I support people's right to be their true self. The trans people in our community deserve the respect and personal freedoms guaranteed by all people in this country, and our children especially are entitled to exist and grow in an environment that is not hostile or violent towards them. The misinformed cruelty shown towards our trans brothers and sisters in this world is not only pathetic but dangerous. We need to accept and protect the people, and even more so the children, of our marginalized communities. I know trans people, I work beside them everyday. They are normal people with the same wants and needs as every other person. They have families and children and friends and the unwillingness to allow them to live normally is absolutely pathetic.
