Transgender Bathroom

President Obama has sent a notification to all the States that public* schools should allow transgender students to use bathrooms (restrooms) matching their gender identity. In other words if a boy thinks he is a girl in his mind he should be allowed to use the girls bathroom. And vice versa. The officials say a student's gender identity as the student's sex for the purpose of enforcing this guidance.
 
It is only a “guidance” and not a “law”. In other words if you do not comply with the guidance, funding for your school will be cut off.
 
Mr. Obama wants to make sure transgender students enjoy a supportive and nondiscriminatory school environment. Many states are objecting to this. But LGBT groups praised this announcement. What if a creep posing as a transgender enters a girls bathroom?
 
Someone has filed a case in the Supreme Court and it has taken up this case for hearing,

President Obama put a man in the girls bathroom.
 
* In USA, public schools mean government schools that operate from money received from the government,

  1. I don't think it is a good idea to allo a man into a woman's bathroom just because he 'thinks' that he is a woman. Separate bathroom for them?

    1. Thanks for your comments Sandhya. I think you have a point. But then, there has to be 4 different bathrooms. Boy, Girl, Boy who thinks he is a girl, Girl who thinks she is a boy.

    1. Thanks for your comments DA. Come to think of it, there should be a 5th bathroom for the people who are neither this nor that.

  3. This might encourage more transgenders to go to schools with others. So I feel it may not be a bad move.

  4. Oh! What if a boy who is a transgender goes to a boys' bathroom? I don't think he will have any problem as he is physically not different than them???

    1. Thanks for your comments Sindhu. That is the point Sindhu. But this individual freedom has gone too far here. A transgender boy is physically not different from a boy. But in his mind, he is a girl and so afraid to go boys bathroom. President Obama wants to put this boy in a girls bathroom.

  5. Its weird to think even,one's physicality should be the criteria, not what you think.

  6. Interesting! If we started implementing ideas based on what "we think in our mind", its going to be chaotic. I suppose the intention is noble; but it may lead to misuse and confusion.

  7. I am sure that there will b a lots of problem related to implementating rhe idea, also misuse of also... Where normal boys could use this guidance to enter into a boys washroom and vice versa... Having said that, I am glad that the government thought about it and are trying to take steps...

    Thanks for sharing !☺

    1. Thanks for your comments Satya. Government wants to do the right thing. But the implementation is wrong.

  8. Perhaps the solution lies in providing couple of restrooms for only one person of any gender to get in and lock and withdrawing the notification. As of now, we have only male and female restrooms.The suggestion would remove the difficulty faced by some.

    1. Thanks for your comments Mr. KP. Your idea is good. However, if government is trying to accommodate every individual's request, where is the end? For example, tomorrow, religious zealots may want separate bathrooms for them.

  9. Happy New Year SG. Though it is a noble though I am sure it will be misused by many unfortunately.

    1. Thanks for your comments Harini. Welcome back. Long time no see. I agree with you.

  10. Transgenders are also human beings.Their needs should be properly acceded to.But as Satya said, possibility of misuse is there. A grownup boy may claim,"I have a girl's mind." And if any time he exhibits boyish nature again he may claim that things have changed in him.So better to have both the kinds of washrooms for both the types of transgenders. Interesting post indeed.

    2. What you said is cent % correct,no doubt, but the Earth and resources belong to them also, a few have captured a major portion though. SG, I said so because transgenders may not be allowed by both male or female.

  13. They should maybe have a separate bathroom like they have for family. They should have a separate bathroom for trans folks too. Having them use ladies' bathroom is not a good idea.

  14. If there are altogether 4 diff kind of bathrooms then I think there should b no prob? But an entry in girls bathroom becoz he thinks he is a girl or vice versa not a great idea IMO

  15. This is really a good move but he must think about the right implementation...

  16. While the thought is a good one but the implementation of the same would be laced with issues and problems of great magnitude!!

  17. Like many good ideas, this may have it's share of execution problems

  18. "President Kennedy wanted to put a man on the moon.

    President Obama put a man in the girls bathroom."

    I have not laughed this hard in a lot of time!

    This is a very populist guideline by Sh. Obama. More like a shot at creating a needless "legacy". Creeps will definitely misuse it.
