I am getting so tired of the media’s fixation on the states that have passed the “bathroom” laws. Sure, there’s good reason for that: Discrimination is yet again raising its ugly head into the fabric of American society. Laws, pushed through by prejudicial politicians in the name of their “religious beliefs,” and “protection of our children,” are causing havoc in many sections of our citizenry.
The only thing media can do is report; they cannot out-rightly take sides – not if they want to keep their jobs and avoid lawsuits.
“A majority of Americans in a new poll say they oppose President Obama’s order telling schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom corresponding with their gender identity, rather than biological sex, according to the Washington Times.”
Yesterday morning, I heard there are 11 states that are suing Pres. Obama because of his order telling schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom corresponding with their gender identity, rather than biological sex.
“Americans overwhelmingly believe the federal government should not be involved in regulating school bathroom access, with just 24 percent supporting regulations issued from Washington. Another 25 percent said the matter is best left to state governments, while a plurality, 41 percent, said it’s a matter best left to the local government.”
I believe President Obama is wrong. He should butt-out. The Obama administration should not have became involved in the issue IMHO.
The Federal government can, and I hope will, withhold aid to public schools in the states whose legislatures believe it is right to restrict bathroom use in schools to students who are transgender. These states have gone back to Victorian beliefs.
The politicians in the legislatures are afraid their children and grandchildren will become the victims of predators. This is a stupid reason and just an excuse, which is evident to people with intelligence.
There’s one good thing that I can see coming out of this ridiculous situation: The states in which these idiotic laws were passed, should be hiring monitors to sit by the bathroom entrances and check the students’ birth certificates and make sure they are of the “correct” sex, upon examination. There will be an increase in the jobs reports.
And there will be an increase in requests for certified birth certificates, I suppose. The county and/or state offices will be inundated and they will have to hire more people to take care of the need ASAP. After all, the students will have to use the bathrooms at some point during the day.
Yes, I can see it all now.
