Bontasaurus Wrecks

California’s Chino Valley School District has established a policy of notifying parents if their children start “transitioning” to a different gender.  California attorney general Rob Bonta is suing the district on the grounds that the policy:

has placed transgender and gender nonconforming students in danger of imminent, irreparable harm from the consequences of forced disclosures. These students are currently under threat of being outed to their parents or guardians against their express wishes and will.

Gender identity is not a choice, and it is not a mental illness. It is an essential part of one’s identity and being, and cannot be voluntarily changed.

And so on. As Sir Bedevire (Terry Jones) might say, who is this who is so wise in the ways of biological science and the law?

In the state Assembly, Bonta was the prime mover of Assembly Bill 2088, which would have taxed former Californians 90 percent of their in-state levy in the first year after they left the state and 80 percent in the second year, phasing out over a decade. Bonta, a Yale law alum, believed it was legal to tax non-residents for ten years. The state AG now believes that telling parents about their children’s attempt to transition causes irreparable harm. As it happens, those parents have been subject to harm on other fronts.

Last year officials in the city of Reedley discovered an illegal Chinese bio-lab jostling with bio-engineered mice, potential pathogens, samples of infectious diseases including malaria, and hazardous chemicals. The lab posed a clear and present danger to all Californians but Gov. Gavin Newsom ignored it.  Attorney general Bonta acknowledged the lab’s existence but filed no criminal charges.

If  Gavin Newsom somehow makes his way to the White House, Rob Bonta, born in the Phillipines, would doubtless be Newsom’s “historic” choice for U.S. Attorney General. So despite what people might think, there could be an AG worse than Merrick Garland.
