Am I Transgender/Non Conforming?
This is just one question that children, teens, adults, and parents may ask.
Although each one of us has a gender identity–a deep-seated, inner sense of being male or female–not everyone’s #genderidentity matches the sex that was assigned to them at birth. And, many of us do not match the stereotypes associated with how we should express our gender. So what do we do?
Do you think you are '#transgender' or non conforming and don't know what to do?
Do you know of anyone that is being discriminated against due to being transgender?
If so tell me about it here!
You have legal rights!
Some states have passed gender identity anti discrimination laws that apply to schools and out-of-home-care settings. Some states have passed laws that specifically prohibit bullying on the basis of gender identity. Even in states that have no such laws, federal statutes like the Equal Access Act and Title IX of the Civil Rights Act protect equal opportunity and free expression. The U.S. Constitution, like many state constitutions, guarantees equal protection—which means that public schools and a range of other facilities must present valid reasons for treating someone differently.
