Obama Forces Transgender Restrooms on Public Schools

Less than a year ago, we laughed when the Obama White House unveiled the first “gender inclusive restroom” in the White House. It has taken less than a year for the Obama Justice Department to sue North Carolina over the issue and now to force this issue into all public schools in the United States:

“WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.

It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid. …”

It is bad enough that this issue is being contested with adults in places like Houston and North Carolina. I had considered making an obligatory crack yesterday about the reports that Caitlyn Jenner was “de-transitioning” back into Bruce. That’s something we can joke about while forcing this crackpot transgender nonsense onto children through a “sweeping directive” is nothing short of tyrannical.

  1. One stall bathrooms are one thing. I have (myself) used a public ‘woman’s’ restroom on occasion, when ‘you just gotta go,’ but only as a last resort, and ALWAYS with a lock- both for my privacy, and for a woman’s peace of mind. And after trying to convince the jerk in the men’s that he ought to ‘hurry up.’

    But I have only done so, with a one stall/toilet bathroom. NEVER would I EVER consider going into a woman’s restroom in a large store *such as Target is now mandating.*

    Because that IS invasive, and clearly has the rationale as being used as potentially sexually deviant, rather than merely eliminatory- which reminds one, Gents! Lower the seat when you are done! LOL

    • The one commode bathroom makes sense. That’s what everybody has at home. First come, first served. However, not the public ones. Some strait kid is already suing over his “right” to go into the girls restroom at school. It’s easy to see what kinds of mischief various miscreants could put this legislation to. It’s already happened with the above mentioned boy.

    • Single user restrooms are certainly an exception and probably shouldn’t even be labeled as either Men’s or Women’s. I’m sure there is a legal requirement concerning equal access for men and women somewhere that mandates that they be labelled.

      • At the doctor’s office, or in some stores, I’ve seen signs on the door that indicate that the restroom is unisex. But again, it’s the one commode and sink type. Even the court house has some like this. Naturally, one knocks before entering.

  2. President Trump has just issued a sweeping directive to every public school district in the US: All students must be allowed to use the bathrooms that match their racial identity. The directive has been signed by Justice and Education Dept. officials.

    Although the directive doesn’t have the force of law it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not comply could face lawsuits and lose Federal aid.

    • Yes, predictable. Someone may advocate a special LGBT pass but that will be squelched because It requires an examination by a “health care professional” and queers will claim it’s “discriminatory” because non queers aren’t examined, blah, blah, blah.

  3. http://www.wsj.com/articles/paul-mchugh-transgender-surgery-isnt-the-solution-1402615120 70-80% of transgender kids “spontaneously” lose those feelings. In 10 yrs there will be a raft of lawsuits against the schools from kids who felt they were “encouraged” to be transgender, even have surgery.

    In schools, the kids have known each other for years. For 10 years, that was a boy and now suddenly he is in the girls restrooms, locker rooms and showers.

    I note how news stories rarely mention that they want the transgenders in the showers, too, not just the restroom stalls.

    NY Times has a typical NY Times article on it: No effort to let the opposition speak. Very 1984 http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/13/us/politics/obama-administration-to-issue-decree-on-transgender-access-to-school-restrooms.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

  4. I am working from home today and decided to turn on the tv. On MSNBC they were interviewing a Boston couple whose daughter at 2 years old told them she was a boy. Now at 6 years old their daughter is living as boy. This is a clear case of virtue signaling if I’ve ever seen one. If their child told them that she was a cat would they be facilitating her life as a cat right now? Young children are subject to all kinds of strange ideas and erroneous beliefs. It is the responsibility of adults and parents to instruct children in morality and teach them how to be functioning adults who can contribute to and preserve their civilization. Instead of treating these parents as courageous pioneers, they should be charged with child abuse.

  5. The push to permit people to use the lavatory that matches their claimed gender identity pits the safety of women and girls and the comfort of most people against the desire of a fractional minority to feel that their mental illness is more acceptable to society. The problem is that there is no way to determine who is actually suffering from gender identity issues and who is seeking to abuse the policy in order to harass, leer at, or assault members of the opposite gender. Therefore I propose that all transgender people who desire to use the restroom opposite their biological gender be required to register with the state. They can be given a special identification card or required to wear a yellow star so that they can be identified.

  6. The world is fighting Islamic terrorism,starvation and disease but, Democrats are fighting for a mans’right to take a piss in the ladies’room! Total Insanity…….

  7. Any time a minor claims to be not the gender of their birth, it is prima facie evidence for abuse. A just society would string up the abusers and give the kids some therapy.

    • Look how quickly the LGBT advocates have jumped from homosexual marriage, to creating gender confusion in school children by federal mandate.

      • All under the banner of “civil rights”, which effectively ended freedom of association and is the indispensable plank of the White Genocide.

    • I fully agree that parents catering to early age “transgenderism ” is dangerous. But most trans are from families that did not support them and often discouraged such thoughts. I am sure you accept that nature makes mistakes externally with hermaphrodites? Are you convinced that nature does not also make mistakes internally with people’s brains? There is plenty of evidence that their is a difference between male and female brains. Think about it before you rush to accuse me of wanting to undermine sex roles and family life. Only about 1% of are transgender and the big deal about such a small miniority is us being manipulated by a media that loves controversy.

      • If a child is born with dual sex organs or something of this nature the child should be euthanized PERIOD END OF STORY. In fact in ancient times, the child would have been euthanized as there should be no confusion among the people, God is not the author of confusion.

