Referendum to Repeal AB1266
AB 1266, recently passed into law, will allow school kids who "self- identify" as the opposite sex to use the bathrooms meant for the opposite sex. It also could potentially allow girls to participate in the guy's football team and vice versa.
A referendum effort has begun to repeal the law. That means getting it on the ballot so voters can overturn it. You can get your petitions here.
I consider myself a big time supporter of most LGBT friendly laws- same sex marriage, for instance- but I'll be supporting this referendum because I think AB1266 is bullshit. Having kids using bathrooms meant for the other sex, or at least having state law requiring it, is crap. Same goes for mixing guy sports with girl sports.
This is another example of the sponsor, Tom Ammiano, and other gay rights proponents pushing things beyond the limits of common sense and potentially making LGBT issues more polarized. It's unnecessary for the most part and I support overturning it. I hope the rest of you will do the same.
