Calif. lawmakers pass K-12 transgender-rights bill

By 1SF

SACRAMENTO -- Transgender students in public schools can participate in school activities and use school facilities that conform to their gender identity under a bill that passed the Senate Wednesday and now heads to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown.

The bill, AB1266 by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, had the bare majority, passing 21-9 on a partisan vote with Democrats in support.

"There should be certainty that every kid has the chance to go to school and be treated equally and fairly," said state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, who presented the bill on the Senate floor. "We know that these particular kids suffer much abuse and bullying and denigration."

Backers of the bill have noted that current California law already prohibits schools from discriminating on the basis of gender identity, but they said many school districts in the state don't comply with that.

The Los Angeles and San Francisco school districts have had such policies in place for many years, ensuring access to restrooms, locker rooms or sports teams that align with the identity of transgender students.

Opponents raised many concerns, with state Sen. Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber (Tehama County), calling it an "extraordinarily consequential piece of legislation" that he said many parents and students would be reticent to accept.

He said students "now may be subjected to some very difficult situations and their parents to even more objectionable situations. It is not, ladies and gentlemen, a simple bill. It is a landmark bill for California."

Other Republican senators wondered about students who might take advantage of the law to participate on an opposite-sex sports team, and how the California Interscholastic Federation would handle such a situation.

The federation, which oversees high school athletics in California, has a policy that is in line with the bill for transgender students who want to play on teams that conform with their gender identity.

Shannon Minter, the legal director at the National Center for Lesbian Rights, called the bill's passage "wonderful."

"I think it's past time," said Minter, who is transgender. "California needs to catch up with other states and our transgender students need this protection and the schools need the guidance."

    How about the non-perverted, don’t they get any protection from these sexual perverts? The law says non-Christians should not have to be subjected to Christianity in public schools or on public property. So why must people who feel these LGBT’s are disgusting in their life style, be forced to except or be subjected to such perversions? I am Christian and a follower of Jesus Christ, I do not hate LGBT’s, but I do not want to associated with, or be forced to be around such people as long as they practice this perverted life style.

      Adding to your comment refurb001, the party of agnostics, atheists, and international spiritual mongers. Got in an argument about Christianity and religion with a Dem the other day, they actually believe that spirituality is growing? What a concept, I felt like I had to fight for what I believe in. ‘Jesus the same today, yesterday and forever.’ What would he think if he was walking on earth today?

      “It’s past time…California needs to catch up with other states…” So California was lagging behind in the weirdo/pervert wave sweeping the nation? How horrifying for the children of California, who now have to share a locker room with kids of the opposite sex, at least equipment-wise, and be told that just because you were born a girl or boy on the outside you can choose whatever you want to be and the rest of you have to ignore your lying eyes. How sad and tragic for the children of that state. I’ve always wanted to run like a racehorse. Can I think of myself as a racehorse and insist they let me run in the Kentucky Derby? Let’s see how far that gets me in Kentucky where they still have a lick of common sense. California is going to heck in a handcart, in the state of financial ruin, overrun by illegal aliens and and this is what they are going spend their money on? I’m sure there will be special indoctrination classes for all of the students in how to get along with naked people of the opposite sex, who really aren’t of the opposite sex, despite what the other kids see or try not to see.

      Can we just divide the country up into states that still have some modicum of sanity versus the states, like California, who are running themselves off the cliff. Then normal folks can live in a sensible state and idiots can let their freak flags fly in the home of the unhinged.

      I have no problem with letting the transgender into the girls GYM and BATHROOMS. The only thing is before it is passed, another law should proceed it. If anyone born a male says he feels like a female, and should be allowed to be with females, he must first have the surgery which turns him into one. Then as a girl, he can shower, and go into the girls bathroom, because he will be one of them.
      Why does he feel like a girl, yet want to retain his manhood?. Sounds to me like a cop out, and just a way for a male to be able to pleasure himself being with girls in their area of privacy, from guess who?, YES, boys.
      If this passes, it will open way too many doors which should not be opened, and with the lack of morality in our Country since 4 1/2 years ago, it will be dumbfounding what will become law in the next 3 1/2 years. Politically correct is taking our Country up the exact same road as the one Hitler blazed in the 30’s 40’s in his rise to power.

      School children are being taught songs about Nobama, is this much different from the brown shirts of that time long ago?.
      We are about to come under rule, not a President, and this man who sits in the Presidents chair is much more Muslim, Marxist than American. He fights against all that is good, and turns it to all that is bad, while he fights to make all that is bad, into all that is good.
      This is one of the Prophecies of the Bible, and this is only one of the many signs we can see of Prophecy fulfillment. This from a book which was written some 3,000 years ago. It is hard to deny where we are, when so much is coming our way as was Prophesied so very many years ago.

