The title of this post is the same as the title of the linked article at Reuters.
Most of the big news sites are running slanted titles, taking a whack at Donald Trump, portraying him as some sort of monster for leaving it up to the states to decide on what school bathroom policies will be for trannies.
It’s like a new Holocaust.
Sample slanted headlines:
CNN: Trump administration withdraws federal protections for transgender students
WaPo: Trump administration rolls back protections for transgender students
U.S. News and World Report: Trump Administration Set to Eliminate Protection for Transgender Students
HuffPo: White House: States Should Get To Decide Whether To Discriminate Against LGBTQ Students
Since Reuters approached the subject with a fair headline, I’ve embedded their story in this post. Kudos to them.
President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday revoked landmark guidance to public schools letting transgender students use the bathroom of their choice, reversing a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama.
Obama had instructed public schools last May to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms matching their chosen gender identity, threatening to withhold funding for schools that did not comply. Transgender people hailed it as victory for their civil rights.
Trump, a Republican who took office last month, rescinded those guidelines, even though they had been put on hold by a federal judge, arguing that states and public schools should have the authority to make their own decisions without federal interference.
The Justice and Education departments will continue to study the legal issues involved, according to the new, superseding guidance that will be sent to public schools across the country.
Reversing the Obama guidelines stands to inflame passions in the latest conflict in America between believers in traditional values and social progressives, and is likely to prompt more of the street protests that followed Trump’s Nov. 8 election.
A couple hundred people gathered in front of the White House to protest the Republican president’s action, waving rainbow flags and chanting: “No hate, no fear, trans students are welcome here.” The rainbow flag is the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, people.
“We all know that Donald Trump is a bully, but his attack on transgender children today is a new low,” said Rachel Tiven, chief executive of Lambda Legal, which advocates for LGBT people.
Conservatives such as Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who spearheaded the lawsuit challenging the Obama guidance, hailed the Trump administration action.
“Our fight over the bathroom directive has always been about former President Obama’s attempt to bypass Congress and rewrite the laws to fit his political agenda for radical social change,” said Paxton, a Republican.
This PDF of Government Dear Colleague Letter on Transgenders Issued by the Obama Administration is now history. Praise God. Women are girls were just made a little safer now that pedos and rapists can’t dress like women and invade their spaces.
Protest all they want, it’s not fair to millions of women and girls to be made uncomfortable by having a penis in the ladies room.
