    Even if that were true, how does that make death threats a reasonable expectation as a result?

    My solution would be to wait until they're adults who can make their own decisions. Kids are mean enough without having a reason to pick on someone.
    The outcome for them isn't as good if they have to wait until adulthood to address this problem because their bodies have matured in the wrong gender and they have to unlearn gendered behaviors. Kids don't have a problem when their classmates in transgender or gay. Instead, it is adults who make an issue and cause problems for transgender children and teens.

    It was kids. You have some, right?

    As far as credibility, LOL! Like that makes a difference here.

    So you want them to stop being what they were born as by all available means as soon as possible. What happens if you are wrong or they change their minds?

    I don't think this issue can be resolved for children short of providing genuinely one-person bathrooms.

    These children were born trans and they should be allowed to be who they are instead of who you think they are or who someone wants them to be. How much do you know about human sexuality and gender?

    They do change their minds occasionally and they are guided by a team of Drs and psychologists. Transgendered children and teens aren't making medical decisions by themselves, just as transgendered adults are not, despite what you appear to believe or what you have been told.

    The problem is not the transgendered children and teens but adults who seem to want to make a political and social issue of this situation. Socially conservative republicans discovered a new minority to attack 2 years ago and now they are blaming everyone but themselves for the problems that they caused by trying to politicize a medical issue as a way to stir the partisan pot among their ignorant voters. Trans people have been using the bathroom of their gender for years without an issue but now the GOP decided to make them a target by politicizing it.

    The fact that most of these conservatives forget the trans guys exist and if they are forced to use the female bathroom of their choice then perverts won't even be required to dress in drag before they use the women's bathroom claiming to be transguys. I've known a few f trans guys and I don't want them in the lady's bathroom. They may not have a penis but they are definitely men and they act like it.

    No no no NO... threatening to kill people is fine, it is a kid going to the bathroom that is the real threat!

    Nobody... everybody at the school knows already. I work in a high school with transgender kids... (about 7 or 8?) ... nobody cares. The kids use whatever bathroom or locker room. The girls are by far the most accepting. Two boys that now wear school skirts and use the girls dressing room, etc. hang out with the other girls all day, giggle and run around being girls... I am sure that there are a few bigots that care but they don't ever say anything.
