California Law Empowers Transgenders in Public Schools


I’ve been giving this incident some thought, and just have to share them.  When did we give our country over to special interest groups?  How did it happen that the majority doesn’t matter anymore?  How did we reach the point where we expose our children to unisex bathrooms in public school?  When did we decide that parents don’t have the last word in what is acceptable for their children?

By signing this bill into law, Governor Brown thumbed his nose at all the parents who disagree with having a person of the opposite sex in the bathroom with their child.  He “overrode the objections of Republican lawmakers who said the bill would undermine parental choice and put school children into uncomfortable situations.”

By signing this bill into law, Brown is saying that the feelings of the majority of children come in second to the feelings of one child.  Thinking back to my school days, I would have been humiliated and devastated to have to share a bathroom with boys.  Of course, I understand that children these days are exposed to the world much sooner than I was, due to the internet, loose controls on TV programs, and movies, but still…  And, excuse me for bringing this up, but think about young girls just getting adjusted to having periods.  It’s private.  It’s a big change in your life.  You don’t want the opposite sex in the bathroom with you.

As a conservative woman, mother, and grandmother, I am appalled at the lack of thought and understanding shown by the liberal Democrats who have been running my state for decades.  In their minds, ideology and agenda trump real people, and in this case, impressionable children will suffer the consequences.

  1. I’m having problems with this too. I have friends who are gay, bi and a couple are transgender. So, I sympathize with the difficulties of fitting in and we all know kids can be horrible bullies to anyone they consider to be different from them. But is integrating bathrooms and locker rooms the answer? I can’t imagine how the children will feel. No matter what gender a person perceives themselves to be, being in a restroom or locker room situation will only magnify their differences. I also can’t imagine it won’t be very uncomfortable for everyone involved and especially the transgender child. And none of that even accounts for the potential for bullies or others to abuse these rules. It just seems there has got to be a better answer for everyone involved. You also bring up a great point about the bodily and emotional changes teens are going through in middle and high school – at that point, its difficult to be in locker rooms with people of the same gender.

    Thank you for your comment. I agree that I don’t want anyone to be bullied. I cannot begin to imagine the inner turmoil of a transgender child. As you state, will they feel any more at ease in the bathroom/locker room of the opposite sex? Will they feel intimidated? Will the other kids snub them, or try to bully them? Has anyone asked for their feelings or thoughts? This bill just wasn’t thought out, in my opinion. There are wide-open opportunities for abuse. I’m sure the California lawmakers think they have put adequate safeguards in place, but how often do safeguards fail? Too often to use our children in this social experiment.

    I doubt very much if this new California Law is going to empower transgenders, It is tragedy in the making. I feel sorry for the children that are being used as experimental fodder for these so-called “progressives” who can’t keep their hands off other peoples children. Let them subject their own children first to their social engineering projects and see how it works, before subjecting everyone else children to their experiments. The question is, why are they attempting to destroy the religious beliefs of others by forcing their new government religion on unsuspecting children? The answer lies in past History.
