Half are mad because transgender people shouldn’t be discriminated against and half think is unfair to make other children uncomfortable to accommodate a small percentage.

I think there needs to be a general change in how things are done.

I went to an all girls' high school and I guess I was shy/a prude/ I did not dress and undress in the open locker room...even when showering (we had shower stalls/curtains). I never wanted to walk around naked even if front of a bunch of girls.

So new schools should have locker rooms that allow for privacy. They all don't have to shower like prison inmates in the open.

BUT...in the meantime. There aren't a significant population of transgender students at schools, and I think each school needs to work with the students to work out an acceptable way to deal with this.

(I was a band Mom and even with changing into the band uniform some kids just didn't want to change in front of other kids....sure some kids dropped their pants no matter who was there -- male/female -- but many wanted privacy and there was always an opportunity to change discreetly).

Just played in a women's hockey tournament with a transgender woman. No one cared. But we're all adults.

I'd have to think a trans child would be the one who's most uncomfortable in the locker room, not the cis kids.

Abolish public schools.

Privatize and let the market decide.

Team Red no longer has to clutch their pearls and hope goons on their side infringe on the rights of others to "fix it".

Team Blue no longer has to whine about equality and hope goons on their side infringe on the rights of others to "fix it".

How many threads do you need about the same thing?

Is this all our youth knows now?

Do you agree with unrestricted locker access for transgender students?

No, and I am tired of having to say why over and over again.

I don't think they do transgender operations on "kids."

That said, I was like moneill when I was in my early teens - so shy that I would change to my gym outfit in the bathroom stalls instead of in the locker room with the other girls. A trans individual could do the same and avoid this entire foolish debate entirely.
