    Transgender student suit goes to Maine high court

    BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Maine's highest court heard arguments Wednesday over whether transgender students can use the bathroom of their choice...

    Nicole Maines, now 15, watched lawyers argue over whether her rights were violated when the Orono school district required her to use a staff bathroom after there was a complaint about her using the girls' bathroom.

    Her family and the Maine Human Rights Commission sued in 2009 over the school's actions, but a state judge ruled that the school district acted within its discretion. Maines is a biological male who from an early age identified as a girl.
    And there you have it.

    Dude, you are not a chick. You have a frank and beans. You use the men's bathroom. Someone take a freaking stand and tell this dude that boys don't get to use the girls bathroom. Oy.

    And the Maine Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics filed a brief urging that transgender children be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice.
    WTF???

    Tell me again about equal rights when you want special rights. Once again you have given me permission to not treat you as an equal because you are asking to not be treated as one. Well done dopes.

    We're going to end up having 3 bathrooms, in the long run. Men, women, and all of the in-betweens.

    We could have a fun contest to see who can come up with the funniest international symbol for the newest bathroom designation.

    Many places already have three...Men, women, and family...that will add a fourth!
    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    Andrew Wilkow had a great point about this story. The focus is being put on the supposed rights of this very confused student but no one is taking into consideration the rights of the other anatomical girls. What about their rights? Should they be made to feel uncomfortable? As I keep saying, you cannot tread on the right of others to invoke the supposed rights of 1. Also, the writer appears to be one of those who feel gender is ambiguous by calling an anatomical male "she" and "her".

    And there you have it.

    Dude, you are not a chick.
    OK, so Nicole isn't female. Albeit that Nicole looks more like a girl than most of these cases. Now what? ALl of this is happening because one old man complained that Nicole was using the girls room. Apparently no one else cared, and why should they?

    But, how exactly is forcing Nicole to use the boys room a solution? Are you telling me that the same old man wouldn't complain that there was a boy dressed as a girl (or probably simply "a gol darned prevert!") using the boys room?

    And why do you take such delight in so very cleverly quoting some ancient show band? Because you think it's funny to make fun of kids? Aren't you the decent person.

    Grow up. Who cares what bathroom someone uses. If it's a problem for you, obviously you lived a charmed life with too little to worry about.

    What we ought to have are single user bathrooms, especially in schools where bathrooms are danger zones to a lot of kids and not simply those who cross dress or identify out of gender stereotype.

    No how about we just make them like we have always made them and force the MALES(physical and genetic)to go into the men's room and the FEMALES(likewise) to go into the ladies room and tell the the mentally ill to suck it up.

    Most of the people who are terrorized or brutalized in school restrooms are simply guilty of being outnumbered by the dysfunctional children of assholes like you.
