It is time that the Obama administration chimes and puts a top to the discrimination that the transgender community has been facing. Of course this is going to put all the Republicans in a panty twist because how dare the administration prevent discrimination and possible suicides and deaths by imposing its values on communities across the country. “This represents the latest example of the Obama administration using a combination of policies, lawsuits and public statements to change the civil rights landscape for gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people. After supporting the rights of gay people to marry, allowing them to serve openly in the military and prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating against them, the administration is wading into the battle over bathrooms and siding with transgender people.”
This issue is seriously the most ridiculous thing in our society today. The fact that now transgender people have to fight for the rights to be themselves and now have to face the discrimination and hurt from society is just disgusting. Why can’t we as a whole society mind our own business, does someone who is a male and now identifies as a female using a public women’s bathroom affecting you as a person or what you are doing?? and if so how? Transgender people have been using the bathroom of their choice and no one said anything about it until now, and now it’s an every day issue. The biggest issue I have is why it bothers people so much? What are you doing in a public bathroom that would affect another human being using a closed stall in the bathroom. And to those people who are so concerned that a male is going to pretend to be a female to go in there and rape someone is like saying I am not going to to outside in Miami because I might be robbed by a black or latin or asian person. That is how dumb people sound when they have these debates on Facebook. I am glad that the administration stepped in to prevent closed-minded people from continuing to bully, harass, and discriminate people just because they do not fit the mold that you think should be. #rightsforall
