A male-born transgender student was caught using the women’s bathroom at a local NC College by a female security officer and was escorted from campus and asked not to return until further notice. The suspension was lifted the next day, but he was told by the dean that he must bring medical proof that he’s a female in order for the school to allow him to use female restrooms.
This student is now claiming harassment and discrimination and wants an apology from the school for the suspension and better policies toward transgender students. But the school says they’ve reviewed their policies and they are in compliance with current laws.
The attorney for the transgender student plans to file a complaint with the NC Board of Education. Protests are also being held by other students today over this incident.
In my view this college did the right thing. If you are born male then you should use the male restroom or at the very least a gender-neutral restroom. And likewise for those born-female.
