Police investigate assault of transgender teen in high school bathroom

SAN FRANCISCO - Police on Tuesday were investigating reports of a brutal assault of a transgender teen who was using a high school bathroom in a San Francisco Bay Area suburb.

The 15-year-old student told officers he was leaving a boy's bathroom at Hercules High School on Monday when three teenage boys pushed him inside a handicapped stall and physically and sexually assaulted him, Hercules police Detective Connie Van Putten said.

...

A new California law allows students in public schools to use the bathrooms that match the gender with which they identify, and the teen had opted to use the boy's bathroom.

Van Putten said the attackers reportedly made disparaging remarks to the student, allowing police to treat the incident as a hate crime.

4. This story made me shiver. Literally. And it's common. And it's terrifying.

My very closest friend is transgendered, and an ex-Marine who served with extreme valor in Gulf War 1. Literal chest full of medals.

Now she is who she is and is married to a wonderful guy; the ceremony was by her mom, a Methodist minister. It was beautiful, and about 17 years ago, and legal.
