Transgender Law Reaffirms San Diego Schools' Approach, Says Board President

Privacy For All Students and people against this bill are very uneducated on transgenderism and the reason it even passed.
1. Nearly 1,000,000 people in the US identify as transgender, so it does have an effect.
2. MYTH: Transgender people are confused, and they aren’t “real” men or women—they are just crossdressers who plan to sneak into bathrooms for inappropriate reasons and harass other students.
3. In the "real" world, California included, there is discrimination protection for transgender people, and they deserve the same rights as cisgender people.
4. Most importantly, why are rights being decided on by strangers who don't care about transgender students? We learned from the civil rights movement that the majority voting on the rights of minority is not fair, so why is this any different?

Instead of holding fast to close-minded, bigoted beliefs, do the LGBT community a favor and educate yourself.
