Where should a transgender schoolgirl be allowed to pee? To some, this may sound like a minor, insignificant question, but not to Nicole Maines, a 15-year-old transgender girl who attended Maine public schools. Born a boy biologically, Maines now self-identifies as a girl, dressing in girls clothing and sporting a typical 15-year-old girls hair and makeup. In addition to the harassment she faced from other kids, Maines also met intolerance by school officials, who refused to allow her to use the girls bathroom. Instead, in a remarkably insensitive decision, the school required her to use a staff bathroom after a grandparent of a male student complained that Maines shouldnt be allowed in the little girls room.
Maines parents took her out of the school and sued the school, claiming their daughters potty segregation was a violation of Maines Human Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination against transgender people on the basis of their gender identity....
Restrooms are one of the last explicit vestiges of segregation on the basis of sex. In a nation evolved enough to allow women to serve in combat and have women on the presidential ticket, we still maintain strict and outdated rules that discriminate in who can use which restroom. Even at liberal law schools like UCLA, where I teach, the bathrooms are all clearly marked for gender uses in a way that no one would accept for race: there are rooms labeled specifically for men and others specifically for women.

>> Where should a transgender schoolgirl be allowed to pee?
In an outhouse marked “Perverts”.
as soon as he goes in, arrest him and charge him with a sex crime for exposing himself to minors.
Schools need three bathrooms: Boys, Girls, ???
I don’t know any woman who wants to share a bathroom with men. The married ones complain enough about 1 man in their inner sanctum.
there are rooms labeled specifically for men and others specifically for women.
Where is the equality, I ask you?
Next thing you know there will be
rooms specifically for muslims....oh wait.
at least four.
Boys, girls, queers, dykes
OK this mental illness has gone way too far .
Now they want little girls to share bathrooms with little boys, little girls to get the abortion pill , morning after with no adult knowledge and then they have to show ID for Sudafed .
I only hope the next administration is full of grown ups who will have balls and tell these idiots to get some mental help
“now self-identifies “
Good Lord sick stuff
Maines parents took HIM out of the school.
No amount of mutilation or surgical tricks will ever make him a her . . . and his parents should be totally ashamed of themselves . . . instead of looking for a quick buck. Maybe a trip to church as a family would help a lot too. This kid is 15 and he's all screwed up already? He should be removed from his parents ASAP.
And not surgically transgendered, mind you. But “self-identifying” transgendered.
If I believe that I’m a frozen chicken dinner, does that make me a frozen chicken dinner?
Please, PLEASE tell me this is from the Onion!!!!
I keep looking for the words “Area Tran” but I can’t find it.
Ha ha—so true!
Seems like the very best solution possible.
The schools can't afford to install a third set of washrooms for “other”
And we are spending time debating this? What a nutty society!!!
God help us....As a past Manager of Security for a chain of retail stores, I checked all restrooms before locking up for the night. Did you ever see a woman only public bathroom after 12 hours? Good Lord, I’d hate to be the poor janitor.
This boy needed a dad. He’ll always be a boy; a spiritually hungry and broken boy.
“In an outhouse marked Perverts.”
You are a nice tolerant butthead. Do you honestly believe this person chooses this situation?
The body parts are what matters. What he “self- identifies” as doesn’t matter.
If it were the other way around I could see a lot of sexual predators dressing up in women’s clothes to go into the women’s room.
with the way some churches are heading, they might re-inforce his belief the he’s a she.
