transgender - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Family style mixed bathrooms are better for everyone, including transgender people. I've been a daughter shopping with a Dad, I've been a mother shopping with a son... nobody really enjoys sending their child alone into the bathroom. Family style is better.

Regarding transgender, I fail to see the point of recording gender on official documents for anybody. What is the point? Data can be collected in many ways anonymously for population planning purposes. Professional sports can ask for a DNA test for entrance to sporting categories.
It appears that we have become obsessed in this toxic society with the labelling of others, especially with an intense and revolting over-interest in the sexuality and gender orientation of others - what happened to the idea of loving our neighbours unconditionally and paying more attention to developing our own selves in good ways? After all, to change the world we change ourselves in ways that enable us to love others all the more. So let us drop the facade of "morality," the wilting fig-leaf over such garish fetish-voyeurism, and have no agenda on trans-gender.
If we let gender expand beyond the binary of male and female we can solve a lot of issues. For instance, we can have male-male, male-female, neutral, female-male, and female-female. What these allow for is to show more the balance of the person and how they identify. We can add into this trans-female and trans-male, thus seven gender identities. Thus instead of a "territory fight" over words, we make more that feel good, let folks choose and support one another. That said, because of the way human brains develop, it is important for the words "male" and "female" with their traditional definitions to remain dominant in media, stories and society (with extra options giving room for personal development from puberty onwards). Otherwise we run the risk of developing a confusing world for our children instead of one that helps them develop optimally. With kids - keep things simple - keep the adult world to the adults. When they are ready to grow up they can give up Santa and gain a more interesting adult world that will support them whatever their gender identity.
