Gender Neutral Bathrooms Closed in new high school

This makes me angry 😦

Protecting our rights

East Providence RI had built a brand new high school with gender neutral bathrooms. Today there was an announcement that they are now closing the gender neutral bathrooms without explaining why.

These bathrooms offer protection to students who may be in fear of using these bathrooms for whatever reason. This is a disgrace to spend so much money on building these bathrooms for protection of students then take it away…

Students who are disabled or do not fit into the biological gender identity, students who have been bullied and or abused should be allowed in a bathroom without bullies.

Ohio legislature to see bills critics say are anti-transgender

The quest for trans rights has exposed a deep divide in the UK. Scotland may show a way forward

In a bid to be in step with some European countries, Scotland’s government wants to ease the current pathway, criticized as too expensive and intrusive. The simplified self-declaratory system would shed away the panel and the medical reports. And where it has been a requirement for applicants to prove having lived in accordance with one’s gender identity for 24 months, the new system would require just three months. It would also reduce the minimum age of recognition to 16, from 18.
The move has reinvigorated the quest for more rights for the structurally disenfranchised community, blighted by high rates of discrimination, harassment, suicide, and who report facing difficulty obtaining gender-affirming healthcare in the UK.
