TRANS RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS! 

For many students, seeing their gender labeled on Skyward as "Female" or "Male" causes gender dysphoria. To make our schools a better place for everyone attending, we should take steps to accept gender diverse kids, so let's start with adding an option in the school registry so that everyone feels welcome! There has been and still is perpetual and violent erasure of trans people due to inability to collect data on transgender populations. With more accurate data collection and the ability to self-identify correctly, our schools can have a more nuanced idea of the transgender community and we can use this data to push for things like bathrooms, healthcare, trans faculty, etc with evidence from the registry data.  

  Another reason there should be a Non-binary option is the Alachua County discrimination policy. "Alachua County Public Schools’ policy protects individuals from discrimination based on sex, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity."     -https://www.gainesville.com/article/LK/20160513/News/605139746/GS  If this is the case, then isn't not allowing more gender options in the schools' registry system a form of discrimination?

 

    As a trans person, I can testify that this would help make more students who aren't restricted by the gender binary feel more welcome. You might be thinking, "Well that's not very many people who will be affected." At my school alone, I know 10 non binary kids. While that may not seem like much, remember I am just one person and cannot account for everyone who might be affected by this!
