California likes to think of itself as ahead of the rest of the nation. There is much pride when this is proclaimed at different life-changing events.
Today California’s Governor Jerry Brown signed an unusual piece of legislation:
"California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill into law Monday afternoon allowing the state's transgender school students to choose which bathrooms they use and whether they participate in boy or girl sports."

As a parent, grandparent, and retired teacher, I see nothing but trouble ahead for this new allowance. It troubles me the events that may come to pass, the children who may be hurt, by this legislation.
I have taught students for whom this was a struggle. There was never a good solution, and I suspect this is not the solution.
Any ideas out there? I'd sure love to hear something...
