To Pee or Not To Pee

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

Too Pee or not to Pee, that is the question. Even though this topic was barely talked about a few years ago, it’s recently become the source of heated debate.  I’m here to lay down some basic information and knock out a widely believed myth.

I am strongly for the trans* peers to use the bathroom they identity with. What if you were forced to use the wrong bathroom? Now, you may be thinking of the whole “predators are gonna misuse this privilege”.  A report on CNN called attention to the anti-discrimination protections  that have been around for years. In it, they said there wasn’t any evidence that supports the idea that laws covering gender identity lead to attacks in public facilities. The security is always on stuff like this and no accident has ever happened.  They are always look out for sexual predators.

It’s pretty obvious nothing is wrong with this issue when this always happened. What if the transgender individual is on hormones and/or had they surgery and pass as if they were cis (Cisgender/Cis means someone term for someone who exclusively identifies as their sex assigned at birth). Would you wanna be forced go into the wrong bathroom? No? Then why do that to transgender peers?
