Kansas Bill Targets Transgender Students

Associated Press - March 26, 2016 6:16 am

Legislation in Kansas that would restrict how public schools and colleges accommodate transgender students is receiving national attention.

Under separate but identical bills before House and Senate committees, students would be able to collect monetary damages if someone was in what is deemed the wrong bathroom.

The bills are described as privacy protections for students and limit accommodations for transgender students. The measures say group bathrooms, locker rooms and showers must be limited to a single sex, and gender would be defined “by a person’s chromosomes.” If transgender students were discovered using group facilities for their identified genders, other students present can sue the schools and colleges.

Budget fiasco, tax problems, stealing money from children’s programs, Department of Transportation and state retirement funds, closure of hospitals, patient rapes at state hospitals……the list goes on and on. Now finally our governor and legislature is working on the important issues facing our state. They are offendingly misguided.

This is needed as people will be pretending to be transgenders to get into the opposite sex rest rooms for their perverted fun. They should never be given that right considering the society we live in now.

What a false title. Should be Kansas takes steps to protect straight students. As far as I am concerned is you are what you were born as not what you think you want to be.