      Is this man paving the way for the Beast?, is he the Beast?, or second Beast?. From what I see happening in our Country since he took over the reigns, I am quite certain of it.
      So where do we go from here?. We are already killing babies, even to half term and higher ages. We have Gays getting married, completely against the laws of God, Gays, even though they cannot possibly have Children together, as it is against Nature, and God, are now buying, and adopting Children, which will bring them up biased to that lifestyle, regardless where they may have gone in a wholesome Father and Mother environment. God has been removed from Schools, and the Pledge, Prayer almost anywhere in public is looked upon as breaking the laws of this Administration, Bibles or Christian literature, or even prayer is not allowed in Military Hospitals, or ranks.
      Next we will see the Nudists saying if all these other people can disrobe with the opposite sex, so should we be able to. Or what if a man is in Love with his Goat?. Can he marry this goat?. Bestiality comes heavily into play right along with all of this other perversion, and Abomination to God. Next, they will be saying, that if Transgender can go into the opposite sex’s bathroom, and Gym, there is really no need to have separated bathrooms and shower rooms, as all should be able to have the free show.
      Jesus Christ is coming soon, all the signs, and prophecies are being shown to Christians, who read their Bibles.
      I would certainly hate to be any of these perverted people when Jesus Christ comes through the clouds to bring up to him his faithful believers , and have the angels cast the others into the fire until Judgment day. This is what it will take for the deviates, Homosexuals,
      Immoral, Godless, Atheists to see their mistake, but it will be way too late then, their fates along with all evil doers, will be already earned through their life’s choices, and cannot possibly be changed, or altered then.

      Sad to report that we are already there, the demoRAT legislature knocked, the devil answered and we were pushed in by the LGBT’s. The Golden State is now the ‘rainbow’ state and unless there is a major earthquake/tidal wave to hit Southern CA (Marin County and south)all is lost!
      I am so thankful that I don’t have children in school anymore and I feel very sorry for the people who do.
      So much for equal rights, only happens if you are a liberal.
      Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves, crying for a once great nation. Had they know what was going to happen to America, would they have risked all to defy and defeat England???

      Now the mistakes of nature get placed on equal footing with the intended successful norm. Abnormality is now placed on an equal footing with normal and they wonder why our society continues to fail. This Party of fools and their leaders prove themselves to be the mistakes of nature with every mistep they make to “EQUALIZE” every misformed member of our political body and would make us all like them who now are becoming as non-productive as the sexually disfigured mistakes, and the American circle of life spirals downward like a stream in a Liberal toilet they have now placed us all into to swim in. They would make us all a nation on disfigured impotents, just like they are. Have we become so politically correct crazy to allow our own diminishment which decertifies our own validity as humans as what they claim we are doing to them,,,,,,,,,just forget them and go to the strength before we are all incapable of surviving in a hostile world make more hostile by their foolish attempts to play God in thier mismanufactured fax equality.

      Sadly I live in this nut job state. I live in the very far northern part which believe it or not is pretty conservative but these left wing nut jobs have the super majority so they run everything. Anything that comes out of that little fairy Ammianno or Leno out of SF will be nothing but intrusive and/or destructive to the morals and values that true Americans hold dear! The demo-idiots do everything they can to destroy the state giving over extensive rights to illegals, homosexuals, criminals, while taking away the rights of tax paying, law abiding citizens. They have and continue to make it so difficult for business’s they are leaving the state in droves. Private citizens are also leaving by the thousands. They continue to tax us to death all the time increasing entitlements to those who have not right to it. They are making gun ownership for the law abiding citizen nearly impossible while at the same time are releasing dangerous criminals back onto the street because of “over crowding” so they say. It never stops. The northern part of the state has actually made the proposal to break away from California and form a new state of Jefferson. It wont happen because up here we work and pay taxes and they want our money so they can continue on their destructive course. I am a native Californian who is being forced out or my home and is looking to relocate to another state where some sanity still rules. That’s my rant.

This would raise the IQ of America by the sum of the National Debt raised to that power. This move is just adding Insult to injury due to the IDIOTS in DC saying Prop 8 a constitutional Amendment was Unconstitutional.

      Sane compassionate societies tolerate their mistakes and deformities, but do not edify them or place them into positions of power to rule over your successful created people. This is a recipe to deform your society. Even the sane deformed understand these principles of which few reside in the Democrat Party of the politically insane deformed. But California is the land where you pass the bills before you read them and never of course look to see what kinds of destruction the bills will do to edify the mistakes and cull out the strenth of normality. Enter Nancy Pelosi, the most destructive political entity to the American landscape since the advent of Jimmy Carter, who would put the unsuccessful, disfigured and malformed brains of their party on equal footing with workable Conservative functioning brains of success that used to reside in their party but left faster than a Ronal Reagan who understood that they left him,,,,,,, as just one more grounded wounded bird attempts to fly over the American cuckoo nest that no longer resides in the clouds but on the ground in the swamp where the snakes crawl and creep in. American California people of strength,,,,you just had your wings clipped,,,,,the Liberal chicken coup awaits you, soon to be followed by the frying pan.

