Commentary on The Capital Markets- Category [Education]

The headline says it all.

The Obama administration will send a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their chosen gender identity, as opposed to their birth certificate.

The letter, which is signed by officials at the Justice Department and the Department of Education, will be sent out to the districts on Friday. 

While the letter does not have the force of law, it does warn that schools that do not abide by the administration’s interpretation of civil rights law may face lawsuits or loss of federal aid.

I remind Obama that Title IX mandates that everyone be treated equally when it comes to sex.

The word in Title IX is sex, not "gender identity."  SEX is a physical, immutable characteristic.

Those very few confused individuals who believe they are trapped in the "wrong body" do not have the right to create a discriminatory environment for 99%+ of the rest of the individuals, especially when those others are mandated to be there through government force.

That means, incidentally, students in a school.

My daughter is a legal adult but were she not, were our local schools to implement such a policy and a boy was to change and take showers in the girl's locker room in PE class you can bet your last nickel I would sue the living bejeezus out of every single individual at that school who facilitated and permitted such to happen along with said student's parents in their individual capacities for violations of my daughter's right to reasonable peace and non-discriminatory conduct on the basis of sex.

This crap must stop now.

I do not care how you dress.

I do not care what sex you care to associate with when it comes to interpersonal relationships, including but not limited to intimate relationships.

I very much care when a boy, sporting a penis and testicles, decides to enter a girl's locker room, disrobe and take a shower in front of my under-age and forced-to-be-present daughter.  I will remind those who are not male (men need no such reminder) that erections are involuntary and if you think that a naked teen boy sporting wood in the same locker room with my daughter is going to be tolerated by this man you are certifiably insane.

There are still a few men in this country who consider their duty as a father quite-seriously when it comes to protecting their offspring, especially their daughters, from predatory males.

Again Mr. President: The word in Title IX is sex, not "those who are pretending to be that which they are not."

boy who claims to be "caught in the wrong body" is not a girl and no act by either man or God can make him one -- period.
