Deceptively named 'Privacy for All Students' continues hobby of deceptive naming

by Jeremy Hooper

With it looking increasingly likely that the new law designed to safeguard the transgender public school student's day-to-day education will go in effect despite their attempts to derail, California's anti-trans coalition is working overtime to misrepresent the new measure and its intent. Check out the part I put in bold:

Co-ed Bathroom Bill Update: Legislature Still Has To Hold It
12/30/2013

Sacramento, CA--A referendum has put on hold a 37 word bill which would have opened up restrooms, locker rooms and showers in K-12 public schools to students “irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”
Known as the Co-ed Bathroom Bill, Assembly Bill 1266 originally was due to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014. But voters in all 58 of California’s counties have put on the brakes by submitting more than 600,000 signatures to the Secretary of State.

"Know as the Co-Ed Bathroom Bill"? Um, no, No, no, no, no, no!

The law the legislature passed and the governor signed is, in fact, called and known as the School Success and Opportunity Act. The opponents cannot just give it a new name befitting their agenda and insist that it's an alternate title. That very well might be what they call it at their pity parties or even what they want Californians to start calling the measure, but they don't have the power to grant "known as" status just because they know the pseudonym would help them scare folks into supporting their discriminatory cause.

But deception is, of course, the order of the day on the other side. After all, this is the same crew that insists its movement should be known as "pro-family" when even a kindergartener can recognize that they are really anti-LGBT.
