Weird how the King never ran on any of this lunacy. We guess this is all part of his transformation of America or something. So now the media can obsess over this and ignore stories that make him look lawless.
The Obama administration will issue a sweeping decree Friday telling every US public school district to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
The letter, signed by officials from the Education and Justice departments, does not have the force of law but contains an implicit threat that schools which do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
This guy’s really the great uniter, huh? At least one governor told him to go pound sand:

Of course anyone who doesn’t fall in line will be called a bigot. How convenient this happens as Obama’s on his way out and allows the Democrats to use this as a wedge issue.
Except for the tyranny and "gender identity" not being a real thing, this sounds like a great plan. https://t.co/rRdc2UKTAj

It's kinda creepy that under Obama the government is hanging out in children's bathrooms and college dorm bedrooms.

If only Title IX had expressly said that schools could keep single sex bathrooms…
Oh wait. It does say that. https://t.co/NLA1oRzXQR

Pfft. Who needs laws when you can willy-nilly issue a “sweeping decree” to your subjects. Let’s face it, Obama doesn’t give a shit about kids playing dress-up, he just wants to pick a fight. And obviously this doesn’t affect his own kids since he never sent his own kids to hellhole public schools in Chicago or DC.
Is this really the “civil rights” issue the left wants to fight for or have they just lost their minds?
It may seem, at times, that the left has lost its mind when it comes to transgenderism – either blindly supporting its agenda or dutifully keeping council. But there have been a handful of leftist critiques over the years of both the reality and politics of transgenderism. These have been mostly from old-school feminists like Germaine Greer and Sheila Jeffreys. In the past month, there have been two – an essay by Lionel Shriver in Prospect and an article in The Antioch Review by the gay writer Daniel Harris. The latter has caused the literary left to fly into a tizzy.
“While I fervently support TGs’ rights to transition,” Harris writes in the piece, “I believe that the whole phenomenon of switching one’s gender is a mass delusion.” It is impossible to change one’s gender, regardless of how many body parts one chops off. “Gender is not ‘assigned,'” he writes, and, therefore, cannot be “reassigned” by superficial plastic surgery. “It is revealed, first by the transducer of an ultrasound machine massaging a besmeared and distended belly and then by the obstetrician as he dangles the wailing infant by its feet… One can no more change one’s gender than one’s species,” pop psychology and postmodern theory be damned.
Read the rest so you can see what the Stalinist left does to one of their own when they dare to dissent.
