From the White House down to school boards, there are a number of efforts being supported in an attempt to redefine the idea of gender. This Crosstalk focused on a number of such efforts, most from California.
–Assembly Bill 887—This bill communicates that if you have an employee that decides to cross-dress, there’s nothing you can do as an employer to stop it. Public school teachers would also be allowed to cross-dress under this legislation which makes no consideration for the protection of children. It only protects the psychological neurosis of the teacher.
–The Oakland, California, Unified School District wants to bring in a program called Gender Expression to elementary schools. It teaches that you can be a boy on the outside yet be a girl on the inside or vice-versa. The California teacher’s union put up money to support this.
–Harvey Milk Day recognizes the late Harvey Milk, a homosexual activist. According to Brad, the recognition doesn’t surround what he accomplished politically for the people; it’s merely for the fact that he’s recognized as the first openly homosexual man to be elected to public office in California.
–SB-48 requires that historians focus not on the achievements of certain individuals but rather on the alternative lifestyles they lived out.
–AB-433 would allow the issuing of new birth certificates to those who change their gender.
On the federal front, Christians need to keep an eye on the Student Non-Discrimination Act–HR-998/SB-555. This legislation would introduce alternate lifestyle options to elementary and secondary school children.
