    California Republican Party to go after transgender kids’ rights

    The openly gay vice-chairman of the Republican Party in California has warned that his party will try to use transgender students’ access to the bathrooms and changing rooms of their choice to wedge state Democrats and mobilize political donors

    The ghost of Proposition 8 returns…

    Given all the similarities to Prop 8 messaging, it’s no surprise that the National Organization for Marriage is behind a petition drive to overturn a transgender student rights law

    It's so nice to see that the REPUBLICANS have added another group of Americans to the long list of people they HATE and PERSECUTE.
    The only difference is that this time it's the most vulnerable children.
    Another reason I'm disgusted by this hate group that pretends to be a political party.
    Republicans have so many reasons to be proud of themselves. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Calif. must count rejected petitions in challenge to transgender rights law


    http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2014/01/calif-must-count-rejected-petitions-in-challenge-to-transgender-rights-law/

    I think that it is fair that they are counting them but the organizations that got the signatures were dirty on what they told people to get them to sign the petition.

    Well, I'm quite Liberal, but I don't see why 99% of kids must change to a coed restroom because of a single transgender kid. Why should they have to be made to feel uncomfortable because of this one kid's issue?

    ^
    why should we teach children to be uncomfortable? Why not just teach children that some people are transgender. It is not like people go around waving their genitals around in the bathroom. People fear what they don't understand and we still have a large percentage of the population that still does not understand. We should not encourage ignorance to continue just to make people feel comfortable.

    So everyone who doesn't want to go to the bathroom with the opposite sex in the room is "ignorant?"

    That's idiotic. Try walking into the lady's room next time you have to piss. Be sure and tell them how ignorant they are as they're screaming for security.

    Transgender students 'just looking for their place in the world'


    The fight for gay rights has essentially been won. So why is anyone worried about giving legal protection to transgender minors?

    While men just have to accept without complaint the women who come into the mens restroom. I've had it happen to me many times, a fairly regular occurrence. Do you think I ran out and called security?

    A perfect example of one-sided sexism, where men are the victims. But God help the man who intrudes in a women's restroom, though, at least in the US. You're gonna see some jail time. icon_confused.gif

    Restrooms are built and designed according to physical anatomy and not really gender. Unless the transgender gets a sex change operation, they should really use the restroom designed for their physical anatomy and not their gender. If you don't have a penis, you don't really belong in a restroom with urinals. I also can see this being used by sexual offenders claiming to be transgender when they really aren't.

    With all the sexual perverts out there, I can see guys claiming they are transgender, even though they aren't, just to gain access to the women's bathroom. I know at the gym I go to that unless you can show that you have a vagina lol, you better not be in the women's locker room or you will be arrested no matter what gender you claim to be. haha
