WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.
It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
First, it is simply unAmerican for the president to issue a decree to state public schools.
Second, there must be an election coming up. After all, we have liberals drumming up a divisive social issue that wasn’t an issue for generations… until today. They won the gay culture war, so now they need something new to create division and call their opponents bigots.
