In fact, I witnessed a mother calling her little toddler “weird and gay” for cleaning up a doll at the preschool.

However, for medical purposes I also believe that it is easier in certain occasions to treat patients appropriately and adequately when a gender is identify as it will allow them to get the best treatment according to their biological gender.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
