It sure would be nice if The US Transgender community had an advocate like Naomi Lakritz, the author of the following article from The Calgary Herald.
Point by point, she makes the argument why all Transgender people should be given their basic civil rights. It is not the end of the world by giving any marginalized group of people their basic human rights. The "bathroom" argument is shot out of the water. The bottom line is that the only ones who are negatively affected by Transgender non-discrimination laws are those who discriminate.
Everyone else is a winner.
Please, please let us live our authentic lives in peace. It is all we ask.
Transgender people are just like the rest of us
