The often criticized Caitlyn Jenner may be quite conservative in her political beliefs. However, she came out recently vehemently denouncing the new discriminatory bathroom laws.
“We all want safety and privacy in public bathrooms,” Caitlyn wrote on her website. “But these anti-LGBT bills, like the ones in North Carolina and Mississippi, actually make us less safe, not more safe. They open the door to abuse, aggressive and confrontational behavior in bathrooms, and encourage strangers to demand that women and girls prove that they are actually female in order to use the restroom. No one wants that.”
“If one of these harmful bills is introduced in your city or state, please take a moment and listen to the stories of actual transgender people who live near you,” she added. “Let’s help their voices are heard over the fear mongering from the other side.”
“I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what kind of message these harmful bills send, especially to transgender youth growing up in these states,” Caitlyn said.
“We need more bills like the one in Massachusetts—bills which ensure that every transgender person, no matter what state they’re growing up in, can go to school safely and get the education they deserve,” Caitlyn said. “We need to make sure they can put that education to good use by getting a job and making a living for themselves and supporting their families. We need to make sure they can buy a home and go out to a restaurant or a movie theater without facing harassment.”
“And yes, we need to make sure those trans kids—and all transgender people—can use the restrooms that align with how they live every day,” she added.
