Pennsylvania - Project CommUNITY: Debate over transgender student rights in Elanco School District

Anne Shannon

Minersville, PA


please press:  www.wgal.com

ezs note:  I gotta tell you a story that is related.  In the movie Ma Vie En Rose (see it on Youtube if you have the chance)  Jerome and Ludovic are in the public bathroom to solve a dispute.  It happens just for a second or two, but a girl walks by.  Eek!  Horrors!  Uh... wait a minute.  Y'see, there are no boys' or girls' toilets in France, just 'toilets'.  And this is twenty years ago.

But this is the good ol' USA, where lawyers make a mint over the most trivial matters.  God bless America.  The lawyers are certainly blessed.

ezs note:  Texas residents - if this forum is still going on and you have the ability to get to Austin, please go to the State Capitol and speak.  If not, get on your computer and send e-notes urging the death of this silly bill.  Please send them out to the state rep and state senator.  Thanks.
