My daughter has had three trans people in her year at school for four years. She has asked me why are they allowed to wear whatever they like while everyone else has to wear a uniform? Why are they allowed to miss so much school all the time? Why, when everyone has to do projects, do they always do projects on trans issues ? My observation is that this arrangement has created a high level of resentment from the rest of the students who don’t have an issue with the gender identities of these three, but question why they get so much special treatment.
[*Moderator's note: I'm curious about whether these three students are males in an all-girls school, i.e. transgirls / nonbinary; or females, i.e. transboys / nonbinary? Feel free to email / submit a clarification.]
