Did you really just say unisex bathrooms are the answer?

The sheer hypocrisy is gonna keep me
til the NCAA tourney starts.
We have heard from some around here the cries of reverse discrimination, and how we can never move past race issues with the likes of Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton and how race needs to be ignored to advance past racism. Why is it that these self same people can't embrace the idea when it comes to gender? Who gives a damn. If this kid and the kid's parents are happy with the transgender decision, then is that anybody else's business?
Way to many people, including a few around here, seem way to concerned with this kid's genitalia. It is really creepy and disgusting.
Unisex restrooms are the answer. Or perhaps a selection, "boys", "girls", & "undecided" should cover it.
All this thread really shows is that way to many people are way to concerned with other people's gender and gender identities. Do you think these "abnormal" kids are carrying some kind of "confusion contagion"? What, are they gonna infect your kids and make them "abnormal" too?
Also, a 6 year old child cannot be happy with a transgender decision. A 6 year old child cannot appreciate what being transgender means. As for seeking "professional' help, the article is quite vague...likely intentionally. They could have seen a guidance counselor, child psychologist, school psychologist, hypnotist, lawyer, brick mason or rock drummer for all we know.
You cannot chose to raise your child as transgender. It is not the parent's decision, just like it isn't their decision to raise their child to be gay. I'm pretty sure you believe being gay is not a choice, correct? You're tripping over yourself with logical inconsistencies. I suggest taking a step back, have a glass of wine, and come back with a clear head.
