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.
The main focus of this journal article is how transgender prisoners are mentally and physically denied the right to pass as women in a prison meant solely for men. Jenness and Fenstermaker (2014) state that these transgender inmates have to be definite in their femininity so as to receive a form of ‘recognition’ and ‘belonging’ of their chosen gender, and even then it is difficult as they are in a men’s prison and are therefore understood to be as ‘male’. This immediately serves as a Human Right’s concern, as even prisoners have the right and privilege to be whomsoever they want to be. Jenness and Fenstermaker (2014) argue that although every human possess that right, transgender prisoners being sexually assaulted is 13 times more likely than
My placement on the cultural competence continuum in regards to this topic is currently at cultural blindness. By no means am I discriminatory towards transgender individuals, however, I feel strongly about the safety of all students who would be put in potentially dangerous situations in transgender restrooms. Furthermore, my worries about safety include that of transgender students as well. There will certainly be instances of bullying, either verbally or physically. For example, a group of students ambushing a transgender student in the restroom to try to maintain photos of him or her.
In the article about the treatment of transgender jail inmates in San Francisco, the San Francisco jail is trying to make a policy that houses female and male transgender inmates based on their gender identity, even if they had gender reassignment surgery. If a male identifies as a female but still
There has been a number of court cases and incidents dealing with this topic. An important case dealing with this something similar to this case study took place in 2011. Glen Vs. Brumby. A claim was brought against the Georgia general assembly by a transgender female who was terminated based on her sex change.
Over the weekend, my family and I went to a restaurant in downtown Cincinnati called The Senate. A few months ago they had gotten a great deal of backlash when they promoted a taco/sausage menu item they named the Bruce Jenner 2.0. Being back at the restaurant brought up a discussion of it which led to a debate from my mother on trans bodies. She does not discriminate against trans people but believes that there is no trans identity, you either identify as male or female and whichever you choose is your choice but if you switch, you should do so to the full extent involving surgery.
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.
Because of their relative invisibility in public life, many people have a poor grasp on what being transgender really is. To be fair, this is a complicated issue, encompassing its own subsection of the LGBT+ community with its own unique groups. To put it simply, a transgender person is somebody who identifies as a gender other than the one written on their birth certificate. This often means identifying as the opposite sex, but some transgender people live in between the gender binary or outside it altogether. Typically, transgender people live express their identity in different ways: dressing as their preferred gender, going through hormone therapy to alter their bodies, undergoing sex reassignment surgery to change their genitals, or a
the right to use the restroom he identifies with would be in violation of Title IX. Title IX bans the discrimination on the basis of sex in schools. Transgender would be included as a sex even though it isn’t traditional. The school cannot discriminate against G.G. for being an untraditional or nonconforming sex. This means Title IX prevents the school from denying G.G. the ability to use the restroom he identifies with since other students are allowed to use the restroom consistent with their identified gender (for example how as female uses the girls restroom which she identifies with).
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
Counseling does have its benefits, but some individuals are not truly happy until they have surgery to change into the gender in which the person relates fully. Fear of not being accepted by socially could cause depression and suicidal attempts or
Trans-gender – “(This is) an umbrella term, like trans for individuals who blur the lines of traditional gender expression…. (Trans-genders) may or may not choose to change physical characteristics of their bodies or legally change their sex” (Meyer, 2010). It is a term for a person who has changed his/her original sexuality, but did not undergo medical treatments or
