The Office for Civil Rights in President Barack Obama's Department of Education (DOE) has determined that a Chicago area high school must leave the choice to openly use the girls' locker room up to a 15 year-old student who has male genitalia, but self-identifies as a girl. Full story here.
Under Title IX, the law prohibiting sex-based discrimination, the DOE civil rights division has threatened to cut funding to Township High School District 211 if it doesn't allow the boy to use the girls' locker room.
Here is a statement from a spokesperson at the DOE: "Unfortunately, Township High School District 211 is not following the law because the district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls' locker room." What they aren't mentioning is that the "female" student they are referencing is actually a boy or "transgender" in their terms.
Isn't this twisted? The federal government is micromanaging local school district policies in Chicago to allow this boy to dress with girls.
This is a prime example of Washington bureaucrats imposing their liberal policies on small town schools.
The entire transgender idea is focused on sexual anarchy. Natural man and woman biology is ignored and people are told they can be whatever gender they "desire" on any particular day.
It is time Obama's liberal minions at the DOE get the gist that they ought to follow common sense instead of putting our children at risk.
Contact your Congressman and Senators. Urge them to pass a resolution that Title IX should be interpreted to recognize that transgendered students may be required to accept accommodations that respect the rights of non-transgendered students.
