Transgender people should be allowed in the bathroom. I strongly support my claims becaus i think that people of the transgender community should not have to feel held down by the restrictions of bathroom usage. It is not fair for these innocent people to have to use the bathroom for the sex that is imprinted on their birthcertificate, and not by what they truly are at soul, at spirit. They should be allowed to use any bathroom they want because it is their right.

Transgender people should not be allowed to use the bathroom that they "identify" as for 2 main reasons. The first is that it is reinforcing the delusion that they are of a different gender, and secondly how would you feel if your daughter was using the bathroom and a pedophile came in and started staring at her but you couldn't make him leave because "he has the right to use the bathroom he wants."

3 points to Pro (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: I believe they have the right to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. The only rule I would put into place would be that they have to look like the gender they identify as,(they should be in the transition of male to female or female to male. not sure how to word this, or if it makes sense) Think about it this way. You have a female who has made the transition to male. They look like a man, but because they say you have to use the bathroom that goes with the gender you where born as, they have to use the women's bathroom. then you have the people in the bathroom, who are not aware that this person who looks like a man and they only way you would be able to know that they where born a women is if you look at there private area, and they start freaking out. ( again, not sure how to word this, but I hope you get what I'm saying)

[*Reason for removal*] The voter is required to assess the debate as it stands. Providing one's own arguments against a given side and voting based on those arguments is not sufficient, nor is using personal bias as a means of deciding the debate.
