Thank goodness. South Dakota Governor Daugaard has vetoed legislation that would have prohibited transgender students from using bathrooms that match their gender. Congrats to the National Center for Transgender Equality, the Transgender Law Center, and all who worked to persuade Gov. Daugaard to do the just and humane thing. More work ahead in states across the country, but this is encouraging.
