Petition update

Victory!

Dec 10, 2014 — Today I was called down to the office to talk to my principal. She said she'd just gotten off the phone with the superintendent who told her that I should be free to use whatever bathroom I feel comfortable in. Just like that, in an instant, everything has changed. I won.
I can only hope that this precedent will be followed by administration in relation to any other trans person who comes to my school, and boy do i hope that if it's not, the student being oppressed will speak up against these orders and cite my situation as support for theirs.
Thank you all so much for supporting and encouraging me. Without you, no one would have listened to me. Just remember, I am one student in one school in one school district. There are so many other kids out there in the same position as me, or even more discriminatory and damaging ones. We have won what is only one battle of the war. Now get out there, and keep advocating for equal rights for everyone!
