This isn't complicated. 2020 is a referendum on Trump.

The job of the Biden campaign is simple, and Trump is helping.

Or, you know… not.

Ninety percent of transgender and gender nonconforming people report harassment, discrimination and mistreatment on the job, and the injustices they face have devastating economic and personal consequences, according to a new survey.

- nnlm.gov

A staggering 41% of respondents reported attempting suicide compared to 1.6% of the general population, with rates rising for those who were harassed/bullied in school (51%)… It is part of social and legal convention in the United States to discriminate against, ridicule, and abuse transgender and gender nonconforming people within foundational institutions such as the family, schools, the workplace and health care settings, every day. Instead of recognizing that the moral failure lies in society’s unwillingness to embrace different gender identities and expressions, society blames transgender and gender non-conforming people for bringing discrimination and violence on themselves.

- 2011 study of 6,450 trans people

Discrimination and lack of equal civil rights is damaging to the mental health of transgender and gender variant individuals. For example, gender-based discrimination and victimization were found to be independently associated with attempted suicide in a population of transgender individuals, 32% of whom had histories of trying to kill themselves, and in the largest survey to date of gender variant and transgender people 41% reported attempting suicide.

The APA joins other organizations, including the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association, in endorsing strong policy statements deploring the discrimination experienced by gender variant and transgender individuals and calling for laws to protect their civil rights.

The American Psychiatric Association:

Supports laws that protect the civil rights of transgender and gender variant individuals.
Urges the repeal of laws and policies that discriminate against transgender and gender variant people.
Opposes all public and private discrimination against transgender and gender variant individuals in such areas as health care, employment, housing, public accommodation, education, and licensing.
Declares that no burden of proof of such judgment, capacity, or reliability shall be placed upon these individuals greater than that imposed on any other persons.

The so-called gay and trans “panic” defense is when a jury is asked to find that a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity is to blame for the defendant’s violent reaction. The perpetrator claims that the victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity not only explain – but excuse – their loss of self-control and subsequent assault of an LGBT individual. By fully or partially acquitting the perpetrators of crimes against LGBT victims, these defenses imply that LGBT lives are worth less than others.

Ok, that's all well and fine. BUT, you miss the big picture where someone was born into a body their brain cannot accept. IMHO THAT has more to do with it that anything. You know people can be just born fukked up right?

Interesting they provide all kids of graphs and statistics and don't explain how it was arrived at. You know, people that are born with issues tend to get harassed or denied something because they tend to become a$$holes or just weird (and I don;t just mean guys cross dressing). I am not denying transgender people gets the $hit end of life's stick but to think everything revolves around their perceived vs biological sexuality seems a tad far. Some people just want to have to deal with their issues on top of their own. I see this is HS and drum corps color guards where the "guys" are more worried about how gay they are rather than doing their guard work. It's rather surreal.
