Abstract

Various state legislatures have passed a law that prohibits transgender individuals from using certain public toilets. The legislation has been controversial. The Supreme Court has agreed to place this issue on its docket (Gloucester County School Board vs. G.G.). This article summarizes that case and examines the issue of the use of public toilets by transgenders and applies logic and ethical theory to arrive at a resolution of the problem that does not involve the violation of anyone’s rights.

Keywords: transgender, LGBT, toilet, restroom, rent-seeking, Supreme Court, G.G. vs. Gloucester County School Board
