Transphobic Activists Claim They’ve Got Signatures to Repeal Calif. Student Law

A bunch of evil so call “Christians” have found another vulnerable group to abuse.  Sort of like the Nazis these people love to deny certain classes of people the same rights the, themselves enjoy.  Including the right to pee in a public restroom.

On top of that the bigots advocating for the repeal of this bill protecting the rights of transkids in schools are compulsive liars, utterly incapable of telling the truth about anything.

From The Advocate:

Conservative activists within the Privacy for All Students campaign claim they gathered more than half a million valid signatures from Californians who want the chance to repeal the state’s new law regarding transgender students.

Famed antigay campaign strategist Frank Schubert — who led successful efforts to block marriage equality in Maine and North Carolina and helped pass California’s unconstitutional Proposition 8  — has set his sights on California’s AB 1266, a new law that would allow transgender students to use the facilities and play on the sports teams that correspond with their gender identity.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1266 into law in August, making California the first state in the country to provide statutory guidance on the equal rights of transgender students. The law is set to take effect January 1 unless opponents qualify a ballot initiative to repeal the law.

But Privacy for All Students, the conservative coalition leading the charge to repeal the law, immediately announced its plans to rescind the law by putting it to a popular vote in 2014.

And on Sunday, Schubert told the Associated Press that his campaign turned in 620,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office — more than 100,000 more signatures than required by law to qualify an initiative for the ballot. The Secretary of State’s office will now begin the process of verifying the signatures, and if at least 505,000 signatures are from legitimate, registered California voters, the initiative will qualify for the 2014 ballot.

In addition to Schubert, who led the campaign’s signature-gathering effort, the antigay National Organization for Marriage has lent its support to the transphobic campaign. In a fund-raising email last month, NOM president Brian Brown said that “nakedness trumps sincerity,” asserting that the law established co-ed bathrooms in schools around the state.

“I do not want a naked boy in front of a young girl in the shower or bathroom even if he sincerely identifies as a girl,” wrote Brown. “How can we claim that this [law] will decrease bullying, when forcing boys and girls to share bathrooms IS bullying?”
