When Amtrak train drivers and passengers meet, the gender identities of those involved in the conversation are a major part of the discussion.
And when that conversation turns to gender identity, it’s important that everyone has the opportunity to discuss their own gender identity.
That means that trans women of color must not only know their pronouns but also their gender identities.
So for those trans women, including myself, we are all trains, and the trains we take to the trains on a daily basis are a train of trains.
And this year, in the wake of the election of President Donald Trump, Amtrak is adding new training classes for train drivers, who are expected to teach train passengers how to recognize their gender, when to ask for a change of gender, and how to be respectful of others in the train.
It’s not surprising that many trans women and people of color take this training, but what was surprising to me is how little attention to gender equality was paid.
That’s because the majority of transgender train passengers and passengers of color were not told about these new classes, nor were they given the opportunity for train operators to address their gender identity directly with them.
In fact, many train drivers were surprised that they had not been included in the new training, because many of them have trans male colleagues, and train operators are trained to treat trans men and trans women the same.
This means that the training has the potential to have a negative impact on the lives of trans women in the country.
Train drivers and train passengers of all genders should be given the same training, not less.
That is why we are filing a federal civil rights lawsuit, calling on the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to ensure that transgender train drivers receive equal training and equal opportunities to receive train services, and to ensure all transgender train riders are afforded equal treatment and equal opportunity to receive rail service.
Train passengers and train drivers of all gender identities should be able to learn about their own identities without being expected to conform to stereotypical notions about their gender.
In a recent study by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), a majority of trans female train passengers were told that their gender was a “dysphoria.”
Train drivers are not required to tell passengers that their own trans status is a “disorder,” and it’s not acceptable to discriminate against trans people based on their gender or expression.
However, in a recent survey of trans and gender-nonconforming people by AAUW, train drivers made it clear that they believe trans people should not be able access or use restrooms and locker rooms that match their gender expression.
They are told that they are not allowed to use the bathroom or locker room that corresponds with their gender at all, and that trans people are not welcome in the workplace.
These messages are especially disturbing for train train passengers, who often have to deal with harassment and violence from people who do not accept the trans identities of their train passengers.
In many states, including the District of Columbia, trans people have been subject to physical violence and harassment at the hands of law enforcement officers and others for not fitting into gender stereotypes, including a man who killed a trans woman at a train station in North Carolina.
These threats and violence make trans people vulnerable to violence.
As a result, trans train passengers are more likely to report experiencing discrimination and violence at the station and other places, including from police officers, and at train stations in other cities.
Train operators must ensure that trans train riders receive the same train safety training that all train passengers receive.
They must ensure train passengers have access to the appropriate restrooms and other safe facilities, including restrooms that are gender neutral and are accessible to everyone, regardless of gender identity or expression, such as in the case of restrooms in the men’s restroom at Amtrak’s Grand Central Station in New York City.
Train riders should also be able take advantage of train safety improvements like seat belt usage and seat belts that are more secure, and provide the same protections for trans women.
Train operator education and training should include trans-inclusive training for train passengers to prevent discrimination and harassment, and training to assist trans train operators in understanding their roles in the transportation system.
The train operators must also make it clear to train passengers that they can be fired for speaking their mind and for being transgender, and for reporting discrimination and abuse.
We are seeking a federal court order to ensure trans train operator training to include trans gender identities and gender expression in the training.
We will continue to fight for equality and inclusion for all train operators, including train drivers.
As we continue to build trans inclusive train systems across the country, train operators need to be able and willing to teach their trans train passenger counterparts how to express themselves in a safe and respectful manner.
