Bill pending in CA would require schools to let boys play on girls’ teams, share ‘facilities’
California Catholic Daily ^ | January 12, 2012

Posted on 01/12/2012 1:46:51 PM PST by NYer

News from the Pacific Justice Institute

Less than a week after California’s gay history mandate went into effect, a new pro-LGBT bill introduced last week promises to stir even more controversy.

AB 266, sponsored by Assemblyman and comedian Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), would require schools to allow students to participate on sports teams according to their “gender identity,” not their biological sex.

This is no joke. That means that a boy who claims that he identifies as female would have the right to try out for the girls’ basketball team, potentially taking away an opportunity from a girl who might otherwise make the team.

“This bill will potentially turn long established federal law that provides equal opportunities for boys and girls to participate in school athletics on its head,” said chief counsel Kevin Snider.

But that’s not all. The bill also mandates access to opposite-sex “facilities,” apparently including locker rooms.

According to its text, “This bill would require that a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs, activities, and facilities, including athletic teams and competitions, consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

Critics say the implications of the bill are staggering. One such critic is Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, which will be opposing the bill.

“Those afflicted with Gender Identity Disorder need professional counseling and our compassion, not more mandates that do not serve the best interests of our children,” he said.

They let girls play on boys’ teams, I see this as fair play. We’ll see how long these leftist scum support it when little girls start getting injured.

Girls, sign up for the boys team and demand equal representation and play time.
Referees, disqualify any girl's teams with boys in them.
Parents, stand by your kids when they walk out of the locker room and the games.

Dang, afterschool sex with hot teachers and free passes to the girls’ locker room. It’s like they read my mind at 15. Are they that desperate to keep boys from cutting school?

The lawsuits resulting from this piece of stupidity would bankrupt every school district in California and might well get some young gay blades shot dead for messing with the girls’ restroom.

When my son was a high school wrestler, getting a female opponent was the worst possible scenario. If you won.. big deal you beat a girl.. if you lost.. heaven help you!

Don't hold your breath. Before that happens, the state will ban sports from schools, as they have done in parts of Canada, for fear children might get injured. The slope is very slippery ...

just said on another thread I was reading before this one.

The north east and the west coast are like another country compared to us down here in the south and the midwest and to be honest I would not be bothered if the west coast and the north east just went on their merry way and let us live as we have for hundreds of years.

I guarantee that in 20 years their new liberal utopia country would be all messed up and those liberals who set their new country up would be wanting to be moving back down here again.

Of course, public school (especially in Califaggornia) is child abuse, and any DemoRat is a pedophile pervert.

That being said, I personally, am in danger of laughing myself to death as I watch ringside, the (un) natural progression of faggot political correctness.

I saw this coming years ago.

San Francisco is a dream come true for for any pedophile pervert smart enough to locate here.

Most FReepers will not be surprised to learn that SF has lost more than 50% of it's childrens' population in recent years. Normal families are moving out as fast as they can, and city officials claim to be stumped as to why. LOL!

Haha, we had a girl on the wrestling team when I was a freshmen, she was a junior. I had to wrestle her a few times, she didn’t last the season. No girls on the wrestling team in college, go figure ; )

I don't recommend pulling the thread, the proposed legislation is factual in existance.

Discussion would be improper only if the bill was entirely fictitious and nonexistent.

It will be back, and the citizenry should be informed so as to give it the welcome and attention it deserves.

When my son was a high school wrestler, getting a female opponent was the worst possible scenario.

A situation like that was in the news within the last year:
Girl wrestler wins match after male opponent declines to compete.
It's a no-win situation and I really like the statement he gave.

The sponsor of the legislation, Assemblyman and comedian Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), is a homosexual which I think is relevant to the issue.

Why is it that most of these gender identity disorder stories seem to come from left leaning states? Are they the only places with such a large number of confused youths? Totally messed up. This opens the door for a litany of abuses.

ah see where we are we get cold, frost etc , yet go about an hour drive south and you see different palm trees which I cannot grow.

Also I chose this county because there is not one rat in power, all are republicans and it is one of the most republican counties in the state and we’re not broke and still growing .

As for flat, , well I’ll give you that compared to where you are but we do have small rolling hills which turn into mountains if you go into north GA and there is snow too and then there is the beautiful smoky mountains

You and hubby ever take a trip over here give us a shout and the family will meet you

Thank you! I will definitly keep that in mind. I’m not scared of mountains, I’m scared of flats... I did visit your state once and I was dumbstruck the whole time! There seemed to be only two kinds of plants, and the terrain seemed as flat as a pancake. I live surrounded by mountians. Nice and cozy...

:-

But I do love swimming in the ocean. Not possible around here. Have to drive for hours to get any ocean warm enough.

I don’t like the south part of the state at all, flat, hot, loads of north east liberals and traffic, however we are not far from GA, on the line of the bible belt, plenty of land but we do have to drive to the mountains though the warm ocean is only a mile away as the crow flies that is LOL

We as GA have some very hundreds of years old oaks which are beautiful too.

The town is nice where I am though I live just outside it .
Just heard today food lion which was just built is now closing all their stores which means we now have to travel back into town for a super market.
We do have many family owned stores though, and we go the local greengrocers, next door a fish mongers with fresh fish, my oldest is in the owners daughters class so we get treated well and then the bakery next door to that.

And no rats running the county LOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

I should have ‘Meteorology Rocks’ put on a shirt.

I have a radar image of Hurricane Andrew as my screensaver.

It’s astonishing how big that storm was. I can’t begin to imagine how terrifying it must have been for the people who lived through it and for those who died and knew they were about to.
