If your son had a friend who identified as male but was biologically female
OR
If your daughter had a friend who identified as a female but was biologically male



Would you let that friend stay the night and share a room/bed with your child?

If they have opposite parts, they're not having a sleep over.

I don't see why not? How old?

Sure but not bed. I was raised not sharing beds with friends (no particular reason really besides having a small bed) and I think I'll be the same with my kids. They'd probably rather sleep in sleeping bags anyway.

If I was hosting a sleepover then everything would be in the living room(pallets & all)regardless of what the sex of the children were so that I could properly supervise without them being able to shut the door.

It's hypothetical but in the story I just read that this was based on, they're 13

I'm perfectly fine with my son having a sleep over with girls (he's 10), so I don't see why not.

So you made your friends sleep on the floor? I always shared a bed with my friends. Even as recently as a couple years ago. Me and my LO stayed the night with my friend and we all shared a bed.

I always sleep in the same bed with my friend if we have "sleep overs" and we're 29 :)

Depends on age, and if they are old enough for it to be a concern then it depends on which sex the transgendered one is attracted to. My current boss is transgendered. She is biologically male, but identifies as a female- BUT she is still attracted to women.

They probably wouldn't share a bed, but I would let the friend stay over.

If you said no, what would you tell your kids?

I never shared a bed with any of my friends who spent the night. That was when you got to get out sleeping bags or blankets and sleep on the floor.



With them being 13, no. If they were, say, 8 or under, yes.
