SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) California lawmakers approved a bill Wednesday that would require public K-12 schools to let transgender students choose which restrooms they use and which school teams they join based on their gender identity instead of their chromosomes.
Some school districts around the country have implemented similar policies, but the bill's author says AB1266 would mark the first time a state has mandated such treatment by statute.

OMG, a bill that doesn’t restrict gun rights further. Can we verify this? It can’t be true.
Oh good, my granddaughter will have her transgender rights protected from kindergarten on!! Wait, I don’t live in CA. I’m sure that OR will follow along as they usually do.
How much lower can we go?
Just a momentary side track, nothing to worry about ... the gun control group will put the ship of state back on course shortly.
Hey, that’s just what America wanted for her 237th birthday.
What this essentially means is that all gender distinction is gone. Any boy can join any girls team, and legally there is no way to stop it. He doesn’t even have to dress or “look” like a girl. He just has to say “I identify as a girl”, and next thing you know the field hockey team has some dude with hairy legs on it.
Does anyone legislator in California have a functioning brain cell?
The depravity knows no bounds.
So, if I was 16 and back in school, I could join the girls sports team and go into the girls locker room and showers?
Such a deal.
Hopefully global warming will take care of California and they will all be flooded by the rising tides.
Have to have fresh meat for the perverts.
The mentally ill are definitely running the show in CA.
NO WAY my kids would go to public school.
And when some kid “fakes his transgenderism” to exploit the policies, he’ll be charged with what? Insincerity?
What about the rights of NORMAL people???
OMG, a bill that doesnt restrict gun rights further. Can we verify this? It cant be true.
Some self-appointed genius will probably tack on an amendment to impose a new tax on ammunition to pay for the program.
Your close, think a but bigger.
The entire girls soccer, asjetball, volleyball, etc. team will be boys - good atheletes, but not quite good enough to get on the boys tream.
Let’s say I’m a 17 year old high school male.
If I claim I am a lesbian trapped in a man’s body does it mean I get to shower with the girls?
I’d like to think things will get back on track. It seems to me that we don’t express our outrage at our elected officials enough.
For instance, in CA we should put half a million people on the lawn of the capital building, making so much noise they couldn’t think inside.
We allow them to pass this stuff without so much as a whimper.
And how many sexual assaults will take place when men can freely walk into women’s rest rooms and locker rooms? How about when there are no more girls on the girls’ basketball and volleyball teams?
In response to one Freeper’s question, no, CA politicians do not have any brain cells left.
Yep, a distinct possibility.
It must be stopped.
It won’t be long before girls are punished for not wanting to shower with boys.
and if the girl says no, its a hate crime
Ah, yes, the silver lining. The resurgence of sports. Depending on what "sports" means.
Surely you jest.
Ha, ha, true. Maybe the WNBA will finally have an audience. ;-)
I don’t live in CA, and I am glad of it. And no power on Earth can convince me it would be a good idea to go there.
Not only that. But when you get to college you qualify for a lot more scholarships too......
And I’m a 17 year old female who claims to be a boy so I can shower with the boys!
I don’t have the parts but I feel like I’m a boy.......
what happens when girls and their parents try to say no to showering and popping with boys? You know they will be called haters and probably accused of hate crimes.
I live in Florida and I am so glad my sister just graduated high school. Phew!
And what happens when the parents do nothing?
Next year will be all sodomy, all the time, because of the SCOTUS decision. Sodomy is now a "civil rights" issue.
Parents will roll over, as usual.
eventually California has to collapse on its own weight.
Their constitution will have a crisis and be rebooted in bankruptcy. Perhaps California will finally be divided into three parts.
Dude at work (60 years old!) recently decided that he should have been a girl. So he makes a big announcement, and now he’s showing up in dresses and a wig and using the women’s bathroom. The gals are freaked out, but can’t say anything as he/she/it’s a protected class.
It would be a shame if he fell up three flights of stairs.
Don't blame the legislators, blame the voters that enable them.
The inmates are running the asylum these days.
Well, the dumber than dirt fascist legislators & their policially corrupt California school unions, have pissed down their legs any semblance of normality in a Kalifornia publik skool. I think there will be a heck of lot of testosterone driven male teen-agers to pee & shower with the girls. If there are ANY sane people left in Kalifornicate, PLEASE pull your kids (male or female) from the publik skools, or your kids are toast in terms of any moral or righteous values. And your kids will likely turn out to be perverts & socialist fascists themselves. Save your kids!!!
And your kids will likely turn out to be perverts & socialist fascists themselves
that is their goal
Actually I had the very same thought as well. It will be poetic justice for all the liberal Title IX bigots who fought so hard to establish parity among boys & girls sports teams (and BTW, in my former high school, there are at least 2 more girls teams than boys teams - but I digress), will now see CA girl sports teams inundated with horny boys pretending to be girls, that it will kill the Title IX agenda to get rid of boys teams. Instead the girls schools teams will eventually be demised because of having more boys than girls on the girls school athletic teams.
I’m sure the helpful publik skool administrators will be willing to “coach” other people’s children into what they view as a more diverse and tolerant gender selection.
oh, a lot, lot lower, believe you me.
California - guaranteeing that insanity is safe.
The government school system slow suicide continues.
And it means you get to have a fat, feminazi life partner
Some day you can grow up to be head of Homoland Security.
Get your kid a head start in the new gay culture...surgically transgendered and educated at nambla charter high school
You could even hook up with the ‘Hot’, teacher and nothing will ever happen to you.
Defund the left. End public school indoctrination now.
When California law PROHIBITED Communists from teaching and subversives from indoctrinating students, the law was unenforced. Do the same with this new law.
