Asinine bull. Gender identity, no matter what it is, should be protected. Why are we still having this conversation? Trans people are people and as such we are entitled to the same "Life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" as cis people. Or else we look like hypocrites with no values to speak or when we outcry "Freedom for all!" Or is it that it's only freedom to those who are "normal"? There is no such thing. We need to protect ALL people. All genders, sexualities, and races or we will be doing our American values a disservice. Our leaders swore to protect all of us. If they have no intention of doing so, they should step down.
