Do you like reading comic books? Do you like fantasizing? All the different adventures the characters go on. Wishing you had ice powers or the ability to read minds, or do you just connect with the character? A big thing is comics is switching bodies. The main character wakes up and finds that they aren’t in the right body, they feel uncomfortable and until they find their bodies, they have to pretend to be someone else. Once they find their bodies, they switch right back to it.
My question is why do people not really care about the comic people switching bodies, but they make a huge deal when it comes to the people around them who are Transgender? I mean that’s their comic book story really. It’s just the same. They don’t feel comfortable in their bodies and they just want to feel right. Feel good. They will feel better until you attack making you the bad guy in their story. Now they might defeat you and be a hero or they won’t and their story will come to an end.
Transgenders have generally been around for a very long time, of course we didn’t have the technology to actually physically change the genders, but they did dress up in the opposite sex’s clothing. Even now people are still being targeted for being transgender, whether it’s physically or mentally. Here I present to you a little bit of background stories on some transgender comic book stories in our world. I will first go over what all their rights are and why they have them.
Next will be The news and laws in the society around you in America. I will say a few things that’s going on in the world generally. So now let’s move into the first stage of this essay; The Rights of Transgenders and Why We Have Them. Here we have the rights of Transgenders and why we have them. Now this part of this essay I will be explaining the different Rights Transgenders have. They really aren’t that different for human rights, but if they didn’t have these rights, lots and lots of people will go after them and their safehouses.
On Tuesday [November 3rd, 2015], voters in Houston overwhelmingly rejected a broad anti-discrimination ordinance by a whopping 62 percent to 38 percent margin over its opponents shamelessly pitched the measure as a vehicle for sexual predators to victimize young women. Message from stereotypes show how Transgenders are disturbed freaks, the world is crawling with sex offenders, and that woman/girls should be shielded from man’s private parts. 17 states plus and more than 200 towns/cities have broadly prohibited discrimination against gender identity. No evidence that shows they are allowing sexual assaults by any sexual predators.
Violence of Transgenders is still a problem. The Houston officials supporting the law—including Annise Parker, the city’s openly lesbian mayor—never intended the fight to be reduced to bathrooms in the first place. The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) was intended to protect an extremely broad range of groups, barring discrimination against individuals based on “sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, military status, religion, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or pregnancy.
The larger problem is that there is still no federal law explicitly prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, though Democrats are currently pushing to add such protections. Harsh problem: People will demonize people they don’t even know and pointing out the most uncomfortable parts of a Transgender,, the private parts. Onto the next stage; The news and laws that America is reacting to around you. Here’s a few points on America, its laws and news on Transgenders around you. Now for another part of this essay this will explain what may be exactly going on around your society in America.
Gavin Grimm’s story is an interesting one. Because of Trumps administration, Supreme Court withdrew Transgenders right of his legal fight to use the bathroom he wants. They sent this fight down to the lower court until next term, whether federal law is going against the discrimination or not. “But I’m still as passionate and happy to be doing this as ever, if it took 10 years, I’d stick with it. ” – Gavin Grimm. Its an issue that is hurting LGBT and transgender students and their parents, whose privacy and safety is being compromised by Transgender youth in school locker rooms and restrooms.
Its an issue that is hurting LGBT and Transgender students and their parents. School boards are facing lawsuits by the by the activists and parents yet also federal government recriminations. “The first duty of school districts is to protect the bodily privacy rights of all of the students who attend their schools and to respect the rights of parents who understandably don’t want their children exposed in intimate changing areas like locker rooms and showers,” said Kerri Kupec, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom.
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. “, Grimm relied on Title IX in his lawsuit, which said it was discriminatory for the local school board to insist that he use a private bathroom in the nurse’s office rather than ones that aligned with his gender identity. And the last stage; How the world all reacts to Transgenders.
Surrounding us is other places in the world where people are fighting the same fights. We have made it to the last topic of this essay: What exactly is happening in the world with Transgenders. Pakistan Transgenders are often attacked brutally and neglected by doctors and nurses. Some won’t be treated in neither male or female sections. Since March Pakistan has been addressing these divisions by allowing the country’s transgender community to identify themselves.
A recent survey from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, for example, found that more than 41% of transgender people attempt suicide—well above the national rate of 4. %. The U. S. lags on gender identity. The lack of non-binary designations means no official statistics are gathered on the US’ transgender citizens, making it easy to overlook issues affecting that population. Argentina and Denmark are the top countries to recognize and taking steps forward with their Transgenders. In fact, 34 countries in Europe still do not allow a trans person to change their name and registered gender without surgery or some sort of medical procedure.
The law is intended “[to provide] a simplified procedure which respects the privacy of the person requesting that one’s official documents be changed to reflect the person’s gender” and acknowledges that “gender identity is considered to be an inherent part of a person which may or may not need surgical or hormonal treatment or therapy” and “sex characteristics of a person vary in nature and all persons must be empowered to make their decisions affecting their own bodily integrity and physical autonomy. Now let’s end this essay with a little conclusion.
There is a lot going down from different stories to laws and protection acts being put up. We have gone over some background of transgender rights, we’ve also gone over what all is happening around you society and the world in general, showing you different events and how the world is taking care of it.
