Alabama ‘bathroom bill’ to prohibit use of facilities different from person’s assigned sex on birth certificate

In Alabama, the House education policy committee approved a “bathroom bill” that aims to prohibit students in K-12 schools from using a bathroom or locker room that is different from a person’s sex assigned at birth and stipulated on the birth certificate.

Perpetuating #transphobia.

In Alabama, the House education policy committee approved a “bathroom bill” that aims to prohibit students in K-12 schools from using a bathroom or locker room that is different from a person’s sex assigned at birth and stipulated on the birth certificate.

This actually continues Alabama state’s continuing attack on transgender people’s rights. The state, which does not have a law offering protections for people based on sexual orientation or gender identity, already passed a law prohibiting transgender youth from participating in sports in K-12 schools.

The bill now moves to the full House for consideration.

Similar anti-transgender bills that eye to prohibit transgender people from accessing facilities that do not correspond with their gender at birth have already been passed in Tennessee and Texas.
