Down On Long Island

A judge will have none of that! A judge tossed out a lawsuit to keep Nassau County  ban on trans students.
A federal judge has tossed out a lawsuit from Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman who had been looking to stop a challenge from New York Attorney General Letitia James over his decision to ban transgender women from playing sports at county-owned facilities.

In March, James demanded Blakeman rescind an order banning those athletes.

The ban still remains in effect, but now the attorney general's lawsuit can move forward.

In February, Blakeman signed an executive order banning transgender athletes from competing in girls' and women's sports at county facilities. Under the order, sports leagues now must submit documentation of their players' biological sex at birth.
Whenever anything goes before a judge, it becomes a crapshoot, and I’m always bitting my nails.
In a statement Friday, James said, "This decision is a tremendous victory for justice and the rule of law, but our work here is not done. County Executive Blakeman's executive order is transphobic, and we have no room for hate in New York. It's past time for Nassau County to rescind this order and treat all our communities with the basic respect and dignity they deserve."

While out in California the state says no way to a country ban on us.

State education officials say parental notification policy is illegal

Murrieta’s school district must stop enforcing a policy that requires parents to be notified if their child identifies as transgender, the California Department of Education ordered after finding the policy discriminates against transgender youth.

The Wednesday, April 10, letter gives the Murrieta Valley Unified School District five days to tell staff and students that the policy, approved in August, will not be implemented.

Department spokesperson Scott Roark said via email that the department “is unable to comment on pending investigations.”


Last month, the board voted 3-2 to keep the policy after Superintendent Ward Andrus proposed rescinding the rules. At that meeting, the board approved a motion “to develop and approve an administrative regulation with further clarifications on implementation of the new policy,” Gutierrez said.
Have you noticed something? The Republicans are for “Parental Rights” except when the parents don’t want what the Republicans beliefs.

For the last 4 days I have been up in New Hampshire for the funeral of my cousin, he was the last of my cousins on my mother’s side of the family. It is just my brother and me who are left of my maternal grandmother’s children.
