gender confusion 2New Jersey educators and students may pay a high price if a transgender bill makes it into law.

The Transgender Education Protection Act has passed the New Jersey Senate 26-9, sending the bill to the General Assembly where it is expected to pass.

Citing the bill, Greg Quinlan of the Center for Garden State Families says students must be addressed by their preferred proper name and pronoun that corresponds to their identity.

"Not with the reality of their sex," says Quinlan, "but with their gender identity. So in other words student and faculty must lie to this student about who they are. It effectively mandates lying."

Even if students and faculty don't agree with the policy, they must comply to avoid creating a hostile environment for the transgender student.

The student's I.D. must show the preferred gender.

Quinlan calls the bill "another mandated forced falsehood" that promotes a mental disorder known by the American Psychological Association as gender dysphoria.

"What happens to the student, faculty and staff that refuse to violate their conscience and reality of the students biological sex. What penalties are assessed?" he asks. "How are the rights and the civil liberties of the school's population protected and served to accommodate the lie of another?"

Once passed, the bill will make it to Gov. Chris Christie.
