Since one must be 16 to get a drivers license in most states, 17 (with parental consent) to join the mil, 18 to buy tobacco, 21 to drink alcohol.. How can those under age, get a legal name change?

This is in relation to this news story i read about a 15 (some reports say 16) yr old girl who 'legally changed her name" cause she thinks she is a man, and sued the school board of Virgina, cause even though they tried to accommodate her by building 3 Separate facilities JUST FOR HER/IT/HIM to use, apparently that is not enough, she wants to use the boys room.

Unfortunately this doesn't even mention anything about the legal name change, just that She/he told the Dean of her/his change.

mentions that she/he got her name change last July and told her parents about it, but not whether she told her parents Before or after the change.

mentions that the name change came shortly after telling her parents, but not whether the parents assisted in the legal name change, just that "Gavin" changed his name legally.

Just copy and paste the link vice using the [url] tool. The basic reasoning is so that someone doesn't hide a link that looks like it goes to CNN or wikipedia and really goes to herecomesyourvirusandmalware.com or something
