Transgender bathrooms have became a prominent issue in American culture.
While some Americans believe that transgender men and women should not be able to use the bathroom that they identify with because they believe it poses a safety concern, not allowing transgender men and women to use the bathroom they identify with is a right they should have to promote equality to all Americans.
Laws, Discrimination, and Safety are the three main points that make contemporary America not as great as it could be.
A variety of laws have been passed that created controversy on the issue of transgender bathrooms.“North Carolina's newest state law takes away the ability for any other city or county in the state to pass general anti-discrimination laws protecting a range of people” (Douglas).The North Carolina bill was sued by the Obama administration.
Safety is the most vital for all Americans to be equal. If a transgender male cannot use the bathroom it violates his rights as an American citizen.In a survey it found that 12 percent of transgender people were verbally harassed in public restrooms(Trotta). Another 1 percent were physically attacked and 1 percent were sexually assaulted”(Trotta). As an American, The citizens of this great nation should not be abused verbally, sexually, or physically just by using the bathroom they identify with.
