If my wife, daughter, or daughter-in-law are in a public restroom, and I see what is obviously a man wearing a dress attempt to enter that rest room, I will stop him. It is my right as an American to protect the women in my family. I would do the same for American women whom I do not know. You cannot make what is wrong, a “Constitutional Right”.
And, the overwhelming majority of the American people agree with me.
Just ask Target.
But, I digress.
Yesterday, President Trump undid another dangerous Politically Correct “Royal Edict” which had been put in place by King Barack The First.
Foxnews.com reports that
The Trump administration Wednesday revoked federal guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama that allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity.
A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General’s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not “undergo any formal public process” or explain how the directive was “consistent with the express language of Title IX,” the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities.
“This is an issue best solved at the state and local level,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said. “Schools, communities, and families can find — and in many cases have found — solutions that protect all students.”
“Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “The Department of Justice remains committed to the proper interpretation and enforcement of Title IX and to its protections for all students, including LGBTQ students, from discrimination, bullying, and harassment.”
In a letter to the nation’s schools, the Justice and Education departments said the earlier guidance “has given rise to significant litigation regarding school restrooms and locker rooms.”
The agencies withdrew the guidance to “in order to further and more completely consider the legal issues involved.”
Anti-bullying safeguards would not be affected by the change, according to the letter. “All schools must ensure that all students, including LGBT students, are able to learn and thrive in a safe environment,” it said.
It was not clear what immediate impact the change would have on schools, as a federal judge in Texas put a temporary hold on the Obama guidance soon after it was issued — after 13 states sued.
Even without that hold, the guidance carried no force of law. But transgender rights advocates say it was useful and necessary to protect students from discrimination. Opponents argued it was federal overreach and violated the safety and privacy of other students.
The White House said “returning power to the states paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators.”
The reversal is a setback for transgender rights groups, which had been urging Trump to keep the guidelines in place. Advocates say federal law will still prohibit discrimination against students based on their gender or sexual orientation.
Still, they say lifting the Obama directive puts children in harm’s way.
“Reversing this guidance tells trans kids that it’s OK with the Trump administration and the Department of Education for them to be abused and harassed at school for being trans,” said American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten.
Activists protested the move Wednesday outside the White House. “Respect existence or expect resistance,” read one placard.
Conservatives hailed the change, saying the Obama directives were illegal and violated the rights of fixed-gender students, especially girls who did not feel safe changing clothes or using restrooms next to anatomical males.
“Our daughters should never be forced to share private, intimate spaces with male classmates, even if those young men are struggling with these issues,” said Vicki Wilson, a member of Students and Parents for Privacy. “It violates their right to privacy and harms their dignity.”
White House spokesman Sean Spicer denied media reports that DeVos, who has been criticized for her stance on LGBT issues, had opposed the change but was overruled by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Spicer said any disagreement was merely over wording and timing.
“There is no daylight between anybody,” Spicer said, adding that DeVos was “100 percent” on board with the decision.
Legal experts said the change in position could impact pending court cases involving the federal sex discrimination law, including a case to be heard by the Supreme Court in March involving Gavin Grimm, a transgender teen who was denied bathroom access in Virginia.
The justices could decide not to hear the case and direct lower courts to decide that issue.
In a phone interview with the Associated Press, Grimm said of the Trump action: “It’s not positive. It has the possibility of hurting transgender students and transgender people. We’re going to keep fighting like we have been and keep fighting for the right thing.”
A patchwork of state laws could continue to emerge as a result of the change. Fifteen states have explicit protections for transgender students in their state laws, and many individual school districts in other states have adopted policies that cover such students on the basis of their gender identity, said Sarah Warbelow, legal director of the Human Rights Campaign. Just one state, North Carolina, has enacted a law restricting access to bathrooms in government-owned buildings to the sex that appears on a person’s birth certificate. Lawmakers in more than 10 states are considering similar legislation, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Immediately after the states of North Carolina and Mississippi passed laws effectively barring “transgendered” people from using public restrooms of the opposite “biological sex”, in support of traditional American Morals and Vales, there was an epic attempt by “The Smartest and Most Tolerant People in the Room” to blackmail corporations into protesting the states’ efforts, through public proclamation of their displeasure with Americans in the Heartland standing up for themselves.
