Notable Quote: “Smashing the gender binary is dangerous political provocation in today’s climate. Ignoring stereotypes that are ingrained in the American psyche is inviting failure. Demanding that passing privilege shouldn’t matter, when it clearly always has, and should have no role in marketing the community to its neighbors, is a mistake.”[1].

Notable Quote: “In fact, there are no documented cases of trans people attacking others in bathrooms, and many reported cases of trans people being the victims of assault. Trans people, like everyone else, need a safe place to use the bathroom.”[1].

[1].Notable Quotes: “Dr. Marci Bowers, a San Mateo obstetrician and gynecologist who is widely recognized as being the first transgender doctor to successfully perform gender-affirming surgeries, said she has relaxed a previous rule that stipulated operations can only take place after “demonstrable progress” has been made in “consolidating one’s gender identity” – a welcoming nod to the 5 percent of her patients who are nonbinary.”

[2].”So too, gender expression and a broader notion of gender identity has opened my eyes to the fact that there is really no other measure in science or nature where there are only two choices. Gender is clearly fluid and broader than male and female.”
