The answer is the difference between biological birth gender and "gender identity" which means whatever gender a person identifies with regardless of physical apparatus.

Need help with understanding this... The Obama Administration said that Male and Female students had to use the Bathrooms and Locker Rooms that matched their gender. Why was that ruling a "protection"? It's been that way for centuries.
According to the below article, the Trump Administration is planning some changes. Perhaps changes that are more in line with the comments he made in April of 2016? ATS Thread on Candidate Trump's position: www.abovetopsecret.com...
ARTICLE FROM TODAY's WASHINGTON POST:
"The Trump administration plans to roll back protections for transgender students and is preparing changes to federal guidance that required the nation’s public schools to allow students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that matched their gender identities.
A White House spokesman said Tuesday that the Education and Justice departments would soon issue new guidance on the matter. He hinted that it would be different from the Obama administration’s position, which was that denying transgender students the right to use the bathroom of their choice violates federal prohibitions against sex discrimination.
“I think that all you have to do is look at what the president’s view has been for a long time, that this is not something that the federal government should be involved in, this is a states’ rights issue,” spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters at a daily media briefing Tuesday afternoon 2.21.2017"

There is a female in the news today that identifies with a cat...seriously.
Unless you have had an actual SEX CHANGE, physically changed your organs...let stop this.
I do not want my daughter or son to see the opposite sex organs until such time as he or she sees then privately.
I like most people we all go into the bathroom and shut the door so that we will not be seen, why is it that I should have to see everyone's private parts just to be in public.
COME lets get real.

In Colorado a judge ruled yesterday female nipples can be seen, so now when you go out in public you have to look at some boobs fully exposed in other words shirtless.

If someone truly is transitioning I have no issue. It is the ability to 'chose' that is wrong here.
When someone transitions they can petition the court and they are identified as the new gender moving forward. Why is this so hard to realize? I know, sensationalism....
Many kids, even the ones truly transgender live in homes with unsupportive families or in those lacking the financial resources to go through legal processes or obtain the medical care from professionals qualified to diagnose gender dysphoria.
Just remember all of you ..... this involves bathrooms, gyms, locker rooms etc. Also remember we as people are sexual aroused by SIGHT.
