VOA: ‘US Public Schools Must Allow Transgender Students’ Bathroom Choice’


The Obama Administration has decided that schools must permit ‘transgender’ people to use whatever restroom they feel they should use as Voice of America (VOA), an official US government news source, reports:

May 13, 2016

Transgender students must be allowed to use the bathrooms that match their chosen gender identity, the Obama administration is going to tell all U.S. public school districts on Friday.

The letter, signed by Justice and Education department leaders, will give guidance to school leaders to ensure that no student is discriminated against.

“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement issued late Thursday that will accompanying the directive being sent to school districts on Friday.

“This guidance gives administrators, teachers, and parents the tools they need to protect transgender students from peer harassment and to identify and address unjust school policies,” Lynch said.

The letter will say that public schools are obligated to treat transgender students in a way that matches their gender identity, even if their education records or identity documents indicate a different sex.

The directive does not have the force of law but contains an implicit threat that schools that do not abide by the administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid. http://www.voanews.com/content/us-public-schools-must-allow-transgender-students-bathroom-choice/3328648.html

The federal government still has no legal right to force this, so it will use financial threats and other means to try to force this absurdity. The Obama Administration does not hold to the US Constitution the way many believe it was intended.

This action is not good.

Notice the following that a medical doctor posted last month:

April 12, 2016

Federal and state governments have opened a new Pandora’s box of dangers to the public, especially for women and girls, with the new push for “gender neutral” public bathrooms and locker rooms, allowing people to choose such facilities based on self-perceived gender, rather than biological sex.

Consequence of such absurd ideas are predictable. This video graphically illustrates many case examples of the dangers to vulnerable women. Just recently, a Seattle man began undressing at a public swimming pool women’s locker room when a group of young girls were changing for a swim team practice. He was not arrested, as a result of Washington’s new law allowing “transgender” men to use women’s restrooms. I use quotes around the term transgender because this man had no outward identifying statements or attire to suggest he thought of himself as a woman.

Bathroom equality or “gender neutral” locker rooms is just the latest absurdity in the move by “progressives” to “progress” the United States right out of common sense and public safety. It continues the liberal expansion of “rights” for a minority few against safety and privacy rights of the majority.

To put the tyranny of the minority in perspective here: There are approximately 700,000 transgender people in the U.S., representing about 0.3 percent of the entire population. That means the safety, privacy and common decency concerns for 99.7 percent of the American population are sacrificed on the altar of political correctness and “feel good” policies for a tiny fraction of the public.

Indecent exposure (males exposing genitals to women in public is the most common occurrence), sexual battery, assault, molestation, sex with minors and rape are all crimes in almost all jurisdictions. It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to see that telling men they can suddenly decide they “feel” like a woman and thereby use women’s bathrooms is a slippery slope to more of all types of these sexual crimes. How does the “feeling” of a gender dysphoric man take priority over the safety of your wife, daughter, girlfriend, mother, sister or friend?

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons released a statement about the importance of separate facilities for men and women to protect public safety: “Attempts by activist groups to force businesses or government facilities to harm, threaten demean, or offend women and girls who do not want to share facilities with biological males are to be resisted and condemned as immoral, irrational, oppressive, and contrary to public order, human rights, public health, and our founding principles.” http://www.wnd.com/2016/04/doc-gender-neutral-bathrooms-are-dangerous/#CgSgUxyLYoS4HJcU.99

The LGBT agenda is NOT good, yet many politicians and ‘celebrities’ in the West are pushing it.

LATER UPDATE: This next item was added to the post hours after the post was originally written:

May 13, 2016

Rush Limbaugh…He cited the work of Johns Hopkins psychiatrist Paul McHugh, who “said that transgenderism is a ‘mental disorder’ that merits treatment, that sex change is ‘biologically impossible,’ and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.”

He noted McHugh is author of six books and “at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles.”

“[McHugh] also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70 percent to 80 percent spontaneously lost those feelings,” Limbaugh said.

