Hello, everyone. I'm a freshman in college and in my English 103 class I'm writing a claim of value essay on the transgender community. My thesis will either be "It is unethical to discriminate against transgender people" OR "Discrimination against transgender people is wrong."

With a claim of value essay, supports should appeal to the needs and values of the reader. With that being said, I would appreciate it if anyone who is transgender or knows someone who is would share a story about a time when they were discriminated against because of their gender identity. My essay has to be at least 2,000 words so please don't hold back on giving me every detail of your story and how you felt.

You can contact me either here on We Heart It, my Twitter (fakingnormai), or by e-mail (arielinda35@gmail.com). Also, please share this article if you can.

Thanks in advance. :) xx
