MANILA, Philippines — Bataan 1st District Rep. Geraldine Roman, the first elected transgender woman in Congress, on Friday asked President Rodrigo Duterte to certify as urgent the sexual orientation

Solons mull third toilet, ‘all-gender’ toilet after harassment of trans woman “I think Senator Tito Sotto was trying to be funny, that is his usual self. You know, the term homo sapiens is irrelevant really. We want a toilet that will respond to the needs of people regardless of their gender identity,” Roman said. The congresswoman also said it is wrong to suspect transgender people of committing voyeuristic acts when it can be done by any people, regardless of gender. “To my knowledge, we enter the restroom only to relive ourselves, this is a right to health,” Roman said. “It’s stereotyping transgender women and it’s very difficult to guarantee this, it’s really a question that you have to ask all people. It’s really absurd to have to ask this question,” she added. ADVERTISEMENT Several bills prohibiting discrimination on the basis of SOGIE have been filed in the House, including Roman’s House Bill No. 136, and the Makabayan bloc’s HB No. 258. Both bills identify the denial of a person’s access to or use of establishments, facilities, utilities, or services on the basis of SOGIE as a discriminatory and illegal practice. The bills also require establishments to provide gender-neutral toilets. /muf Read Next Read more: Inquirer

Women should not be offended by presence of transgenders in public ladies toilet – Rep. RomanWomen have “no valid reason” to be offended if a transgender woman shares a public ladies toilet with them, Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman, a transgender, stated Wednesday. Dont tell women how to think. They are free to think what is right for them. Lumugar ka sa dapat mong kalagyan. Wag mo itulak ang iba dahil gusto mo ang lugar nila. Should not be offended?Bakit ksi ipinipilit ang sarili e magkaiba naman tlga ang LGBT at mga straight.magpasa na lang ng batas para mapilitang gumawa ng toilet para sa inyo ang mga establishments.Anlabo nman kc mgCR tapos may iniilagan kang katabi na maaring tumingin sa batuta mo Let the real women decide on that. Hindi lahat natutuwa sa suggestion mo.

We need action! a real diversionary issue malacanang and politicians are now feasting on. Allow them to use toilets for pwd period. Construct more of them where necessary
