KENOSHA, Wis. (WTMJ) – A transgender Wisconsin high school senior can now use the restroom of his choice at school. Tuesday a federal judge blocked the Kenosha Unified School District from barring Ash Whitaker from using the boys bathroom.
“We’ve been trying to take one step at a time and this was a good step,” said Melissa Whitaker, Ash’s mother.
Kenosha Unified Schools asked Whitaker not to use the boys bathroom at Tremper High School – one of the reasons he sued the district for discrimination.
Ash was born female. About three years ago, he told his mom he identifies as a male.
