In May of 2016 president, Obama instructed schools to allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom the students identifies their self as. Whatever state that resisted this proclamation would be subject to not receive federal funding. I always thought things like this should be handled on the State level of the government. I can see how transgenders can look at this as a civil rights battle.
Current president Donald Trump has revoked these guidelines set by President Obama. Although this is still being look over by a federal judge, it did not take the LGBTQ community long to begin their protest.

I feel this is a regression for America in the terms of equality. I cannot directly relate to what the LGBTQ community is going through, but I am against discrimination across the board. I do believe this entire transgender bathroom thing should be handled on the State government level.
