Are you sure?


Yes because they still have female body. Why would the girls have problem with that? That is like saying that the girls have problem with tomboys who act and dress too much like men.


Have you seen pictures of trans men? Once they've been on hormones for awhile they grow beards and sound like men.

Lila looks more feminine than most trans men.

Not female in every way then. If my bf was transsexual but still had a penis, I would say he was different than myself. I would say that if a person has a penis that they are not female "in every way"


I suppose that intersex people are not 100% either way.

asking the other ladies of the thread if they'd be okay with any of the handsome males on the image search just walking into the women's bathroom simply because they still had vaginas


Ok now that is clear. But that is not the topic is it? Yes I am in agreement with you about some strange men walking into adult woman's bathroom. I am not debating that.

But the topic is THOSE high school girls and Lila.


It's the same issue. Locker rooms and bathrooms are not to dissimilar. They're both traditionally places of gender-labeled function. Both have toilets, as far as I've seen, and both are places of public exposure. Whether Lila's transgender or not remains unseen, but we're discussing what essentially boils down to a RIGHT. Is it my right to use a women's facility, or should I do the pee-pee dance wherever I go and limit myself to broom closets to change, or risk mockery among male peers? Lila, if trans, faces this conundrum.

Yep. But the point here is that why would high school girls knowing a transman (who has been transitioning mind you) over the years that have used their locker room suddenly have a problem?

Anyone want to take a wild guess who the girls would have a bigger problem with in the locker room?

Transgender boy:


Lila:

Um, because testosterone.

Oh I understand. I do agree. As far as some strange men walking into a woman's locker room yes the women have the right to be concerned. I am in agreement with you.

LOL I would venture a guess and say they would have bigger problem with that guy in the first picture.

That has been discussed. Remember we are talking about trans KIDS who are transitioning. The same people the girls have known for years. They don't all of sudden look like men with all the muscles, do they?

Let's do look at the from the opposite direction a little more closely for a minute.

Ladies, how would you feel about bumping into this guy in the bathroom? I won't deny for a second I would be a little freaked out and wonder what the hell is going on.

Gentlemen, would you bat an eye at this guy in your bathroom or think twice about it?



FWIW, dude is hot even if he was born female.



Most trans men are incredibly hot. I'd fall for a lot them. Lol

Though I will give you this one - if a transboy that looks and sounds like a man were to move to another school and the girls don't know him then yes they would be uncomfortable and rightly so.

You'd be surprised how much the body of a trans guy on testosterone changes. Some grow a full beard and have a mans voice in only 6 months or so. Now imagine one started their transition over summer vacation. By fall they'd look and sound and act like boys.

Even though he'd be the same person the girls knew last year he'd feel, look, sound, act and smell like a dude.

Testosterone is powerful stuff (which is why it was so important for me to block its production at 12).

And yes, plenty of teenage trans guys take testosterone shots.

Ok. I guess at that point that transboy no longer have the right to girl's locker room.

And I know for sure the boys would welcome him in their locker room.

[edit] Looking back at why I am debating this point - it's just that many people here in this thread are saying that girls are uncomfortable with Lila because he has a penis. Pre-op transmen don't.

And now you should grasp why I was arguing the vagina and penis thing as being silly. Because it is. A penis is not going to cause an apocalypse.

See that's the thing. I entered high school in 9th grade looking, sounding, acting like a typical girl my age. No one ever knew me as anything different but word gets around and when it did I faced the opposition I talked about before.

However it was just one girls parents who complained.

Nothing at all like the firestorm around Lila.

I think this was because:

1. I started my transition medically at 12 before entering high school.

2. Seattle

Yeah. I don't trust this Lila fella. He claimed that he has been a transgirl 'in the closet' so to speak for years then all of sudden he announces that he's a transgirl and started to use girl's locker room.

Where is the proof of that? I wonder if he even is gay. Like one poster pointed out, it sounds like a frat hazing ritual.

Again though, what would be more uncomfortable for those girls, Lila, who if she is really a trans girl will probably be quiet and keep to herself until some of them offer friendship.....

or some trans boy who has a beard, armpit hair, a guy's voice and like most boys, acts like teenage boy and is all too eager to stare at their bodies?

I will concede this point (I won't even bring up lesbians). My opinion I don't think the girls will be uncomfortable after they find out. Why don't we ask those girls? Their opinions matter, not mine.

S/he also said her parents and family don't support her so this is understandable. A lot of trans kids don't transition until they're in their teens if they only have a little or no family support.

I was lucky, without my family I could have been in Lilas situation. Many trans kids are.I guess that's why I want to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Ask Kojiro if her mom would have helped her get on testosterone blockers and hormones before high school. She was in the closet even 10 years AFTER high school.


Where is the proof of that? I wonder if he even is gay. Like one poster pointed out, it sounds like a frat hazing ritual.


If someone else could vouch for the trans or gay claim ie: therapist, other students, a boyfriend etc that would go a long way, I agree.
