Praise Vermont for New Gender-Neutral Restroom Laws

Target: Phil Scott, Governor of Vermont

Goal: Thank Vermont for passing new gender-neutral bathroom law.

All public buildings in Vermont are required to designate their single-occupancy restrooms as gender-neutral, thanks to a bill signed by Governor Phil Scott. This new law takes the solution to the recent transgender bathroom controversy a step further; rather than transgender people having to fight to use the bathroom of their choice, facilities will automatically accommodate them by not being assigned to either gender.

This is a great victory in the fight for transgender rights across the United States. Single-occupancy restrooms are not much different from public toilets at outdoor events, which have never been gender-assigned; Statehouse liaison for the LGBTQIA Alliance of Vermont Brenda Churchill has pointed out the inconsistency in prior designations. These inconsistencies are a thing of the past now, saving transgender people of Vermont fear and humiliation in public places.

The fight for transgender rights is everlasting, and every victory must be celebrated. It is hoped that more and more states will follow this example. Sign this petition to thank Governor Scott for signing this bill.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Scott,

Your approval of a bill to designate all public single-occupancy restrooms gender-neutral is a great step forward in the ongoing fight for transgender rights. Thanks to you, transgender people of Vermont will have less reason to fear ostracism and humiliation over something as simple as an everyday biological need.

In a time when transgender people must fight twice as hard to be given half of what all people should be entitled to, this is a victory that must be celebrated. The bathroom issue has been heavily debated for the longest time now, gaining much public attention in the past few years, and it is hoped that more states will follow your example. Transgender people have as much right to use a bathroom as anyone else, and declaring single-occupancy facilities gender-neutral is the best solution. Thank you for signing this bill.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
