It's interesting as to why they would do this.
The article says:
The bills include SB777, which bans anything in public schools that could be interpreted as "negative" toward homosexuality, bisexuality and other
"alternative lifestyle choices." There are no similar protections for students with traditional or conservative lifestyles and beliefs, however.
But I myself have a good friend, from School who had a mother and she had a female partner. He referred to them both as his: "mum" and I've seen
cases of two men with a child and the child calling them both "dad".
I mean, I can't see any groups calling for this because it just seems...pointless. It seems to be a case of "pandering" so that ol' Arnold can say
he "cares" about the rights of homosexuals, etcetera.
As for the "locker rooms" i think it is a very bad idea. Although, I do not know why you just don't get individual changing booths that fit one
person. Then lockers. Only takes 30seconds to get changes - maybe two minutes if you are a bit slow.
