    Bull****.. Maybe not wearing a dress to "identify" a girl, but come on man? Boys and girls don't need to be "taught" anything about gender. We figure it out all by ourselves.

    Why do we make people all shower in one big group?
    Space, construction costs, team building, ability to easily supervise, a number of reasons. Btw, converting to individual showers would be very expensive.

    It's a loada crap.

    As you both say, the real issue here is whether to allow a transgendered kid to play on the other sex's sports team. All this talk of locker rooms, bathroom, etc., is nothing but hysteria intended to cloud the issue.

    Myself, I think the real issue is a valid one. Let's say, for example, a 6'4", 220lb. transgendered boy wants to play on the girl's basketball team. First of all, wouldn't that give an unfair advantage to that team over other girl's teams that don't have a similar big boy on their team? And what about the basketball loving girl who gets bumped off the team by the transgender? Is it fair to her?

    I think it's a bad idea.

    montgomery county maryland has eliminated all references to christian holidays

    so now there will be winter break, not christmas break

    spring break, not easter break

    and the muslims are the ones being blamed since they wanted their holiday also marked on the calendar

    No religious holidays on Maryland district's calendar - CNN.com

    while it's off-topic on this thread, I agree with the school holidays being renamed, instead of having religious names. I think it's a shame they did this just because Muslims asked for their holiday to be on the calendar, but I think all public schools should do this.
