Some Californians are concerned over a Bill that passed through the State Assembly last month that would allow Transgender Individuals to bypass dress codes and crossdress however they wish. I think its a legitimate cause for concern.

California Bill Could Protect Cross-Dressing in the Work Force - FoxNews.com

"A California bill working its way through the state legislature providing more protection for transgender individuals in the workplace could allow for cross-dressing employees to wear whatever they want to work, despite workplace dress codes."

"If you have a mother taking her son to a store for back-to-school shopping and the retail clerk is a man dressed like a woman, the mother is going to take her son and go to another store," said Daucus."
"... an assistant director for a Christian-run daycare center in Calif.,... agrees that the law could have an impact."
"Even if we change our hair, the kids notice right away. If one day a teacher comes dressed like a man and then the next day as a woman, the kids will wonder 'What's going on?'"

It's one thing to say a person can do whatever they want on your own time and quite another to bring it into the workplace, let alone around impressionable children. Especially when it's someone elses impressionable children. It would be pointless to point out the reality of indoctrination by screaming that this is all about indoctrination, right?

Is the dress tasteful or tacky? And is he in heels that match with a dainty scarf, or some old scuffed pumps and a fake Gucci knockoff bag?

P.S. That's a man.

Since I don't buy into your heteronormative conceptions of "proper" gender roles, I therefore must not have children?

I'm missing the logical connection there.

Default Would You Mind IF Your Child's Male Teacher Wore A Dress?

Yeah if he's that mentally unstable he shouldn't be teaching. I say yes i would mind and I would remove my child from that class.

On the surface I would say yes, because it introduces an element into the class that would be distracting. But if you take it to it's logical conclusion and, say, have someone who lives their entire life and identifies as a woman then it wouldn't matter since nobody would see "man in a dress" but "woman" anyway.
