Transgender students are being forced to dress according to what they were born as and not according to what they currently identify as (eg. a trans man being made to dress female & a trans woman being made to dress male)

There is not a single probability that the adjustment of the school's dress code will affect the students, staff, faculty, and institution. It is merely an issue based on clothing and discrimination. What is sincerely being asked for is for the people affected to be able to follow the rules based on who they are. Transgender men must be allowed to use the male uniform while transgender women must be allowed to use the female uniform. This is not a form of rebellion for they are not breaking the rules, they are solely following the rules based on who and what they see themselves as, in the present. It is not who they choose to be, it's who they really are. Transgender people suffer from gender and body dysphoria on a daily. This is constant distress, discomfort, anxiety, that causes other psychological problems as well like depression and even worse, suicide. This is because of the mere fact that their gender identity differs from biological sex, not being on hormone-replacement therapy makes it worse and more so, not wearing the uniform that corresponds to their identity. Another concern is Transgender people's safety. Often times people do not know trans people are trans but are actually cis. Therefore, wearing the uniform that doesn't correspond to their identity exposes them more to more discrimination, maltreatment, harassment than they already have been experiencing. The viewpoint of cisgender students must not be taken into account for they are not affected by this cause in any shape or form. They are able to attend their classes daily without the fear of being discriminated by fellow students for just being themselves; a struggle that transgender students are otherwise having to face. Religion is instantly put into the equation but would an argument be deemed valid if the Holy Bible is weaponized as to state a point with more emphasis? This petition is a form of non-violent protest and a plea for positive change. Nothing more, nothing less.
