A ballot petition in California aims to repeal transgender legislation, potentially requiring schools to notify parents of a child’s desire to transition and to limit girls’ athletic programs to female athletes.

The initiative also aims to prevent child sterilization procedures for minors.

The petition has gained traction, with strong support from voters. (Trending: Democrat Excludes White People From Holiday Party In Controversial Email)

The initiative’s proponents claim it aims to protect parental rights, privacy, and children’s well-being.

However, opponents argue that it demonizes LGBTQ youth and promotes hate and anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric.

“It’s protecting parental rights to know what’s going on with their kids at school,” Protect Kids California’s co-founder Jonathan Zachreson said.

“It’s protecting the rights of female athletes and students for their privacy.”

“And it’s protecting the rights of children to be able to keep their private parts and be able to grow into adults to be able to healthily reproduce.”

“If we are successful in California, it’s going to completely change the direction and conversation on this issue across the country and probably internationally as well,” he added.

“It’s extremely awful and it’s terrible that we’re going into 2024 and there are folks here in California that continue to demonize LGBTQ+ youth,” Protect Kids California’s communications director, Jorge Reyes Salinas stated.

“We know that none of this hate and anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric has a place here in California, especially knowing that 69 percent of Americans at-large support the LGBTQ+ community,” he added.

“We’re working with community partners hoping that this awful side of history doesn’t happen and that people don’t get the signatures that they’re trying to get.”
