Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Directive is Even Worse Than You Think

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

If you, like 55% of U.S. parents with school-age children, oppose the POS’s latest stunt, ordering all schools, colleges and universities that receive federal financial assistance to allow so-called “transgenders” — a biological impossibility — to use the rest- or locker-room of their predilection, instead of in accordance to their biological plumbing, it’s even worse than you think.

Obama as kingA rule-of-thumb when it comes to information is: Always go to the primary or original source, instead of rely on second- or third-hand sources.

That’s what Ben Johnson of LifeSiteNews did, and he discovered that there’s much more in the 8-page “Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students” that Obama issued on May 13, 2016, via his mouthpieces — the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights — executive branch bureaucracies that, under him, have become oxymoronic, being neither justice nor education.

Here are the even more noxious directives in the transgender letter, all issued in the name of creating and sustaining “inclusive, supportive, safe, and nondiscriminatory communities for all students”:

(1) School districts must allow biological males and females to spend the night together in the same hotel room on field trips.

(2) Colleges must let men who say they are “transgender” be roommates with one or more women.

(3) School officials cannot even tell those young women or their parents in advance that their new roommate is a man, without risking a federal lawsuit.

(4) The most noxious aspect of the “Dear Colleague Letter” is how the federal government defines “transgender.”

“Transgender” is entirely subjectively defined: a student becomes a member of the opposite sex the moment he or she feels like it. The instant he or she tells school officials about his/her feeling, they must immediately treat him/her as that gender. In the words of the “Dear Colleague Letter”:

“When a student or the student’s parent or guardian, as appropriate, notifies the school administration that the student will assert a gender identity that differs from previous representations or records, the school will begin treating the student consistent with the student’s gender identity.”

In other words, it’s all the student’s say so; school districts are prohibited even from seeking a medical diagnosis. As the letter says:

“Under [the Obama administration’s unilateral rewriting of] Title IX, there is no medical diagnosis or treatment requirement that students must meet as a prerequisite to being treated consistent with their gender identity.”

The student doesn’t have to have surgery or take hormone treatments. He can even continue to look and act as a male, but simply claims he “feels” like a female.

(5) Just as there is no minimum threshold required to qualify as transgender, there is no maximum limit to the number of times a student can change genders, for as CNN reported, “For some people, gender is not just about being male or female. In fact, how one identifies can change every day or even every few hours.” That means that one could be male during homeroom, female during gym class, then male again before he gets on the bus – and the school district is bound to comply every step of the way. (See also “The bi-gender boy who decides every morning what sex he wants to be“)

(6) Schools must provide “transgender” students proper housing:

“A school must allow transgender students to access housing consistent with their gender identity, and may not require transgender students to stay in single-occupancy accommodations or to disclose personal information when not required of other students.”

That means that a student who says he is really a female must be allowed to spend the night in the same room as female students, such as his girlfriend’s hotel room on a field trip, or even the room of a girl who isn’t his girlfriend.

Nor can his sharing of the room be chaperoned because under civil rights law, there can be no disparate treatment. If transgender students are chaperoned but “other” girls aren’t, that’s profiling and could trigger a federal civil rights lawsuitwhich is already a reality.

Three years ago, the Obama administration sided with a transgender female after California’s Arcadia Unified School District refused to let her “bunk with [her] buddies” on a seventh grade overnight field trip. The Obama administration forced a settlement on the school district, which agreed to the teenager’s requests for hotel rooms during “overnight events and extracurricular activities on and off campus, consistent with [her] gender identity.”

Worse still, the Arcadia settlement – dictated by the Obama administration – says the so-called “transgender” student’s birth sex must be “treated as confidential” by school officials and cannot be disclosed without “express written consent.” That means your daughter may not know she will be spending the night with a boy until she gets to her hotel room. Even then, she is forbidden to ask about her roommate’s sex or gender because “asking personal questions about a person’s body” is a form of harassment. And if the college tells the young lady her roommate is a biological male without his express consent, it could be sued.

Obama is now taking Arcadia nationwide.

All of this is being forced on America via the dictate of the Adminstrative State On Steroids — unelected bureaucrats in the executive branch of the federal government — without the authorization of Congress, supposedly the legislative branch of the U.S. government, or the input of the American people.
