California Lawmaker: Transgender Bathroom Law Distracts From Learning

By    |   Tuesday, 20 Aug 2013 07:22 PM

The California lawmaker who pulled his son from school to protest a new law — which allows transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice — fears it may lead to lurid sexual exchanges, even rape.

"You could have a daughter in school and have a teenage boy come in there and take a shower next to her naked," Assemblyman Tim Donnelly told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below.



"He just tells administrators, 'Yeah, I was just feeling confused,' and he can walk in there. And now you violated the privacy rights of 98 percent of the students."

Donnelly, who represents the Twin Peaks area, said he won't allow his 13-year-old son back in middle school following the law Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law last week.

It requires schools to allow transgender students from kindergarten to 12th-grade in bathrooms and locker rooms based on the sex they identify with, not necessarily the sex they were born.

"This was very strictly a massive overreach of government power. It's a government intrusion into where the government is forcibly violating the right of privacy," Donnolly said.

"Any kid that might be prone toward being a rapist, now he's got the perfect opportunity . . . Now they're going to let [in] grown teenage boys whose hormones are raging.

"There's no longer that barrier where a parent or a teacher or a coach can stop you at the girl's door or locker room. You now get to go in there and you have every right to be there and you are protected by state law."

Donnelly said the law also applies to joining sports teams, which could add to even more confusion.

"So if you feel like you're a girl today, you can play on the girls' volleyball team," he said.

"There's an unending amount of bad that's going to come out of this and it is going to be a massive distraction from the goal of learning."

Donnelly said there has already been a referendum filed in a bid to repeal the new law, which goes into effect on Jan. 1.

"It is quite possible that we could gather the 500,000 valid signatures required. There's a tremendous amount of outrage. Everybody in California is talking about this bill."