“A-ha. We may be on to something here. Dr. McHugh and his boys have studied all this, and young kids, 70 to 80 percent of them, eventually grow out of this confusion. Maybe that’s what they don’t want to happen is for kids to outgrow it.” http://www.wnd.com/2016/05/obama-obsession-allows-men-to-choke-girls-in-bathrooms/#XjsmTesKumv38gc7.99

Various ones in Texas and other states oppose this:

Patrick: Federal education funds ‘dirty money’ due to restroom policy

May 13, 2016

DALLAS -– Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said he would look for ways to reimburse Texas school systems if they lose federal funds over transgender restroom policies.

“I think the people of Texas would join with the legislature to try to find a way around it… to try to find money somewhere,” Patrick told WFAA late Thursday night. “I don’t want their money. This is dirty money from the federal government. It’s really our tax money they’re sending back. We send it up clean to Washington, and he sends it back dirty. He says ‘I’m not going to give you your money, unless you do what I tell you to do.’” …

The Obama administration’s order appears to be a direct response to what happened in Fort Worth on Tuesday, when the local trustees heard public input on its restroom policy for transgender students.

The Fort Worth policy lets transgender students use a single-stall restroom or a restroom when no other students are present, according to the Star-Telegram.

“News of the White House reaffirming the notion that ALL children deserve schools void of discrimination is a validation of school boards that have passed non-discrimination policies and superintendents that created guidelines to match them,” said Miguel Solis, Dallas ISD Boardmember. “Make no mistake — the bold stance the FWISD board and administration recently took has caught the eye of the nation, and we as a society are better because of this.” http://www.khou.com/news/local/texas/lt-gov-patrick-says-texas-will-try-to-reimburse-schools-over-federal-bathroom-policy/189431078

May 13, 2016

Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate, took to Twitter Friday morning to express outrage at President Obama’s all-court press for transgender rights – specifically, to allow males to use females’ restrooms – and saying the directive issued by his Justice Department demanding schools turn a blind eye to biology and sex is a revealing insight into the president’s personality.

“It tells you a lot about a man and his priorities when he spends more time pushing transgender bathrooms …” Huckabee wrote, in one tweet.

And that was seconds later, followed by another: “… than he does on improving high school graduation rates or decreasing Black on Black violence.” …

Sen.  John Cornyn from Texas said “what the president needs to do is focus on his job and his job is not to intervene in state and local affairs under our constitutional scheme” and clarified “this ought to be a choice made by local officials at the local level held accountable by their own voters.”

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told NBC 5 when news of the White House directive broke that “this will be the beginning of the end of the public school system as we know it.” …

Texas schools receive about $10 billion over a two-year period from the federal government. But Patrick said most of that goes toward the free lunch and breakfast program for lower-income families with students.

“So Barack Obama, if schools don’t knuckle down to force girls showering with boys and force 8-year-old girls to have to endure boys coming into their bathroom, he’s taking money from the poorest of the poor. The president of the United States will be ending the free breakfast and free lunch program. That’s what he’s saying.”

Patrick said he’s received a “standing ovation” from “a number of caucuses” for taking on Obama’s transgender push.

“We will not sell out our children to the federal government,” he said. “And the people of Texas and the legislature will find a way to find as much of that money as we can if we are forced to. There is no compromise on this issue. This is a modern-day come-and-take-it issue and the president of the United States, like the superintendent of Fort Worth, is not coming and taking our children.” http://www.wnd.com/2016/05/beginning-of-the-end-of-the-public-school-system/#XO9mbKbtTaUHwFMg.99

‘Transgender students’ do not DESERVE this ‘right.’ Non-transgender students deserve the right to privacy and to not have ones of the opposite sex in their toilets and lockers.