    California has always enjoyed a reputation as being a leader in such things as technology, education, infrastructure, agriculture, manufacturing but in the last 20 to 30 years, under liberal political and public service union control, the state has been in decline across the board.

    The special interest groups like the environmentalists, the gay rights, the Hispanic advocacy groups, the zealot women rights groups, the abortion rights groups, the tax and spend advocates, all in lock with the public service unions at all levels of government, who have tremendous political leverage, now run the state and are taking it down the tubes.

    The California legislature spends more time figuring out new ways to raise taxes and fees on the declining tax base in California, dealing with transgender or gay rights issues, finding ways to hamper the development of energy sources in the state, and using a variety of environmental regulations to turn thousands of acres of farmland into dustbowls. The liberal attitudes in the state must think they are doing good or are basically incompetent, but in any case, their priorities and policies have ruined the state of California, and continue to force both companies and taxpayers to leave the state, which just makes the huge financial problems every city, county, and state governments are facing just worse.

    The state highway system is in bad shape and has never caught up with the demands of the millions of new residents (mostly illegal immigrants), it’s public school system has fallen from one of the best in the country to one of the worst, the manufacturing base continues to decline, and it’s tax and fee structure is one of the highest, if not the highest, in the country.

    What is really depressing is that since taking majority control of the state government, the liberal politicians have changed the legislative ground rules in such a way that conservative politicians and voters are completely left out of the political process in the state. The state Judical system is going along with all of this which basically removes any real checks and balance in the way the government operates as it has become a form of liberal dictatorship.

    California and other liberally (Democrats) controlled states are all suffering much more then those states run by conservative (Republican) politicians. Their unemployment levels are higher, their financial situation is much worse, their tax base is declining while their tax structure is going up, and their overall infrastructure continues to deteriorate. The root causes of this deteriorating situation are consistently centered around the liberal based priorities and policies of the politicians running the state who blindly ignore the reality of their irresponsible priority catering to special interest groups instead of the majority of the citizens within their jurisdictions. It is not working…but they stubbornly refuse to change their priorities.

    The bottom line in California is that the conservative voting base, which is composed of the values and priorities consistent with those that built California into the powerhouse it once was, has been overcome by a liberal voting base dominated by Hispanics, members of public service unions, the entertainment industry, and a myriad of other special interest groups. California is going to continue to decline and will never be the star it once was in our country and the world, and unfortunately, is an example of where the country at large is heading.

      Goodshot, I sure hope not. How much longer will this insanity entrench us. I often wonder what it is like in other parts of the country that are more Conservative. We just know the misery of California….

      What! 81K for those measly BART workers. Disgusting thing that it is. What a crime….

    Supreme Court and others have swung open wide the door for every wacko, homosexual freak show out there to come into the light and scream for their sicko rights. They care not how it affects children or anyone else. Just wait until kids start getting molested by these sickos masquerading as the same sex, then what? Guess the innocent victim will be to blame, right? Actually it starts with the parents allowing the kids in the first place to dictate to them that they want to persue these sicko tendencies. Of course, the world claims now that evil is good and good evil so this is what we are reaping from it all.

    Just when you think you’ve seen it all, California one ups the situation. I can just see some testosterone driven teenaged boys cross dressing just for access to the girl’s room/the showers. Giggling at the incredibly stupid adults that make it possible.

    We were all mortified at the idea of young men and women being beat to death because of their homosexual lifestyle. So we passed compassionate laws intended to stop that.

    It was never intended in that compassion that the homosexuals would take control of our society, twist our laws to their own advantage. Yet that is clearly what they have done and we allowed it.

    When the first homosexual sports figures, actors and politicians chose to make the perversity their badge of honor, we should have boycotted their games, songs movies TV series. But we didn’t. Our silence, our continued support was construed to mean acceptance, agreement and approval of their actions.

    All the left had to do was call us names, like bigots, homophobes and we folded into silence, protesting only among ourselves. Now our children and G’children will pay the price.

    Our Christian religion is now called insane, silly, delusional, zealous. People like Oprah, Madonna suggest alternate religions, being in touch with one’s self, Zen anything but God almighty. The atheist have now admitted that their non-religion is in fact, a religion. It takes as much faith to not believe as it does to believe and they have erected a plaque next to our Ten Commandments in DC, our president supports them, celebrates homosexuality and again, we Christians stand quietly, allowing it and supporting it in our silence.

    Our government is ruining this great country with perversity, suppressive laws and corruption at all levels and unlike the brave Egyptians we sit and do nothing, no marches, no challenges. There will be a march a protest in DC on July 15th, how many will bother to show up or send someone in their place if they cannot go personally?

