It is the idiot school officials who deny him the use of the male restrooms. I seriously doubt that ANY of the other male students will object. I would simply use the male restroom;and,ignore those idiots. Male restrooms do have toilets too. Already,many restrooms are being designated as unisex.

I am a transgendered person and at 40 years old, i am sick of society telling people they cant do this and cant do that. I had a recent (to this post) incident that was brought up from a local Toronto swimming pool who pulled me aside about being in the womens pool changeroom. I have lived as female for the past 5 years 24/7/365/366, and have few problems. We have to get over this barbarian way of segregating people. I applaud James for this issue and its great to see that as of Nov 2012 after this story aired on City Tv that i saw, things changed. Of course it was probably the school decision only based on embarrassment being in the media and the worry of a big legal fight.
