Equality for All
Now is the time for society to accept gender diversity and stop prejudice against individuals who differ from others through no fault of their own. Every time you think negative thoughts about an LGBT individual or someone of a different culture or race, remember you could have been born that person.
Children are born color-blind. They are not born racist or prejudiced, they learn the behavior from care-givers and peers. Instead of acceptance, some children learn prejudice and fear. They grow up to be prejudiced adults. If by chance you were born with a trait, say blue eyes or transgenderism, should you be barred from using the bathroom of your choice because you were born different?
