Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law Monday that would require schools to treat students according to their gender identity rather than their physical gender.

Assembly Bill 1266 was written by Tom Ammiano (D) San Francisco. It grants transgender students access to previously gender-specific facilities, like bathrooms and locker rooms, and activities.

The bill was passed by lawmakers in July, and was sent to Brown’s desk earlier this month.

AB 1266 is among 21 bills the governor signed Monday.

    i think this is great, being transgendered my self,

    having grown up thinking i was weird, kids today have it great. they have the web and are accepted in society and not treated like they have the plauge.

    but as for using the bathrooms at school, no problem just as long as said student is know as trans. as some boys would love to get into the girls locker room πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Šand also some girls into the boys locker room.

    i would have loved to had this chance in my youth, just to be my self and not having to live how others said i should be.

    sure there will always be the bigets, but really who goes into a restroom to view others? most only do what is needed and get on with life.

    do not proscute the one in the stall, go after the one looking through the cracks.
