Looks like that Tar Heel defiance has provoked President Rainbow into despotically cutting to the "We are all sexually confused, now! Or else!" chase:
The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow [gender impersonator]s to use the [wrong bathrooms].
A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by [Inj]ustice and [Re-e]ducation [commissariat] officials — will describe what schools [will] do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.
And the overwhelming majority (99.97%) of the others are.
It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
It's not implicit; it's extortion. Although, given that it's long been proven that there's no causal relationship between public school funding level and students' educational performance, the threat level may be a bit exaggerated.
But it's the thought that counts. And in this case, that thought is that the education of millions upon millions of schoolchildren must be sacrificed to forcing freaks, perverts, and sexual predators into the wrong bathrooms and lockerrooms. It's not quite deploying federal troops to escort them in, as with African-American students in the aftermath of Brown v. Board of Education sixty years ago....
....but it's not very far short of it:
“A school may not require [gender impersonators] to use facilities [consistent with their actual gender] or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so,” according to the letter, a copy of which was provided to the New York Times. [emphasis added]
So no compromise is to be permitted. Unisex "one at a time" facilities - the ultimate in privacy - are not good enough. Gender impersonators are to be forced on everybody else, particularly the young, weak, vulnerable, and defenseless.
A school’s obligation under federal law “to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of sex requires schools to provide [gender impersonators] equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns,” the letter states. [emphasis added]
i.e. If the other 99.97% of you don't like it, f*** you, your mandatory gender reassignment procedures are coming soon enough.
“As is consistently recognized in civil rights cases, the desire to accommodate others’ discomfort cannot justify a policy that singles out and disadvantages a particular class of students.”
Who are "disadvantaged" by the mental illness that has so clouded their self-identity as to make them believe they are a "gender" other than what their genome indicates, not everybody else treating and regarding them according to their factual gender.
As soon as a child’s parent or legal guardian asserts [the wrong] "gender identity" for the student that “differs from previous representations or records,” the letter says, the child is to be treated accordingly — without any requirement for a medical diagnosis or birth certificate to be produced.
So much for due diligence and process. In other words, the 99.97% have no rights and no legal recourse.
It says that schools may — but are not required to — provide other restroom and locker room options to students who seek “additional privacy” for whatever reason.
Why? The whole point of this is to force penises mere inches away from the faces of prepubescent and adolescent girls. It's almost a condescending version of when Cap cleaved Iron Man's arc reactor with his shield instead of beheading him - "Yeah, I could have killed you, but I chose not to; remember that, or next time I will".
Attached to the letter, the Obama administration will include a twenty-five-page document describing “emerging practices” that are in place in many schools around the country. Those included installing privacy curtains or allowing students to change in bathroom stalls.
No, no, no, no. That is, in fact, and by the tone and tenor of this presidential diktat, silly. If privacy was a factor in any of this, the bathrooms and lockerrooms would still be sexually segregated and actual boys would be limited to the boys' facilities and actual girls to the girls' facilities regardless of "gender identity" whatsis. In for a penny, in for a pound. Mandatory sexual confusion, mandatory perversion, mandatory freaky-deaky, mandatory molestation, mandatory rape. The whole nine furry yards. The full monte. The Big Lebowski. "You WILL taste the rainbow, AND LIKE IT!!!!!"
Alternate headline for this post: "Obama Ignites Biggest Boom In Home-Schooling In American History".
North Carolina is already fighting the feds (although by the wrong means). Now Texas is following suit:
Oh, but he is, Governor, he is:
Barack Obama's new executive order [command]ing public schools to allow [gender impersonators] to use the [wrong] bathroom....is already stirring emotions in Statehouses and living rooms.
Reaction from Texas came fast and furious in advance of the directive being disseminated Friday to schools nationwide, the Washington Post reported.
"I got news for Barack Obama," Port Neches-Groves (Texas) Superintendent Rodney Canvass told local TV station 12News. "He ain't my president and he can't tell me what to do. That letter is going straight to the paper shredder."
I hope Superintendent Canvass has his will updated and affairs in order.
"This will be the beginning of the end of the public school system as we know it," Texas Lieutenant-Governor Dan Patrick told Dallas-Fort Worth TV station NBC 5.
Yeah, Lieutenant-Governor Patrick, that's kinda the point. "Fundamental transformation," and all that, remember?
Back in North Carolina, one school district has come up with a great and woefully necessary idea:
High school students in the Rowan-Salisbury Schools can take Mace and pepper spray to school beginning in August. One school board member said the weapon could help ward off an attack in a girl’s bathroom as debate rages over North Carolina’s HB2 law and which bathrooms transgender students should use.
“Depending on how the courts rule on the bathroom issues, it may be a pretty valuable tool to have on the female students if they go to the bathroom, not knowing who may come in,” board member Chuck Hughes said in referencing concerns about HB2, according to the Salisbury Post.
The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education agreed this week to remove language that kept students from taking defensive sprays onto campuses. The district is located about forty miles northeast of Charlotte. [emphases added]
None dare wonder why I call this current age "Bizarro World".
It's also why I've tired of asking why the feminists aren't screaming bloody murder about the Regime putting junior high and high school girls in such daily danger that school districts are having to sanction, and perhaps even start issuing, pepper spray to them for bathroom and lockerroom self-protection. Hell, maybe schools will have to stop being "gun-free zones" if this insanity gets wicked enough. The answer is simple: whatever the particular label, leftwingnut demographics are all part of the same Hydra-esque malignant organism and its evil Agenda. And unlike the Stupid Right, they never lose sight of their endgame, and never fall into moronic civil wars. They're always on the same Mephistophelean page.
This is naked bullying. This is yet another bald abuse of power. This is tyranny.
But that's what sixty-six million American numbnuts twice voted for. In this case, penises in their little girls' faces 180 school days a year.
UPDATE: And the casualties start, er. "flowing" in:
Police in Chicago say a man choked an eight-year-old girl until she passed out in the bathroom of a restaurant.
According to WLS-TV, the girl was with her mother at a Jason’s Deli restaurant in Chicago’s South Loop when she went by herself to use the restroom on May 7th.
Her mom reportedly heard a scream from the bathroom and ran in to find a man carrying her unconscious daughter into a stall.
I guess his "transitional process" wasn't yet completed. Either that, or he'll claim to be "transgender" after the fact, which will probably get him acquitted. After which he'll sue the the little girl's mother for violating his newly bestowed "civil rights".
And no, I'm not kidding. He'll probably sue Jason's Deli as well for not having gender-bender bathrooms.
