You've likely heard about the School Success & Opportunity Act, the recently passed and signed California law that grants increased safeguards and protections to transgender schoolchildren. If you have, you've likely also heard about the anti-transgender coalition that's trying to repeal this law. So far, their strategies have involved fabricating stories of harassment, claiming transgender students are "inherently harassing," and encouraging their followers to harass transgender students on line.

My questions are: "They're getting paid to do this? How much and by whom? And how much pay would they think necessary to work on solutions? Isn't criticism without proposals for alternatives pointless? If they cannot offer alternative solutions which would be preferable, why insist on repeal of a law which has had no ill effects apart from making ignorant and prejudiced people uncomfortable?"
