Ca. Transgender Law Allows Boy to Join Girl's Softball Team
Keep in mind that this law came into being in California, where (not long ago) the voters utilized the recall process to throw out their governor and hold new election.
In that same state, any individual can proclaim that he or she belongs to a gender of choice, and rather than rising up in revolt, everyone sits on their hands.
If this particular individual is sufficiently skilled at softball as well as having the strength and speed as the average high school-age boy, the sport will be ruined. Not only will other in-state high school teams be at a clear disadvantage, but any potential games played out-of-state could face legal challenges from teams that do not have boys on their rosters and are not (yet) fettered by Orwellian laws.
We must also note that this player may get a starting spot on the team, which means that a high school girl will lose the position - for which she spent years of effort to earn, to a boy.
Cultural Marxism has been a phenomenal success; the minds of citizens have been turned into mush, and an entire state has been rendered dystopian.
"A California high school student who believes he is a girl trapped in a boy's body just made the girls' softball team.
Pat Cordova-Goff, 17, a strapping senior at Azusa High School, in Azusa, an hour east of Los Angeles, can play with and against girls because of a September change in state law went into effect last month. The law requires that, “a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”
Goff, who is a cheerleader at the school, played freshman baseball when he considered himself a boy. He found out Friday that he made the cut [for the softball team].
“We feel really confident about her ability,” Azusa Unified Superintendent Linda Kaminski told local newspaper San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “No. 1 as a district, we want to ensure access to everyone, but we’re also committed to placing students on the team on their merits ...Based on her skills, Pat did make the team.”
The law was signed by Gov. Jerry Brown amid a gender debate that also included disagreement over which bathrooms students could use. Supporters have said that the law will help cut down on bullying against transgender students.........
Some feel that having Cordova-Goff play with young female athletes puts out an unfair advantage and sets a bad precedent.
“It’s intolerable of this young man to not accept an equal standing of girls playing girls,” Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, told FoxNews.com. “It is categorically unfair to biological girls to have to compete with a sexually-confused young man with stronger upper body strength, who makes the game board decidedly 'unequal.'"
“This mixed-up, in-your-face cross-dressing agenda is pushing more parents out of California public schools, which now have ten sexual indoctrination laws leading children astray," he added.........."
