Gender identity is defined as a personal conception of oneself as male, female, both, or neither. In 2014, President Obama signed an executive order barring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity among federal contractors. The order covered employers who perform federal work and protected an estimated 20 percent of American workers. Opponents included religious groups, who argued that the order would prevent them from receiving federal money or contracts if they could not meet the new guidelines because of their beliefs. Proponents argue that the order was necessary to protect millions of LGBT people whose rights were threatened after the Supreme Court ruled in the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores case. In that ruling, the court said that family-run corporations with religious objections could be exempted from providing employees with insurance coverage for contraception.
If you have a man's urinary system use the men's room. If you have a female's urinary system use the woman's room. Shouldn't matter about the "identification".
You are clearly very uneducated. Even if a trans man didn't fully "look like a man" it could give him really bad dysphoria.
also, as a non-binary person, literally no one has been able to find out my assigned sex at birth. how is anyone supposed to tell me what bathroom to use? probably because gender is a social construct and has nothing to do with what's in your pants. just because I have a certain set of chromosomes doesn't mean I can't use the family restroom and just because a trans woman may have xy chromosomes, doesn't mean she shouldn't use the women's restroom
The segregation of bathrooms on the basis of gender or sex is not due to men and women having separate urinary systems. There are toilets in both bathrooms. Men and women both have bladders and a urethra. Some men don't have penises, and I'm not just talking about trans men. The segregation exists for social reasons. Forcing a hairy, muscular, transgender man to enter a woman's restroom against his will is an example of foolish government overreach.
yes, and the government should do more to protect minorities from discrimination. saying that someone's gender identity or sexuality is against your religious beliefs is ridiculous. It does not force you to be aother gender who love your own sex. people are just homophobic and do not want people to be who they want to be.
No, Gender identity is not real and transexualism is a disease,
Teenagers on social media should be supervised....these genders are all a result of kids having a plenty of free time. There are only 2 genders.
Gender and sex are not the same thing. This issue is not well enough understood for government to act on it. Gender is psychological, sex is biological, gender shouldn't be treated like sex and sex shouldn't be treated like gender.
"Gender" is defined by the parts between your legs. Sexual Orientation and "feeling" like a different gender or entity is different. People shouldn't be discriminated against for anything that isn't hurting others or causing issues, however, the current state of people claiming different gender "feelings" is out of hand.
Yes, but must be on a 504 if using public facilities at a school
I don't think people should need a 504 as a precondition to use the correct restroom. The segregation exists for social reasons. Forcing a hairy, muscular, transgender man to enter a woman's restroom against his will is an example of foolish government overreach.
I side with science. You know. The thing that decides everything.
good because scientist say that sex is what is determined at birth and gender identity/gender expression is a social construct. I, too, am a science believer. I don't believe in god, I believe vaccines work, and I believe trans women are women!
No. We don't need to encourage the victim mentality and the sense of entitlement that goes with it. Being judged on the content of your character is most important. If you want to be a woman go ahead, leave the government out of it in general.
I sexually Identify as a steel beam. Ever since 9/11 I dreamed of getting drawn closer and closer to my melting point by jet fuel under the Twin Tower letting them drop on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a steel beam is Impossible and I’m *** retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install steel beams and jet fuel on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Steel Beam” and respect my right to not melt by jet fuel and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a "steeliphobe" and need to check your metallic privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.
No discrimination should be tolerated, but prejudices/preferences exist for culture and like mindedness, there is no removing it, unless everyone begins thinking alike...which is group think and not good, diversity is best.
We have all seen each others "Junk", so to me..Naked is naked, and women's public rest rooms are nasty, so if they want to come into a men's room, not an issue with me
I think that they should be because it is just like if someone had a different skin color. Someone who doesn't for sure know if they want to be male or female should not have different rights or be treated differently because they have a different preference than me. We should all be treated equally.
