Obama Threatens To Pull All Federal Aid If Any School Doesn't Adopt Mixed Gender Locker Rooms & Restrooms
“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,”
reads the letter, which was obtained by The Washington Post.
It appears Obama’s Education Department is using this decision as a rationale to mandate every school in America to accommodate any child whose gender identity might not sync with their actual gender.
Whether the administration chooses to mandate a bathroom/locker room free-for-all by utilizing Title IX, which was written in 1972, or by utilizing the 1964 Civil Rights Act (as they did earlier this week in their lawsuit against the state of North Carolina) they’ll be hard pressed to find any contemporaneous notes by congressmen and senators who crafted those historic laws which reveal that they were trying to protect against not just sexual discrimination, but transgender discrimination as well.
Regardless of how this gets worked out in the courts, every parent in America will wake up this morning having to deal with an issue they probably never thought they’d have to face several years ago. Parents now have to decide how they will deal with the reality that their child will not enjoy a basic level of privacy when they use a restroom or locker room when they go to school. Will this bring about a rise in private school attendance? Will it inspire more parents to home school their children? Will states flirt with the idea of refusing federal education funds?
Either way, if anyone wondered what President Obama meant when he promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” now they know.
