We just hope this gets vetoed!

On Tuesday, the South Dakota Senate passed a bill that requires high school students to use restrooms based on their "chromosomes and anatomy" at birth.

This measure is seen as discriminatory towards the transgender community as it forces students to use facilities that do not match their gender. This act could lead to more prejudice and intolerance.

Proponents of the bill argue that this is necessary to protect children's privacy.

The measure passed with a vote of 20-15, and was previously approved in the State House of Representatives.

Governor Dennis Daugaard has five days to veto the bill, or else it will become law.

According to Mara Keisling from The National Center for Transgender Equality:

"This bill hurts transgender students, takes away control from local schools, and doesn't solve any problems. In fact, it does more harm than good to both trans kids and South Dakota's reputation."

We're confident South Dakota will make the right decision.
