M P Johnson started this petition to Community Homeschool Enrichment Support Services

A school in Northern Virginia is forbidding students who were assigned male at birth to wear makeup, stating that it is “distracting” and against “societal norms.” 

Makeup is gender neutral and a form of self expression. If people assigned female at birth can express themselves in this way, those assigned male at birth must be allowed to as well. 

Sign this petition to show C.H.E.S.S. that we’ve moved beyond this as a society; countless LGBTQ+ activists have come before us to secure our right to express ourselves and our true gender identity. 

Sylvia Rivera was a trans woman of color who fought for LGBT rights in the 1960’s and was arrested for “impersonating a woman.”

Illuminating the lunacy of assigning gender to clothing, we have the three article rule and the very short history of gendered colors:
