EROC Condemns Transphobic Bathroom Bans


On Sunday night, the Texas State House of Representatives voted to bar students from using the restroom of their choice. This bathroom ban would force transgender kids to use single stalls — separate from the rest of the students — and would prohibit them from using the bathroom that matches their gender identity, further stigmatizing students who are already disproportionately targeted for rape, bullying, harassment, and assault in school.

As advocates for equal educational access for all students, End Rape on Campus strongly condemns bathroom bans that jeopardize the freedom of students to safely go to the restroom. We urge Texas lawmakers to defeat this harmful legislation.
