California Law AB1266- Transgender “School Success & Opportunity Act”
Transgenders in CA public schools must soon be accommodated based on their self-perceived gender identity — which means biological girls may use boys’ bathrooms and biological boys may join the girls’ cheerleading squads — under a law signed August 12th by California Gov. Jerry Brown.
California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a Democrat, introduced AB 1266 with support from the Transgender Law Center and other gay-rights groups.
Under the law, public school students from kindergarten to 12th grade must be “permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”
Would you want your child to shower with one of the opposite sex? All a boy or girl has to do is claim their “gender identity” and this law gives them the absolute authority to shower with kids of that sex.
This law is wide open for abuse.
From the November 3rd Washington Times: “Petitions are “pouring in” to block a new California law that opponents say will give boys the right to use girls’ bathrooms and showers.”
The law is expected to affect some 6.2 million public K-12 school students.
However, if sufficient petitions are turned in Nov. 8 and verified, the new law will be suspended until voters can decide whether to keep it or not in the November 2014 election. If the petition effort fails, the new law goes into effect Jan. 1.
This is not just a “California” issue. We all need to pay attention to what is going on all across our country on the issues important to us. We are not powerless. We must speak out on behalf of our children and grandchildren to make a difference for this generation and those who will come after us.
