Freak Show at State House: SD Gov. Meets with Transgender Students Ahead of Decision on Law Designating School Bathrooms by Biological Sex

I’m totally against guys who want to use the ladies room because they feel pretty that day.
  It’s a security issue is plain and simple.  Don’t let crazy activists confuse the issue with gender indentify nonsense.  Whatever sex they were born, that’s what God intended them to be and he doesn’t make mistakes.   

CNS News reports earlier this month, the South Dakota State Senate passed a bill already approved by the House that would reserve public school bathrooms for boys and girls based on their biological sex, but Gov. Dennis Daugaard has not yet decided whether to sign the bill into law or reject it.

Following protests from homosexual advocates – including a tweet from Caitlyn Jenner urging him to veto the bill – the Republican governor met with transgender students at an undisclosed time and location on Tuesday.

Daugaard’s spokeswoman Kelsey Pritchard confirmed the governor’s meeting to CNSNews.com and said he would make a decision on the bill by next Tuesday.

If approved by the governor, the law would bar transgender students from using bathrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities that don't correspond with their biological sex.

Republican state Rep. Fred Deutsch, the bill's author, has said the measure is designed to ensure the privacy of transgender and non-transgender students in the most private areas in schools, according to the Argus Leader.
