A bill to allow school kids to use which ever bathroom they want to use based on their “feeling” of what gender they want to be that day is on California Governor Jerry Brown’s desk and he is expected to sign it into law.
The controversial bill is aimed at giving transgender children the option of picking a bathroom representing the gender they identify with regardless of their physical anatomy. It would also allow them to play on whatever sports team the feel like choosing.
Supporters claim that transgender kids are made to feel alienated by being forced to use a bathroom not of their gender choice. According to Jesse Melgar, a spokesman for Equality California, the bill would end the sort of exclusion that “negatively impacts students’ ability to succeed in school and graduate with their class.”
