Dear future President

Transgender people should have the right to use the restroom they identify with.

Transgender people are people too. They should have the right to use the bathrooms that match the gender that they identify as. This is important to me because I have many transgender friends, and I am transgender myself. I was born a girl and now function in society as a male. Using the ladies room frightens the occupants, and makes me incredibly uncomfortable, so most of the time I will opt for using the men's room. If a law was passed to allow transgender people to use the correct bathroom, the transgender people will be safer. Violence towards transgender people would be decreased and discouraged. The community as a whole would be more comfortable if transgender people were allowed to use the bathroom that correlated with their gender identity. If something could be passed similar to the Obama transgender school bathroom policy, that could solve our problem.
