Article should not say wren is "actually a girl" he is a boy. Period. A transboy is still a boy.

I agree, but I'm going to give the author credit for consistently using the correct pronoun.

Oh, lol, the bathroom issue Again
What do you imagine these female bathrooms to be like? openplan or something? They have private cubicles. In some places there are unisex shared facilities and at home don't you use the same one as women/girls in your house?

Back on topic, wow, how brave ...I'll use brave in lieu of foolish, although I suppose age 11 might be easier than when in the heightened emotion (and so bullying) of the teens, classmates should be used to her by then
