    The California State Assembly passed a bill Thursday mandating schools permit boys to play on girls’ athletic teams and utilize the ladies’ locker room if they gender identify as girls – or vice-versa for girls identifying as boys.

    The bill’s author, openly homosexual San Francisco Democrat Tom Ammiano, has been an activist for lesbian, “gay,” bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, issues for decades and reportedly became in 1975 the first San Francisco public school teacher to make his homosexuality public. Ammiano later co-founded an LGBT organization with Harvey Milk, the homosexual activist about whom Hollywood made a recent feature film and California schools celebrate an annual day of remembrance.

    Ammiano told the Los Angeles Times some parents may be uncomfortable with their children sharing bathrooms with students of a different sex, but he said, “It’s also important to protect our children from prejudice.”

    “There’s no trampling of other people’s rights,” he said. “There’s a recognition that other people have the same rights that you do.”

    Ammiano cited the case of Eli Erlick, a high school student in Mendocino County who was born male but identifies as female. Ammiano said Erlick was prohibited from participating in girls’ gym classes while in middle school and noted that Erlick’s parents testified in favor of the bill.

    By a vote of 46-25, carried without any affirmative votes from Republican lawmakers, the California Assembly passed the bill, AB 1266, which amends Section 221.5 of the state’s Education Code as follows: “A pupil shall 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.”

    IMHO, any child who identifies with a gender that is biologically opposite to his/her birth gender, is in desperate need of psychological evaluation, counseling, and treatment. It is not a condition upon which any law or accomodation should be based within an intelligent and compassionate society.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    I agree.

    If I was a parent of a young girl in school, I would be very upset if a boy was sharing a shower with her at school.

    Just another ploy by the left to blur the gender lines. They don't believe in gender and this is a way to normalize a disorder.

    What? Are you actually agreeing with me, that this is idiotic, or are you just trying to stir things up?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    The headline is technically true, in opening the girls locker room to pre-op transexuals they are opening the room to males but they are not opening the locker room to all boys. It's Hedwig not Porkies.

    There are a lot of good reasons to homeschool. How do you figure that this is one of them?

    Boys in the female locker rooms?

    That would be enough for some parents to pull their kids out of school sports or out of school altogether.
