Transgenders, schools & using girls bathrooms

Editor, Manteca Bulletin

After the shock wore off, I am complied to comment on the proposed law to allow transgender boys (who and how will a person be labeled and certified a transgender?) in girls’ bathrooms and showers. If this happened when I was in high school I would have thought I died and went to heaven to receive my 75 virgins.

Does anyone realize the unintended consequences to this law?

First: when a girl reports a sexual assault by a transgender what will happen, will it just be shrug off?  How will schools protect girls from assaults, rapes and just plain invasion of privacy?

Second: There are cameras that can be hidden almost anywhere. Will pictures posted of girls lead to suicide of teenage girls? What about cell phones with cameras in them?

Third: Who will pay for the lawsuits that are generated from this stupid and reckless law? You got it - the taxpayers will pay again for stupidity of our fine elected officials.

Fourth: The ACLU and NAMBLA are licking their chops for this law to pass the lawsuits will be endless with the taxpayer on the hook.

I purpose that anyone that votes for, supports and passes this law be held personally responsible for any and all criminal and civil actions that precipitate from it.
