Re "Schools work to help transgender students fit in" (Editorial, May 18): The article claims this generation of families and children now have an acceptance, understanding and sympathy of transgenders and gays in our country, for many of them were raised or grew up in the time of the gay rights movement in the 1970s.

Children who fear judgment by their friends, families and society for wanting to be themselves, should no longer live in fear of discrimination anymore especially since 13 states have passed the law which bans gender discrimination in schools. This allows transgender students to attend facilities and activities of their decided gender, which would have not been acceptable in the past. For example, Ashton Zaine Lee fought for his right for transgender students to use bathrooms of their chosen gender.

This is still a controversial issue today, but I believe it will soon be resolved by the youth and open minds of this generation.
