Human Rights Should Not Be Subject Of A Popularity Contest

Women would never have gotten the right to vote.
Black would probably still be segregated.
LGBT people would never been able to marry.

The reason why human rights should never be voted on is because human rights protect all people and the majority will never give rights to the people that they oppress.
CBS Poll: Americans Divided Over Transgender Bathroom Laws
May 19, 2016

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Americans remain divided over the issue of whether transgender people should use the restroom of their birth gender, or of the gender they identify with.

According to a new CBS/New York Times poll, 46 percent of Americans said they believed transgender people should use the bathroom connected to their birth gender, with 41 percent saying they believed transgender people had the right to use the bathroom of the gender they identify as.
[…]
Democrats and liberals are overwhelmingly in support of transgender people using the bathroom they identify with, with 60 percent of Democrats and 71 percent of liberals saying they supported the idea.

On the other side of the aisle, two-thirds of Republicans and 66 percent of conservatives said they believed that transgender people should use the bathroom associated with their birth gender.

Independent voters were split on their view, with 49 percent believing transgender people should use the bathroom associated with their birth gender, and 38 saying they should be able to use the restroom they identify with.
This is very interesting,
Men and women were also split on the idea — more women favored transgender use of the bathroom they identify as (46 percent), while more men (51 percent) said they believed that transgender people should use the bathroom associated with their gender.
Hey, wait a minute isn’t this whole thing about protecting the women? But they seem to feel that they are safe in the bathroom with trans women… then why pass the anti-trans bathroom laws?

Oh wait, the laws were passed by men not women. Maybe it is because the men feel that their manhood would be questioned if they didn’t vote for the anti-trans legislation.
