Some day, you'll appreciate this opportunity to quit filling your head with nonsense.
The headline of the L.A. TIMES article reads: “California transgender students given access to opposite-sex programs.” The headline conspicuously ignores that the text of the law also provides for equal access to facilities (i.e., toilets, showers and locker rooms), not just programs.
As a result, boy students can now use the toilet and showers previously set aside for girls, so long as the boys go through the charade of pretending they “feel” like a girl that day.
In fact, the law specifies that access must be provided “irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records” (emphasis added).
So why would a high-school boy bother waiting until prom night to see naked the girl that he has a crush on? Now, he can just declare that he “feels like a girl,” and on Tuesday after 3rd period gym class — Voila! — he is entitled to shower with all of the girls. Did none of California’s state legislators ever see the movie “Porky’s” ?!?
Surely they do not intend to increase teen sexual activity, and unwanted premarital, school-age pregnancies. But that is of no moment. Such tragic, life-trajectory altering events will undoubtedly occur, just as surely as the sun rises in the east each morning.
Amid all of its myriad financial woes, sparing the feelings of “not belonging” among an infinitesimal segment of the student population is the main priority for California’s state assembly. The Left, which controls California’s state assembly with a democrat super-majority, has chosen divisive social positions as a diversion from the fact that they are doing absolutely NOTHING to avoid the economic disaster ahead. At the same time, they get to seem “heroic” to their LGBTQIA (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/questioning/intersex/asexual) base. The rest of the world can pound sand, for all they care, because anyone who opposes such “progress” can be shouted into shamed silence by the PC-enforcers of our legacy media (most of whom failed to report the enactment of this horrendous law).
Apparently, in California, there is no such thing as rock bottom.
Despite the unsupported disclaimer at the end of the L.A. Times’ article in support of AB 1266 (known as the “School Bathroom Bill“), which states “The vast majority of California students who do not identify as transgender have a reasonable privacy expectation that they will not be forced to undress or share bathroom, locker room, shower and sleeping facilities with members of the opposite biological sex,” the law MANDATES that students be allowed to use whatever bathroom or shower facilities they see fit, irrespective of whether they have a penis or a vagina.
Never mind how humanity has defined maleness or femaleness for thousands of years.
This is what unchecked liberalism looks like. Fiddle while Rome burns. Who cares what truth is? If you feel like saying you’re female today or male tomorrow — or even if you feel like you’re a Wookie — who are we to say there’s anything actually called reality to deal with?
The Ostrich’s head is in the sand as a matter of public policy.
