    ...Is this still happening?

    I'd go, if it wasn't in Washington DC, and I wasn't poor.

    Well...I dunno if I'd go at all actually. I don't really see the point; it's already illegal to discriminate based on gender, race, or sexual orientation. Marching isn't something I'd do unless I felt oppressed; legal protections are kind of the opposite of oppression. I feel too many groups these days that used to be oppressed (for real) in the past and aren't oppressed anymore just want to start fighting for special privileges too. Maybe they just forgot what it's like to not have to fight.

    Just google the bathroom ban. Trans folks are definitely oppressed. They have few legal protections. They do not have special privileges. Illegal doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

    They won't succeed; regardless of marching. It's against the law.

    In America, those people are criminals; in some places in America, they're even put to death; doesn't matter if the person they killed was trans or gay; instant death penalty for a heinous hate crime. Good folks in Washington DC can be thanked for that.

    These incidents you mention typically take place in the Middle East; not in America.

    First, again, this isn't in America. Second, it's almost entirely false. It's NOT illegal to be LGBT in Russia; it is seen with much contempt though, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if there's violence because of it; there situation probably sucks a lot more because they aren't America. Thirdly, these alleged death camps are supposedly in Chechnya; a federal subject of Russia, and there's only one of them, and it's not certain yet what it even is. The US has urged Russia to investigate it; if they find out human rights violations have taken place against any of their citizens, whether they're gay or not, Russia is probably going to kill everyone responsible. The full story isn't actually known yet, so it's best that we don't pretend like it is. Let alone march on Washington DC over something that's happening on the other side of the planet. Marches all throughout history have often been taken as a show of force. It makes people uncomfortable, which escalates tension, which causes arguments, which causes citizens to fight one another, which causes someone to call the cops, which causes a standoff, which causes a crowd control situation, which causes unrest, which causes looting, which causes some politicians to "give them space to destroy" the city even more.

    Why not just....let it go? Enjoy freedom. Enjoy being an American where you're rights are protected.

    Or go to the Middle East and try to catch gay people falling from the sky. That'd literally do just as much good haha.

    Personally I'd just enjoy life instead of wasting time getting angry at a Government that's one of the only ones on the whole planet that doesn't just go out of their ways for minorities, but actually gives them a bunch of extra stuff too. Seriously. Count your blessings.

    Bull. The bathroom ban is laughable. Trying to actually BAN someone from using the bathroom would be oppression; asking a male to use the male bathroom instead of the lady's room is NOT oppression. It's pathetic. Use the bathroom that belongs to whatever gender you look like and there shouldn't be any issues.

    And yes, in places in America, thanks to the bathroom uproar, there are now new bathrooms made specially for trans folks if they don't want to use the men's bathroom. This helps further protect them from homophobes who might want to do them harm. People went OUT OF THEIR WAY to make this happen. Hence, special privilege. It's not enough though; nothing probably will be. It all boils down to a selfish sense of entitlement.

    If you want to actually make a difference, start teaching each other how to protect yourself from criminals. Get a gun; another freedom you get to enjoy thanks to good folks in Washington DC; the same place people are always yelling about marching on. I'll never understand it haha; talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

    PS: Most people didn't even have a bathroom not that long ago, let alone two, and they got along just fine.
