Transgender student suit goes to Maine high court
Yahoo! News ^ | 6/12/2012 | DAVID SHARP

Maine's highest court heard arguments Wednesday over whether transgender students can use the bathroom of their choice, and the girl at the heart of the case said she hoped justices would recognize the right of children to attend school without being "bullied" by peers or administrators.

Nicole Maines, now 15, watched lawyers argue over whether her rights were violated when the Orono school district required her to use a staff bathroom after there was a complaint about her using the girls' bathroom.

Maines said after the hearing in Bangor that she hopes the Supreme Judicial Court will ensure no one else experiences what she went though.

"I hope they understood how important it is for students to be able to go to school and get an education and have fun and make friends, and not have to worry about being bullied by students or the administration, and to be accepted for who they are," said Maines, who now attends a high school in southern Maine.

Her family and the Maine Human Rights Commission sued in 2009 over the school's actions, but a state judge ruled that the school district acted within its discretion. Maines is a biological male who from an early age identified as a girl.

At issue is whether the school violated the Maine Human Rights Act, which bars discrimination based on sex or sexual orientation. State law also requires separate bathrooms for boys and girls in schools.

"In her owns words, she said it was like being picked out of a crowd of students and being told, 'They're the normal students, and you're not,'" said Levi, who argued the case for the family.

They are normal, you're not. Exactly!

Any parent who is still sending his chidren to a public school should be made to listen to the court arguments.

This is interesting, A friend sent this to me, there appears to be a rift between the transgendered and the Radical FemiNazis.

http://bugbrennan.com/2012/08/03/the-trouble-with-transgender-presentation-at-radfem-reboot/

Near the bottom they say this:

[ Neo-liberalism/Ultra Capitalism – an ideology made for Trans. (Transsexual People)

1. Free market economy

2. Minimal state intervention

3. Limited social programming

4. Free trade

5. Strong property rights

6. Privatization

7. Weak unions ]

So they are basically saying trannies are all Tea Partiers... Wow them Femi-Nazis are just going koo koo for ko ko puff in all their rabid their man hating...

It sounds as though “Maine’s highest court” doesn’t have much to do. Too much free time on their hands.

That's how it described it's feelings when being made to use the staff bathroom. I didn't say that it wasn't normal, it did! But I agreed with it.

Is this your idea of a "normal" boy? And I am not talking about the brother in the background, who looks like he would rather be anywhere else but there!

I don’t think it would like a transgender bathroom. It wants to use the girls facilities and nothing else will please it.

They have the right to be screwed up.

They don't have the right to screw up everyone else around them!

If they need special treatment, they need a special school!

Maybe they can put a porta-potty in that says transgender, if the staff bathroom isn’t good enough.

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.

It doesn’t use feminine hygiene products and females who may have had an accident don’t need somebody with a tally-whacker in the restroom with them.

On an otherwise ordinary day, Brandon McInerney came to school with a loaded handgun. During computer lab, the fourteen-year-old middle-school student moved to the back of the classroom, pulled out his pistol, and fired two bullets into the head of fifteen-year-old Lawrence King. The faculty and administrators of the E.O.Green Junior High School expressed their shock and dismay. How could such a thing have happened? Prosecutors labeled Larry’s murder a hate crime. Gay activists demanded that schools be made much more “gay friendly.”...

It seems to me that the one that is not accepting this person for the way he is, is the student himself who will not accept the simple reality that he is a boy not a girl.

I agree. The parents need to have their a$$es beat for allowing this to happen. If I had a son like that he could dress and act however he wanted to after he moves out of my house. But until that day arrived his A$$ would dress and look like a boy anyway. 15 years old! God what has this country come to.

I’m assuming this “girl” has a penis.

Penises do not belong in the girls restroom!! Period.

Maines is a biological male who from an early age identified as a girl.

Funny how the moron NEWS media now reports neurotic delusions as fact.
Totally ignored reality in the very first sentence!

same here, if my boys came home and said they wanted to wear a dress then I’d be having a massive word with them but alas I raised them right and they like girls and are future good men.

[[Maine’s highest court heard arguments Wednesday over whether transgender students can use the bathroom of their choice,]]

Hmmm, gettign a judge to grant oyu an exclusive right to get yer jollies in whichever bathroom you prefer- Gee- why didn’t heterosexuals think of htis years ago? “Yuo see judge, we heterosexuals feel you are beign unfair to our perverted natures by denyign us the right to occupy the opposite sex’s restrooms and showers- You really aught to be more udnerstandign judge- shame on you”

Calling it a HER is incorrect.
