(Another guest-post by my husband.)
Homeschooling parents are often asked why they choose to homeschool their children. The fact is, the village school system provides no shortage of reasons why responsible parents should remove their child from the government’s influence as quickly as possible. AB 1266 is just one more straw to add to the camel’s already-broken back.
Most people are already familiar with the California State Assembly’s move to pass Assembly Bill 1266. California’s state legislature has been in the death-grip of the ideological Left for most of my voting life (or for as long as I can recall). They pass a continual stream of policies which cripple the state’s economy and sink the state further into the mire of moral confusion. Now the political Left in Sacramento want to appease a very confused minority group, regardless of how it embarrasses, inconveniences, or imposes on the conscience and privacy of the vast majority of normal students (I won’t say which political party proposed and approved this bill along party lines, but suffice it to say that the culprits are appropriately represented by a jackass). AB 1266 will allow any student to gender-bend his way into the locker-room or showers of children of the opposite sex (as well as infiltrate their sports teams). It doesn’t matter if boys will be able to violate your daughter’s privacy. All the ideological Left care about is imposing their tyranny of visions on the public. And if you don’t like it, they simply call you a bigot for opposing their twisted understanding of “equality”.
Such ideologues don’t stop to consider the logical conclusion of their policies. After all, high-school boys are in their hormonal prime, and if their hormones were to direct them to follow this policy where it naturally leads, why wouldn’t they declare themselves a female trapped in a man’s body in order to infiltrate the girls’ locker-room? In fact, why couldn’t a boy simply declare himself to be a lesbian trapped in a man’s body? This way, he could shower with the girls while also maintaining his sexual attraction to them. Frankly, the ideological Left could offer no rational opposition to such a scenario, because it is perfectly consistent with their premises. In fact, I suspect many on the Left would be happy to appease such a student (after all, it was they who gave us the sexual revolution, which divorced human sexual behavior from any moral restraint). It seems these people will not be satisfied until they have all boys and girls in the same showers and erase all vestiges of distinction between men and women.
And what about the consequences of students who gender-bend their way into each other’s sports-teams? Let’s acknowledge a simple fact: The reason men and women do not compete against each other in the Olympics is because a physically superior male will always be stronger than a physically superior female (yes, boys and girls really are different). Given such a fact, why shouldn’t a school which desires to dominate its league simply fill its girls’ sports-teams with “lesbians trapped in men’s bodies”? This way, it can have physically superior teams (although, real girls who can no longer make the cut will not be happy about being bumped out by a bunch of boys, but hey, we cannot allow such bigotry to exclude the oppressed and misunderstood “lesbians trapped in men’s bodies”). One seriously has to wonder what would happen if such a team won the state finals and went on to a national competition. What if other states refused to acknowledge such “girls” teams? Will the ideological Left, spearheaded by the ACLU, take it to the Supreme Court and force society to acknowledge such a sham? Some may believe these questions represent a slippery-slope fallacy. But let’s be honest; no one in their wildest dreams would have believed anyone would have stood before the Supremer Court and seriously argued that they have a “right” to marry someone of the same sex. And yet, here we are.
All the while, this ideological nonsense is endorsed by the village school system, a system which can no longer be seriously viewed as an academic institution. So the next time someone asks you why you choose to homeschool, avoid the long explanations and simply reply, “AB 1266”.
