A Pen, a Phone, and a Taped-Down Penis: Obama Administration Forces Transgender Bathroom Rules on Entire Nation

The Department of Education will instruct every public school in America to provide "suitable" bathroom and locker room facilities to match transgender students "chosen gender identity."

The Washington Post has details on how the Obama Administration is justifying the new directive:

The directive comes from two top administration officials: Catherine E. Lhamon, the assistant secretary of education for civil rights, and Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. It will put state and local officials and higher-education institutions on notice that they risk losing federal education aid if they limit students to areas or teams based on their gender assigned at birth.

The action comes just days after the Justice Department and the state of North Carolina filed dueling lawsuits over a new law requiring individuals in that state to use bathrooms based on their birth gender.

Citing Title IX, which prohibits sexual discrimination at educational institutions that receive federal funding, the two officials warn that the obligation “to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of sex requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns.

"As is consistently recognized in civil rights cases, the desire to accommodate others' discomfort cannot justify a policy that singles out and disadvantages a particular class of students," reads the letter, which was obtained by The Washington Post.

The new illegal directive (Title IX speaks of gender, but not "gender identity," so Obama is making up the law here) comes with the threat of withdrawing funding from noncomplying schools.

Josh Earnest says "don't look at our threat as a threat." Look at it as a "guidance."
