Md. county executive asks school board to reconsider transgender guidelines

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — County Executive Steve Schuh is asking the Anne Arundel Board of Education to reconsider allowing transgender students to use bathrooms of their gender identity.

Media outlets report that last week, the school system sent a set of guidelines to school administrators stating that students should be allowed to use bathrooms of their gender identity. It also said students on field trips should be allowed to sleep in the common space of their gender identity.

Schuh wrote in a letter to the school board that the guidelines infringed on the rights of students who might be uncomfortable sharing bathrooms with transgender students.

Rights of the majority will always be protected, but this is about the dignity of the people in the minority. If a cis-gendered person has to share a bathroom with a transgender person, it may be uncomfortable for them, but it doesn't demean them in the same way as denying someone the use of the facilities.
