Trump Administration Removes Protection on Transgender Bathroom Use in Public Schools - Celebs React
The Trump administration has removed the guidelines that allowed transgender students to use the bathroom in school that matches their gender identity.
These guidelines were put into place during the Obama administration, but under the new administration, they are now putting states in control of their own bathroom policies in schools.
“As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level,” the White House said in a statement, adding that it “paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators.”
Just seeing the news about removing laws protecting trans people. This isn’t about politics. It’s about human rights, and it’s not okay.

Do not sleep on Transgender rights rollbacks, especially if you are LGBQ. One of the most vulnerable populations NEEDS SUPPORT.

Transgender kids are among the most vulnerable of all children. Schools and all of us have a moral obligation to protect them. https://t.co/6vevuoCStT
