Are people going to want to bother with this initiative, knowing it will be nullified by the courts.

The courts will just nullify the repeal. They are near gods who don’t have to listen to mere peons.

One of the provisions gives transgender students the choice of playing on either boys or girls sports teams. It also allows them to choose which restroom that want to use. Supporters of the repeal effort argue the law violates the privacy of non-transgender students.

One would think that a group of politicians could get no dumber than to allow boys to masquerade as girls and get on female sports teams.

Wrong. They also allow boys to wander into female bathrooms and oogle their classmates.

These politicians are devoid of moral sense.

I can’t think of a constitutional right to ignore gender reality that’s being violated. No way that Justice Kennedy would go along with this.

Geeze, when our HS football team is down 42 points, we wouldn’t dream of saying they should quit.

I am sorry, but I was sick to horrified with ‘conservatives’ saying Ted Cruz should quit

Ugh

Wow, an unscrupulous volleyball coach could take state by recruiting boys off the boys team for the girls team....

In the future everyone will be required by law to spend some time as a man and some time as a woman.

It will only be fair.

Disturbing, but fair.

Libertarians aren’t this dumb. At a minimum they’d insist on lockable single occupant restrooms that are for any person.

That would be a rational response, but pretending that a 6’6” muscled male should be on the girl’s basketball or volleyball team is simply ignorant in the classical sense of that word.

In most cases, they aren’t masquerading. A Christian school in California was told by the wrestling league that it was coed, and they had to accept matches against girls for boys on the wrestling team. The school said, fine, we will just take forfeits for those matches. The wrestling league said, they either have the boys wrestle girls, or leave the league. I think they want to remove the stigma against males hittling females.

How about when your HS football teams wins, then the league informs them the league decided they actually lost the game.

If a federal judge has a certain number rulings tossed by the appellate courts, for other than technical grounds..that judge should be removed..

Exactly! Aren’t these the same folks that nullified the vote of the people of California when they ‘found’ a constitutional amendment unconstitutional, which is most certainly an oxymoronic outcome.

Who really cares? The homosexuals will find a homosexual activist judge to declare it unconstitutional, and Brown, and Harris will not appeal. This is a big waste of time and money in a state that no one cares about any more.

If this initiative is upheld the California schools will probably build special bathrooms and showers for the cross dressers. There would be four types of bathroom/showers. One for normal boy, one for normal girls, one for males who call themselves something else, and one for Chaz Bono. Who cares how much it costs.

I think allowing boys to pretend to be girls on sports teams is too much even for Kennedy. Scotus as it is today would not approve this foolishness.

Funny how far they had to go before the people of this state took notice. Still I wonder how much that number was influenced by the young girl who called Rush Limbaugh’s show to complain about this. Rush didn’t interfere when she stated the website for the petition two or three times.

I think they want to remove the stigma against males hitting females.

That is one step in the process of ensuring that there is no stigma associated with males shooting females. Or any other uncooperative civilians. All part of the plan.

and this will go all the way to the district liberal court and then to the SCOTUS and then we’ll see the wishes of the people ignored yet again while the perverts and mentally sick get another step passed on their bigger agenda.

Back in the sane early 60’s, I was a volunteer coach for a sorority’s volleyball team. And that was a far as it went.

Today, who knows? I wonder if they do “towel flicks” in their showers? If I put on a dress, can I find out?

We can get rid of our many bad judges/justices by impeaching them or in some cases voting them out.

Not on this one. I don’t see Kennedy agreeing that boys should be on girls’ sports teams.

That’s where they’ve over-reached on this one.

There would be four types of bathroom/showers.

Robert Heinlein had six sexes in his imaginary future. Hetro male, Homo male, Hetro female, Homo female, ambi male and ambi female.

He lacked imagination. He missed mutilated male and mutilated female.

It would not surprise me if the state courts find this law constitutional, but if it reaches the level of the Federal courts, I believe it will be struck down as it causes both emotional and potential physical harm to children. Even in this day and age, I cannot see that the federal courts would allow children to be put in harms way by a law like this.

I lived in California for almost 20 years, I am not sure what happened to that state, It’s more than just a weak Republican party. So many people down there are completely at odds with the state government but feel powerless to fight it. Instead, many are voting with their feet. I am one of them, I love that state, but I will never go back.