The above-mentioned “Royal Edict” by King Obama The First was one of those reprisals.
A reprisal which affirmed to those of us living here in America’s Heartland that Petulant President Pantywaist was a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal.
Exactly, how large is the “Transgendered Population” in the United States of America, anyway?
If you listen to those, including Former President Barack Hussein Obama and his Administration, who fought so fervently for “Transgendered Rights”, you would think that the percentage of our overall population MUST be somewhere in the double digits.
You would be wrong.
Transgendered Americans actually only number somewhere around 700,000, about 0.3 percent of U.S. adults.
I suppose that the “coming out” of Former Olympic Decathlon and Reality TV Star Bruce Jenner as her Transgendered Persona, “Caitlyn”, started the snowball down the hill.
However, as I still believe, Jenner’s “transformation” could possibly be nothing but a publicity stunt, for two reasons.
- Nothing that he/she/it has done to him/her/itself is irreversible. He still has his male sexual organ.
- He/she/it has publicly stated that he/she/it still prefers women.
I wonder if the sales of Wheaties suffered after his/her/its big announcement?
But, I digress…
Back when Obama made his push for “Transgendered Equality”, I found several articles in the Main Stream Media and Liberal websites, such as mediamatters.org, lauding how peaceful, wonderful, and harmless Transgendered People are, and how we “Right-wing Hatemongers” and our stated concern about the safety of our wives, girlfriends, and daughters was overblown.
Then, I found articles detailing the problems that American Prisons have been facing, for over 10 years, in dealing with the Transgendered Criminals, who were incarcerated in their facilities.
And, I found, of course, the reports about perverts exposing themselves in public bathrooms, were common on every city’s Police Blotter.
Why did Obama and the rest of the Far Left push to accommodate the “gender Identity” of .03 % of our population, while simultaneously disrespecting the privacy and advocating a threat to the safety of American women and children?
I propose to you, gentle reader, that this was a part of the continued effort to sublimate Traditional American Values, and even, American Exceptionalism, for the “Good of the State”, in Liberals/Progressives’ ongoing quest to bring America down to the same level as the Socialist Democrat Failures of Europe.
During that time, I had a fellow writer attempt to justify these multiple-stall “Unisex” Public Restrooms as being “normal”, because “Europe has had them for years”.
I, attempting to control my incredulity, answered him, by explaining that America is not Europe. 75% of Americans still proclaim themselves to be Christians, while Europe has abandoned both their Faith and their backbones, and are being invaded by Muslims, who are bringing their Sharia Law, with them.
You often hear of the activists, who are a part of the 24% of Americans, who identify themselves as “Liberals”, referred to as the “Hive-mind”, because most of the time, they present themselves in public and on the internet, including Facebook Political Pages, as being in lockstep with one another, regurgitating “the Party Line”, about each and every Hot Button Political Issue, resembling the brainwashed Proletariat of the old Soviet Union.
The actions of North Carolina and Mississippi, went against the unified thought process of Liberals. American Individual Freedom of Thought and Traditional Morality and Value System of America, have been instilled in the majority of Americans, by generations of American Christianity.
Traditional American Morality and Values are a roadblock to Progressives’ Plans, as regards to the “Good of the State”.
So, when you saw Liberals Musicians like Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams cancel concerts in North Carolina and Mississippi, and Corporations who were expressing their “concerns” of the passage of these laws, it was all a part of a concerted effort to get us “all in line”.
Unfortunately for those who espouse the “singularity of thought” of the Hive-mind, they lost their Seat of Power on November 8, 2016, when Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States of America.
By rightly handing the decision as to whether of not to allow those claiming to be “transgendered” to use the opposite sex’s bathroom back to the states, Trump has taken another arrow out of the quiver of America’s Fascist Progressives.
President Trump understands that…
We are Americans. We cherish our Faith, our Families, and our Freedom of Thought.
We will not be assimilated.
We will Make America Great Again.
Until He Comes,
