I have to agree with some people on this topic, that transgender or not, if you have the pieces, you should go to that physical bathroom. If you're
a man, who believes themselves to be a woman, yet still has the parts then you should use the men's room. Same goes for a woman who believes
themselves to be a man. Until you get physically changed, you should use your biological restroom.
But that's not why I'm responding. I wanted to add more to this comment.
I highly doubt the kid was actually harassing girls in the bathroom. Sounds like BS and an awful lot of trouble to go through.
I live near Florence. In fact, many people from Florence drive to my town to shop, eat, or just hang out with people they know. They're so close,
they might as well be the same town. One thing I can honestly tell you about the youth in these towns is that they are very rude. They have
absolutely no respect for anyone, or anything. Granted, there are some good kids down here, but many bad. Now, I know many people will want to say
"That's how teens are!", which is true somewhat. But I've lived around in Colorado, and though teens are teens, they seem really bad here. A lot
of that is also because the parents are literally not much different. There's a lot of rudeness down here, and a lot of disrespect for each other.
Maybe it's small town crap.
Anyway, the point I'm getting at is based on what I've seen from the majority of teens here, is that I can honestly believe that this boy is
harassing the girls. Now how he's harassing them, I don't know. Maybe it's that he hears girls whispering crap about not liking him in the
restroom, so he gets upset, and gets in their faces. Or maybe he makes rude remarks. Maybe he's trying to be "one of the girls", and they don't
appreciate it. I don't know, but I can believe that he's being rude.
In fact, in the year I've lived down here, I've only seen one male transgender teen around. In a small town, you notice things like that. So if he
is who I think he is, I have even more reason to believe the girls in this situation, based on the crowd I've seen him hang out with, as well as
things he's done.
Now I don't know if they are the same people, but that's ok. The point of my reply is don't rule out the boy being the bad one here, because
people in this town don't seem to like to respect each other.
