The bathroom bill, which promotes the idea that schools need to provide trans students with bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity instead of their birth sex, is a very controversial topic, and with that comes some very different opinions. Mine, in fact, is rather complicated because I don’t understand what daily life is like for trans students. But before I state my opinion and back it up with psychological research I would like to break down the whole idea of transgender within the bill and how that relates to a scientific perspective. Okay, so in the proposed bill “gender identity” is defined as “an individual’s deeply felt internal and individual experience of gender, which may or may not correspond with the sex that the individual was born with.”
Some might argue for having transgender bathrooms in schools (to be), but there are some reasons why having transgender bathrooms should not be. Whether we begin with or end with religion it influences our take on this situation. Or maybe my argument about bullying and increased risk of being bullied in a bathroom might tug at you more. And for some of you it. might be all about the money, but here I will make 3 points supporting why transgender bathrooms should not be.
With Title IX, if a child feels uncomfortable about the other sex being in their restroom just because they identify as the opposite sex, their discomfort will be remarked as bigotry and will have to put up with it otherwise their school will lose funding. The comfort of some students is leading to the discomfort of a larger number of students and the government is saying “Get over it or you lose
Women and men have their own category of bathroom which is women 's bathroom or mens bathroom. Without a bathroom that separate from the transgender people then many women and men aren 't comfortable going to a public restroom at school and in public. People have this sense that they don 't know who’s coming through the bathroom door , it could be a guy for all they know. Having transgender going into a bathroom they believe they belong in is dangerous. For the fact that a women could be intoxicated in the bathroom but rather than a woman finding her there , it 's an intoxicated transgender going to the bathroom.
"This case presents the difficult issue of balancing the protection of students ' rights and that of personal privacy ... while ensuring that no student is unnecessarily marginalized while attending school," the judge wrote. The court order said that "Defendants are enjoined from enforcing the Guidelines against Plaintiffs and their respective schools, school boards, and other public, educationally-based institutions. Further, while this injunction remains in place, Defendants are enjoined from initiating, continuing, or concluding any investigation based on Defendant ' interpretation that the definition of sex includes gender identity in Title IX 's prohibition against discrimination on the basis of
For the past year society's standards of homosexuals has changed dramatically, last summer gay marriage has been legalized in all 50 states in the us. Now sympathizers of transgender are trying to advocate for bathroom changes for transgender, these people are demanding equal rights to bathrooms that they associate with. I personally find this outrageous and immoral. The concept is very ludicrous, why are we allowing people to choose their gender? It’s ridiculous, I personally believe or would like to think that all children were raised as one gender, and that their parents educated them on the simple concept of where to use the restrooms.
The law says yes to this because they don’t see a problem with people “pretending” to be the opposite gender. But the amount of discomfort that would be caused to woman if a male was to walk into a female bathroom and say, “It’s okay, I identify as a woman”. Would that be okay? Is that the type of world we want to live in? The ethics of religion should be taken into consideration as they bring quality points about acceptance of who you are.
(1) Share the 5W 's (who, what, where, when, why) This case involves Gavin Grimm, a male student at Gloucester High School who will begin his junior year this fall. He is 16 years old student at Gloucester High School located in Gloucester County, Virginia. A transgender male student sue his school board on discrimination ground because it banned him from the boys’ bathroom. He demanded the district allow her to use the boys’ restroom because she identifies as a male.
I believe that people should use the bathroom that they identify for because people are being treated unfairly. In addition, people won 't feel left out in any of their classes if they are being treated as the gender they are identified for. Body paragraph 1: I believe that transgender people should be treated evenly and should be allowed in restrooms they identify for. For
A trans man named Chaz Bono once said “When I realized I was transgender I was so afraid of what my transition would do to everyone else in my life and how they would react to it and would I be rejected” (Hernandez, 2014). This quote is a perfect way to show to the world how trans men and women feel due to institutions making them believe they should not be who they are. In this paper, we will go over how the textbook theorizes institutional discrimination and violence, how Saffin showcases discrimination and violence against trans people of color as both intersectional and institutional, and explain how institutional discrimination and violence are showcased in education. The textbook states that discrimination is “maintained through complex sets of social institutions that interacts with, structure and influences individuals beliefs and prejudices” (DeFrancisco & Palczewski, 2014, p. 133).
Regular kids get bullied because they might be over weight or they are different then everyone else, these kids receive help as long as they ask for it. Some gay students might not get help because their counselor is against gays and imagine how their lives are going to be with a president who doesn't really accept being different. The counter side of my argument is that the LGBTQ community shouldn't have their own rights. They might say that it would take to much money and time to invest in their happiness.
Strive for Gender Neutral Bathrooms The recent hot debate in our society focuses on the new controversial policy for public bathrooms to be identified as gender neutral. People who identify as a gender other than their biological sex are allowed to use the bathroom based on how they identify themselves. Elizabeth Vliet, is a current physician, has acquired specialized training from Johns Hopkins Sexual Medicine Consultation team, and provides her stance about the gender neutral bathroom policy will promote the increase of danger, especially for women. Vliet has treated numerous patients over the years regarding sex and gender issues.
Jason Dunlap was awarded “employee of the year” four times and has shown remarkable work ethic in his job. His sexual orientation and gender should not and did not impact the work he had accomplished for LaMark Elementary school during his ten years of employment. During this time, the school even recognized him for his outstanding work, regardless of the fact that he is transgender. Undergoing a sex change does not change Jason Dunlap’s work ethic, and therefore is in no way a justification for the intolerance Mr. Dunlap was faced with. This case is about the discriminatory actions of a bigoted school board and faculty.
Board of Education decision (Paulsen 36). Paulsen also says, “Homosexual rights advocates are rapidly pressing for more…they avowedly seek to run the traditional religious views off the field” (Paulsen 36). This topic is so controversial that this one decision will start a land slide of decisions which will put the Supreme Court in a position they would rather not be in. Anything with religious ties that disagrees with this decision will slowly but surely eradicated from society. But this should counter the 1st Amendment, but that amendment just states that citizens of the freedom to believe any religion but it does not say anything about exercising that belief.
The Stonewall Riots are said to mark the beginning of the modern LGBT rights movement, and it was largely initiated by transgender women of color. Over the next few decades, legislation would be enacted to aid the cause for equality. By 1977, trans athletes could play on the teams of their gender identities, and by 1993 anti-discrimination laws were extended to transpeople in Minnesota. In the 21st century alone, transpeople were getting invited to the White House, playing in college sports, and serving as judges, all without having to hide who they were (“Milestones in the American Transgender Movement”). Hardships are still all too common, unfortunately, but much progress has been made nonetheless, and the fight continues to this
