Dear Future Mr./Mrs. President,

My name is Rebekah Rowe and am from Reno, Nevada. I am going to talk to you about the transgender bathroom policies that are and might be put into place. I have a family member who is transgender and I know that she wants to be treated just like everybody else and not have added pressure on herself. Now there is four reasons that transgender bathroom policies should not be in place anywhere, that I am going to talk about. First, it is unconstitutional. Second, half of every transgendered person commits suicide by the age of twenty. Third, teens who are transgender get sexually harassed at school because of their gender status. Fourth, most transgendered people at work are mistreated.

It is unconstitutional to have laws that prevent transgender people from using a bathroom that they feel safe in. The transgender issue is just a repeat of history with a different issue. Here is an example of the past, “This includes Jim Crow laws… enforced segregation based on race,” that was later outlawed as unconstitutional, “... includes… the Brown v. Board of Education.” said Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. It was in 1954 that Supreme Court declared that the Jim Crow laws were unconstitutional and that is exactly what is happen with the Transgender Bathroom Policies is we act now to stop it.

“It was not so very long ago that states, including North Carolina, had signs above restrooms, water fountains … keeping people out based upon a distinction without a difference,” said by the Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. You can’t put up signs to stop an individual from using the bathroom based on their gender when you and the people who put the signs up do not know what gender the individual is just by looking at the person.

The next three reasons are stated as followed and I quote, “3 out of 4 transgender youth experience sexual harassment at school,” “1 out of 2 transgender people attempt suicide by the age 20,” and “97% of transgender people have been mistreated at work because of being transgender.” Transgender people already have enough problems as it is. They have to accept and realize that they are transgender. Then they have to face the problem of coming out to their parents and friend not knowing how they will react. Transgender people do not need anymore more problems from the people around them.

Transgenders have unconstitutional laws against them, are sexually harassed, commit suicide, and are mistreated. All of the evidence cited it credible to my statement because it tells you that all of the things that are put against transgendered people takes away the constitutional rights and can kill them. All of that causes them harm and to be unhappy in their everyday lives. I now know that the Transgender Bathroom Policies that do not allow transgenders to use the bathroom of the gender that they identify with should be removed and not be placed anywhere in the entire world. I suggest that it should be enforced that all schools and every public and nonpublic place should allow all transgender people use the bathroom that they feel most comfortable in.
