“Biology-based restrooms, locker rooms and sports teams discriminate against transgendered students, says the Maine Human Rights Commission.
. . . Last year, the commission ruled that, under the Maine Human Rights Act, a school had discriminated against a 12-year-old transgender boy by denying him access to the girls’ bathroom.
The transgendered boy’s parents sued after the school told him to use the single-stall faculty restroom, rather than the girls’ room.
The commission will issue guidelines for schools from preschools to universities, including “some private schools,” Fox reported.
A transgendered boy might feel uncomfortable in a boys’ bathroom or locker room. Wouldn’t a whole lot of girls feel uncomfortable encountering him in a girls’ restroom or locker room?
Coaches are worried about the effect on women’s sports if males can compete on women’s teams.
