Maryland Faces Yet Another Transgender Battle

You may have heard of some of the upset in Massachusetts as parents of public school children learned that their children could be disciplined for not affirming transgenderism.  That means that girls would have no recourse if a boy "identifying as female" wanted to use the girls' rest rooms.

Now this shadow is appearing in Annapolis once again.  Maryland Senate Bill 449, misnamed as "Fairness for All Marylanders Act", defines "gender identity" as "appearance, expression or behavior of an individual regardless of the individual's assigned sex at birth".  "Public accommodation" would of course include public schools, paving way for incidents in our own Maryland public schools.

This bill has been assigned to the Judicial Proceedings Committee.  Please contact them and ask them to defeat it in committee.
