Americans Oppose In Limiting Transgender Bathroom Rights, A Poll Released [VIDEO]

Update Date: Mar 11, 2017 09:00 AM EST

A United States national poll was conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute regarding laws limiting the transgender community from using bathrooms with respect to their gender identities. The majority of the respondents were against it.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community has long since battled for their rights. Now, in the 21st century, there's already a rise in the acceptance of what they believe in and on what they fight for. This was according to a research led by a non-partisan group, the Reuters said.

In North Carolina, the State requires people to use bathrooms in line with their specific gender from birth: a law which Texas Republican leaders are planning to follow and adapt to. NC's current say on bathroom rights have triggered the advancing of the poll and the results sent a clear signal that the transgender community is supported by many in fighting for equal rights and gender respect.

Among those surveyed, 53 percent opposed, 39 percent support the implementation, and one out of 10 in the total number of the population surveyed had nothing to comment about it.

A division in the partisan community was also revealed, the U.S. News said. Thirty-six percent of Republicans oppose the law and 59 percent support it while 57 percent of the Independents and 65 percent of the Democrats are one with the LGBT community in raising the flag of abolishing it.

In 2016, a directive was ordered by the Obama Administration in the access of bathrooms in publics schools across America. President-elect Donald Trump did a rescind on transgender student's rights and the directive's major ruling after the U.S. Supreme Court last week on whether the LGBT community may be allowed to choose their bathroom of choice according to their gender preference.

The transgender community has been receiving support from people across the U.S. and around the globe in pushing for gender rights, equality, and the liberty for the legalization of same-sex marriage.
