Transgender Children Caught in Middle of Bathroom Debate

At least 11 states are fighting back against transgender bathrooms of choice use required at federally funded public schools.

Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Louisiana, Utah, Georgia, Tennessee, Maine and Arizona are suing the Obama administration over the bathroom issue.

California educators said they had a state directive two years ago to allow students to use the bathroom of their chosen gender.

Dos Pueblos High School principal Shawn Carey said by coincidence they just received a gender neutral bathroom sign in the mail today.

They ordered it last year. Carey said it will replace a girls bathroom sign in the center of campus later this week.

Despite access, Blue Nebeker avoids public restrooms altogether.

The transgender prom queen at Santa Barbara High would rather wait to be home to use the bathroom.

Blue’s parents don’t understand the fear critics have.

Joanna Nebeker said she has never heard of a transgender student molesting a child in a school bathroom.

But, Dean Martin called it a morally wrong that boys and girls are being subjected to people in bathrooms meant for them.

Carey said. “I am please to be at the forefront, I know there is a lot of controversy.”

She called it a civil rights issue and said education is needed to help people tolerate change.
