Feds: Oregon Boys and Girls Must Shower Together at School
Published : August 20, 2018
President Donald Trump already rescinded Obama's illegal so-called “transgender” mandates. Still, relying on Obama's bizarre “rationale” holding that Congress in 1972 supposedly meant to mandate boys in girls' bathrooms in statutes against sex discrimination, the judge applied the reasoning to schools in Oregon. It was not clear what supposed constitutional authority the feds believe would authorize the intrusion to begin with.
The ruling almost sounded like a parody. For children to “see or be seen by someone of the opposite biological sex while either are undressing or performing bodily functions in a restroom, shower, or locker room does not give rise to a constitutional violation,” claimed radical U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez.
The case involved a girl claiming to be confused about her gender and wanting to use male facilities in Oregon's Dallas School District. Unsurprisingly, the Oregon Department of “Education” sided with forcing members of the opposite sex on each other. Opposing the lunacy were the groups Parents for Privacy, Parents Rights in Education, and a number of individual students and parents.
Non-confused students said they felt “embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, intimidation, fear, apprehension and stress” at the prospect of showering or using the bathroom with members of the opposite sex. But for the Obama judge, that meant nothing, saying they have no “fundamental privacy right to not share school restrooms, lockers, and showers with transgender students.” (Apparently one only has a “right to privacy” in America today if the purpose is to slaughter unborn children.)
The judge also used part of his opinion to attack President Trump for rescinding Obama's outlandish decrees, suggesting Trump had some sort of duty to replace Obama's decrees with his own. Of course, the Constitution does not give the feds any power whatsoever over education, and it certainly does not authorize the president to unilaterally decree what the bathroom policies of schools should be.
For parents and children opposed to the idea of being forced to shower with members of the opposite sex, the judge gave them a option — leave. In short, according to the judge, if they do not like it, they should remove their children from the government's schools. Of course, taxes to fund the indoctrination must continue to be paid.
“It is within Parent Plaintiffs’ right to remove their children from Dallas High School if they disapprove of transgender student access to facilities,” the judge wrote. “Once the parents have chosen to send their children to school … their liberty interest in their children’s education is severely diminished.”
The insanity taking hold of government schools in America is still accelerating, even under the Trump administration. Clearly, biology, morality, common sense, and truth are no longer welcome in the classroom. Under such circumstances, sensible parents must take action to protect America's future.
