The majority is inconvenienced once or twice, not their whole life. They are not asked to wear clothing they don't feel comfortable in, to affect mannerisms they are not comfortable with, to use facilities they are not comfortable with, and to present themselves as someone they are not. We're not just talking about public restrooms, gbaji.

It's all well and good to say that we're infringing his/her right to be a unique snowflake or something, but the problems don't stop at the grade school level. What happens when it's the locker room, or the showers, or sports? Expecting the whole rest of the world to make way for your own personal preferences is a bit silly. We have social norms for a reason, and fair or not, it's a **** of a lot easier to find ways to adjust to them, rather than make everyone adjust the other direction. This kid is going to encounter problems with his desire to be female for his entire life. Better he learn that now and figure out ways to deal with it, than run headfirst into block after block after block.

If we change society, everyone is better for it. We've done it for race. We can do it for this, too.
