Tommy Theollyn’s seven-year-old son — who we’ll call ”D.” — looks like a boy. While he was born biologically female, D. feels, deep in his heart, that he is a boy — and wears boys’ clothing and has short hair.
Tommy has done everything a caring parent would do to help a child going through a potentially tough time. D. has been to a psychologist and doctor, both of whom say that the right thing for Tommy to do is allow D. to live as a boy.
So Tommy is trying to do just that for his son. But there’s one big problem: D. has been denied access to the boys’ restroom — or a safe restroom — at his elementary school in Georgia. Since forcing D. to use the girls’ restroom effectively reveals that he is transgender to other children, this decision seriously threatens D.’s safety. Which is why Tommy made the heartbreaking decision to pull his son out of school.
