Patching The "Black Eye"

Never An Issue

 While our country deals with the rhetoric & sometimes violent campaigning to pick our next president, the downturn of our economy, abortion rights are being trampled on by a handful of states, taxes continuing to be an issue, immigration, the Republican party finds the perfect solution to dealing with the issues by targeting the transgender community after it's "black eye" from the 2015 Supreme Court's ruling of Obergefell vs. Hodges, effectively striking down the states ban on same-sex marriages.

This shameful & hatred filled tactic (disguised as religious liberties protections) against a minority group that has had to endure intolerance & discrimination in jobs & housing all the while NEVER having 1 documented case of rape or violence against any cisgender woman or child in a woman's bathroom

Transgender individuals, one's who have felt they were born in the wrong body, go through a lot of emotional stress seeking acceptance from others, often losing friends, jobs or family upon coming out. The process or "journey" is something one can often struggle with in coming to terms with. Often the more traumatic part of transitioning is that of using the restroom of their gender identity.

With current hate laws in North Carolina, Mississippi & the possibilities of Texas & Oklahoma seeking to follow suit, you can help by taking a stand against this shameful & extremely hateful tactic by the GOP by contacting your elected officials & telling them their attacks against the transgender community is just wrong. The transgender community does not want special rights, just equal right's & for the right to live with dignity.

Standing up (OK, sitting down) for our rights!
