  • I think there shouldn't be a quota but honestly if they get voted for awesome. We just need more trans* people to run for office (willingly of course)

  • We don't need any mentally ill people in politics, politicians are bad enough as it is.

  • we sould not enforce a quota or bias based on sexuality. there should be more good people in politics. Gender, sexual orentation, ect. does not matter.

  • How is this even debatable?

  • The suicide rate for transgender people is 41%."A study from Boston published earlier this year in the Journal of Adolescent Health, reported that 180 transsexual youth (106 female-to-male; 74 male-to-female) had a two-fold to three-fold increased risk of psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety disorder, suicidal ideation, suicide attempt, self-harm without lethal intent, and both inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment compared to a control group of youth." - Mercatornet.
