The TransAdvocate has documented the dirty tricks anti-trans groups are playing in California.

  • We documented how the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) falsely claimed that a trans girl had been harassing cis girls in the restroom so they could use it to scare Californians into rejecting AB 1266, the law protecting trans children.
  • We documented how the PJI lied about there being a police investigation targeting the trans girl.
  • We interviewed and fact checked PJI, proving that they were dishonest time and again.
  • We documented the real-life toll PJI’s lies had taken.
  • We documented the dishonest way PJI modulates their hate.
  • We documented PJI-backed groups lying to the press, claiming that yet another trans kid was harassing cis girls in the restroom.
  • We documented a PJI-backed signature gatherer committing election fraud, by falsely claiming that trans protections for children means that gay men can use both the men’s and women’s restroom.
  • We documented another PJI-backed signature gatherer committing election fraud, by falsely claiming that trans protections for children led to rape and molestation.
  • We documented the anti-trans propaganda.
  • We documented what known hate groups were saying about trans kids.

Here again, we caught anti-trans signature gatherers lying to the public in order to scare them into supporting discrimination against trans kids:

"Co-ed Restrooms" "Protect Your Children"
“Co-ed Restrooms” “Protect Your Children”

An advocate in California snapped this photo while coming out of a Stater Brothers store. The signs falsely asserts that trans protections = co-ed restrooms. This is a violation of California Election Code § 18600 as it is a fraudulent representation of the facts. Note that they’re also scaring people into giving them money.

To be clear: AB 1266 never asserts that cis boys get to hang out in the girl’s restroom. That’s a lie. Let’s also be clear that after a decade of having California-style policy in place all over the country – even in places like Houston, Dallas, El Paso, San Antonio Texas, the best these anti-trans groups can do is lie in order to pretend that these policies are problematic.
