Feds’ push for trans rights in US schools is simply insane

Sheer lunacy: That’s the only way to describe the Obama administration’s decision to enforce the full “trans rights” agenda on the nation — in public accommodations, and in school bathrooms and locker rooms.

Yes, polite society in progressive precincts has embraced the idea that those with non-standard “gender identities” deserve the same protections as racial and other minorities.

But that idea surely never entered the mind of any lawmaker who voted for (or against!) the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or any of the other laws Team Obama is citing as authority for its actions.

And while Americans are good with “live and let live,” most will be outraged at Uncle Sam ordering their local school to let biological boys change in the girls’ high-school locker room.

Yet the Justice and Education departments on Friday sent out a letter directing schools to let every student use the “facilities” that fits his/her “identity.” In fact, Education officials had already pushed many schools to make the locker-room concession.

It’s madness: As a practical matter, administrators should figure out the best accommodation for their particular school, in their particular town. The right answer in Scarsdale won’t necessarily be the best solution for Newark.

Transgender folks are a minuscule minority; the question’s not even relevant to most of the country. It’s insane to put this issue atop the agenda when countless schools in this nation don’t even provide a decent education.

Look: The vast majority of Americans still see two sexes, male and female, with the differences obvious and biological. Most will humor the rare person who feels otherwise — and won’t be bullied to go any further.

Maybe the progressives will manage to re-educate us all into seeing things their way, but they’ve got a long, long way to go. Trying to force their views on everyone now is just begging for populist fury.

The more so, since the feds are starting with schools, when countless parents are already outraged at other ham-handed diktats from America’s elites.

Pull your social-engineering crap with your own d–n kids, and leave ours alone.

Open Bathrooms and California’s War on Kids: A Daddy’s Perspective.

Open Bathrooms and California’s War on Kids: A Daddy’s Perspective

 

This is not the sort of post I normally write, but I have a daughter. So, here goes. California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law yesterday establishing an open bathroom policy in the state’s public schools. This policy is the first in the nation to allow students to choose which bathroom they will use based on their gender identity. So, little boys who consider themselves transgender are now allowed to use the little girls’ room at school. I won’t get into the details of the law; you can read that at CNN. I’ve got more important things to say.
First, as a daddy, there is no way – let me say that again – no way! my little girl will ever – ever! – attend a school in which little boys, particularly of the adolescent variety, are given entry to the girls bathroom. No way. No how. No sir. Any father who allows his daughter to darken the doors of such a place is colluding with the powers that have abandoned their responsibility to protect children in favor of putting children at obvious risk.
Second, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that there will soon be a significant escalation in the number of pubescent boys who are suddenly experiencing confusion about their gender identity and discovering, after all, that they themselves are transgender students. “Yes, yes,” Johnny will say, “I’m beginning to feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body. May I have the hall pass? I need to use the restroom.” We are fools, if we think boys who have no question about their gender identity will not abuse this law in order to take advantage of girls.
Third, given what I’ve just said, we must conclude that California has it out for its children. This law will not only create further confusion for students, it will also create situations in which kids will get hurt. And it comes from the halls of the state legislature. Make no mistake. California has codified it’s war on children.
Finally, I’m not really surprised by this, and you shouldn’t be either. You can tell a lot about a society by the way it treats its kids, and in this society we’ve been sacrificing children to the false gods of convenience and consequence-free sex for decades. We now have laws on the books that will make it easier and easier for children to inflict exceedingly significant (sexual) damage on one another. Truly, we have received the penalty for our error. We have been given over.
