Posted on 07/07/2013 5:25:02 AM PDT by Kaslin
Its being heralded as a huge advancement for the cause of civil rights. But a controversial new bill in California has very little to do with children, yet has a whole lot to do with the selfish interests of the states government employees.
Its frequently referred to as the California Transgender Bathroom Rights Bill, and assuming that Governor Jerry Brown signs it in to law, it will require public K-12 schools throughout the state to let students choose which restrooms they use and which school teams they join based on their gender identity, rather than relying on their physiological gender. Reaching far beyond the matter of which restroom a student uses at school, the bill quite intentionally would require schools to allow students "to participate in sex-segregated programs, activities and facilities" based on their self-perception, and to ignore the gender that is designated on a students birth certificate.
The new policy will likely draw a backlash, and most of the criticism will likely rest on historic notions of morality and normative behavior. I dont want teenage males mingling with my daughter in the locker room some might say. But too bad the oppression of heterosexual presumption has been blight on western civilization throughout its history, and now the enlightened politicians of California are finally ridding us of this problem. Californians who arent so enlightened and who are stuck in their antiquated hetero-centric thought processes will just have to make some adjustments.
But not everybody in California will adjust easily. In fact it is likely that some, perhaps even many local school districts around the state will sue the state to prevent the laws implementation. And this is where the so-called civil rights bill will begin to serve the selfish interests of government employees.
When the law suits get filed, the California Attorney Generals office will as a matter of procedure have to defend the state law in court. This creates more work for the attorneys and assistants that already work at the AGs office, and may even necessitate the hiring of additional staff all of which is funded with peoples tax dollars.
And who do you suppose does the preparation and filing of the law suits? The staff legal counsel at the school district, of course. But how many local public school districts have a litigation attorney on staff? More customarily a public school district will have an attorney on staff to advise the school board on how to stay out of litigation, and not for the purposes of filing lawsuits. School districts may need to hire more attorneys or perhaps contract with outside attorneys in order to fight the legislatures enlightenment and once again this would happen at the expense of taxpayers.
But what about retro-fitting school facilities to accommodate the new law? Certainly the boys and girls signs that appear on restrooms and locker rooms will need to be removed. And why should any student who feels like they have a female identity have to look at a standup urinal every time they walk in to their restroom of choice? The civil rights law will no doubt create lots of work for facilities construction and maintenance personnel at school districts, all at taxpayer expense.
And lets not forget about the practical, emotional and psychological needs that the new law will create. Students and school personnel alike will presumably need special training and counseling so as to know how to make adjustments, and how to more effectively accommodate those with gender identities that are different from their physical gender. One could imagine that teachers unions might wish to lobby school districts for extra funding so teachers can get properly trained in the ways of gender identity issues. And perhaps Californias two government-run university systems the California State University (CSU) system, and the University of California (UC) system will need to develop new curriculum and coursework so as to properly train future teachers on how to create more gender neutral environments in public schools. Once again the taxpayers of the Golden State will shoulder the financial burden, as government employees go about their new and all-important work.
All of these various adjustments to be made in the name of tolerance and diversity add up to the same thing an expanded need for government workers, an expanded government bureaucracy, and more consumption of private peoples money. Its great news for those whose livelihoods are vested in growing the size and scope of government, but really sad news for people who work in the private sector and who still actually care about their liberty.
California = Insanity
Let’s say that a Man (or boy) decides one day, “I’m really a female - in a male body”.
My question for that individual: “Having never (in fact) been female, how would you know what it ‘feels like’ to be female?”
It’s a war against science itself.
pervs...pervs...pervs. nobama & LIBs “new normal”. I’ll have none of it, thank you.
I’m thinking of my 11 year old great niece in California who is a premium soccer player. She’ll soon be playing on teams and against teams where males decide that they want to play against females because they can excel over the females. Wasn’t there some issues about this in tennis a generation ago?
It won’t be up to you, comrade.
So, the boys who can't make the boy's teams will try out for the girl's teams.
Another FReeper said it a few days ago - God owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.
Maybe the stupidest thing I ever heard of. And that is saying a lot.
Let’s say your son’s 6’ 2”, kind of a mediocre basketball player, but certainly both tall enough and coordinated enough to be a force in the girl’s game. Not a chance in the world that he’d get a free ride for college with a basketball scholarship anywhere else in the country, but apparently it looks like California wants to give him some money.
Change your “gender identity” before your senior year in high school, be a star on the girl’s team, sue the snot out of the college of your choice if they don’t recruit you for a scholarship, and then feel free to change your “gender identity” back to something more convenient after graduation. And you help destroy Title IX in the process!
(the down side - you get what passes for an education from government schools in California)
California = Fascism with a Happy Face
Insanity is a National plague.
It is spreading faster than any other disease known to man.
The insanity of Homosexuals and mentally ill people who are of one gender ,and decide they want to be another.The plague includes people who accept this in the name of political correctness, of because they feel sorry for the afflicted.
I am literally from the “Old School. As I recall it, it was 4th grade and morning recess. I was chasing a softball as it rolled its way into the girls bathroom. Ever the competitor, I ran into it to grab the ball but was met by Sister Mary-Joseph on my way out.I clearly recall having to wear a girls scarf on my head for the rest of the school day.
And let’s say that boy declared that he was a female only to get into the girl’s restroom and sexually harass? I suppose the girls would have no right to complain.
