    Pretty dumb scenario, innit?

    Some would, even if the only thing they got out of it was a chance to see some naked girls. Granted these days the internet and it's massive porn collection may prevent some of that, but still...

    That may just mean hanging out more with gay people. The price of entering heaven may be: Hang out with gay people a while so as to have the reports and "evidence" ready.

    She may pretend to be transgendered just so as to gain access to the boys shower room. In such a case she would probably be welcomed.

    She may really be a transgendered boy. In such a case he can shower with the rest of the boys.

    Either way she/he can access the boys shower room.

    That is not accurate. Sexual identity and sexual orientation are not the same thing. For example, a transsexual FTM could be gay, also.

    As far as the OP, that is absolutely ridiculous. Firstly, most transsexuals are totally uncomfortable changing in ANY locker room. I universally write gym notes so that a transsexual can change in the nurse's office, in private. Secondly, this is beyond bathroom issues which are nearly completely clandestine. The level of discomfort from others, in this situation, must also be considered.

    As no disrespect... as I remember, you have a tight reign on your boys.

    Not at all. They are out all the time with friends, and they all go to a large public high school. They are all also active in sports teams and go away to camps for 3 weeks every summer. Trust me, they socialize even more than I did at their ages.

    They know what it means to be gay. I don't believe any of them know what it means to be transgender. To a point someone made earlier (Deuce maybe) the probability of a high school boy letting it out that he's transgender is very very low. In my kids' school (we live in a pretty wealthy town, and it is also pretty conservative) the probability is probably even lower.
