Court awards ‘trans’ student $75,000: allow boys into girls’ bathroom

A court in Maine has ordered the Orono School District to pay $75,000 to a homosexual advocacy group and allow self-identified “transgender” students to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex, ending a nearly seven-year legal battle that began after school officials tried to safely accommodate a boy living as a girl who was bullied in the girls’ restroom, reports LifeSiteNews.

Wyatt Maines, now 17, began living as a girl in 3rd grade with the apparent blessing of the Orono School District, which allowed him to go by the name “Nicole” and use facilities meant for females even though he is biologically male. (He has since made the name change legal.) But after a bullying incident in the girls’ bathroom at Asa Adams Elementary School led the district to walk back its liberal policy for Maines’ own protection, requiring him to use single-stall restrooms normally reserved for staff and assigning him a between-class adult minder to ensure his safety, he sued the school district with the help of his family and the Boston-based Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) legal group.

Maines and his attorneys said that by singling him out for added protection, the district brought him unwanted attention and made him feel like an outsider at the school.

“An adult would stand 15 feet away from me wherever I went,” Maines told the Bangor Daily News. “When I would go to the bathroom, they would follow me. When I would go to the lunchroom, they’d follow me. It was like I had an invisible string attached to me and they were on the other end. It was ridiculous.”

But Orono School District attorney Melissa Hewey said the extra supervision was provided at the request of Maines’ parents, Kelly and Wayne Maines.
