A transgender girl who won a precedent-setting state Supreme Judicial Court decision in January after school administrators in Orono made her use a staff bathroom was awarded $75,000 in a lower court settlement last week with the school district.
Her use of the communal bathroom was uneventful until one boy, at the direction of his legal guardian – his grandfather – followed Nicole into the girls’ bathroom twice, arguing that he, too, was entitled to use it. In the ensuing controversy, the school administration reversed its course, barring Nicole from using the communal girls’ bathroom.
I mean being different should be celebrated it should be worn as a badge of honor that your different then the rest you don't care what people say that your resilient and you don't need or want special treatment.

I don't know. I would think that someone appearing as a woman going into the men's room would be a "badge of honor" that might not go over so well. Likewise with a woman dressed as man in the woman's room.
I think the answer is transgender bathrooms....like family bathrooms that a lot of places have now, where men can take their little daughters, and women can take their small sons.....
Transgendered means you literally self identify as a female, it isn't just liking to dress up as one.
