Do you remember the good old days of the presidency? When even the most-ardent leftist executives wanted what was best for America? When FDR rallied our nation and insisted that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself? When Kennedy insisted that young Americans should ask not what their country could do for them, but what they could do for their country?
Now, the president is working vigorously to make sure grown men can pee next to little girls. Somehow, I think we may have taken a wrong turn as a country…
By now, many know that North Carolina is under attack by the radical left for taking a principled stand. This stand is nothing more than a declaration that employers possess the option to mandate that male employees and customers use men’s rooms and female employees and customers use women’s restrooms.
Somehow, to the left, this is a form of discrimination.
To soothe the liberal zealots, an Obama appointee declared on Thursday that the Obama Administration is “aggressively engaged” in the fight to allow boys to invade girls’ rooms and vice-versa.
Department of Education Assistant Secretary for the Office of Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon told a group of homosexual and transgender activists that the administration is “aggressively engaged” in the discussion and intends to protect the fictitious “right” of the mentally ill and perverted to use whatever restrooms they wish to in schools.
Lhamon spoke at a White House sponsored event in Michigan which was co-sponsored by Equality Michigan, a radical group that has worked to allow children to choose their name, gender and bathroom, all without allowing the parents to have a say in the matter.
Such policies are common in totalitarian, far-left regimes. In such despotic nations, parents’ wishes are secondary to the political agenda of the state.
“We are serious. We are aggressively engaged. We will enforce Title IX,” Lhamon told the groups in attendance.
Under this administration, Title IX has been expanded to mandate that boys should be given the right to use girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms (and vice-versa) and that any attempt to hinder such perversion is discrimination. The Obama Administration has also declared that single-user facilities are an unacceptable compromise and that males must be allowed to shower and use the facilities with girls (and vice-versa).
The Obama Administration has indeed been aggressive in their persecution of those who cling to commonsense. Last November, Lhamon’s department was responsible for extorting an Illinois school district who had attempted to keep a boy from using the girls’ locker room. The federal government threatened to pull federal funding from the school district if they did not comply with the federal government’s agenda and the school district promptly reversed course.
What we are left with as a nation is an atrociously oppressive federal government and a shocking dearth of commonsense.
While there are some who genuinely believe that they are males trapped in a female body and vice-versa, what these individuals need is psychiatric help, not a society-wide enabling and validation of their delusions.
Further, in addition to the mentally ill, those who are benefiting greatly from this outrageous brand of “tolerance” are the perverted. For decades, we have warned our children of the dangers of strangers and have created a heightened sense of awareness that borders on the paranoid. We tell little girls that if any adult male is kind to them, they should be eyed suspiciously as a possible pedophile. Simultaneously, however, in the name of warped “tolerance,” we are inviting males to shower with girls and use the facilities with girls and anyone who objects to the legitimization of such perversion is branded a bigot.
As if that wasn’t all bad enough, not we have a presidency that is unconcerned with the dangers of radical Islam, but deeply involved in the fight to let weirdos, sickos and the mentally ill to pee next to girls.
