Just when you thought it might be possible to find a few sane citizens left in the USA, California has hit a new low. In fact, the entire state must now jump up to hit bottom.
California passed a bill allowing students as young as kindergarten right through high school to determine whichever bathroom they feel most comfortable using in school, so as not to discriminate against transgender students.
The bill changes the education code so that a student is “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.” Democratic Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco told the Associated Press, “There should be certainty that every kid has the chance to go to school and be treated equally and fairly. We know that these particular students suffer much abuse and bullying and denigration. We can’t change that overnight, but what we can do is make sure that the rules are such that they get a fair shake.” The Transgender Law Center announced, “We’re thrilled that the Senate has passed this important legislation.”
According to the new regulation, it is all about how a person feels inside, regardless of gender. I wonder how many male high school athletes will feel their feminine side coming out when it is time to shower with the girls’ team. If you live in California, feel free to send your 16-year old daughter to school and don’t worry. This is a brave new world.
