Trans people are not a burden

In light of recent events,

Trans Pride Hats are currently $1 in my shop, with free domestic shipping. A $20 value available for the first 5-10 people who order. Order here.

Regulating transgender people's lives is the most unnecessary thing this country is currently doing. You've been to the bathroom with a transgender person in it, you've met a veteran who was transgender, you've served next to a transgender person - and you didn't even know it. You didn't know it because trans people are people, not a political issue. Transgender people deserve to live their lives and have the same rights as their cisgender counterparts. Call me crazy, but gender is not a political issue. It's not a morality issue. Stop policing transgender people's lives. There's absolutely no reason for it besides blind hatred and an inability to accept that there are people who are different than you. 

It's 2017, and somehow we have a president who believes it's OK to call an entire people group a burden. Trans people are not a burden.
