the events in Achille, OK have me thinking about our trans kids getting ready to start school either tomorrow or over the next few weeks.
And Maddie, you and your family are in our collective thoughts as you start the school year in Achille today. We hope it gets much better for you as the year continues and those transphobic adults are punished.
would not be acting on bathroom discrimination complaints filed by transgender students
But back to discussing this school year that is about to start.
Trans kids, your Aunt Monica wants you to know that you are not only loved by me and your trans elders, we will fight with every fiber of our beings for your humanity and your human rights. We will also fight for your most important right of getting a quality education free from harassment by you fellow students or their transphobic parents
We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if you are left alone to handle your education business, you will excel and thrive because you are #TransExcellence personified.
No matter what happens in this 2018-19 school year, know that we unconditionally love you and are rooting for your scholastic success. Your trans elders and I also hope you have a school year as wonderful and fabulous as we know you trans kids all are, whether you're starting pre-K, elementary school, middle school, high school, college or graduate school.
Have a wonderful 2018-19 school year, trans family.
