Hello there! So here’s the thing… I’m going back to school in september and just figured out that I’ll have a little problem there. I’m not sure which bathroom to use, for example. I’m bigender and we only have the girls’ and boys’ bathrooms at school.
Another thing would be the changing of clothes before sports class. I already decided to buy a binder when I turn 18 (I don’t want my parents to ask questions) but how does everyone deal with changing in front of people or going swimming?
It’d really great if some of you could help me out! :)

As for the bathroom problem, being cisgender I can’t give much insight but I would suggest using whichever bathroom you damn feel like, or even taking it up with the school board to have a gender fluid bathroom installed. As for the changing for sports class, there will most likely be bathroom stalls in the locker rooms which you can use for changing if you want. If you can’t, you can get a friend to help you out of stand in front of you if you feel self conscious. If you don’t feel self conscious, awesome! Just change and go about your business.
Best of luck! xoxo

I had gym last year and I would change in the bathroom stalls in the locker room, like goodnightowl mentioned. As for bathrooms, I avoid going to the bathroom during school if I can help if, but if not I just go during classes and use the one I want when no one’s around to see me.

At my school, they have a “teacher” bathroom on each floor, which they allow students to use if thats what they are comfortable with. You could always go to the nurses bathroom, or discuss the bathroom use with your principal/superintendant. If they don’t allow you to use the bathroom opposite to your biological gender for some reason, then as I said, use the nurse bathroom, or the one for those of your biological gender.
