NY Times: Can a Boy Wear a Skirt to School?

This New York Times article explores high school dress codes and gender expression. Warning: As expected, this reporter is not so great about discussing gender identity.

  1. I donno, I think the reporter was generally neutral, a bit distant and kind of felt like a national geographic story, but you can't expect in depth gender discussions from a reporter with probably zero background.

    Really most of the opinion came in the form of quotes from various viewpoints, or ideas directly off those quotes. This was not an op-ed, so really it had to have no opinion from the writer.

    I think it's actually a good sign of a more open dialog. I mean they did use the term gender-variance, rather then assuming everyone who does not conform to gender roles "has" GID, that they want to be the other sex, and will want HRT and SRS.
