Transgender My Foot

If you thought Obama and his left winged zealots had already hit rock bottom, you would be wrong.

It's official, Loudon County received our letter from Obama telling us we have to let boys use the girls bathrooms, locker rooms, showers rooms and participate in girl's sports in all our schools or else.

It's almost impossible for me to believe we are really hearing such stupidity from our government. I assume and expect our school system and state officials will tell Mr. Obama what he can do with his absurd dictate.

If there's a boy who thinks he's a girl or a girl who thinks she's a boy, then there needs to be a parent who sets them down and explains biology to them and if the parent is incapable, then somebody needs to help them all.

There's no such thing as a "transgender" person. In fact that word was only contrived a few years ago and when it was, it was used to describe someone with a serious problem.

Here's a simple fact. Every person is born male or female. It's in the DNA. Females have two distinct sex chromosomes (XX). Males have two distinct sex chromosomes (XY) and there's nothing anyone can do to change that. As Obama likes to say about global warming, it's settled science.

How one feels on any particular day does not determine what sex a person is. If a man has his johnson cut off and boobs installed, he's still just a man with boobs and no johnson. Same in reverse for a woman.

We have so easily bought into the premise that if someone feels a certain way then that makes it OK. That's just stupid. So I feel like a million dollars. That doesn't make me a millionaire.

It appears that most states are already pushing back on this insane push from the Feds. We can't get rid of Obama and his crazy bunch soon enough. Of course Hillary Clinton says she agrees with Obama on this and plans to continue the Obama agenda if elected.

Subject: U.S. Departments of Education and Justice Release Joint Guidance to Help Schools Ensure the Civil Rights of Transgender Students

Reply-To: ed.gov@public.govdelivery.com

Dear Colleagues,

The U.S. Departments of Education and Justice released joint guidance today to help provide educators the information they need to ensure that all students, including transgender students, can attend school in an environment free from discrimination based on sex.

Recently, questions have arisen from school districts, colleges and universities, and others about transgender students and how to best ensure these students, and non-transgender students, can all enjoy a safe and discrimination-free environment.

Under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, schools receiving federal money may not discriminate based on a studentís sex, including a studentís transgender status. The guidance makes clear that both federal agencies treat a studentís gender identity as the studentís sex for purposes of enforcing Title IX.

The guidance explains that when students or their parents, as appropriate, notify a school that a student is transgender, the school must treat the student consistent with the studentís gender identity. A school may not require transgender students to have a medical diagnosis, undergo any medical treatment, or produce a birth certificate or other identification document before treating them consistent with their gender identity.

The guidance also explains schoolsí obligations to:

  • Respond promptly and effectively to sex-based harassment of all students, including harassment based on a studentís actual or perceived gender identity, transgender status, or gender transition;
  • Treat students consistent with their gender identity even if their school records or identification documents indicate a different sex;
  • Allow students to participate in sex-segregated activities and access sex-segregated facilities consistent with their gender identity; and
  • Protect studentsí privacy related to their transgender status under Title IX and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

At the same time, the guidance makes clear that schools can provide additional privacy options to any student for any reason. The guidance does not require any student to use shared bathrooms or changing spaces, when, for example, there are other appropriate options available; and schools can also take steps to increase privacy within shared facilities. 

In addition to the Departmentsí joint Title IX guidance, the Department of Educationís Office of Elementary and Secondary Education also released Examples of Policies and Emerging Practices for Supporting Transgender Students, a compilation of policies and practices that schools across the country are already using to support transgender students. The document shares some common questions on topics such as school records, privacy, and terminology, and then explains how some state and school district policies have answered these questions, which may be useful for other states and school districts that are considering these issues. In this document, the Education Department does not endorse any particular policy, but offers examples from actual policies to help educators develop policies and practices for their own schools.

Many parents, schools, and districts have raised questions about this area of civil rights law. Together, these documents will help navigate what may be a new terrain for some. Government resources for transgender and gender-nonconforming students are available here

Thank you,

U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights
