(Before It's News)


The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked Obama’s order establishing transgender guidelines for public schools in America. The new administration cited the legal confusion brought on by the original order, which resulted in hundreds of lawsuits, for the change. Here’s the story from Reuters:

President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday revoked landmark guidance to public schools letting transgender students use the bathrooms of their choice, reversing a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama. …

Obama had instructed public schools last May to let transgender students use the bathrooms matching their chosen gender identity, threatening to withhold funding for schools that did not comply. Transgender people hailed the step as victory for their civil rights.

Trump, a Republican who took office last month, rescinded those guidelines, even though they had been put on hold by a federal judge, arguing that states and public schools should have the authority to make their own decisions without federal interference.

Response: This order needed to be ‘trumped.’ Obama exceeded his authority in trying to force all public schools in America to respond to the transgender issue by ignoring actual biological gender and putting the majority of children at risk.

Local school districts should be allowed to decide for themselves how they will respond to the transgender bathroom and locker issue. Locker rooms in schools are uncomfortable enough without allowing students of the opposite biological genders to change and shower together because of some bureaucrat in Washington.

Common sense should prevail and private accommodations might be the real answer if the progressive activists and PC politics are taken out of the decision and the wishes of the parents are actually accounted for.                  *Top

  • A letter of guidance is neither law or policy. It changes nothing. Each state still decides for themselves. Trump likes to make a show of doing something symbolic to satisfy his base – but actually nothing substantial is happening.
