Yesterday, South Dakota’s legislature passed a mean-spirited and destructive bill targeting transgender youth. The bill, which will now be sent to the governor for signing, forces transgender students to use separate bathrooms and locker rooms, potentially exposing them to bullying, harassment, and isolation.
This bill would stigmatize transgender students and force many to out themselves by being made to use separate facilities.
No young person should have a target put on their back by their state government. Transgender students deserve to be treated with the same respect as all others.
Together, we can make a difference.
