Pinellas County nursing student getting sex change, forced to use separate bathroom
Alex Wilson, a transgender student, has been told she'll face charges and be kicked out of school if she continues to use the women's bathroom.
(WFLA) Alex Wilson is a certified nursing assistant, hoping to become a licensed practical nurse, by attending classes at Pinellas Technical Education Center in Clearwater.
Another transformation is ongoing, from male to female. Four years of hormone therapy means the process is well underway.
Up until yesterday Alex was using the women's restroom on the PTEC campus. But that all came to an end after a fellow student complained, and went to administration.
Wilson says she was pulled out of class and told her alternatives.
"If I continue to use the female restroom that I would have charges pressed against me. And that, because of that, I would be removed from the program as a nurse," said Wilson.
The school is looking into other options for Alex and could make some policy changes.
