Lately it seems as though it’s all everyone talks about: bathrooms access for transgender individuals (and boys in the girls’ room and vice versa) now coming to a public school near you.
We have some recent polling on the bathroom issue, but we also asked participants about bathroom access in schools- before the Obama edict, before HB2, before the Charlotte ordinance. And we found that 68% oppose allowing individuals to use bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex.
Here is the question in full, as detailed in our November 2015 poll.
Transgender persons are individuals who identify as a gender that is different from the physical gender they were born as.
In various schools, education officials say a male student who identifies as a girl and participates on a girls’ sports team has the right to use the girls’ locker and bathroom room without restrictions. The same rule applies for female students who identify as male. Do you favor or oppose allowing transgender people to use bathrooms and locker rooms designated for the opposite sex?
