A young man's parents are suing because their son was required by his school to share locker rooms--and as a junior, this means showers too--with a biological female who, for reasons known to her, decided she was "male" enough to use the boys' locker room. Now of course, I don't know her motives, but I know that my response would have been (and would be today) about the same.
And along those lines, those who genuinely do suffer from this mental illness need to be treated compassionately as well--by not opening up the opposite sex's restrooms and locker rooms to them. Like it or not, this girl is mentally ill according to DSM-5, and it doesn't do her any good to be exposed to the catcalls of her peers calling her a "freak", "pervert", "slut", and the like. Never mind what happens to all participants when some boy's body does, or does not, respond to her exposed female form.
Isn't high school tough enough without this kind of silliness?
