The Fight for Transgender Rights

BY WALTER CANADY III

Transgender protection across America has been a big deal within the last five years. The most recent controversy swirling about the media involves transgender kids choosing of their bathroom in public schools. The Trump administration has rescinded or revoked that protection for transgenders in public schools.

“This is a mean-spirited attack on hundreds of thousands of students who simply want to be their true selves and be treated with dignity while attending school,” said Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality.

The real question is that by letting people choose their bathroom based on their preference is that we live in a society where that freedom could become a threat to those that are actually that gender. The fact is that we have to try to commit to trying to still giving the LGBTQ community their constitutional right in pursuit of their happiness while also not trying to neglect anyone else’s rights.

Many people even outside the LGBT community felt insulted by the idea of the White House deciding which bathroom people can and can’t use. Transgender rights supporters demonstrated in front of the White House late on Feb. 22, according to  washingtonpost.com.

I think that the problem with this particular issue is that the line is so thin between right and wrong. I think that for those who have went to the bathroom in their original gender should continue to do so. I think that their has to be a line drawn and for some people that is a violation to see the opposite sex, regardless of the preference of sex in the bathroom or locker. As far as this problem I don’t think it is anywhere near over because as shown in history the LGBTQ community is very persistent on their dispositions. Will this be another group of domestic hatred against President Trump or will he some how be able to create a compromise to remain neutral? If things continue to operate the same way it’s likely the former will hold true.
