  Case: Transgender Empathy/Rights
There is a male student at my school who likes to wear nail polish and lipstick. Many of the teachers see this as a class distraction. How can teachers minimize distractions in the class without infringing upon the students' beliefs/feelings/rights?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
A school should be a place where students feel safe and comfortable to express themselves. It is important to not draw additional attention to this boy so that his classmates don't see him as a distraction.

Comments: How can you expand on not drawing attention to other students? If this was expanded more I might agree, but of course every student should express themselves so they feel comfortable.

Comments: While this post is fairly strong overall I think it would benefit from noting the harm that could come from drawing additional attention to the child beyond the impact it might have to the classroom.
