You should not be expelled, kicked out of class, held after school, treated differently or
punished in any way because of your gender expression. You have the right to wear clothes that
align with your gender identity. When it comes to your gender identity, the U.S. Constitution
(under the Fourteenth Amendment) and Title IX of the 1964 Civil Rights Act provides you with
protections. In fact, there is a case that says that a public school’s failure to protect students
from harassment and discrimination based on “cross-gender” dress is a violation of the Equal
Protection Clause. There are also some state laws and local ordinances that require schools to
protect students if they are being discriminated against or harassed simply because they dress
differently from traditional ideas of “gender-appropriate” clothes.

In ninth grade, Joshua began wearing skirts, nail polish, and makeup. He insists
on being called “Amanda” instead of “Joshua” and being referred to as “she”
instead of “he.” Some students are diligent about observing the requests, but
others respond with bullying behavior, including insults, physical violence, and
threats. “Joshua’s” teachers wonder if they are obligated to refer to “him” as
“Amanda” and whether doing so would be in “his” best interest. The gym teacher
has requested guidance as to which locker room “Joshua” can use and which
would be most safe. “Joshua” has also asked to use the women’s bathroom, but
other students have complained. The principal wonders if forcing “him” to stop
this behavior would be a legal and effective way to address the bullying and
other issues. There has been no communication from “Joshua’s” parents.
“Joshua” begins to withdraw socially and show signs of depression, and “his”
academic performance slips. The principal calls together the student support
team to determine the school’s responsibilities and options for addressing the
bullying issues, meeting “Joshua’s” facility needs, and addressing “his” mental and
emotional health concerns.

For many young people, socially transitioning from one gender to another may begin at school.
To help those around you better understand how to address you, it’s worth taking some time to
inform friends and teachers of your desire to be referred to by your new name.
