Reversal of Bathroom Regs a Painful Betrayal

High school is really hard for our community.  It’s when we come of age and our sexual orientation and gender identity manifests.  It’s where we cry ourselves to sleep wondering why we’re different.  It’s where our suicide rates are off the charts compared to our straight, cisgendered friends.

So it was a huge step towards the right to live equally that Obama’s administration passed regulations so that schools would allow students to use the bathroom of their gender identity.

And so Trump has repealed the regulations, saying that is should be a state issue.  But how are transgender students in Alabama different than those in New York?  This is a sad, painful pandering to small minded bigotry.  And it hurts.
