Paul Gordon- My brief thoughts on what’s really going on with Barack Obama’s latest ‘decree’ ordering public schools to allow transgenders to choose which bathrooms and lockers they use:
The bathroom wars have NOTHING to do with transgenders. The powers behind this artificial crisis creation have one real agenda, to expand the areas of our lives that the state can govern over. Now, the state is seeking to be the definer of gender, and enforce that definition with guns, if need be.
Transgenders may feel they’re being looked after and protected from the state, but what’s being set up really has nothing to do with them whatsoever. And down the road, the power the state is being granted by a compliant society may very well be one day be used against you if it serves their interest.
This move by President Obama is not about inclusion or protection for transgenders, it’s about power, plain and simple. And it’s just another reason why government schools should be shut down. Without the government, who would make our kids useful drones of the state?
President Barack Obama will decree Friday that schools must welcome a tiny number of apparently transgender children by taking single-sex bathrooms, single-sex locker rooms and sexual privacy away from almost 55 million American kids in 100,000 K-12 public schools.
Obama will use the administration’s power over funding and advocacy lawsuits to enforce his demand, which will establish the far-left theory of “gender identity” as government orthodoxy in the nation’s school system.
There’s little that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s GOP caucus in Congress can do to stop this power-grab, because they’ve already approved federal funding until October.
The denial of sexual privacy to almost 55 million kids is being justified as a way to prevent “discrimination” against a tiny number of children who say they feel they are members of the opposite sex. Among actual adults, various estimates say that only 1 in 330 or as few as 1 in 2,400 adults are transgender are transgender.
“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” activist U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement released Thursday.
