Restroom rights has been a sensitive ongoing topic amongst. Now there is a Pearland mom who is gaining national attention for her fight against the local school board to allow her transgender child access to the girl’s bathroom.
Kim Shappley told KPRC Local 2 that her son has been identifying as a girl since he was 3 years old. Kim wants people to know that she isn’t fighting for bathrooms; she is fighting for her child.
Pearland ISD released a statement that read, “Pearland ISD’s stance on transgender students remains children whose parents declare them transgender must go to the bathroom for the sex indicated on their birth certificate. Such students have also been allowed to use a private bathroom (such as in the nurse’s station) if they are so inclined. All Pearland ISD kindergarten classrooms have a private, gender-neutral bathroom within the classroom for student use.”
