Obama Forces Transgender Restrooms on Public Schools


By Hunter Wallace

Less than a year ago, we laughed when the Obama White House unveiled the first “gender inclusive restroom” in the White House. It has taken less than a year for the Obama Justice Department to sue North Carolina over the issue and now to force this issue into all public schools in the United States:

“WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.

It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid. …”

It is bad enough that this issue is being contested with adults in places like Houston and North Carolina. I had considered making an obligatory crack yesterday about the reports that Caitlyn Jenner was “de-transitioning” back into Bruce. That’s something we can joke about while forcing this crackpot transgender nonsense onto children through a “sweeping directive” is nothing short of tyrannical.
