Sadie's dream for the world
"The world would be a better place if everyone had the
right to be themselves
, including people who have a
creative gender identity and expression
. Transgender people are
not allowed the freedom
to do things everyone else does, like go to the
doctor
, go to
school
, get a
job
, and even make
friends
.

Transgender kids like me are
not allowed to go to most schools
because the
teachers
think we are
different
from everyone else. The schools get afraid of how they will talk with the other kids' parents, and transgender kids are
kept secret
or told not to come there anymore. Kids are told not to be friends with transgender kids, which makes us very lonely and sad.

When they grow up, transgender adults have a hard time getting a job because the boss thinks the
customers will be scared away
. Doctors are afraid of treating transgender patients because they
don't know how to take care of them
, and some doctors don't really want to help them. Transgender patients like me travel to other states to see a good doctor.

It would be a better world if everyone knew that transgender people have the same hopes and dreams as everyone else. We like to make friends and want to go to school. Transgender people want to get good jobs and go to doctors like they are exactly the same. It really isn't that hard to like transgender people because we are like everyone else."
