The Freak Show is in town in California!
I wouldn’t blame any California parents for pulling their children out of the public schools.: What are taxpayers getting for their money besides inferior education, pitiful graduation rates, and one institutionalized immorality heaped on top of the next?
Fox News reports a Republican state lawmaker says a new California law allowing transgender students to choose which restroom and locker room they use is part of the reason at least one of his sons will not return to his local public school this fall.
Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, who lives in the Southern California mountain community of Twin Peaks, described his family’s decision in a column published on WND, a conservative website.
He wrote that under the bill from Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, the privacy rights of California students “will be replaced by the right to be ogled” and will encourage inappropriate behavior among hormone-driven teenagers.
“While trying to address a concern of less than 2 percent of the population, California is now forcibly violating the rights of the other 98 percent,” Donnelly wrote.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill into law Monday, making California the first state to put such transgender protections into statute.
Donnelly told The Associated Press on Friday that his 13- and 16-year-old sons, who attend Rim of the World Unified School District in the San Bernardino Mountains, were “horrified” to learn they might have to share a restroom with female students.
He is pulling one son out of middle school, while another son is uncertain if he will return to his public high school. The decision is one that his family already had been discussing before the bill was approved.
“If it doesn’t change his school experience, he may still stay,” Donnelly said of his high-school student. “We don’t know yet how this policy is going to affect our town.”
A message left with the school district’s superintendent’s office was not immediately returned.
The law, which will take effect Jan. 1, gives students the right “to participate in sex-segregated programs, activities and facilities” based on the gender they identify with as opposed to their birth gender. Those programs also include sports teams.
Supporters said it will help reduce bullying and discrimination against transgender students and note that the state’s largest school district, Los Angeles Unified, has had such a policy for nearly a decade.
This is what happens when Progressives are in charge of social policy. They not only force cities like Detroit into bankruptcy, but they also love to use the population for outrageous social experiments. Anybody who thinks this policy will reduce bullying incidents is really insane. Bullying will increase which is what I think Liberals want to grab more power.