The Bible warns:

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; (Isaiah 5:20)

Notice also:

May 13, 2016

In a sign of what defiant states may face, the Justice Department this week asked a U.S. district court in North Carolina to declare the state in violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and order it to stop enforcing the ban. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-lgbt-idUSKCN0Y403J

Basically, the 1964 Civil Rights Act point in question says one cannot discriminate on the basis of sex. The federal government wants the definition of sex to be changed from biological sex, to whatever sex the individual wants to claim to be.  This was also how NPR (National Public Radio) said the legal issue hinges on when I heard it discussed today.

The transgender agenda is evil. Many, if not all, transgender people ‘cross-dress.’ “Cross-dressing” is condemned as an abomination in the Bible:

5 A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God. (Deuteronomy 22:5)

The Bible clearly condemns cross-dressing. It does not consider it to be harmless like school board member Falk claimed.

The Bible clearly condemns cross-dressing.  The Bible also condemns males acting effeminate:

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.  (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, KJV)

Cross-dressing is not something that children (or adults) should be doing. Nor should having unmarried people of different genders undressing and toileting be forced by a government.

Sadly, in states like Mississippi and North Carolina, who have made some legislative attempts to minimize the threats, they are being subject to various forms of economic boycott:

April 12, 2016

When Bruce Springsteen canceled a concert in Greensboro, N.C., last weekend to protest a state law that many said curbed gay and transgender rights, it was only the latest fallout from the measure. Like similar legislation in Mississippi, it has drawn criticism across the country.

The rock star joined politicians, municipalities and businesses that had withdrawn cultural events, projects and official travel to North Carolina, dealing symbolic and economic blows to the state because of the new law, which bars transgender people from using public bathrooms that do not match the sex on their birth certificates. …

• The 37th annual Mississippi Picnic held in Central Park in New York City was canceled as a result of the state law, organizers said. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/13/us/north-carolina-mississippi-gay-rights-boycott.html

‘Being a bully’

Earlier Monday, North Carolina sued the federal government to keep the law in place.

McCrory said Washington is “being a bully… trying to define gender identity, and there is no clear identification or definition of gender identity.”

McCrory and other supporters of the measure defend it as necessary to protect privacy in public bathrooms and guard against men using women’s restrooms to spy and prey on women.

Lynch said the state invented a problem that does not exist as an excuse to discriminate and harass people.

In addition to possibly losing federal funds, North Carolina could also lose hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue from businesses that are canceling plans to open offices in the state.

Survey results

A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll found that Americans are divided over which public restrooms should be used by transgender people.

The poll, released late last month, showed 44 percent saying people should use them according to their biological sex and 39 percent saying they should be used according to the gender with which they identify.

Age was a major factor in the issue, the survey found.

Americans aged 18 to 29 favored letting transgender people use the restroom of their identity by a 2-to-1 ratio. Among Americans aged 60 or older, the ratio was 2-to-1 in reverse with people saying restroom use should be mandated by the gender on one’s birth certificate. http://www.wnd.com/2016/04/doc-gender-neutral-bathrooms-are-dangerous/#CgSgUxyLYoS4HJcU.99

The Bible warns against not only sexual immorality, but approving it:

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:20-32)

The USA is not benefiting from pornography or the LGBT agenda. This will not end well for the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies (cf. Daniel 11:39) nor the rest of the West (cf. Daniel 11:44-45).

So, what should parents do?

Parents should teach their children the word of God and press the importance of biblical morality.  Notice the following:

4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)

6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)

Consider that God made humans male and female:

27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:27)

Nowhere in the Bible is any human considered to be any sex/gendere other than male and female. And those who act otherwise are warned against (Deuteronomy 22:5; 1 Corinthians 6:10-12; Romans 1:18-32). One is not a different gender than their actual genitalia.

But now the USA has its own, antibiblical ideas. Yet:

33 God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33)

The transgender agenda encourages and exploits confusion. It is NOT good for those who consider themselves transgendered.

Parents should also warn their children of the consequences of the immoral agenda that is being foisted off in the USA and other parts of the world. Sexual immorality will be a factor in bringing about the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord.
