She was bullied in school for being different and so pressured into being ‘normal’ that she tried to commit suicide (Breen 2014). She prevailed and started to accept herself and her confidence didn’t grow overnight. From her experiences she has become someone enlightened due to her struggles. Caitlyn Jenner hasn’t had the same experiences based on her hiding for a longer time.

This is geared towards Trans folks being able to use the restroom based on how they identified with. There is an ad with a former baseball player, Lance Berkman, to vote no on Proposition 1. He said, “My wife and I have four daughters. Proposition 1 would allow troubled men who claim to be women to enter women’s bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms. It’s better to prevent this danger by closing women’s restrooms to men, rather than waiting for a crime to happen.
