“Where should a transgender schoolgirl be allowed to pee? To some, this may sound like a minor, insignificant question, but not to Nicole Maines, a 15-year-old transgender girl who attended Maine public schools. Born a boy biologically, Maines now self-identifies as a girl, dressing in girls’ clothing and sporting a typical 15-year-old girl’s hair and makeup.

[I]t’s imperative that courts like the one in Maine see cases like Nicole Maines’s for what they are: acts of discrimination no different from those that prohibited black people from entering white bathrooms until the 1960s.”
