Transgender Rights: Repeal effort behind in valid signatures

There are 5 comments on the The Press-Enterprise story from Dec 24, 2013, titled Transgender Rights: Repeal effort behind in valid signatures. In it, The Press-Enterprise reports that:

The latest data from the California Secretary of State's office shows that it may be a close call as to whether a measure repealing a transgender-student rights law will have enough signatures to qualify for the November 2014 ballot - or at least move to the next step in the verification process.

If they're fighting just to get on the ballot, this thing doesn't have a chance.

As a pre-op transsexual I wish there could just be a federal law prohibiting any kinds of abuse towards transgender people. It shouldn't be left to the states. I believe there is a huge need for that to be done.

I must be the only one who doesn't care! I know no law is going to stop it. Acceptance is what will stop it. Having us forced down someone else's throat will only aggravate the people who are prone to be against us. This is why I say "See and be seen!" Right now, we are an abstraction to most people, make yourself a reality, flesh and blood! I shop my local Walmart, My local flea markets, Lowes. Home depot, WaWa and many other stores. People go there with their kids a nd see me, The Village Phagg buying stuff. I don't Bite, Growl, yell and scream or make a spectacle out of myself. I just buy and go." Have a Nice day!"

I agree with that. I do the same as you. I live as a female so anywhere I go I am me. I have never had a problem shopping out of my town. Now in my town is rural and people are very backwards and ignorant. I shop a few miles out of my town and have no problem using the rest rooms or anything. People always address me as Ma'am or she or her, etc. So I wouldn't have a reason to yell or scream or whatever. I know people in my town talk about me but I'm old news now and as long as they just talk I could care less!

It's important to remember that acceptance is a evolutionary process!
