Public school students to use bathrooms AND locker rooms consistent with their gender identity...


....in a letter just sent out by Obama, which threatens loss of funding or lawsuits if Public School Administrators don't comply with his demands. The media doesn't mention locker rooms, but allowing transgender children into locker rooms (of the sex with which they identify) is in the letter. What are your thoughts on Obama's threat to cut off funding to schools, not to mention having boys in girls locker rooms?

    I am also a "States Rights" person. If the states would stop taking fed money for grants, projects, whatever - then we would not be vulnerable to the fed dictations.

    No, he is just throwing up another smoke screen to draw our attention away from the important things he is not dealing with.

    Lolita, We'll see how this plays out, but it's already causing some trouble in schools. You might want to read the short article I supplied to Amie.

    Grace, there you go spouting that common sense stuff again. I truly believe this is just another smoke screen to divert our attention away from important matters.

    Poolman, About 3%. My understanding is that some transgendered people thought it was better to leave well enough alone. For Obama to threaten lawsuits or to pull funding is blackmail. His letter is not a law. Still, he is acting like a King, as usual

    Hillary has been very quiet on this issue, All Establishment Democrats have been pretty mum on Obama's directive, matter of fact.

    I know many lgbt people who have not committed suicide. They have not raised a fuss about going to any bathroom they choose to go to. They don't want to be bullied or made fun of and they shouldn't.
