Calif. lawmaker removes son from school over transgender law

Friday, August 16, 2013

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A Republican state lawmaker says a new California law allowing transgender students to choose which restroom and locker room they use is part of the reason at least one of his sons will not return to his local public school this fall.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, who lives in the Southern California mountain community of Twin Peaks, described his family’s decision in a column published on WND, a conservative website.

He wrote that under the bill from Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, the privacy rights of California students “will be replaced by the right to be ogled” and will encourage inappropriate behavior among hormone-driven teenagers.

“While trying to address a concern of less than 2 percent of the population, California is now forcibly violating the rights of the other 98 percent,” Donnelly wrote.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill into law on Monday, making California the first state to put such transgender pr otections into statute.

Donnelly told the Associated Press on Friday that his 13- and 16-year-old sons, who attend Rim of the World Unified School District in the San Bernardino Mountains, were “horrified” to learn they might have to share a restroom with female students.

He is pulling one son out of middle school, while another son is uncertain if he will return to his public high school. The decision is one that his family already had been discussing before the bill was approved.

The law, which will take effect Jan. 1, gives students the right “to participate in sex-segregated programs, activities and facilities” based on the gender they identify with as opposed to their birth gen der. Those programs also include sports teams.

Supporters said it will help reduce bullying and discrimination against transgender students and note that the state’s largest school district, Los Angeles Unified, has had such a policy for nearly a decade.

But detractors say allowing students of one gender to use facilities intended for the other could invade the other students’ privacy.

Donnelly, who is exploring a bid for governor next year, said he is hearing concerns from a growing number of parents across the state. Some of those parents have told him they also plan to remove their students from public school, although he said the parents he has spoken with have declined to speak publicly about their decision.

Donnelly’s comments Friday came as two conservative groups opposed to the law, the Sacramento-based Pacific Justice Institute and Capitol Resource Institute, filed language for a ballot referendum with the state attorney general’s office seek ing to repeal AB1266.

The justice institute also is distributing a form that parents can send to school districts, stating that their child’s rights include the right to privacy from students of the opposite gender in situations such as changing clothes.

Brad Dacus, the institute’s president, said the organization has drawn significant interest from parents who are upset by the new law. He said the form “puts the school district on notice that students aren’t surrendering their rights to privacy.”

  34. Here´s where all of these “worried and offended” people are wrong about the “opposite gender” issue. A trans girl IS NOT A BOY IN ANY SENSE and a trans guy IS NOT A GIRL IN ANY SENSE. There ya go, girls with girls and boys with boys, but these bigots don´t get it.

  38. Where are these bathrooms these people speak of where you can go in and gawk at people while they do their business? Because I want to avoid them at all costs. I thought most bathrooms had stalls and doors and privacy, but apparently these legislators and moral crusaders have stumbled on some den of iniquity where bathrooms are round-the-clock peepshows!

    Although… I have to wonder how it is they´re so proficient in such matters. In all my years, bathrooms have only meant one thing to me and I never even conceived of using them to stare at someone at their most vulnerable. Are these people possessed of unsavory habits? Hmmm… it would explain so much…

  45. while the congressman is entitled to his opinion and is allowed to do whatever he sees fit for his son – does not mean that a law should be created to ban trans people from being allowed to choose a bathroom. First of all – why does anyone have to know a person is a trans sexual? Gay people use the bathroom of their gender. So if you are a trans person and you´re presenting as a woman – go to the ladies room. I don´t see the problem UNLESS the problem is that trans people are announcing what bathroom they want to attend. And then I read the rest of the post and well – maybe there aren´t even any trans people in the community? So what is the fuss really about? I´ll tell you what – Republican House members sliding on the very shit they project onto the rest of us. STFU Republicans – it´s because of these tea party maniacs America has been turned on its head with racism, gender assassinations and in general bullshit of the first order. Go away – can´t we send these GOP jerks someplace?

    Posted on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 2:51am
  46. Are we really helping anyone´s cause by spewing hatred ourselves? California has made a decision to further equality. As a gay man I know that change always comes with back lash. I feel sorry for his sons, they are paying the price for the lessons of the father. Rise above the hate, and prove that we will not sink to the level of name calling or discrimination. Congrats Governor Brown for doing the right thing.

    Posted on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 8:31am
  87. So his son will be home schooled, lacking much significant knowledge and always acting a little bit off key when emerging into society later on in life. Great parenting right there. Unless they hire a *proper* private teacher, but I have a feeling they won´t.

  94. When are you people going to get over it? Such a big problem, which bathroom can I use? Just because someone is gay or transgender doesn´t mean they are on the prowl for sex. They are just children who were born with a different life style. It infuriates me for adults to act like their children are better. Get over it and let these children be who they are and they will get along fine.

  97. This is absolutely stupid! But to the gentleman Matthew about who stated its unnatural. So many say the same about is LGB part of the LGBT community. But the only time I have ever disliked a transgendered human being is I have heard from some of them that the LG part of the community is going to hell because if gay men lust for men then they should have been born a female and same with lesbians, if they lust for female they should have been born a male. And we need to seek GOD and come to terms with who we truly are. And of course blah blah blah! But that is not how most transgender humans feel.

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:27pm
  155. Unless the kid is doing some really heinous things in that school, it´s pretty unfair to group him in with his father for this kind of thing. Come on, I know you´re all better than that. Keep the blame where blame is due, don´t take it out on the unfortunate one caught in the middle of his father´s shenanigans.

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:28pm

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:34pm
  164. Interesting and sensitive topic. The parents are concerned about their kids privacy? Have they considered that the trans identifying kids may very well be attracted to their same gender assigned at birth peers? In which case, those male identifying kids are sharing bathrooms with your daughters and the female identifying kids are sharing with their sons under most laws as they stand. If you´re worried about ogling, I would think you´d be vying FOR this bill, not against it. Just saying…

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:34pm
  165. Good ! we don´t need hate like he promotes in his family affecting our children in school

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:40pm
  176. He´s being so ignorant. I mean think about it. He´s worried about transgendered students, particularly the ones that identify as a male, because his sons will be using the same bathroom as them. Well, I´m not too sure what he´s concerned about. They´re people just like everyone else and they want to comfortably be able to use facilities and live as the gender they identify with. These transgendered students are not looking to ogle or anything. They´re looking to be accepted for who they truly are.

    And if he´s worried about privacy in the restrooms…come on. Kids have been having sex in school bathrooms for years, and the locker rooms, pfft. Who has privacy in there to begin with?!

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:40pm
  177. at least he won´t be in the PTA

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:44pm
  178. if his concern is “ogling”, he may very well try to ban gay boys and lesbians from using their own gender´s bathrooms. his excuse is so weak. i doubt he will achieve much.

    Posted on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:49pm
  179. It´s his right as a parent to pull out his child out of public school, I´ll give him that one, BUT as a civil representative of the public/people why is he still being allowed to be a lawmaker and why are we allowing him to be part of the decision making process when it is now BLATANTLY obvious where his intentions lie. Throw his BIGoted ass out for not doing his job, he should be professionally impartial when making the laws!
