The various factors at play in the wake of this decision are limitless, but it's hard to avoid discussing the media's reaction to the news. Local news channels such as this one feature one male reporter walking out of a woman's bathroom while discussing the "most controversial" part of the plan. The same video clip features a student bashing the plan as "unacceptable" and as saying that he'd be "disgusted by" living with a transgender student. Is this reporting biased against the plan, or is this fair reporting that provides arguments from both sides?
And while the local media's coverage of this and other transgender issues may be cause for concern, it's certainly an improvement of more ignorant and offensive reporting of days gone by.
