A bill that would have required California school officials to alert parents if their child identified as gender-nonconforming or transgender won't get a committee hearing, effectively killing the controversial legislation.Yes, California schools are really doing this:
Assembly Bill 1314, introduced by Assemblymembers Bill Essayli (R-Riverside) and James Gallagher (R-Yuba City), would have required school districts to notify parents in writing within three days if a student "is identifying at school as a gender that does not align with the child's sex on their birth certificate."
The bill sparked backlash from LGBTQ activists and organizations, ...
AB 1314 was assigned to the Assembly Education Committee, but the chair of the committee, Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance), announced Monday that he would not set a hearing date for the bill, meaning it was effectively dead before being considered for a vote. "This bill would require educators to 'out' a student to their parents, even when the student does not feel comfortable coming out, potentially forcing them into an unwelcoming or abusive home," Muratsuchi said in a statement. "All students deserve to be respected and supported for who they are, including at their schools." ...
In his statement, Muratsuchi called the bill "bad policy," arguing that giving it a hearing would also provide a "forum for increasingly hateful rhetoric targeting LGBTQ youth."
The California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus applauded the decision.
"The California Legislature should not provide a platform for anti-LGBTQ+ legislation that threatens the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ youth and empowers those who wish to cause harm," the caucus said in a statement.
Wednesday evening the Chico Unified School Board in Chico, California voted 3-2 in favor of schools having the ability to keep secrets from parents. The board agreed to keep their current policy, which directs staff to not reveal a child's gender identity to parents, it instead allows a child to determine when the school is allowed to tell parents about a change in their gender identity.If the bill were really bad policy, then a hearing would show the facts and evidence against it.
California Democrats do not want a hearing because their secrecy policy is indefensible. It goes against the scientific and medical facts, against parental rights, and against the interests of the kids. This is no good excuse for a school to withhold child info from the parents.
Muratsuchi said: "All students deserve to be respected and supported for who they are, including at their schools." But not at home? If the school somehow knows who the child is, why not tell the parents, so that he can be respected at home?
No, the parents might disagree with sexual mutilation, and the Democrats want to secretly push that.
I am trying to understand the trans activists, but this is just evil.
