More madness from the GBLT mob:



Transgender student fights to use ladies' bathroom at college... and takes equality battle to federal government



By DAILY MAIL REPORTER PUBLISHED: 21:41 EST, 26 May 2012



Jennifer Braly, a student at the University of Arkansas Fort Smith, has ushered in a new era of equality on her campus.



As a transgender student, UAFS only allowed her to use unisex restrooms, but after taking her case to the Department of Justice, the university has repealed its dated policies toward gender identity.



'Weíre just human beings, and we just want the same equal rights as everybody else,' said Ms Braly, to 5News.

(Is anybody convinced yet?)



She said the state recognizes her as a woman as she legally changed her name and gender. However, she is waiting on a sex reassignment surgery to complete the transition. 'Most people didnít know my situation being transgender,' she said. 'I was very passable.'





Ms Braly used the ladies' restroom until word got out about her situation.


'When they found out that I was transgender they got uncomfortable with me being in the bathroom with them,' said Ms Braly.



After that, she was relegated to the few and far between unisex bathrooms as per campus policy.











Transition: Ms Braly was thrilled with the news and hoped that it was 'at least a start, a step forward for this university'



'I feel like I should be treated equally as a woman because thatís what Iím transitioning into,' said Ms Braly.



She went to the Department of Justice to file a complaint.



After that, the university changed it's policy.



'Previously, UAFS designated gender neutral or unisex bathrooms for transgendered individuals.''We cannot comment on any specific student. However, UAFS allows transgendered individuals to use its restrooms based on an individualís gender identity,' the statement read.



Ms Braly was thrilled with the news and hoped that it was 'at least a start, a step forward for this university.'
