Who Needs Radphlegm Trans-Exterminationists When Corporate Media Does the Work of Conservative Liars?

Looks like Sarah Palin to me – right down to the plastic doofus smile.

But I digress….

From Think Progress:

Opponents of California’s new law protecting transgender students (AB 1266) are intent on demonizing transgender students, and blogger Cristan Williams has debunked another fabricated claim of supposed restroom harassment.

One of the partners in the so-called “Privacy for All Students” referendum campaign against AB 1266 is Salt and Light Ministry, which is affiliated with Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship in Temecula, California. As Williams points out, the group has promoted the Pacific Justice Institute’s claims about a Colorado transgender student harassing girls in the school bathroom that have been proven false. Apparently, Salt and Light Ministry has also been spinning its own stories. The group’s leader, Dran Reese, told KGTV ABC10 News in San Diego last week that a transgender student at a Los Angeles high school was harassing other girls in the bathroom:

Reese pointed out a recent case in which a Los Angeles-area high school student complained to her school that a transgender boy harassed her and peeked at girls over the stalls.

The girl’s family hired an attorney, but has yet to file a lawsuit.

Williams was dubious of this claim and called the Los Angeles Unified School District to verify it — a step it seems KGTV ABC10 reporter Michael Chen did not take. Here’s how the district’s Office of Communications responded to Williams’ inquiry:

LAUSD: [The school] did get the complaint and it turned out that it was fabricated by one of the parents who opposes transgender students in schools. So it was an unfortunate situation, to have to put the students through, but it was fabricated.

That sound you don’t hear is Gay, Inc., time or money being expended to fight this. After all, there are Massachusetts-Gay-Marriage-Tenth-Anniversary Parties to plan and all.
