The Chicago-based 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that a transgender student has the right to use the bathroom that corresponds with his gender identity under federal law.

In a unanimous opinion, the court upheld a lower district court order allowing Ashton Whitaker, a 17-year-old senior at Tremper High School in Kenosha, Wis., to use the boys’ bathroom despite the school's claim that Whitaker’s presence in the boys’ bathroom would invade the privacy rights of his male classmates.

In delivering the opinion of the court, Judge Ann Claire Williams said the school district failed to provide any evidence of how the preliminary injunction would harm the school or any of its students or parents.

“The harms identified by the School District are all speculative and based upon conjecture, whereas the harms to Ash are well‐documented and supported by the record,” she said.

If this person presents as a boy, then they should be allowed to use the boys' bathroom.   This is in no way the same as the Elliot Cope case.

The problem comes when it's time to change for PE.   Which locker room does he use?   

I do have to say, though, this "guy" is more girly than girly girl Elliot Cope.   Are trans men racing to be the most effeminate?
