Abstract

Schools have become ground zero for clashes over transgender rights, and critics are denouncing academic institutions — and more recently, the Obama administration — for supporting transgender students in their right to use restrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity. This article responds to the seven most common claims made by critics and explains why these arguments are problematic.
