The debate over transgender rights has reached the U.S. Supreme Court. On Wednesday, the court temporarily blocked an order from a lower court, which would have let a transgender student use the boys' bathroom.
In April, a federal appeals court ordered a Virginia school district to let trans student Gavin Grimm use the school bathroom associated with his gender identity. The ruling is based on the Obama administration's interpretation of the Title IX gender discrimination law.
