Transgender Children's Bill Of Rights
1.) I have the right to be on the outside, who I truly am inside – even if I'm
2.) I have the right to dress in clothes that make me feel comfortable.
3.) I have the right to live with my parents and not be taken away from them
because of my gender identity, or what care they choose for me.
4.) I have the right to be taught by teachers who understand that gender
identity is a spectrum, not a binary. I have the right to have adults
understand that I'm not being naughty or dramatic or doing this on purpose.
5.) I have the right to be in a classroom where other students have been taught about the gender spectrum, where I can be safe, where I don't have to answer a lot of questions
or be teased for my gender.
5.) I have the right to use the right bathroom for me.
6.) I have the right to learn about other people in history whose gender didn't match the bodies they were born with.
7.) I have the right to medical care which gives me dignity and congruity. My parents have the right to insurance to help them pay for this care.
8.) I have the right to join a club or a sports team (Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, boys basketball league, etc.) that fits my identity.
9.) I have the right to go through puberty in the gender that I identify with.
10.) I have the right to be a regular kid – to work hard and play freely, to be punished when I've been bad, to get the grades I've earned, to be free of people pitying me or staring at me.
