Gender neutral signs posted outside bathrooms flushes out debate over transgender toilet access, as the issue spreads nationwide.
The feds are telling schools to let transgender students use bathrooms and locker rooms that are "consistent with their gender identity." This does not wipe out other laws, but since Title IX is seated into federal education funding, the implied threat is to follow the federal guidelines or risk losing those funds.

Haha, I thought I was the only one who tried to sneak into the other locker room. In seventh grade, i had the idea that if I told the school I was gay, they would let me change in the girl's locker room. I wasn't gay, I just wanted to strip down to my underwear with a bunch of 13 year old girls. In the boys room, we had the old gym teacher walking to his office in the middle of the locker room. Thats how you know the school is old, when the gym teacher has to walk past kids in their underwear to get to his office. I always thought that the best job on earth, is if you are a gay female gym teacher who has to walk through the licker room. Lol i cant imagine you would ever take a sick day!