      @marj0120, regarding your comment about Christainity. Never in my life have I had to fight for my beliefs. Like I stated having had a conversation with a Democrat about religion the other day. Mind you I live in the great land of Zen, LOL. Exactly, how this person described religion to me and this comes from a person who thinks we as a world have never been so spritual. Yah, like the good Christians we are we stand quietly and let them slap one side of our cheek, then the other side, then back to the other and so on and so forth. The Bible talks about the Anti-Christ…..walk in Obama who sides with immorality to fulfill his political totalitarian agenda.

      We need to hold onto our faith like crazy during these turbulent times and not fall for all the hoopla around us today.

    This is just so completely sickening it’s enough to not only make your blood completely boil over, but to convulse out the entire contents of your gastrointestinal system and cry at the same time. Never before in human history, I do not believe, has their ever been such massive child abuse on a scale to even come close to rivaling this. To do that to our children! These people are complete and utter sociopaths and I simply cannot take it anymore. I routinely call them dykes, fags, baby killers, sociopaths, psychopaths, perverts, child abusers and slimeball scumbags to their faces anymore- I just can’t be silent. Let the chips fall where they may. They are truly evil and at war with God, the church, decency, and good values. They are totalitarian control freaks and they are extremely dangerous. They have already caused the deaths of over 50 million unborn babies. Is that alone not enough to make people realize they are complete and utter psychopaths and sociopaths?! Just a little?! THERE IS NO “CONVERSING WITH” OR REASONING WITH OR COMPROMISING WITH EVIL. THEY HAVE TO GO- BY FORCE!

      As I stated. The people in NY are leaving and moving to Texas. Why don’t they just stay put already. Why are they moving out to begin with. Probably because it is so bad that even the idiot Dems can’t even stand it. Personally, we would move not to change another state but to rejoice in a more conservative consciousness and contribute to its fruitfulness:)

    I hope every person who voted for this bill, have young girls who go to a school where these Abominations attend, I hope they come home with tears of humiliation, because a male was showering with them in Gym. I hope they have to put up with them in the bathrooms too, just as a lesson to those who seek to take away their freedom of privacy, to be Nobamas politically correct agenda .
    This is the worst travesty I have seen from any State, States, even the , Country, which has to bow down to the Proxident/ U.S. Government in the name of politically correct, and in devastation of the majority’s rights.
    I cannot believe that anyone who has any decency at all, could vote this privacy deleting bill. What about the rights and Privacy of the overwhelming majority of Girls who are actually Girls/Daughters?.
    Not just Californica, ( Misspelled on purpose )the whole United States have gone off the deep end to please this Demon sitting in the Presidents chair. He is a abomination, and this is more and more evident as he remains in the Country’s most powerful position. I wonder how he would respond if his own daughters were exposed to a man in their Gyms and showers?. I bet he would do a complete reversal of the bill allowing Men to Expose themselves to Girls and Women, merely using the law, if it passes the Governor, to say that he feels like a she.
    We have lost all of our morality, and are giving our Country away to the very small Minority, because the Vulture doesn’t want their rights violated, but what of the big Majority?. Do we have to bend, even though we are the highest count.?

I think he has an agenda which was planted in his mind when he was a child, and reinforced by the Marxists and Communists who nurtured his education. His father was determined to avenge colonialism (See “Dreams FROM my Father”). He has determined that America is EVIL, that Christianity is EVIL, and that capitalism is EVIL. He was recruited and cultivated for his hatred. Someone paid for his education and training. He is driven by hate, and will let nothing stand in his way as he seeks to destroy what he believes is ‘evil’. I don’t believe that he is the Anti-Christ, but perhaps he paves his way.

    This is the kind of exercise in stupidity that only California could orchestrate. Sports, bathrooms, dressing rooms, etc. should be assigned based on physical characteristics, NOT the sex a person is “feeling” today. People with male bodies use the male facilities and the male teams. Females likewise. Otherwise, why have any segregation at all?

    This bill goes to prove that there is not a shred of common sense left in California. Unfortunately, the stupid ideas that start in California spread like a disease through the rest of the country. What we need is a good antibiotic (not to mention some chlorine for the gene pool…)

    The next bill on the Californis agenda should be the lifting of any restrictions on public nudity. There are already some beaches where it is allowed. But restricting other beaches is obviously ‘discrimination’.

    After that we must allow all our peaceful citizens to demonstrate their love for each other as well. There should be no laws prohibiting the public display of the most ‘loving act’ that humans can engage in, and of course that should have no relation to the sex of the participants. I make no reference to age, for we cannot have age discrimination either.

    But do not stop there. For there are probably those who have difficulty with inter-human relationships.

    Just call it ‘Public Policy’.
