Legislator Pulls Son Over Transgender Law
A California legislator has pulled one of his sons from public school after Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that provides transgender students explicit protection on campus.
According to the Associated Press, Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a Republican, said he was withdrawing the 13-year-old because the law approved by the Democratic governor would replace students' rights to privacy with a "right to be ogled."
Starting in January, the law will allow transgender students to use restrooms and join sports teams based on the gender they identify with.
