• Unsurprisingly, Trans Students Have Caused Zero Incidents in Public Bathrooms politics government education transgender trans Transphobia human rights discrimination cissexism accessibility transmisogyny trans youth gender non-conforming trans students projectqueer •

While critics have tried to claim that allowing transgendered students to use same-sex school facilities is some kind of safety or privacy concern (we’re looking at you Mike Huckabee), a new report shows that there’s actually zero evidence of that being true. None of the 17 largest US school districts’ schools with trans-inclusive nondiscrimination policies have reported a single inappropriate act, harassment, or “negative consequence,” according to a report by Media Matters for America.

In these schools, trans students are allowed into the bathrooms, locker rooms and sports teams of their choice. 

In fact, many of the schools within Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Washington, D.C., Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado, California, Oregon and Washington State say their trans-inclusive policies have improved school safety.

Hopefully this report will push other states to follow suit.
