    crossed their tiny minds that many of these kids come from homes where they have siblings of both genders and therefore share a bathroom with both genders on a daily basis???

    And if they don't have gender differing siblings, don't most of them have parents of opposite genders???

    Have their roofs fallen in on anyone, yet?

    Didn't think so.

    Sharing a bathroom with someone of a "different" gender, whether you can tell or not, is hardly going to end the world as we know it.  And if it does...perhaps the world as we know it needs ending.

        sigh.

        One day, one person, at a time...we can change the world.
        And so it goes.

        Another really good diary, Robyn, thank you.
