Children using same restrooms

EDITOR:

As a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, I am appalled at the new law letting our boys and girls use the same restrooms. What do you think you are accomplishing except to destroy the morals and respect that we teach at home?

What kind of governor and elected officials do we have that intentionally sees to slowly destroy the family values? This is not acceptable.

    It's only FAIR that FEMALES have access to the cleaner MALE restrooms.

    Full disclosure: Yes, I have wandered ACCIDENTLY into ladies rooms. I knew immediately, because it was pristine while the men's room can always be recognized as hell on earth.

    Obviously you did not visit the Yellowstone restroom where us guys took pity and stood guard while the gurls found sanitary relief.

    Lillian: Don't ever accidentally wander over to European shores where, horror of horrors, often one restroom is made to fit all. You'd have to keep your legs crossed until returning home.

    Really Really Lillian? With everything going on in this world that's what your worried about. I hate to sound like Miss America but how about world peace? Or maybe global warming, or starving children or even starving animals but bathrooms?

    Welcome to the "new" and unimproved Cal liberal's starring non other then the guy laughed out of office in the 1980's, yes the very same Brown stain on the state is back this time with some new Bay area friends and this time his Bay area values are what he wants to spread as his bucket list and last hurrah and any act of moral judgment he said is now out of style as are any normal family values and anyone with two parents of the opposite sex is outdated and all morals are to be reversed. It was obvious restroom discrimination for people with multi-gender feelings to not be able to switch at will and what was bad for them was they couldn't be themselves in opposite sex restrooms because their gender feelings could change so frequently. After all, these are public schools and it is his Bay area values that must be applied. He has much more to show you soon and will enjoy spending your money for his bucket list after all and he is just warming up. The next Bay area values last hurrah is for his other friends from across the open border with new entitlements for his millions of non-citizens he wants to become good govt. dependents as he said their crimes are now to be excused and new drivers licenses are to be handed out. He wants law enforcement to not hold anyone illegally in the country as required for deportation under federal immigration laws, just like AG Holder. His friend, Ali- Bummer, agrees that the law is outdated regarding requirements for legal immigration and citizenship, especially regarding his relatives from Kenya, and definitely his own personal struggle over the requirements to be a US citizen to be President under the Constitution.

    @ David, yes, really, she should be worried. Society is constantly criticizing parents for not 'doing their job' and teaching kids manners and such. @ Lillian, some parents morals may not be the same as yours, but I do agree that this is an issue. I suppose the Merriam-Webster people should be addressed to update their definition of male and female to dictate that this defines your sexual organs. If you are all male or female everywhere but 'there' then 'there' is what should dictate which restroom you use. I don't agree with transgender surgery but who am I to judge, parents and caregivers just need to be ready and armed with explanations of why Billy is in the girls bathroom or Susie is in the boys. It's simple really!

    David, you do sound like miss America. Determining the direction this country is heading in is made simple by watching what our elected leaders occupy themselves with.

    He's a govenor that has ZERO concern except gaining more and more liberals to vote for him. Gov. Moonbutt has proven time and again he is nothing short of senile. He signs rediculous bills and is a danger to this pathetic state, just as his old dear dad was. Moonbutt appointed the criminal loving Rose Bird yrs ago and has continued to deprive this state of Law Enforcement all while letting out felon after felon into our communities. He is a pathetic senile old goat who needs to be put to pasture......in the hood where the criminals live.

    If its really about family values then why not just kick it original family values old school Laura Ingles style and squat behind the tree. The original El Dorado County shared facilities.

    Nite Fran! (Sockpuppet says 'mmmph mml'; I believe that translates as 'goodnight' in his native Algadon. Or 'gimme the range rover keys I'm ballin the club'. We'll go with the former.)
