> What would transgendered individuals be doing in an elementary school lavatory? Can you, as a self-proclaimed transgendered individual, offer any insight?
I don't think gender is actually chrystalized until you're at least a teenager. While you shouldn't be too strict with gender or non-conformity because quite frequently gender non-conforming behavior such as a boy wanting to wear pink or play with dolls is a phase that they'll grow out of.
I think in terms of what's healthy for young childen in terms of parenting, is just accepting and letting them make their own decisions without being too harsh, being strict or stringent with gender norms at an age where gender devience and exploration is common may actually help contribute to people becoming transgender.
That being said, I don't think the label of 'trans' should be given to the child at an age where kids have no idea what gender is. Now, if the child displays persistent distress, that has been ongoing then there may be a case of having them transition in their teens, but only if.

What's so wrong with The Doctor? I mean, he lies quite a bit about being a real doctor, but I do think quite a bit of times when someone asks a question unless it is a rhetorical question then they expect an answer of some sort and I was giving him an answer to the question that he asked.
