As from the BBC news article: Thai school offers transsexual toilet …
Kampang is proud of its toilets. Spotless, and surrounded by flowering tropical plants, they have won national awards for cleanliness.
But there is something else about them too. Between the girls’ toilet and the boys’, there is one signposted with a half-man, half-woman figure in blue and red.
This is the transsexual toilet, and outside, in front of the mirrors, some decidedly girly-looking teenage boys preen their hair and apply face cream.
The headteacher, Sitisak Sumontha, estimates that in any year between 10% and 20% of his boys consider themselves to be transgender – boys who would rather be girls.
Now, this makes a lot of sense to me! Equality in all forms, shapes, and sizes. I wonder if the BEE definition can be amended to include transsexuals?
Then, on a totally different note, this news story violates the inverted pyramid manner of writing news stories!
