    This is idiotic for a number of reasons.

    Gender confusion is not something that the state should be indulging. A parent who is willing to entertain sex-reassignment for a minor is imposing mutilation and psychological trauma on their own child, which is bad enough, but for the state to give this its blessing and force others to conform to this nonsense is insane (but, this is California, where insanity appears to be a state-sponsored condition).

    The presence of boys in a girls' locker room (or girls in a boys' locker room) puts everyone at risk. Single sex lockers and bathrooms exist for a reason. Sexual predation is a far greater threat in mixed bathrooms and lockers. A confused girl surrounded by boys is still biologically a girl, and the risks for her are too great for this. A single male with access to a girls' bathroom or locker room has access to the girls that are in it.

    If Virginia follows this idiocy, I'd have to pull my girls out of public school. The bathrooms and lockers would present too great a risk for them.

    To school boys a transexual male is a homosexual. How many guys did you go to school with who would pretend to be a homosexual?

    Look at it this way: A transgender child believes that he is a female. A fundy christian believes the earth is 6000 years old. A Mormon believes that ancient Jews lived in North America and were killed by the Indians. One of those idiocies can be reasonably accommodated in an academic environment, the other two are incompatible.

    Analogy fail, believing the earth is 6k years old doesn't affect anyone but the believer unlike this nonsense in the OP. Letting a kid believe its really the opposite sex is wrong (not to mention corrupting a poor child into believing homosexuality is ok).

    That would be enough for some parents to pull their kids out of school sports or out of school altogether.
    Some parents pull their kids out of public school because science class teaches science rather than mythology. You can't please everyone.

    The previous responses to your question were really excellent, and I am going to leave you with Ody's crucial observation:

    Sexual predation is a far greater threat in mixed bathrooms and lockers. A confused girl surrounded by boys is still biologically a girl, and the risks for her are too great for this. A single male with access to a girls' bathroom or locker room has access to the girls that are in it.

    And I'm sure you have evidence to back this up right?

    Locker rooms and bathrooms at K-12 schools should be sex-gregated (I made up a word!). Pre-surgical trannies should use the locker room for the gender they are now, not what they are going to be once they have the surgery. If a boy has a penis, he should not be in the girls locker room. If a girl has girl parts, she shouldn't be in the boy's locker room.


    Actually, I think any restroom or locker room should be for the gender the sign says it's for, not for pre-op trannies. Once the operation is done, okay, use that bathroom. But until then....


    And no doctor should ever perform a sex change operation on anyone under 18 years old, nor should they prescribe female/male hormones to anyone under age 18 for gender-switching purposes. Even if the parents are asking for it to be done for their child.
