Transgender (and LQBTQ+) youth are three times more likely to commit suicide and have suicidal thoughts than a heterosexual teenager. This is due in part by societal pressure and the conformity they have to impose on themselves to avoid being discriminated against. There needs to be protection in place for transgender youth so that they can express themselves as who they truly are.
If being transgender was a choice, many would rather life their life as their assigned sex at birth (uncomfortable in their skin, longing to be who they want to be) over dealing with the hate and discrimination they would face being transgender. And that is sad. It is not a choice, so treat them just as how anyone would treat a cisgender individual.
This is not about your religion, this is not about a made notion you have that transgender people are predators, this is about them... and making the world a better place for people to live one step at a time.
