It’s not easy to shred months of misinformation about the transgender community with one protest sign. But 10-year-old Rebekah came pretty darn close.

Rebekah is a transgender girl from New Jersey. She attended a LGBTQ rights rally in Jersey City with her mom last week.

Jersey City LGBT Pride and Garden State Equality organized the rally after Donald Trump rolled back Obama-era protections for transgender students. Among other things, the guidelines required public schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom corresponding with their gender identity.

Opponents of the guidelines claimed they put children in danger, by allowing men and boys into bathrooms with young girls. Conversely, many transgender students claim they make their fellow students uncomfortable by using a restroom incongruent with their transgender identity. Plus, there are no recorded incidents of transgender people attacking others in a bathroom.

But Rebekah didn’t need to say all that. She summed it up in one perfect sentence.

So since everyone is posting my kid on Instagram, figured I might as well too ???????? #sheseverywhere #protecttranskids

“I’m the scary transgender person the media warned you about,” read the smiling fourth grader’s homemade sign. Her mother, Jamie Bruesehoff, told Revelist they went through several sign ideas before finding the one Rebekah loved.

"She thought it was funny, because she's not scary at all," Brueshoff said. "She doesn't understand why anyone would want to prevent her from using the girls bathroom. She's just a girl." 

Onstage at the rally last weekend, Rebekah echoed that sentiment.

"This is who I am," she told the crowd. "When I go to school I don't think about being transgender, I just think about being myself, learning, and having fun."

Rebekah started her transition at age eight, after suffering from anxiety and severe depression.

“We had a seven-year-old child in crisis,” Bruesehoff told The Huffington Post. The family enlisted the help of professionals, and quickly realized that their child was transgender. Rebekah has been living as a girl ever since.

“My kid is lucky. She has the support she needs,” Bruesehoff said. “She fits in society’s box as a girl. Not every other child is so lucky. … We must keep striving to lift up the voices of those most vulnerable! Their voices are beautiful and bold and need to be heard!”
