The US Dept of Education in a new policy shift (unsurprisingly) under the Obama administration has ruled that the “rights” of this “girl” were violated when he was barred from a girls’ locker room. The ACLU is representing the child in a lawsuit against the school district.
We have come to a point where Title IX laws are being reinterpreted to accommodate men who play dress-up and want access to female locker rooms:
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 29, 2014—The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the U.S. Department of Education today issued official guidance which makes clear that transgender students are protected from discrimination under Title IX. Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. Specifically, the guidance states that “Title IX’s sex discrimination prohibition extends to claims of discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity and OCR accepts such complaints for investigation.”
The statement is part of broader guidance on sexual violence and the responsibility that schools have to protect all students.
Oddly that girls are being made immediately vulnerable to sexual violence by the presence of genetic males in their locker rooms isn’t a problem. Of course it automatically means that if we are to stretch anti-sex discrimination laws to this degree that the door is now open for heterosexual males to cry discrimination to gain access to the same facilities as well.
After all, they’re being discriminated against on account of gender from going where they want, right?
The myth that a person’s gender isn’t what they are born as but what they subjectively “feel” later in life is of a philosophical – not scientific – basis, and it comes from a very radical fringe movement that the radical Left champions.
This is akin to saying that the Americans with Disabilities Act has been violated because someone with Body Integrity Identity Disorder who although born fully physically functional with all of their limbs “feels like” they are handicapped and “should be” an amputee or paralyzed in a wheelchair. As such, they have a right by federal civil rights laws to be treated like a cripple and rolled around in a wheelchair at will, given priority handicap seating and parking spaces. And if you don’t go along, the feds and the ACLU will circle like carrion to sue your brains out.
Don’t worry, it’s probably already in the works.
This is yet another instance of females being thrown under the bus to accommodate males who desire access to their locker rooms and toilets. It has become a “civil rights movement” thanks to the Obama administration’s kowtowing.