        • Actually, your wrong. Hermaphrodites were well known in the ancient world…As for your Nazi support for euthanisation for hermaphrodites…one can only hope you are merely a attention seeking immature 15 year old.

          • I support euthanization as a cure for 99% of our problems and obviously if a child is born with two genders, he should be euthanized. That is more merciful then allowing them to go through life sexually confused

  8. Absolutely disgusting. I pray the revolution comes soon. I seriously doubt this plan is very well received in the Heartland.

  9. I like it. This is a sign that Left lost any contact with reality. In the election year is better to keep down with the issues like this.. But they don,t and this is a very good sign. End is near. I predict that all ends like in the USSR. Desperate left does something that freaks out whole socitiety up to the top. We had tanks on the streets in 1991 and Coup d’état attempt. And believe that in the US will be very much the same. Left will not just to give up but makes final move to defend “progressive values” Looking forward to see Donald,s speech on the tank turret similar to Yeltsin in 1991.

  10. My understanding is about 1% of people are “transgender”. Yes, we don’t want perverts pretending to be “trans” to use the wrong toilets. But what’s the big deal about those who OFFICIALLY undertake surgery? There is a person in Germany who took hormones at 14 and undertook surgery at 16 to become more female. She looks 100% female and it’s cruel and unkind to insists she uses male toilets.

    If one has officially undergone “sex change” surgery then let use the toilet of their choice. If it’s “unofficial ” no one will notice unless they behave badly. As it’s unofficial, they can be persecured. Meanwhile worry about economic decline, wars, poverty and enviromental destruction.

  11. The LGBTQ activists and their ACLU lawyers are not tolerant liberals who respect other people’s rights. They are pushing a type of political correctness which is a manifestation of a totalitarian, Marxist-influenced ideology. Theodore Dalrymple, an expert on totalitarian societies explains how activists triumph:

    In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed.

    The girls forced to accept a boy in their private space are being targeted for just this kind of humiliation. This is about much more than bathrooms.
    –Dale O’Leary

  12. About 1% of people are transgender. There is a girl in Germany who undertook surgery at 16 and looks a very attrative girl. It’s cruel and unkind to force her to use the men’s washroom. Yes, we don’t want perverts using the wrong washroom under guise of supposedly being trans, but if they have officially transitioned they should be legal to use the washroom they wish. Non official trans who are discreet can take a risk but risk prosecution. That’s a reasonable compromise. …..Now, let’s all start worrying about economic decline, wars, poverty and enviromental destruction.

  13. About 1% of people are transgender. Sure we don’t want dangerous people using the wrong bathroom but has anyone seen the German girl who undertook surgery at 16. She looks a stunning girl and it would be cruel and unkind to make her use the male bathroom.

    In England they beleive in compromise. Why not allow those who have officially undertaken surgery to use the bathroom they identify and let the unofficial take a risk as to whether they are discreet and presentable? If they are not discreet and presentable, then, by all means, prosecute.

    Seems reasonable to me? I think this debate has gone off to debate kids being transgender. I fully accept that accepting transgender at an early age is dangerous. But most trans grew up in normal families who never supported their feelings. We know nature makes mistakes externally with hermaphrodites. Is it clearly impossible that nature does not make mistakes internally with people’s brains? Much evidence says three is a difference between male and female brains.

  14. So Bruce Jenner is having second thoughts… Well after this it’ll never be the same for him again, he humiliated himself and shamed his family. People commit suicide over less. Had we not had this crazy LGBTQRT propaganda or whatever it’s latest acronym is Bruce Jenner would have probably kept his misguided fantasies “in the closet” and at least never have made the public mistake to humiliate himself like this.

    An awful lot of these people regret it because they truly AREN’T “transgendered” or whatever that is supposed to be. Rather they are just run of the mill, deeply unhappy people who have developed the fixation on the idea that “if they were just the other gender everything would be A-OK.” Just an extreme version of the unhappy person who moves to some exotic local thinking a change in scenery will change who they are, only to come to the sad conclusion that it isn’t that simple and the unhappiness is deep inside. Dr. Tony Attwood discusses how this false transgendered status is often a truly sad, extreme misguided attempt by individuals suffering from mild autism to try to cure their autism by thinking “Gee, girls are popular, they never tease me, if only I was a girl I’d be popular and have friends too.” Of course there is no cure and this only makes matters worse for the individual. Such people are in need of a shrink, not a surgeon. Encouraging aberrant, antisocial behavior in young boys in our schools is the height of irresponsibility.

    My only possible motive for this LGBT 24/7 promotion amongst powerful men who should know better is the secret motive to make women in general more promiscuous. Rampant homosexuality means women tend to socialize with their highly promiscuous gay male friends and that culture rubs off on them. Despite all the “American Pie” movies, to the contrary, white women in the upper half of the bell curve tend to be quite victorian in their morals and are not at all easy to bed. The Hollywood moguls know this and hope to “fag hag” them out and by hearing stories from their gay friends about endless cock in the fag bars will loosen them up.

  15. When the left starts yammering about social issues, I presume it’s all a look squirrel diversion, that they’re getting ready to sell out the store to the plutocrats on something, or do something that they don’t want liberal populists to notice. I only wonder what it is.

  16. I am waiting for the first Transvestite Rapist to go into a female restroom and rape little girls, its not an IF its a WHEN. Then after this happens I want these a-holes to stand up and say this was a good idea.
