    Uh, duh??? What part of "anti-discrimination" doesn't make sense here?? (most relevant) United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Articles: 1-8, 12, 16-26, 28-30 Trans rights are HUMAN RIGHTS—I am a human person who has a life, has emotions, experiences, goals and compassion. I want to make the world a happier, safer place for EVERYBODY, even the people who hate me for literally no reason other than I'm not shaming myself into conformity to a human-made concept! What I do with my body is nobody else's business! The ONLY time a person's sexuality or reproductive biology should matter is when you're actively using either of those things—romance or sex. Our lack of choice in attraction to x,y,z gendered partner and our lack of choice in what our own genders are, is nobody else's business and does NOT impact most other things in life. When we created gender, it started simply as labels for reproductive parts. The SECOND we added social expectations to those labels, we created boxes. There are ALWAYS going to be people who exist outside of a box. That's a fact, and they have just as much of a right to live however they please (so long as they do no harm to others, like homophobes and transphobes do to us—harassing, attacking, and murdering us in cold blood. "Human Rights Article 1. We Are All Born Free & Equal. We are all born free. We all have our own thoughts and ideas. We should all be treated in the same way.") You do not have a right to take away other people's rights. People's "opinions" that trans people aren't a thing does NOT make us any less real, or present. We're here, we exist, mind your damn business and treat human beings like human beings. It costs $0.00 to not be an a-hole.
