what if you can’t do anything about it? I would not like someone to walk in who's the opposite sex, but its not just anyone coming in this person is transgender and has the same permission as you to be in those rooms.

In the name of anti-bullying, Safe Schools are urged to let boys who believe in their mind they are a girl to use the girls’ toilets, change facilities and even sleeping quarters on school camps.
What people don't realize is, that a person difference should not hinder them in anyway but be accepted and celebrated. But often time it is easier said than done. Carla was bullied at her second school by a bunch of boys because she was developing in ways that the boys thought was funny and they ridiculed her for it. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” (Eleanor Roosevelt) which Carla gave without trying to stop the boys teasing her by telling the teachers or her parents so that the problem could be fixed. Not only is it difficult to learn a new language but to try to adjust to a new environment as well.
Sexist dress codes, shaming young girls for our country’s high teen pregnancy rate, sexual harassment, domestic violence are just a few ways how women are treated unjustly in our society. Dress Codes Dress codes in school systems are one of the largest one-sided and unjust issues in today’s society. Maureen Downey explains how “schools waste a lot of time enforcing dress codes, most of which focus on preventing young girls from distracting young boys” (2014. para 1). It is beyond unfair that girls are forbidden from wearing certain clothing articles to ensure that the immature boys next to them focus on their work instead of

She says that if her current behavior continues it will lead to a life of promiscuity.

In today’s times, it is a law that not only women, but everybody must be treated with respect without discrimination or racial injustices. While women face inequality at times, it is not normalized to treat women with disrespect. They are often misinterpreted and underestimated, but in the 1700s, women were expected to do one thing and only one thing: please the men. In The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, two
She defends herself by explaining how it is common to say the word and that “everybody at school” uses it. Scout tries to use this to her advantage to get out of school, showing she doesn’t necessarily care what the word means but also showing that people in her world use the word often. The people she's around most likely don’t understand the full definition of the word and obviously are just copying their parents who say the word often.

Most people will not commit murder in the U.S. because a female is not a virgin. In the Middle East not everyone is going to encourage education and working women.
