Seven things I’m learning about transgender persons – Baptist News Global


I don’t know much about transgender issues, but I’m trying to learn.

  1. Article was good however back to my question earlier about this situation. A woman having a vagina but wants to go to a man’s bathroom because they have a man’s brain, well that is something to think about because a person that do not know the transgender person on a personal note, I could see that as a problem. I think the situation is looked at as if we know every person that we may meet in the bathroom.

    Just my ignant opinion!
