Trump Kills Obama-Era Transgender Policy Letting Boys Use Girls Bathrooms

18

President Donald Trump issued new guidance to his Department of Justice and Department of Education that, in effect, rolls back the Barack Obama-era mandates for public schools around the nation to open bathroom doors to both sexes.

Barack Obama pushed policies onto the public school systems to let students self-identify on their gender and use whatever bathroom made them feel most comfortable sparked protests and outrage around the nation.

Obama, while president, had pushed through executive mandates on public schools that required them to allow transgender students to select which bathroom they felt most comfortable using. That meant boys who self-identified as girls could then use girls’ bathrooms and, in some cases, changing spaces, like locker rooms.

Parents around the nation expressed horror with the mandate, which came by way of Obama’s dictates to his Education and Justice Department, and played out on the local levels with threats to strip funding and sue noncomplying schools.

Trump on Wednesday issued new guidelines, while also doubling down on the obvious that discrimination against anyone, including transgenders, is unlawful.

From The Hill:

“Please note that this withdrawal of these guidance documents does not leave students without protections from discrimination, harassment or bullying,” the departments said. “All schools must ensure that all students, including LGBT students, are able to learn and thrive in a safe environment.”

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Wednesday that the Obama administration’s former guidelines lacked a solid foundation in preexisting law, specifically Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on sex.

“Congress, state legislatures and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,” Sessions said.

“The Department of Justice remains committed to the proper interpretation and enforcement of Title IX and its protections for all students, including LGBTQ students, from discrimination, bullying and harassment.”

Betsy DeVos, secretary of Education, also sent out a statement about Trump’s action.

She said:

“‘Schools, communities and families can find – and in many cases have found – solutions that protect all students,’ she said.

“‘I have dedicated my career to advocating for and fighting on behalf of students, and as Secretary of Education, I consider protecting all students, including LGBTQ students, not only a key priority for the Department, but for every school in America.'”

      Agree ! Unless Trump learns to counter these scumbags, they will continue to push ahead.

      Media, RINO’s, Dems including Obama, Hillary were on payroll of saudis/OIC to serve their interest and help advance islamisation of America http://tinyurl.com/gqqwznm

      Left/Liberal Loony Politicians can’t save the country and dumb voters who vote for them deserve what they get like in EU/canada/ california

        I bet that there are no transgender toilets in Saudi Arabia or in most of the world for that matter? I wonder why?? It is only Obamaites who want to ogle our women doing their private things. Ablutions are not a racial or gender thing. People want privacy when they are changing or pooing!! What is wrong with that? Nothing of course unless you seek to sew division which is what Obama wanted to do. Obama was and is a very sick person.

    I have nothing against LGBT people, but Obama went way out of line. You use the bathroom according to what’s below your belt.

  • This whole transgender thing actually has zero to do with transgenders. It’s just another way for Dems to divide this country. They don’t care about equality, rights for transgenders, etc. The more divisive issues the can create, the more we are divided. It’s ALL ABOUT division.

    Obama(Liberals) hates Americans, the Constitution, and free market capitalism. He destroyed our economy with measures like the ACA and immigration amnesty. The “Affordable” Care Act has been nothing short of a disaster. My health insurance bill is up to $450/month. (Compare this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda or my $10/month renters insurance… both private enterprise!)

    I dont understand why Obama wasn’t ever impeached. Thank God TRUMP is now our president :)

      Readers need to Google the John Hopkins Hospital site and read its report on transgenderism. When an LGBTQ-inspired sex education curriculum was imposed on schools in Ontario, Canada, I researched this subject because I was clueless about it. Amazed, I discovered that John Hopkins Hospital has been dealing with transgenderism for 40 or more years. After most of these years dealing with this subject, the hospital came to realized that transgenderism is a “mental disorder that needs sympathetic treatment’ and that an individual’s gender cannot be changed. Others came to the same conclusion. Among those who have had reassignment surgery, suicides are more than 20 times greater than among heterosexuals. I have an 8 year-old granddaughter in my permanent custody and if she finds a man in a washroom I intend going in and giving him a ‘hoof’ where in public it is impolite to scratch. Whichever way, the guy is going to crawl out or be dragged out of there. Predators are going to use stupid laws re ‘transgenderism’.

    Already this morning MSNBC is flooded with boo-hoo and whaa-whaa. for ‘the poor transgender children’.

    Bill Maher condoned sex between 35-year-old woman, 12-year-old boy.

    I am a “slow” driver and feel victimized by all those fast drivers out there.

    Human reason has gone to the dogs because of the abandonment of righteous and moral standards. No wonder the kids are confused – they have no moral guidance – at home or in the classroom.

    I had never even heard of LGBT until someone used the phrase at a party. My brain must have been sharper back then because I managed to figure out what it meant before I made a social blunder :)

    This of course was in an ultra-liberal California neighborhood, full of such, which I was dimly aware of, but didn’t pay much attention to (until I realized I was at a party full of them :)

    Another, earlier time, I made a classic social blunder, asking my female neighbor, who was with another girl, “where is X?” (X being her former boyfriend). Fortunately her shocked look made me realize I better not press that topic. Turns out the “girl” she was with was her new “boyfriend”, who had had a sex change operation. Can’t remember if it was boy to girl or girl to boy though :)

    just like the repeal of ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ resulted in massive increases in gay rapes i nthe military- and the press covered it up- when rapes and
    crimes against women and girls in female bathrooms increases- the media
    will hide that too- Even ‘conservative news stations’ like Fox will hardly even mention it- how many times have we seen Fox mention the massive increases in gay rapes in the military since repeal of DADT? Not ver4y many- if any- in the military gay rapes skyrocketed upon repeal of don’t
    aks don’t tell- thousand more men’s lives are ruined for life because
    our military thought it was more important to protect the delicate
    feelings of homosexuals than it was to protect straight men and women
    from rape – now counties like broward feel it’s more important to
    protect the delicate feelings of mentally sick individuals at the
    expense of more than 99% of the rest of the country-

    These bills do NOT just open women’s bathrooms up to mentally sick
    men who think they are women, but it ALSO now opens up women’s
    bathrooms, showers, dressing rooms to ANY male pervert who now can walk into a woman’s bathroom under full protection of the law–

    In Massachusetts, they passed a law protecting KNOWN SEXUAL FELONS
    from being ‘discriminated against’ by being prevented from using women’s
    bathrooms- how freakin sick is that? And that WILL be coming to states
    around the country as the mental dificiency of liberalism and immorality takes root all across
    the nation –

    Very simple, if you have a Penis you use the Mens’ Room if you have a Vagina you use the Womans’ Room.
    This should be clear, if not ask your Mommys and Daddys.

    Thank you Mr President, for bringing back some Sanity!!

    If businesses are so concerned then build another restroom for transgenders. Most were just towing the politically correct line afraid to lose sales. The problem is that it backfires as many like myself have boycotted those businesses allowing transgenders into any bathroom.

    I wonder how many boys began “self-identifying” as girls in high schools across the USA? Or vice-versa?
