"We will continue to work with our students and families who request special accommodations for a variety of reasons", he said. And for decades, it has prohibited gender-based discrimination at penalty of losing all federal funding.

New Jersey law protects people from discrimination based on gender identity, and advocates for transgender men and women believe that applies to access to bathrooms of their choosing. On Monday, a federal judge issued a ruling to stand in place as the case gets worked out in court: Juliet and the other plaintiffs may use the bathrooms for their chosen genders, according to The Washington Post.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement saying the Departments of Justice and Education are withdrawing "the prior guidance" to educational institutions as it "did not contain sufficient legal analysis or explain how the interpretation was consistent with the language of Title IX". "The rescission of guidance by the Trump administration can not change that". As a result, a federal court in August 2016 issued a nationwide injunction barring the Department from enforcing a portion of its application.

Finally, the state should have very little say about a person's gender identity it is already illegal for the state to dictate people's religion-why should gender identity be any different?

The new guidance released Wednesday rescinds the May 2016 guidance as well as a January 2015 letter to Emily Prince from James Ferg-Cadima, who was then the acting deputy assistant secretary for policy in the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.

Grimm is a Virginia student who sued his school district after it adopted a policy similar to the one at issue in the suburban Pittsburgh district. All three are seniors at Pine-Richland High School in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, and all three have received hormone treatment or therapy.

"That means the guidance was in effect for the final two weeks of school here in Paulding County", he said. Now students are required to use restrooms that match the sex they were assigned at birth. "[T] he Plaintiffs have shown a reasonable likelihood of success on the merits of their claim that the District's enforcement of Resolution 2 as to their use of common school restrooms does not afford them equal protection of the law as guaranteed to them by the Fourteenth Amendment", Hornak wrote.

Individual schools will remain free to let transgender students use the bathrooms with which they are most comfortable.

Adolescence is already a confusing time for many students, however if you do not identify with your external gender it can be even more hard.
