California: right wing freakout over anti-discrimination bill signed by Schwarzeneggar
While the big news was that Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggar vetoed a marriage equality bill the other day, he did sign into law SB 777 (California Student Civil Rights Act), an amendment to the existing anti-discrimination laws covering educational institutions.
This bill would revise the list of prohibited bases of discrimination and the kinds of prohibited instruction and activities and, instead, would refer to disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic contained in the definition of hate crimes that is contained in the Penal Code. The bill would define disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation for this purpose.
…It is the policy of the State of California to afford all persons in public schools, regardless of their disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that is contained in the definition of hate crimes set forth in Section 422.55 of the Penal Code, equal rights and opportunities in the educational institutions of the state. The purpose of this chapter is to prohibit acts that are contrary to that
policy and to provide remedies therefor.
This has unleashed a torrent of hideous homo- and transphobia on the right that should be instructive to those looking at what we're up against with ENDA. A taste of the insanity and bigotry, from a Capitol Resource Family Impact email posted at Freeperland. It's below the fold.
Governor Schwarzenegger has signed into the law the highly controversial SB 777 (Kuehl) that will permit transgender students to enter the locker rooms and restrooms of the gender with which they identify.
Under the guise of preventing discrimination and bias against homosexuals, transgenders and other sexual variants, SB 777 will force innocent school children to accept alternative lifestyles.
“We are shocked and appalled that the governor has blatantly attacked traditional family values in California,” stated Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute. “With this decision, Governor Schwarzenegger has told parents that their values are irrelevant. Many parents will have no choice but to pull their children out of the public schools that have now become sexualized indoctrination centers.”
“SB 777 will result in reverse discrimination against students with religious and traditional family values,” stated Meredith Turney, Legislative Liaison for Capitol Resource Institute. “These students have lost their voice as the direct result of Governor Schwarzenegger's unbelievable decision. The terms 'mom and dad' or 'husband and wife' could promote discrimination against homosexuals if a same-sex couple is not also featured,” continued Turney. ” Parents want the assurance that when their children go to school they will learn the fundamentals of reading, writing and arithmetic-not social indoctrination regarding alternative sexual lifestyles. Now that SB 777 is law, schools will in fact become indoctrination centers for sexual experimentation.”
“We had hoped that the governor would once again veto this outrageous legislation but he obviously decided to side with the out-of-touch extremists that control the legislature. This law does not reflect the true values of the average Californian,” stated England. “True leadership means standing up for what is true and right. Governor Schwarzenegger has shown no such leadership on an issue that is vital to the future of our state. Instead, he has bowed to the pressure of the powerful homosexual lobby.”
“School boys have always made excuses to get into girls locker rooms–now they won't need any because it will be a state-sanctioned policy,” stated England.
These bleatings from the swamp are as intolerant as some of the comments I've heard on gay blogs over the past couple of weeks. Sad.

There. Fixed it.
Ahnold must have a few fags in some of his own old closets….
This is going to far IMHO. Arnold is losing his mind. The day my daughter has a male in her locker room I hope the girls gang on up on IT & beat the cr@p at of IT. The trans & gays are pushing us too far now. Give them their own schools or locker rooms. But to treat a male as if he really is a female when he isn’t is insane IMO. I hope the field hockey team gets these pervs. I just don’t care that they feel they should be female, they are not. Where are the rights of normal people & CHILDREN anymore? Is this going to be more of that for the good of the children bs?
So a perv(other than a transgender freak) can dress up like a woman and oggle them to his hearts content? I wonder, if the governator can be sued if a woman was raped in the dressing room?
How much will the state have to borrow to pay off girls raped by this law?
Unbelievable California. I have lost what ever respect I had for Arnold. He was a Dim in sheep's clothes!! And Rudy and Mitt are just like him. Somebody can easily run to the right during an election, but they'll return to their past as soon as the pressure is on. WAKE UP AMERICA!
Do locker rooms include bathrooms? Is there a dress code for entering the women’s bathroom? How does one prove that transgenderhood? If a transgendered just walks into a crowded women’s restroom, I see some very unhappy women. Women alone with a transgender in a restroom will feel very uncomfortable. I suppose that feelings do not count when a conservative’s ox is gored.
There’s one big toilet and they make you all go at the same time.
I’ve shared locker rooms with lesbians and there were never any problems. A transsexual – sorry, haven’t seen one that didn’t creep me out. They aren’t women. I suppose to Arnie and the lefties I’m just like an old-fashioned white segregationist who was repulsed at sharing facilities with blacks.
Okay, to throw a real hypothetical out there (since we’re dealing with people we already know to be disturbed), I ask you: What is going to happen when the first transgendered lesbian makes a pass at a gal in the lockerroom? Man I cannot believe I wrote that friggin’ sentence. What the hell is this country coming to? I keep looking up every day.
stereotypically associated? assigned sex? Hey, it’s either an innie or an outie and it is fairly damned obvious. That’s not stereotyping, it’s genitalia.
That happened to me years ago in a biker bar. I tend to look under the stall doors to see if there are feet so I know the bathroom is in use. Well these feet were pointing the wrong way. I waited & asked IT why IT didn’t use the men’s room if IT had the nerve to be dressed as a woman. It said IT would be beat up if IT did. Later on It came on to a biker I knew & IT did get beat up rather badly.
Why couldn’t all these Califormorons come up with a bill funding research into trasgenderism instead, so that a cure could be found, and these poor people could become one with their sex, as it were. Schwarzedoofus strikes again!
Well ladies; this is the result of you being friendly with strange men who walk and talk funny and want to mutilate themselves. Please let us know how this turn
s out for you.
It’s about as believable as a good-looking grown woman in NYC living with a gay guy she wants to sleep with, who is also into watching male gay porn. Yup you bump into these gals every-effing-day, right?
How will the women know whether that male looking female who just walked in is actually transgendered and not just a perv? And vice versa? Will it be a hate crime to ask? Yeah, it probably will…
unfortunately this is just the beginning. Diversity is the new word used to discriminate against moral, decent, God fearing Americans. If you dont abide you will be ostracized. We need to start speaking out about the use of diversity and tolerance. Diversity divides us and tolerance is nothing more than a lack of reason. The left has used this expertly do not be afraid of being called a racist because you think that character trumps race and humility trumps racial pride. Either we start speaking out very soon, and supporting companies and organizations which reject the diversity lies or you wont be able to speak out at all.
How will the women know whether that male looking female who just walked in is actually transgendered and not just a perv? And vice versa?
Simple enough. Keep your eyes down, your mouth shut and your hand on the keys/mace/pistol in your pocket. If they touch you, DON'T scream, just shoot and run. Probably be good to keep your head down so the video camera doesn't get a good image of your face too… Standard procedure for being in hostile territory.
Aren’t there enough ugly real females in locker rooms already without letting ugly fake women in?
