Talking About Transgender-Inclusive Non-Discrimination Laws: An Ally's Guide
The Bottom Line
As more and more cities and states extend vital non-discrimination protections to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, anti-LGBT activists have attacked these laws through false, fear-based claims about safety in public bathrooms. An Ally's Guide to Talking About Transgender-Inclusive Non-Discrimination Laws offers a two-part approach for effectively countering opponents’ strategies: first, by reminding people of their core values of fairness, equal treatment, and the idea that all hardworking people—including transgender people—should have the chance to earn a living and provide for their families without living in fear that they can be legally fired for reasons that have nothing to do with their job performance; and second, by correcting opponents’ falsehoods quickly and factually.
