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. Having separate bathroom can be a reassurance to people that they can be safe in public and can trust people coming into the bathroom.
“We need ethics to help us decide what to do in situations not covered by laws: for example, areas beyond the reach of law, such as personal relationships, but also in situations, such as biotechnology or the internet, that are so new that the legal system has yet to catch up” (Goldburg, 2009).
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.
Loffreda quotes Walt Bolden, a friend of Matt, who refused to lose a friend in vein and called upon legislature’s to consider the threat that now seemed so apparent: “Boulden [...] legislature’s failure to pass a hate crimes bill: he told reporters that “they said nothing like that happens in Wyoming because someone is gay, but we’ve always known someone would have to get killed or beaten before they finally listened. I just can’t believe it happened to someone I care about.’” (371) The problem with society isn’t the overwhelming number of loathe toward one another, but the lack of consideration and empathy. Loffreda’s essay not only draws awareness to the LGBT community, but also emphasizes the amount of support they are gaining. Everdeen Mason, author of “The dramatic rise in state efforts to limit LGBT rights,” draws to light that although the LGBT community have gained support they are still facing discrimination, “ While the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community has become more visible [...] state lawmakers have increased attempts to pass legislation that could restrict civil rights for LGBT people.
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
Canadians take pride in their health care system; however, most Canadians are unaware of the disparities that exist for transgender persons within health care. Being ridiculed, denied care, or treated unjustly because of a self-identification as transgender goes against the core values of the nursing profession (Canadian Nurses Association, 2009); despite this, ten percent of transgender participants in the Ontario Trans PULSE survey reported that they had experienced these demonstrations of prejudice when accessing emergency room services. This statistic may be lower than the reality due to transgender persons frequently avoiding the health care system (Bauer & Scheim, 2015). According to the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) Code of Ethics (2009) nursing staff are expected to provide, “safe, compassionate, competent, and ethical care” (p. 3); however, due to lack of policies and lack of education nursing staff and physicians are detrimentally adding to the stressors of transgender life.
Transgender students are denied the right to feel comfortable and included while others enjoy that right. There may be many more students that enjoy this right than are denied it, but under the 14 amendment, the government cannot “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws,” not even the minority. All students
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.
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.
For years the LGBTQ community has, and continues to work hard to establish their presence in society. In the past few years, states supporting marriage equality increased and rights such as military benefits, joint tax filing, etc; were also implemented. Today the LGBTQ community only continues to grow and make progress. However, not all minorities in this community are making the same progress as others. Those who identify as bisexual have reported heightened feelings of oppression, Stigmatized, and isolation even from within their own LGBTQ community.
The LGBTQ community is one that faces an ongoing storm of stereotyping and stigmas and the media is no relief from it. One major factor in this is the common trope of the violent and aggressive transgender woman, which is often shown through
In 2015, the Obergefell v. Hodges case ended the “state bans on same-sex marriage”, therefore legalizing same-sex marriage (Important Supreme Court Cases). Now, “same-sex couples can now receive the benefits...of marriage that were largely exclusive to heterosexual couples” (Koch). The ruling has led to the modern fight for gay civil rights. Exposure to the LGBTQ+ community, the southern “Bathroom Bills”, and other fights for transgender rights, and the press for more LGBTQ+ representation in the media has erupted from this case. Both rulings had very big impacts on their respective communities.
In the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson wrote “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men a created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuits of Happiness” (Jefferson). Everyone has the same rights as others, but the problem in this century is the lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender community (LGBT) does not have the equal rights as “straight” citizens do. Reasons why they may not have these equal rights is because of the government may be embarrassed to give these people their rights to be equal cause the government will lose the respect and strength of the other countries and theirs. Along with most the world’s population believes

Suppose that a man is sitting in a McDonalds and his 8-year-old daughter needs to use the restroom. Assuming that she can handle herself he lets her go, as she is walking to the restroom a 40 something year old potbellied man in a pink dress also starts walking towards the female restroom. Now if he gets up to stop this man he could be fined and in certain instances be arrested. Because of Title IX (9), if someone ‘identifies’ as a certain gender they can use the restroom that they identify as. This has risen major concerns around the country.
