This is not about pronouns. It's about people minding their own business and letting others live as they please.

It would be nice if it was that simple; however, by returning to the same school she was asking those young kids to process something that they may not have been ready to process. Look, I know the life of a transgendered is difficult - but a little recognition as to some of the burden such a change puts on other people would be appreciated.

We don't live in a vacuum here - our choices impact other people.

These "mind your own business" advocates are all about privacy when it comes to drug fueled group sex in a hotel room but suddenly it "takes a village" when we've single mothers with 8 kids that have to be fed, clothed, schooled, housed and eventually jailed - or we have to dish out free health care to some AIDS wracked post-modern artist who spent his life insulting middle class working people only to turn around and demand those same people to pay his one million dollar health care bill.

Now I don't care what the government does with my taxes and I'm glad these people get help (it's better than blowing up Arabs) but you'll have to pardon me if I don't buy the whole "privacy" line of bullshit anymore.
