Washington’s Bathroom Decree

Obama’s newest decree:  all schools must comply or lose Federal funding.

Students can use any bathroom, girls or boys, and presumably any shower facility, according to what they consider their “gender choice.”

Remembering my days in high school, and all the pranks, I am sure there will be thousands of boys now going into the girls shower after gym, claiming their choice is to be girls for that day and therefore they want to shower with the girls. Can’t you just see a dozen guys, stripping down, and running into the girls shower at school?

Have you ever noticed that the Washington ‘agenda’ is destroying all moral values that have made the US a great country? Take away the flag, remove all religious symbols, prohibit the word “God,” remove anything that has given civilizations a moral anchor for thousands of years.

Years ago, there would have been a national cry of outrage. Now people just shrug. The conversion to robots is well on the way.

And what do our “watch dogs”, the US Congress, and the media say? With a few exceptions, there is only silence.

Below, an excerpt from the Washington Examiner: link:

The Obama administration has released its guidance directing public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity.

The Departments of Education and Justice on Friday sent the guidance to all U.S. public schools that receive federal money in order to “ensure that all students, including transgender students, can attend school in an environment free from discrimination based on sex.”

The guidance cites Title X of the Education Amendments of 1972 that prohibits schools receiving federal money from discriminating based on a student’s sex, including a student’s transgender status. The guidance clarifies the law to put schools on notice that both the Education and the Justice Departments are interpreting the law to include a student’s gender identity as the student’s sex.

“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement. “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.”

Under the guidance, schools must treat students consistent with their gender identity after a student or parent notifies the school of a student’s transgender status. The guidance prohibits schools from requiring transgender students to have medical diagnoses, undergo any medical treatment, or produce a birth certificate or other identification document before treating them consistent with their gender identity.

The guidance also spells out what the federal government considers the school’s obligations under the law, including “promptly and effectively” responding to sex-based harassment, treating students consistent with their gender identity even if their school records indicate a different sex, allowing students to participate in sex-segregated activities and access sex-segregated facilities consistent with their gender identity and protect student’s privacy related to their transgender status.
