Posted on 12/27/2013 5:36:11 PM PST by artichokegrower
AN FRANCISCO With a law that spells out the rights of transgender students in grades K-12 set to take effect in California, school districts are reviewing locker room layouts, scheduling sensitivity training for coaches, assessing who will sleep where during overnight field trips and reconsidering senior portrait dress codes.
But administrators, counselors, teachers and school board members also are watching and waiting. The law, the nation's first requiring public schools to let children use sex-segregated facilities and participate in the gender-specific activities of their choice, could end up suspended within days of its Jan. 1 launch if a referendum to repeal it qualifies for the November ballot.
To obtain a public vote on the law, passed by the legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, a coalition of conservative groups called Privacy for All Students has collected hundreds of thousands of signatures. Counties have until Jan. 8 to verify them through random spot-checking.
Depending on how many are found to be valid, the secretary of state will approve the referendum, determine that it failed or order a review of every signature.
"We don't know what's going to happen when kids come back from their holiday vacation," said Republican state Sen. Steve Knight, who voted against the law. "Are there going to be 15-year-old girls talking in the bathroom and in walks a boy? What are they going to do? Scream? Run out?"

I’m sick to death of the freaks & deviants who run this state.
Working out who’s who in the locker rooms and sleep overs? I’ll say it, at this point, what difference does it make???
Note to parents....grab your kids and run. They’re better off uneducated than corrupted by these people. Trust me, in a couple of hours a day, you could be a better job, without all of the garbage. Your child’s soul is more important.
“reconsidering senior portrait dress codes”
Thank God for Photoshop
Why bother with the referendum? It’ll cost a ton of $, then when it passes overwhelmingly, a single judge will overturn the public vote.
Its time for the good people to take back our country from the pervs. Can we file many lawsuits in many places and tie this crap up in court?
Democracy in America is dead. I don't see why we even bother with elections anymore.
Probably not. California courts are as corrupt as any in the land.
“I don’t see why we even bother with elections anymore.”
We won’t for long
Apparently the voters in California didn’t believe that electing deviants to office would have any negative consequences. Dolts!
Neither do the voters nationwide, apparently. Dolts, all.
I hope the 15 year old girls in the bathroom when a boy walks in KICK HIS ASS!
Their “holiday “ vacation? What “holiday would that be? Hanukkah that ended 3 weeks ago? that muslim holiday that did not even take place in December this year? Maybe its extended July 4th?
Queers, freaks and perverts .... I think the unsure fall into the second category.
Has already happened and the girls were cited for a hate crime. I’ll look for a link.
It don’t get any dumber than this.
In my day we would have kicked their ass.
When they run they'll vote the same expecting a different result.
Any shcool that follows this should be closed
The judge can order it, let him enforce it
What a waste of everyone’s time. Total BS and completely unnecessary.
Why are these pervs getting gov’t recognition? Why is this the new thing for weirdos? I’ve heard states are changing birth certificates for ppl who don’t have surgery. Good lord, what’s happening?
Our country is going to Crap and Americans in enough numbers are not fighting back.
AMERICANS keep voting for the same people who institute the downfall of our culture
and civilized nation. To bad I'll live long enough to witness the end game.
Can a 5 year old kindergartener really know he’s a *transgender*? Really? Beyond disgusting.
I agree about the corrupt courts but if they were forced to rule on hundreds of cases they would have no time for other things
If there wasn’t any God, your view would be as reasonable as any.
However God doesn’t take all that easily to being pushed away. Sometimes a moral spill like this is God’s way of warning a groggy people to put more of their attention upon Him. And the time frames involved may seem sluggish to us, but God knows what He is doing.
In short I advise: worship God as best you can and do not give up the ship until you are gone. Even if earth “goes to hell,” if you put your faith in Christ and fight, your soul will go not just to heaven but a richly rewardful one.
Maybe the state constitution should require all the laws to make sense. That might get rid of most of them! :-)
I doubt more than a few percent of liberal parents would try to defend this....outside of California. But those not in California better start speaking up because it’s coming to their states. Then their daughters are going to come home from school and tell mommy and daddy that some boy was jer... off in the bathroom. Sorry for the crude image. But it’s will happen.
Presumably there aren’t any urinals in the girl’s bathrooms...
Will they install some for the girls with penises?
The legislature approved it, didn’t they?
Opponents would have to figure out a hundred different ways to file a complaint. Otherwise one ruling would suffice for all.
