Bathrooms: Privacy and decency don't equal hate

I have eight granddaughters and six great granddaughters. They are all minors. At school they have a right to shower, undress and dress in a locker room or use the bathroom without being viewed by someone born a male and having the genitalia of a male. That is not hate, it is common decency.

The state-mandated rule allowing transgenders in the facilities of their choice makes it easy for a predator to pose as transgender simply by telling school authorities he “feels” like a girl or woman. What has happened to the rights of those who believe and practice traditional values? Initiative 1515 needs to be put on the ballot and passed. If one disagrees with me, OK. But don’t force me to agree with you.
