The cultural debate over “transgender rights” in public schools has moved to California, where a legislative committee passed a bill Wednesday (April 17) that would outlaw sex-segregated bathrooms and athletic teams.
Under the bill — which passed the Assembly Education Committee by a vote of 5-2 — 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.”
This means that boys who say they identify as girls can use the girls’ restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa. It also means that girls who want to play on boys’ teams, and boys who want to play on girls’ teams, will be allowed to do so. The key will be their “gender identity” — what sex they identify as — and not their birth certificate.
So, boys, all you will have to do soon is tell the folk standing around the school bathroom that you just feel like a girl and you’ll be able to troll the girl’s bathroom to your heart’s content. And the girls will be able to troll the boy’s. Isn’t that special?
We live in a culture morally adrift and without mooring, compass, or course.
