In Maine, some schools have already been accommodating transgender students, to make sure that all students feel comfortable and welcomed in their school. For Maine public schools that haven't had a policy in place to include transgender students, that will now change. In a sweeping directive from the federal government, public schools must evaluate their bathrooms to allow transgender students access, and to offer private restrooms if they are uncomfortable using gender specific ones. Federal money is also at stake if schools do not comply.

This is a heated national issue, not just for restrooms in schools, the topic is being addressed just about everywhere.


As long as the rest room is clean, I don't care what the door says.
