Calif. OKs Boys on Girls' Teams, in Their Showers

The California Assembly has passed a bill that allows children of all ages to choose to play on either boy's or girl's sports teams and to choose locker room and restroom facilities of either gender.  The only thing a boy has to do to choose to be with the girls is to say "I feel like a girl today."

The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), a proud homosexual, is presented under the guise of equality for "transgendered" students, but no medical or psychological evaluation is required for students to choose -- only the student's opinions/feelings/statements.

Advocates said the bill would prevent transgender students from feeling ostracized at school and help them fully participate in sports and other activities.

[Ammiano] acknowledged that parents may be uncomfortable about their children sharing bathrooms with students of a different sex, but he said, "It's also important to protect our children from prejudice."

No Republicans voted for the bill, AB 1266, which goes to the state Senate for further consideration.

From "California Assembly Passes Transgender Bill Allowing Student Choice on Bathroom, Sports Team" by Alex Murashko, Christian Post Reporter 5/10/13

Several school districts, including in Los Angeles and San Francisco, already have policies that allow students to participate in activities and use facilities for the gender they identify with, according to local news reports. Should the bill also pass in the state's Senate and signed by the governor, it would ensure that all students have equal access, according to Ammiano.

"Will transgender students make some other children uncomfortable? Perhaps," Ammiano wrote. "I don't want to minimize that, but new experiences are often uncomfortable. That can't be an excuse for prejudice."

The bill is sponsored by the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Equality California, Transgender Law Center and Gay Straight Alliance Network.

From "Calif. OKs bill allowing boys in girls' restrooms" by Erin Roach, assistant editor of Baptist Press 5/10/13

Under the bill, a student will 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."

California's action follows a "transgender rights" directive issued by the Massachusetts Department of Education in February accomplishing everything the California bill does.

"By imposing this radical policy on all schools in California, the legislature seeks to take away local control from the school districts, parents, and communities," Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute, a faith-based political action group in Sacramento, said in a statement.

The bill’s author, openly homosexual San Francisco Democrat Tom Ammiano, has been an activist for lesbian, “gay,” bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, issues for decades and reportedly became in 1975 the first San Francisco public school teacher to make his homosexuality public. Ammiano later co-founded an LGBT organization with Harvey Milk, the homosexual activist about whom Hollywood made a recent feature film and California schools celebrate an annual day of remembrance.

By a vote of 46-25, carried without any affirmative votes from Republican lawmakers, the California Assembly passed the bill, AB 1266, which amends Section 221.5 of the state’s Education Code as follows: “A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

The bill would affect not only interscholastic sports, but also sex-segregated physical education classes.

UPDATE 6/12/14: From "Transgender Surgery Isn't the Solution" by Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, posted at Wall Street Journal

. . . policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention. . . .

You won't hear it from those championing transgender equality, but controlled and follow-up studies reveal fundamental problems with this [transgender rights] movement. When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London's Portman Clinic, 70%-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings.

. . . A 2011 study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden produced the most illuminating results yet regarding the transgendered, evidence that should give advocates pause. The long-term study—up to 30 years—followed 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery. The study revealed that beginning about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population. This disturbing result has as yet no explanation but probably reflects the growing sense of isolation reported by the aging transgendered after surgery. The high suicide rate certainly challenges the surgery prescription.

At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered. "Sex change" is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.
