Nicole Maines A Maine judge says a school was wrong to bar a boy dressed up as a girl from using the girl’s restroom.

Nicole Maines, now 16, was in the fifth grade when school administrators ordered him to use a unisex restroom after another student objected.

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled Thursday that transgender persons (not just school kids) should have access to any public accommodations of their choosing.

This means that any male who believes he is a female has the right to share the women’s restroom at a restaurant even if he is not wearing female attire.

Boy suspended for kissing girl

A 6-year-old Colorado boy was suspended from school for 2 days for kissing a female classmate on the hand.

The national media dragged the school district for burdening first-grader Hunter Yelton with a “sexual harassment” infraction on his school records. In response to the public outcry, the district downgraded the sexual harassment charge to misconduct.

The boy’s mother, Jennifer Saunders, expressed outrage at the school district’s decision to suspend her son.

“He is 6 years old, and that is absolutely ridiculous for him to have ‘sexual harassment’ on his record, even it is (only on the district’s) record,” she said.

But the girl’s mother stands behind the school’s decision to suspend the boy and to label him a sexual predator.

Brianna Hill

A Michigan woman is furious with her daughter’s school after the staff used ice cream sandwiches to treat the girl’s broken arm.

Shatia Hill says her 7-year-old daughter, Brianna, fell off the monkey bars at school and broke her arm. She said the school’s staff did not have ice to treat the swelling so they reached for whatever they had at hand — ice cream sandwiches.

“I have no idea why they thought that was acceptable,” Shatia told Fox 2’s Andrea Isom. “I mean, honestly, it was totally bad judgement on everybody in the school. When I call the school, they’re like, ‘Oh I wasn’t there.’ ‘Oh I wasn’t there.’ Everyone wants to throw each other under the bus instead of taking responsibility,” Shatia adds.
