I wasn’t until recently that transgender people have gotten some of their own rights established. Though they are still harshly discriminated against and harassed. Transgender people have a statistically history of being abused and killed, with an all around rough lifestyle. They can improve their own lives by protesting for their rights and even changing their bodies to better represent how they feel on the inside. Things like HB2 in North Carolina does nothing but hurt the rights of these individuals.
All over the world, Transgender and others under the LGBTQ umbrella for gender identity encounter a large amount of controversy. I agree with this statement because of the inequality between transgendered individuals and cisgendered individuals. Bullying is a huge problem when it comes to Gender Identity; schools, workplaces and even public areas aren’t safe for queer people anymore due to the distaste that some people feel towards these individuals. In some states, schools and workplaces are banning bathrooms for these individuals and are forcing them to use the appropriate bathroom, or the bathroom of their birth gender. The military used to be a sanctuary for transgendered individuals because gender doesn’t necessarily matter in the military
A person appearance do not describe what they feel and really are in the inside letting transgender use the gender restroom they were born to use make them no less than a man or a woman because that is who they were born to be. A man can be dress as a woman but inside he is still a man so he should be able to use the restroom to what he is. Appearance is a big role in society today but everyone is different so the difference in people has to be seen so that there is no discrimination. Everyone have their own flaws and no flaw is greater than the other one so accepting people
Transgender faced scrutiny for wanting the right to do something as simple as serve in the armed forces. In the same instance, heterosexual people serve in the armed forces and take the right to serve for granted. Even though people that consider themselves transgender faced discrimination, they still chose to fight for the right to risk their lives for their country. Many transgender choose to serve in the armed forces to show people that they are worthy of the same rights as a heterosexual individual; therefore, they are trying to earn the status as being equal in this part of our society as well as the rest of society. They want to give back to this country, also. Through education and the change of policies, this has become a goal
Conclusion There has been an increase in transgender representation in popular culture. Representation of the gender binary can be seen in the media, advertising and television, yet it seems to further escalate the notions of gender identity being down to sex and that a male or female must adopt the gender characteristics associated with their gender, either “masculinity” or “femininity”. There is a lack of non-binary gender representation which further marginalises certain groups such as women and those who are LGBTQ.
Mia Gutierrez Persuasive Essay “With using the staff bathroom, I felt like I was being segregated off, like, ‘Here are the boys, here are the girls, this is me’”” (Miller). Being in the 21st century, there are a lot of things we have seen in the public eye. One item is the transgender youth community. Someone who is transgender or “trans” means, “Denoting or relating to a person whose self-identity does not confirm unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender” (Google). Some schools are against letting transgender students use their sexual identity’s facilities (locker rooms/bathrooms), doing this to students in publically funded schools is discrimination and schools should pay a price.
This paper will take a look at the way society approaches transgender bathroom rights, and propose a solution to the argument. It addresses any concerns raised by the proposal, and provides sound and compelling arguments as to why all public spaces should contain a unisex bathroom for any gender to use. Keywords: gender, transgender, bathroom, unisex When a transgender or non-binary person goes to use the bathroom, they are forced to face an impossible choice. Do they enter the women’s bathroom, or the men’s?
I especially sensed the author's condemnation of transgender children when used the words “it’s a criminal offense” to describe the action of switching gender in his article. I felt Shaw’s statement was biased because the beliefs he shared were unfairly prejudiced
These people should not be able to use a bathroom that they identify as, however they should use the bathroom that they were born as. Emma Green the author of Half of Americans Don’t Think Transgender People Should Be Able to Pick Their Bathroom, states in her article that “Americans are still divided on transgender rights and identity. In a new study from Pew Research Center, 46 percent of respondents said transgender people should be required, presumably by law, to “use the public restrooms of the gender they were born into.” Fifty-one percent of those surveyed said the opposite—that transgender people should be allowed to use the restroom of their choice.”
A law that prohibits discrimination of transgender people and establishes a system of unisex restrooms would give transgender people a basis for discrimination claims, prevent the hardships transgender people face in gendered restrooms, and allow families to use the same restroom. Some people may argue that this law would be harmful because unisex restrooms are expensive and create an environment in which there are sexual predators that try to harm others. However, legislators and public places can easily address these concerns by limiting the size of unisex restrooms and providing extra security measures. As long as there is a solution to these concerns, this anti-discriminatory law can fill the gap where courts often deny a transgender person’s claims of discrimination.
Many people think the battle for LGBTQA+ rights in the United States ends with our achievement of marriage equality. Unfortunately, it does not end there. In an article written by Jody L. Herman, Christy Mallory, and Bianca D.M. Wilson in March 2016, they state,”Nearly 300,000 transgender youth and adults may be negatively impacted by legislation introduced in 15 states. These bills would limit access to single-sex restrooms and locker rooms at schools and in public places; limit protections based on gender identity; permit individuals and businesses to discriminate against transgender people based on religious and moral beliefs; and limit the ability to change certain vital records documents, such as birth certificates, or enforce the use
Greta Christina’s observation and opinion is clearly stated in her essay, “Trans People and Basic Human Rights.” Christina addresses one of the biggest topics that is greatly discussed about today, cisgender people and their botheration with transgender people. Her thesis, why do cisgender people care, is straightforward in that she starts off by agreeing with the opposing side and going to explain why cisgender people care and how they should not care. Although Christina’s point of view is skewed toward her opinion, she clearly explains the process she goes through when accepting transgender people, how she cannot be the voice of transgender for she is not one herself, and later goes into statistics that support her point. However, her argument is invalid because of the fact that she herself is not transgender (as she states) and her attempts at bringing down the opposing argument are weak.
Others believe that Transgenders should not be granted fundamental rights for various reasons; one of which being that it is morally incorrect and clashes with religious beliefs. Those who follow religious standards state that identifying as a transgender man or woman is an act that shall be frowned upon. God has placed humans in their correct gender and so it is wrong to label yourself as the other. If you identify as a transgender you may have a mental illness. If Transgenders were to be granted fundamental laws it would cause conflict against the majority of citizens around the world who practice religion, which is about 84 percent.
Today, transgenders have more rights than they did in 1980s. In 80s there weren't many transgenders, the technology wasn't as advanced so they were just transgenders mentally. Today, now that our technology and research is updated transgenders can take steps in becoming the person they want to be. Now that there are more transgenders than before is
