Excerpt:Â What will Bill H1722â€™s ban on discrimination on the basis of â€œgender identity or expressionâ€ mean for our schools? All public schools will be required to permit â€“ and encourage -- unimaginable perverted transgender behaviors by students (and teachers, under the employment sections of the law). Even private and religious schools may eventually be affected since they could be considered â€œpublic accommodations.â€ Massachusetts public school curricula, special programs (diversity assemblies), and activities (GLBT clubs) will be forced to normalize transgenderism in all grades, K-12. There is no mention of â€œconscientious objectorâ€ exemptions for teachers and staff, or any respect for their freedom of religion on this issue. Counseling offices will be forced to support children identifying as â€œtransgenderâ€ or â€œbisexualâ€ (as they now are forced to support homosexual identities). Restrooms and locker rooms will have to be opened to opposite-sex students.
