The ACLU is teaming up with a transgender 16-year-old to sue his high school over its bathroom rules.

Virginia student Gavin Grimm isn't allowed to use the men's bathroom at his school. He informed his school that he's a boy and was originally given permission by his principal to use the men's bathroom. But now the school board has said he can't anymore after people complained. Doesn't it seem like school boards are just constantly trolling?

Now poor Gavin usually waits all day to go to the bathroom after he leaves school. That is horrible! Can high school authority figures stay out of people's bathroom business? And that includes making almost-adults ask permission from a teacher to use the toilet, which is also ridiculous and happens at most high schools. Like, what would happen if everyone just let each other use bathrooms as they please? Oh, nothing?
