A high school in rural Thailand has given its many transgender students their own restroom, the BBC reports. Situated between the boys' and girls' rooms, the room has a half male/half female figure painted on the door. Inside, effeminate teenage boys preen. As many as 20% of the school's male students would rather be girls, the headmaster estimates.
The school official said he has known many such students over the years and they always remained the same into adulthood. "We're not boys, so we don't want to use the boys' toilet," said one student. "We want them to know we are transsexuals." Thailand is famously tolerant of transgender men, and the boys are treated normally by staff and other students alike.
