President Trump is snipping Obama’s transgender bathroom guidelines; thereby cutting federal involvement in school rest room decisions.
The Trump administration plans to revoke federal guidelines put out under former President Barack Obama allowing public school students to use restrooms and other facilities that correspond with their gender identity.
The source confirmed the Trump administration will issue new guidance, saying the Trump White House believes this is an issue better left to the states.
The decision, not yet announced, would be a reversal of an Obama-era directive issued in May requiring public schools to grant bathroom access even if the student’s chosen gender identity isn’t the same as what’s in the student’s record.
Someone made this point on a local talk show this morning, and I thought it was brilliant. If these people really believe they identify as the opposite sex, why use the term transgender at all? Why not just tell people you’re a man or a woman?
Personally, I identify as a meat popsicle. Accept me for who I am!
