Barack Obama is a Culture Warrior and for the last seven years he and his ilk have been waging war to destroy traditional American culture. This is just another episode in that sad story.
The Obama administration believes schools must allow students to use whatever restroom fits their “gender identity,” regardless of their biological gender.
The U.S. Department of Education and the Department of Justice made that argument in an amicus brief filed on behalf of Gloucester Courthouse teen Gavin Grimm, who is suing his school for alleged discrimination for not allowing the biologically female transgender student to use the male restroom.
Obama doesn’t believe in the Congress or having to actually pass a law. He, and Democrats in general, much prefer giving a regulatory agency broad ability to write and interpret regulations to get their way. Nowhere is that more evident than in “education.”
The “educators” at the Department of Education have turned colleges and universities into safe havens for feminists who are working diligently to shut American men out of the university. Now they’re working to set a precedent that anybody can use any bathroom and they’re taking the fight to K-12 schools because it’s easier to indoctrinate little kids.
The legally questionable interpretation of the federal Title IX protections on sex discrimination follows several “dear colleague” letters the Justice Department has sent to schools in recent years in an effort to force local students to share restroom, shower, locker and gender specific classroom facilities with students of the opposite sex.
And many schools have taken the government’s advice to heart.
Ummm, parents? Where are you?
At least the judge in this case seems to have some common sense.
U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar rejected Grimm’s lawsuit and claims of discrimination under Title IX, stating that federal law allows schools to establish separate facilities based on sex.
“I have no problem understanding Title IX,” Doumar said. “It’s specific and exact.”
He also said there’s more to the issue than Grimm’s comfort.
“Safety of the individual is a concern,” he said, according to ABC 13. “Why does one person’s rights have to be weighed against another person’s rights? … It really creates a monstrous problem.”
Thank you Judge Doumar.
The confused boy and his enablers have taken the case to the 4th Circuit where the Obama administration has filed their “friend of the court” brief supporting allow men in women’s bathrooms and showers.
One thing is for sure. If the Culture Warriors lose this one they’ll find another confused kid looking for his 15 minutes of fame and do it again.
