Lanzenberger: "These results suggest that the gender identity is reflected in the structure of brain networks which form under the modulating influence of sex hormones in the course of the development of the nervous system."

LGBT Rights in California
Assembly Bill (AB) 1266, also known as the “School Success and Opportunity Act,” was introduced by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano on February 22, 2013. It requires that pupils be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs, activities, and use facilities consistent with their gender identity, without respect to the gender listed in a pupil’s records. AB 1266 was approved by Governor Brown on August 12, 2013. (http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/di/eo/faqs.asp)

The Gender Nondiscrimination Act (AB 887) went into effect January 1, 2012 and clarified that gender identity was also included AB 196, which prohibits discrimination in housing and employment based on sex (https://shadowproof.com/2011/10/10/what-the-gender-nondiscrimination-act-ab-887-does-for-californias-trans-people/)
