A California judge suggested some parents posed a “clear and present danger” to LGBTQ students in a ruling Wednesday against a Southern California school district.
San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Thomas S. Garza blocked a Chino Valley Unified School District’s newly passed parental notification policy, which required staff to inform parents if a student identified as transgender. The temporary restraining order was issued in response to California Attorney General Rob Bonta’s lawsuit against the district over the notification policy.
During the hearing, the judge reportedly compared students changing gender to changing their religion.
“Let’s say that a student were raised under one religion, then decides to change that religion on their own, at whatever age,” Garza said according to The Washington Free Beacon. “With that in mind, whatever the class of protected students are, students are students. Whatever makeup that they comprise, it strikes me that you are singling out a group that is exposed to a clear and present danger.”
