I am, myself, transgender. My life is in danger in the US. I need protection.

@98XMT6F from California agreed…4mos

Sometimes people are have prejudices about race, sex, gender, and sexuality, and they even should be allowed to say what they believe. However, people must only be judged (for hiring, schools, law, etc.) on their merits, so we have laws to prevent race, sex, gender, and sexuality from being used in these cases. People also have prejudices about gender identity, and it too should not be used to judge people, so it should be added to anti-discrimination laws.

Genetics not desire should determine who you compete against. An XY even transitioned should compete against other XY’s the same for XX’s drug testing stays the same receiving HGH, testosterone, adrenaline all get you disqualified

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs

Yes, and the government should do more to protect minorities from discrimination

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs

No, there are only two genders which are genetically not psychologically determined

@989HYDW from Ohio disagreed…6mos

what you are talking about is biological and even with that there are not only 2. There are 3. male, female, and intersex. These are the three sexes that a child can biologically be born as. Gender however is a construct. If you were in a horrible accident and one day woke up in a body of the opposite sex you would do whatever you could so that your body matched how you feel and how you see yourself on the inside. You need to understand that there is a difference between them and that it is not okay to just say something like "oh its a disease" or "oh its just mental illness" because it isn't.

There is a very small percentage of people who are actually intersex and there's a crazy physical diagnoses for it that I can't remember. Also, most kids who experience Gender Dysphoria end up being gay/lesbian- like me. Being gay is not a disease or mental illness, no, but believing that you're not in the right body stems from Gender Dysphoria which is a mental illness. It can be treated. Throwing all these 'pronouns' at kids will only feed that mental illness. There is a very small percentage of people who are actually transgender.

Most people who go through surgery to become the opposite…  Read more

Yes God had made only two genders. In Genesis 1:27 it says , "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." This literally shows exactly that there are only two genders. Male and Female!

No, we should address gender identity as a mental health issue and provide funds for more research and care

I feel we should not add it to the law, but still help anyone with gender identity so that they are comfortable.

Yes and no. While switching genders is perfectly fine and possible (especially with today's technology), creating/making up new genders is somewhat absurd.

@9BQVD9G from Indiana answered…1mo

No you are what is assigned at birth there is no changing the chemical makeup and dna

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…1mo

You do understand that your gender is not determined by your physical or biological characteristics, right? You're probably thinking of "sex", which is physical, and not "gender", which is internal and subjective to your own personal identity...

@9BQLY3B from Kentucky answered…1mo

depends on what they're trying to say their gender is

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…1mo

Why does it matter? Which gender(s) do you think you should be allowed to discriminate against..?

@9BQKJW4 from Connecticut answered…1mo

@9BN593WRepublican from Florida answered…1mo

@9BMNGZYLibertarian from Michigan answered…1mo

Two genders and two genders only

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…1mo

The existence of non-binary people already proves that wrong. Also, policing other people's internal identity is incredibly anti-libertarian...

@9BZMQN9 from Michigan answered…3wks

As long as LGBTQ people aren’t forcing their beliefs to other people or influencing children into their beliefs, they should be treated as equally as the rest of the population of the U.S.

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…3wks

What does that even mean for LGBT+ people to "force their beliefs to other people or influence children into their beliefs"..? What "beliefs"? That it's okay to be LGBT+?

And why do you say that they should only be treated equally if they aren't "pushing their beliefs"onto others, as if equality is conditional? By that reasoning, wouldn't anyone who preaches their religion suddenly be unequal citizens under your conditions? How is that any way to qualify equality..?

@9BRTBPZDemocrat from Rhode Island answered…1mo

No but if repeated and meant to be harassment then charge with harrassment

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…1mo

But why should it be okay to discriminate against people over their gender..?

@9BRKSPB from New York answered…1mo

This doesn’t matter. There are two genders and you are born with one

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…1mo

This is not accurate in any sense. Gender is not even an objective, physical trait; gender is purely a subjective, internal interpretation of your own personal identity. You might be thinking of "sex", which is based on a plethora of physical and biological characteristics across a bimodal distribution, instead of "gender", which is a sociological/psychological term.

@9BRCNCH from Utah answered…1mo

No, but I still feel like they need validation.

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…1mo

What would be better validation than not discriminating against people for their gender..?

@9BMBSZ9 from California answered…1mo

This answer would be more helpful if it read, "Do people with a different gender identity still be regarded as equal?" And I would say yes. They share the same rights as I do. But I don't think the government should give them more benefits because someone disagreed with them and made them cry.

That has nothing to do with the question though, and nobody said anything about that the question was fine as is?

@99VF7JR from Pennsylvania answered…3mos

Transgender men and women who have a gender dysphoria diagnosis and intent to transition should be protected under law. Anyone who identifies as "nonbinary" or believes they're not a man or a woman does not deserve protection against discrimination.

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…3mos

Why does a trans person have to also have gender dysphoria to be protected under the law? And why is it fine to be trans if you're binary but not okay if you're trans and non-binary..?

@99V35DW from California answered…3mos

No, it's not the government's buisness.

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…3mos

How are anti-discrimination laws not the government's business? Whose is it?

@95QRC6S from Texas answered…9mos

@98478JN from New York answered…6mos

No, allowing gender identity should not be added to anti-discrimination laws is only going to cause issues for many people in the future assuming someone's gender just so that can talk to whomever they need to talk and in turn they get severely punished for a minor mistake.

@983W9QR from Alabama answered…6mos

heck nooooooooooo

@979LZZ6  from Kansas disagreed…6mos

Why not..? It already has no practical impact on your life, right? What exactly is the issue with ensuring people can't discriminate for gender identity..?
