"What bathrooms can transgendered people use?" has become a hot-button question not only in Michigan, but across the United States.

Public comments pour in as the Michigan Board of Education continues to draft its voluntary guidelines to assist schools in addressing the needs of their LGBTQ students.

Alison Gash is an assistant professor of political science at the University of Oregon, who wrote about the public backlash of gender-neutral bathrooms in a recent op-ed. Gash joined Cynthia Canty on today's Stateside.
