The government doesn’t know how to define this and the broad brush won’t work. They need to butt out. Transgenders need to be protected but they are .3% of the population and there is no significant problem. The administration just redefined gender, that’s the real issue.
He is now unilaterally telling us what gender and sex are. Is this the president’s role?
North Carolina is pushing back as are politicians in Texas, Arkansas and elsewhere, vowing defiance. Other conservative states will follow suit.
The White House sent out a letter directing schools to allow children to use whatever bathroom or locker room they want if they say it’s their gender identity at the time. This ruling, if it holds, can be extended to dorms and any number of facilities meeting basic needs.
The letter reads: “A school may provide separate facilities on the basis of sex, but must allow transgender students access to such facilities consistent with their gender identity.
“A school may not require transgender students to use facilities inconsistent with their gender identity or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so.”
The notice also makes clear that trangender students must have access to facilities “even in circumstances in which other students, parents or community members raise objections or concerns”.
The Imperial president claimed the right under Title IX though nowhere in the law does it say anything about transgender or gender identity. The repercussions will end up being loss of funds.
“As is consistently recognized in civil rights cases, the desire to accommodate others’ discomfort cannot justify a policy that singles out and disadvantages a particular class of students.”
Obama has set himself up as a dictator and he’s in our bathrooms. As a school administrator, I can tell you that whenever we had problems like this – and they were extremely rare – we were always able to handle it – by ourselves – on our own – and without big government.
It this concept is accepted, it means transvestites, the mentally ill and those will evil intent can also use any toilet, locker room, living facility. Then there are the crazy parents who decide to make their children into transgenders and I have seen that personally. A big government solution with one broad brush is not the way to go. Local control is the way to go. Obama is nationalizing education with these different ‘rules’.
The Imperial president only issued a directive but it is signed by the Department of Education and the Department of Justice.
Loretta Lynch said in a statement:
“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex.” The fact is that none of the cross-dressers are being discriminated against. They’re merely being required to use the facilities consistent with the reality rather of their biology rather than the fantasy of their imagination or mental illness. If they were claiming to be unicorns would we be building stalls and stocking in hay? When did Halloween become mandatory?
“This guidance gives administrators, teachers, and parents the tools they need to protect transgender students from peer harassment and to identify and address unjust school policies.” They’ve identified the unjust policies, all right, and they all oddly have either a Loretta Lynch or Hussein Obama signature attached to them.
However, no one else has any rights to privacy and safety precautions. If you disagree, they will tell you that it is equivalent to segregation in the 1950s though there is no equivalence.
Disgraced former New York Education Secretary John King Jr, the current Secretary of the Department of Education, gladly acted the toady.
As a school administrator, I can safely say that this is an unnecessary use of force by the big government. We don’t need them and they have created unnecessary discipline problems and added more confusion for age groups that go through confusing changes enough.
There will be a lot of genders to accommodate for all kinds of issues in the future.
