This elementary school-aged child, who was born a boy but identifies as female, has dressed as female for quite a while, has been banned from using the female restrooms at school.  The school has offered to let the child use the gender neutral teachers' restrooms, or the nurse's restroom.

I'm just wondering what you think about this.  We don't have this issue at school, so I'm curious.  Would you be okay with a child that identifies as female, but has male genitalia, using the same restroom as your daughter?  Or vice versa?  Or is it more important to focus on, this child is female on the inside, so is it wrong for him/her (I'm not clear on terminology, I'm sorry) to use the male restroom?

I agree with the child having to use the gender neutral teacher or nurses restroom.

i agree. this world is such bullshit. i fear for my children as they get older. 

why do people care? i highly doubt if you ask the other kids if they care, majority would say no. 

i shouldve been born in the 40's or 50's bc this stuff today is just ridiculous. half the crap makes my mouth drop.

Poor kid. I don't see an issue with him using the girls restroom. I imagine it won't be long until he starts getting bullied and beat up in the boys room. :-(

Because she has boy parts. Im sorry, but if i had a little girl, i would not want her exposed to that. I think the gender neutral bathroom will be just fine if shes against using the boys.

I would be very upset if they didn't allow her to use the girls bathroom. Poor kid.
