Transgender Activist Took On A 'Bathroom Bill'

Voters in Alaska's largest city have become the first in the U.S. to defeat a so-called bathroom bill referendum that asked them to require people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender at birth.

Anchorage voters turned down a proposition that would have repealed part of a city ordinance that allowed people to use public bathroom and locker rooms according to their gender identity and would have instead required them to use those facilities according to their gender at birth.

Voting by mail and in person ended on April 3 and the repeal effort was losing 53-47 percent as of Monday, with nearly 78,000 votes counted and only several hundred to be counted when tallying ends on Friday. Supporters of the referendum conceded defeat.

Transgender activists hailed the victory, which they said could provide momentum ahead of similar upcoming votes, including one in Massachusetts in November."Not only is this a victory for Anchorage, but a victory nationally," said Lillian Lennon, who campaigned against the Anchorage vote.https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-anchorage-transgender-bathroom-bill-defeated-20180412-story.html

It is true that Transgender discrimination is still everywhere. It only shows how the people in our society is not fully ready for these changes.

Hi, just letting you know the treatment for “Gender Identity Dysphoria” is for patients to transition to the gender they identify with. Pretty much anybody who is transgender and has taken hormones and/or had surgery have already been in therapy in order to transition. I don’t understand your argument because this is what therapists and psychiatrists advocate for.

I love how people who don't really give a s**t about real mental illness will label something that isn't a mental illness as a mental illness because that is easier for you than, I dunno, not being a piece of s**t.

We have to show some respect to others regardless of their gender.

DNA determines sex, not gender.
