Well I don't know if you heard what I did, but from what I understand women's bathrooms have couches, televisions, a cornucopia of fragrant soaps, and other luxurious amenities. The men's restrooms are full of urine on the floor because apparently most men can't aim to save their lives. I'm just trying to get in on some of that women's restroom action.
I don't know the reason we started seperating boys and girls. The only logical reason I can come up with is to prevent sex, pregnancy, and intimate contact in post-pubesent kids. I know that doesn't apply to 6 year olds, but keeping it consistent would make sense. If that is the case, I don't know what to do with gays. The only solution would be to have a few of those unisex handicap bathrooms and have the "others" use that bathroom solo.
Straight/Pre-Sexual-Awareness Boys room
Straight/Pre-Sexual-Awareness Girls room
Handicap/Anyone Solo Room
Or just put them all in one damn room, no descrimination.
I thought it was because of menstruation.

I posed a similar question to my wife about student exchanges. She's a language teacher and her school (HS) is very active with language exchanges. These are long (2-3 week) trips where students spend this time with a counterpart in another country, living with them as if they were part of the family. the trip is reciprocated, usually in the same school year. As SOP, the school must send at least 1 teacher of each sex as chaperon on the trip (they have a T/S ratio minimum but at the very least there must be 1 teacher of each sex). As a result it's not uncommon that they will have to send 1 male teacher even if a single boy is going out of a group of 20. this is difficult as they only have 2 male teachers in the school (in languages), so they go on lots of trips.
Well, one is gay (of the men). So, I asked her what the purpose of having at least 1 person of each sex going was - assumedly it's if there is a student that has "personal" problems - e.g. let's say a male student has a "male" problem - having a female teacher attend to you would be awkward to say the least. So how does that work if the chaperon is gay? the underlying assumptions are now incorrect.
While the parent's suggested it, the following don't make a 18 month boy a transgender or gay:
-playing with girl toys
-wearing girl clothes
-liking the color pink
Society a big external influence that steers boys towards being transgender who like those things. I'm not saying that being gay or transgender is a decision that someone makes. I am saying that there are a lot of variables that help develop many of your preferences including biological ones. Society doesn't always help. It sounds like the parents helped guide and encourage it when the child was most impressionable. The child's path might be set in stone now, I don't know. What was possibly a phase could now be permanent.
He's a student and she's a stay at home mom with almost half a dozen kids!
Special needs kids on top of it... Doesn't that get extra $$?

The way bigger question here is wtf are the parents doing with their kids' hair?
no doubt.. seriously..? What parent does that to their kid? It reminds me of that movie Big Daddy or something with Adam Sandler.. where the kid wants to be named Frankenstein and wears clothes like this:

good article for people here to read. not too sciencey for a legit scientific paper. thanks for posting.
also, nice to see that the scientific literature backs up the drivel and bs i spew out both ends
finally, its interesting to see that they threw in a mention of le vay 1991[sciencemag.org] which, to my knowledge, was the first study done on dimorphisms between (presumed) homo (and one bi) and (presumed) hetero men with (presumed hetero) women as a pseudo-control. it made waves because it found a brain region in homos that was much more similar to women than hetero men. a few fun facts about that paper: 1) he didnt replicate the results of some previous studies which showed dimorphism in other brain areas. 2) rather than asking a question, he predicted what the result would be (though he did blind himself during the study). 3) the homos all died of aids. only a few of the presumed heteros did.
to be fair, he did realize that 3 could skew the results and compared aids-homos to aids-heteros an aids-heteros to heteros who died for other reasons (he curiously forgets to mention p value here). however, he forgot to adjust his pvalues for multiple comparisons when he made his conclusion...
its a good read and a nicely written paper, despite the critiques --also fun reads.
