A 15-year-old transgender boy in West Virginia says that his assistant principal confronted him while he was in a bathroom stall, challenging him to "come out here and use the urinal" to prove that he was really a boy. Yet again: who is harassing whom in bathrooms? ~ @TheStuffOfMemes
Restrooms at Work - Denied Access to Gender-Appropriate Restrooms by Race Eighty-six (86%) of those who have not lost a job due to bias reported that they were able to access restrooms at work appropriate for their gender identity, meaning that 14% of those who kept their jobs were denied access. Looking at the full sample, regardless of whether they were able to keep or they had lost a job, 78% were given access to restrooms appropriate for their gender identity and 22% were denied access.
Do you feel like someone is using the "wrong" bathroom? Please don't: -Stare at them -Challenge them -Insult them -Do not purposefully make them uncomfortable. Instead, please: -Respect their privacy -Respect their identity -Carry on with your day -Protect them from harm They are using the facilities they feel safe in. Please do not take this right away from them. Trans* & gender questioning students... You have every right to be here: -In this facility -In this university -In this world
@JamesMartinSJ: "It saddens me that a #trans student cannot choose what bathrooms to use. A basic need. It's an afront to their dignity as human beings." @FrMatt2013: "Um...this is a joke, right? Someone please tell me this is a parady account and not actually coming from a Catholic priest." @JamesMartinSJ: "No, I'm an actual Catholic priest in good standing who stands with the marginalized. Some charity is in order here, Father."
Propaganda is when you invent a fear that doesn't exist, like the idea that cisgender women are less safe in restrooms with transgender women. There is NO evidence that male violence against women happens more in restrooms than anywhere else (which is to say, it is too high everywhere). There is even less evidence that transwomen pose a threat to ciswomen. This is a sociology page, so it should come as no surprise that we prefer to base our conclusions on evidence, not assertions.
