Who wants to be a parent in California right now? Anyone? You in the back? Oh, your hand wasn’t up. Folks, the hardest job in the world right now in my humble opinion is to be a parent in California.
Here is my reasoning.
It used to be if you did anything out of line in school (I am talking daycare, elementary school, high school) your parents were notified. Yup, you wet your pants, got bad grades, talked back etc. parents were notified, usually with a call from principal, or a note from teacher. The results at home were never going to be good. Usually, you prayed your parents would get you late, at least it would prolong the time prior to punishment.
Those days are long gone.
California over the last decade has eroded parental notification in almost every sense of the word. If you have a girl (biological female) she can have an abortion and you wouldn’t even be aware? Oh, let’s go one step further, your child’s counselor can drive her to the abortion clinic and again, you would never even be told. That’s not just the law, it’s in the state constitution. If a teacher/admin notifies said parent, it’s termination. You violated that minor person’s rights. You get no due process. Meanwhile you will never even know your girl had an abortion done.
Gets worse though, believe it or not. Now your child will get to learn about sex-ed on steroids. Yep, just check out the new books entered into the curriculum these past few years. Now full-on sex is essentially taught. Also, gay/lesbian sex as well. Want multiple partners? Not a problem. Oh, by the way you cannot opt your child out of this? Sorry, even if it’s a religious based reason. Your child will learn that gay/lesbian sex and relationships are just fine, and you’re beliefs as a parent are bigoted. Cool. Maybe this is why at one of my mother’s charter schools (elementary) one student was caught performing oral sex on the opposite gender in a bathroom. Did either party get in trouble? Nope, because one student claimed their “parents would kill them” the school brushed it under the rug. No one found out. Yep, your child could have been on the receiving/giving end of this and you would never even find out. Yep.
Could it get worse? Yes, far worse.
Trans activists have gone even further. It’s scary. Not only is there a trans heavy curriculum; acceptance, and learning all the genders and pronouns, your child can even play dress up at school! Yep, if your child decides they don’t want to be David, they would rather be Dana, the school will take care of that. See after you drop off your child (elementary included btw) and your child tells a teacher/admin they identify as the opposite gender; they are led to a gender-neutral changing room. Complete with clothing the opposite gender wears. (Talk about lost and found.) They are free to play dress up. Even better, the children return to the office prior to you picking them up and change back into the clothing you dropped them off in. You never even know. Your child is cosplaying the opposite gender and you will have no clue.
Worse yet, did you know when your child is 18, they can/will go to Planned Parenthood and get a prescription for gender therapy drugs? Yeah, and you again will not know. They make the kid sign a CYA (cover your booty) disclosure document and poof; they get drugs to alter their sex/gender/look. Oh, under California law, all health insurers are required to pay for these gender bending children, but again it is illegal for you to be notified. After one year on the steroids, they can get their God-given organs cut off, again, thanks in part to mom and dad’s medical insurance. Aren’t you glad Obamacare allows them to be covered on your policy until age 26?
This above all can and will happen if your child just says they want to be a _____
My take on the issue is it is a sin and a crime to do this to a child, they are developing and have no idea about their identity yet. Just because a child goes through mommy’s underwear drawer doesn’t mean they want to be a girl. Heck even if child is in the men’s/women’s locker room/bathroom and sees a naked person of the same gender and doesn’t hate it doesn’t mean they are gay. And to keep it from their parents? WOW, just WOW. Then again, none of the above may apply, once a parent/teacher/authority figure manipulates a child to start down this road, it’s virtually illegal for them to turn back.
Oh, by the way, two school districts in CA have gone against the state mandate of not notifying parents, and CA Atty General Rob Bonta is suing them both. Yep, we have our priorities straight, don’t we? Reading, writing arithmetic (that’s math if you’re from Rio Linda) don’t matter. But if you want to play dress up… by all means we will provide.
I blame Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner for this. In my opinion this freak show took it mainstream. Target decided to make their bathroom policy use whichever one you want. Schools added pronoun education to their curriculum, and laws were put in place to stop corporations from terminating folks who were trans, making them a protected class. Bathrooms have been mandated to be gender neutral at some locations.
At my office our 2 gender specific bathrooms in the hallway were required to be changed. By orders of the City, they even sent in a very large muscular man to make sure they knew they weren’t kidding. If that wasn’t enough a $10,000 a day fine would be levied. At the salsa bar they converted the men’s bathroom to a “family bathroom.” By the way this likely runs completely contrary to the beliefs of the Hispanic family that owns/runs it. But oh well. Conform or be shut down.
The question we should be asking is why? Why are we normalizing this behavior? Why are we going behind parent’s backs? Check out the suicide rate for transgender folks… it’ll blow your mind. Do we know what these folks are truly injecting into their bodies? Do we? I think there are a lot of older adults who think it’s cute that children are making themselves into a real-life Mr. Potato Head. But they never thought of the consequences. You are not just wearing the opposite genders clothes, you are chemically changing your body, blocking certain hormones and adding others. Your biological body was not supposed to be exposed to this kind of punishment. This is the part that should be infuriating to a parent, because by the time you likely get around to finding out about your child, it is far too late. Under California law, a parent can go to jail and/or lose custody of said child if they object.
I want to ask you, if I am a biological boy and I choose after my 18th birthday that I want to be a girl, would you let me? My answer would be ok, I guess, your body, your choice, and you are technically an adult. I would be upset and hope my child would reconsider. My point being, why is it ok for a pre-teen to wear girl’s panties, a skirt, and a short cut top and not let their parents know? There is more to being a member of the opposite sex then wearing clothes, no matter if you tuck your package or put your fake tits on.
Still want to have kids in California? Think long and hard, as it appears some in our schools want to play with your children.
Also, how in the world did we let a miniscule percentage, a fraction of 1% of the population become shot callers on this? By God, we are screwed as a country.
