A San Diego high school has come under scrutiny after parents learned that a transgender student, born female, has been using the boy’s locker room.
“My son came home from school and told me there was a girl using the boys’ locker room,” said Holly Franz during a recent school board meeting. “This is someone he’s known for years and always has been a girl. My son was very upset by this, and I called the principal.”
California law allows students who classify as transgender or gender nonconforming to ignore their birth sex and use the bathrooms or locker rooms they’re most comfortable with. While Franz understands the law, she suggests the school install curtains or other means to help ensure student privacy. (Los Angeles Times)
