California Gov. Brown signs transgender-student bill
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill into law Monday afternoon allowing the state‚Äôs transgender public school students to choose which bathrooms they use and whether they participate in boy or girl sports.
The law would cover the state‚Äôs 6.2 million elementary and high school kids in public schools.
Supporters say the law will help cut down on bullying against transgender students, The families of transgender students have been waging local battles with school districts around the country over what restrooms and locker rooms their children can use....
Sorry to hear that, WS. That is something that sticks with you for your entire life...every day like it just happened. Soap never seems to get you clean enough and your outlook on the perpetrators, their supporters, and defense of the victims is always a bit tougher than those who led more sheltered lives or who were spared such horrors because they can't relate/fully understand. Unfortunately, short of Christ, many victims turn into abusers themselves. Not sure why this is but those are the statistics.
I was raped as a child. I will not tolerate a boy or girl entering the opposite sex bathroom in public. Should I ever witness a homosexual attempting to do this I will make quite the scene! America is judged by GOD...
Godly parents are to endeavor with Gods help to prevent the harmful and hellish influences of the world among their children. We are guardians and have a DUTY to protect our children. Which involves a careful watching over what material they are exposed to,what company they keep,what places they go..etc. Deuteronomy chapter 7 is very clear on this matter.
In many rural schools, there are no bathrooms separate for teachers. Can we expect the transgender-male teacher to go into the girls restroom? Honestly, if Christians can't see this coming... While your kid is being a "light to the world" I am sure they will have other "illuminating" experiences now, too. This is sick and perverted.
i found this guys investigative work and i think it bears repeating

Pursuit of happiness in the documents isn't the problem. Drifting away from the understanding of who God is, and his place in the affairs of nations is.
Psalm 144:15 "Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD."
Proverbs 28:14 ] "Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief"

I think Heaven bound had a good idea about the 3rd restroom. Give them their own, one person, restroom instead of allowing them to mingle with whatever sex they wish. How will this plan stop normal males and females from randomly using each other restroom as will? Kid are kids with the hormones and testosterone are flowing, so I think a seperate, one person, restroom is a good idea. I can't believe that kids are being tricked into believing that they are boys/girls in the wrong bodies. Yes Andy Cohen, and Perez Hilton...it IS a choice.
Way to go, Governor. What's always interesting to me is that many of the people writing these types of laws, enforcing them, lobbying for them, and supporting them, go to church and consider themselves Christians. They can't possibly be, of course, but I guess they think going to church (mass), taking communion, confessing their sins to a priest, etc, saves them. I can't imagine that they are Baptists, Pentacostals, Charismatics, etc, but who knows, I guess. Episcopals maybe.
They are going to need 3 bathrooms now. One for the boys, one for the girls, and one for the verts.........THAT'S SHORT FOR PERVERTS......and who is going to have to clean up after all of them. From experience, ZOO ANIMALS WOULD BE EASIER, AND THEY WON'T BE STRIVING AND TALKING BACK, as long as you make sure they are well fed. Pink, blue, and yellow bellies.....or should I say bullies......
