Again we see a massive coercion effort by the Obama Administration.

This times it's a letter to all public school districts in the country *"warning"* them to allow transgender students to select the bathroom of their choice.

Perhaps the social issue has merit, but the fact that Obama is demanding this (as a warning) and connecting non compliance to federal funding is extremely dictatorial and authoritarian beyond belief.

This is a conspiracy based on government control because they (the Obama Administration) are threatening lawsuits as well as financial punishment.

Very alarming.

U.S. Gives Sweeping Guidance to Schools on Transgender Students


The Obama administration sent a letter Friday to every public school district in America warning them they should allow transgender students to use bathrooms consistent with their chosen gender identity, or risk losing federal funding.

The sweeping guidance does not have the force of law but warns that schools that don't comply could face lawsuits or lose federal aid. The move ups the ante in the debate over bathroom laws, which are the subject of a highly charged lawsuit between North Carolina and the Department of Justice.

At the heart of Friday's letter, which was first reported by the New York Times, is guidelines on Title IX — the 1972 law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education.

There is no legal avenue for the teeth of enforcement. Funding to schools is current law passed by congress and signed by the president. That cannot be unwound without an act of congress.

Regardless, the president does not have the equivalent of a line item veto nor can trigger points be instituted in a budget. The money is either issued and is distributed or it is withheld and not in the budget.

And so we'll witness the explosion of the illicit photography industry on state campuses across the country.



This is child abuse.

Is there are is there not a law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in federally funded education? Based on that, couldn't non-adherence to this law result in lawsuits or removal of federal funding?

Isn't Obama just pointing out facts that currently exist? How is that authoritarian?

You are no longer allowed to have an opinion, the government now dictates what you have to accept
As little as 10 years ago this would have been beyond belief, now its accepted as the standard.
The government owns the moral standard, dictates what is acceptable and not

Really, males males toilets, females females toilets, is that wrong?

There sure is!

Notice the law addresses "sex" not "sexual identity"?

When it comes to law, words and even punctuation makes a difference.

Forcing one's daughter to share a bathroom with a pervert is pretty authoritarian.

Again. It's child abuse. Any parent in her right mind would've abandoned the school system long ago.

And yes, they are using force. Threatening financial destruction for failure to comply qualifies as such, in my book.

Time to stop this "gender identity" madness. Gender coincides with biological sex. Some people can be deformed and need surgery, all others are mental illness. These people need professional help, not "acceptance". People wonder why suicide rates amongst these people is so high. The silent majority needs to reject this nonsense.

Qualified Doctors and Educators are warning Governments how harmful this nonsense is. But facts do not fit the ideological line.

In the UK Children as young as SIX are asked to question their "gender identity" in certain schools. When i was 6 I wanted to be an astronaut or a digger driver, i didn't care about my "gender identity". The teachers responsible for this should be arrested and tried for intentional child abuse.

What will be next? Will the "Otherkin" be demanding respect of their "differences" because the identify as animals and not humans?

Will schizophrenia stopped being classed as a mental disorder because a number of progressive types view them as "headfriends"?

Madness. This is the fall of the West. All part of the greater plan to divide the people on the basis of non-issues imo.

I have to wonder how many more years before the end of the public education anyway. With homeschooling, charter schools and online schooling becoming more popular every year, I'm very curious. And I don't know that it would be a bad thing, really, the way things are going.

Prohibiting males from going into the female bathroom and vice versa is not sexual discrimination since they are provided a bathroom based on their natural sex that they were born with.

If anything other students could file lawsuits against the Govt. Probably under sexual harassment laws.

That's exactly what people said when they outlawed "whites only" bathrooms.

Which toilet should this person go into?



Or this person?

My question is simple.

How were transgendered people going to the bathroom last week, last month, last year?

This is a phony issue, one I can't believe my more conservative friends are endorsing. This is a made-up issue promulgated by conservatives and the White House to distract us from actual issues.

Let people pee!

Obama is using illegal coercion.

If the laws are so solid, why just enforce the laws in court like any normal government agency would do?

The "gender" as defined in the old law(s) may not fit the current assumed definition(s).

Again, this is coercive 100% and illegal.

Remember when the Supreme Court found areas of the ACA to be coercive and therefore illegal?

The social issues may have merit, but not the coercion.

Then if a court decides the law does not apply, so be it. Still no problem with the letter.

If Congress opts to continue funding, so be it. Still no problem with the letter.

The letter is just stating possible consequences, because a court may, in fact, rule that the law DOES apply, and Congress may, in fact, opt to discontinue federal funding.

There is a very big problem with the "Letter".

Watch for lawsuits challenging the "Letter" very soon.

What their natural birth sex declares them as
Stop the silly games
Pictures prove nothing, neither does a governments dictating

You don't, the government does not dictate a persons sex, their body does, not their minds

Surely that in itself is a form of discrimination to those who use the 'bathroom'

defined by the gender they were born to.

If one *form of gender* is allowed to choose ... then surely ALL should have the

same ability to choose

I'm confident you can quote the exact language in the affected law(s).

Educate us please.

The Obama Administration is defining "gender identity" as part of "sex" in the non discrimination based on sex.

However, this will ultimately be up to courts to decide- if identity falls under sex in definition.
