Quoting laurenmik:" I have an almost 6 and almost 10 year old and I can't see them asking over and over about why someone ... [snip!] ... and why aren't we focusing on that being OKAY? It really is okay to not be like everyone else and not shameful at all."


They AREN'T focusing on her being different as being okay. They're saying that her being different means she can't use the same things her peers do. ANd let's face it. Regardless of whether or not being different is OKAY, nobody wants to feel left out or be told they're not allowed to do what everyone else is doing. And not everyone is okay with their differences being showcased. JUST because she's different doesn't mean it should be thrust into the spotlight.

Exactly, she shouldn't be thrust into the spotlight... By pulling her out of school.



We cannot make everyone in the world be tolerant, unfortunately and you cannot force other people into situations that make them feel uncomfortable either. Tolerance has to go both ways.

Would they really see her p***s if she was sitting down. No they wouldn't. So what is the issue?

But it's okay to thrust her into the spotlight by forcing her to use a separate bathroom. Yeah, okay.

This should be a non-issue. Her state issued ID and her passport both recognize her as Female. She is therefore in the eyes of the government (which a public school is run by) a female and should be allowed to use the girls restrooms.

I agree.

So let's tolerate intolerance and encourage digging one's head in the sand, rather than recognizing this little girl as female and treating her as such. That sounds better.



And as far as someone peeking ...they'd see her on the toilet, sitting.



And they'd have NO reason to want to peek if the school hadn't make a f**king issue over this little girl.

I think this child should be allowed to use the girls bathroom. She identifies as a girl so leave it at that. When you make "accomodations" like have the child use a separate bathroom its the same as doing "Separate but Equall" which is never really equall.

I think people are upset by this because they see it as a perverse and that's why they are afraid to have this child use the same bathroom as girls with vaginas. Transgendered people are not perverted or sexual deviants they were just born with the wrong equipment. When you allow something like this, the next step will be that the gay kid has to use a separate bathroom becuase he/she might sexually assult someone of the same sex since they are in the same bathroom.

Last time I checked when I went to school, no one asked me if I had a p***s or vagina. So will they now have to question all of the children to ensure that all girls that use the girls bathroom do in fact have a vagina?

You're absolutely right about the 'separate but equal' thing. That's what I thought, too.
