I think the following story from USA Today raises some tough questions as a parent, a transgender child was banned from using the girls restroom at his elementary school. He identifies with being a girl, wears girl clothes and up until recently, was accepted by the school (I'm using the pronoun "he, his" just to explain the story more clearly).
Here is the link if you would like to watch the video of their story: http://www.usatoday.com/videos/news/nation/2013/02/27/1951661/
My heart does go out to the parents and this child, it's a very difficult situation to find yourselves in; I applaud them for sticking up for their child and accepting her fully. I'm guessing that the school suddenly changed their policy as a result of a parent complaint.
So two questions:
As a parent, how would you feel if a male transgender child was using your daughter's restroom at school?
As a parent, how would you feel if a female transgender child was using your son's restroom at school?
