Maine’s highest court: Transgender student’s rights were violatedRead the rest HERE. You have to read it to believe that this is the sorry condition into which America has descended by leaps and bounds.
Nicole Maines’ school was wrong to require the fifth-grader to use a unisex bathroom, justices rule in a historic gender-identity decision that could be a model for other states.
The rights of a transgender girl from Orono were violated when school administrators made her use a staff bathroom at her elementary school instead of the girls’ restroom, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled Thursday.
The ruling is the first in which a state supreme court has affirmed a transgender person’s right to equal access to restrooms in places of public accommodation.
Lawyers representing Nicole Maines, who is now 16, said the decision could lay a foundation for other states’ courts that are facing questions about the emerging rights of people who identify as the opposite of their birth gender....
BTW, the court's ruling was 5-1. The decision wasn't even close.
UPDATE, FROM PASTORIUS -
Nicole's father, Wayne Maines, is a Transgender Activist and Huffington Post contributor.
I'm guessing there will be a lot more to dig up on this guy.
UPDATE - Wayne Maines has a Phd. from West Virginia University.
I want to find out what field his Phd. is in.
IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO GET A HOLD OF HIS THESIS, PLEASE HELP.
UPDATE - In this video, Wayne Maines claimes, with a smirk, that he is "a former Republican."
UPDATE - Here, Maines claims he was "a Ronald Reagan Conservative," and that he is still a Conservative.
If that's the case, then why does he smirk in the above video?
UPDATE - I think this is his Doctoral Thesis, published in book form.
