A proposed California law will attempt to end gender discrimination in schools by, among other things, allowing boys to use the girls’ locker rooms and girls to use the boys’ locker rooms.

“AB 1266 forces San Francisco values on all California schools,” said Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resource Institute. “This is a very radical idea. You’re going to have first-grade boys going to the restroom next to first-grade girls without any supervision.”

San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a proponent for the bill, says that the legislation would allow transgender students the ability to access facilities based on their own gender identity.

“No student can learn if they feel they have to hide who they are in school,” he said in a statement.

When asked if using the same bathroom as members of the opposite sex might make parents or children ranging in age from 5 to 17 uncomfortable, Ammiano responded,

Discomfort is not an excuse for discrimination. – San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano

Our question to you is, do you think it’s okay for boys and girls to be using the bathroom together?
