All people who lived in this world may have the freedom to express their feelings, opinions and etc. There are two genders that God create in this world, female and male. But there are some people who are not comfortable with what gender they have. People around the world face violence and inequality—and sometimes torture, even execution—because of who they love, how they look, or who they are.
The LGBT community, also referred to as the gay community, is a loosely defined grouping of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, LGBT organizations, and subcultures, united by a common culture and social movements. These communities generally celebrate pride, diversity, individuality, and sexuality.
When it comes to laws and policies addressing legal protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity, the best available science should always be the foundation. There is a law the “Equality Act 2010” which protects you from discrimination. It means that discrimination or unfair treatment on the basis of certain personal characteristics Such as age is now against the law in almost cases. Public policies can contribute to social environments, worsening or alleviating the stigma of being a sexual minority. For example, research has shown that lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals living in states without policies protecting them from employment discrimination and hate crimes are at an increased risk for psychological disorders.
The issue about the latest news that there are some transgenders who entered on a comfort room in the Farmers Plaza Mall. Gretchen Diez entered on a comfort room for the girls but they disallowed her to use the comfort room for the girls because she is a transwoman. They should not disrespect her because she entered the wrong comfort room. Gretchen Diez sees herself as a woman, so that’s why she entered a female comfort room. Trans woman Gretchen Diez said she would have willingly left the female restroom if she received complaints about her presence there. “As much as I am passionate about our rights, I’m also after women’s rights. So if I know that someone complained about me, then I should step out because I respect women’s privacy as well because I know someone is offended by my presence alone”.
Ganal said she previously allowed trans women to use the female restroom, but two women supposedly complained about Diez’ presence which prompted her to tell the trans woman to use the men’s restroom instead. I approached her nicely. I told her, “Ma’am, let’s go to the men’s comfort room instead. I couldn’t offer her the restroom for persons with disabilities because a lot of people were lined up there. There was no queue to the men’s comfort room and it was vacant. Ganal said Diez then took out her phone and began recording the incident through Facebook Live. Ganal admitted this angered her, so she took Diez to the mall security office after she refused to delete the video.
Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III gave this unsolicited advice on Friday as the arrest of transgender woman Gretchen Diez sparked debate whether they should be allowed to use women’s toilets.“I am all for respecting rights. But how about the sensitivities of women who are uncomfortable with transgenders using women’s restrooms; or straight men donning women’s clothes,” Sotto said in a Viber message to reporters.
“Restrooms are biology-based. Lesbians cannot stand in a male-only urinal. Senate President has a point for that because if there is someone who is not comfortable with the transgenders who will enter on a lady’s comfort room. We should respect their rights. Some people are pros and cons to this case because not all people are sensitive like having a friend that part of lgbt’s it’s okay for them that their friend transwoman using the comfort in the female they are comfortable with that. but others are so sensitive for this case because where is their privacy if someone enters on their comfort room. We don’t know nowadays, are just disguising and dress up like a lady in this generation criminals are just around.
Vice Ganda, who is an outspoken advocate of LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) rights, believes that the solution to the debate on the use of public, gendered restrooms is to allot a separate area for members of the community. Vice Ganda has a great idea that why don’t they have a separate restroom for the LGBT members.
I am in favor with what Vice Ganda said that if other people don’t accept what they are they should have a separate restroom. Equality is not always about treating everyone the same – it is about treating people in such a way that the outcome for each person can be the same. Why we should not accept them they are part of our family LGBT are not different to us they are human
