The US Department of Education has clarified that they do not nterpret the word “sex” in Title IX as including “gender identity.” They have made it clear that they will not investigate bathroom complaints from students who identity as “transgender.” Thank Secretary of Education DeVos for this clarification.
President Trump’s Department of Education (DOE) and Department of Justice (DOJ) have sent a joint Dear Colleague letter to public schools rescinding the Obama administration’s previous May 13, 2016 Dear Colleague letter demanding that every public school in the nation put safety before sanity and open their bathroom, locker and shower rooms to biological boys who think they are girls and vice versa.
At the beginning of this school year, Selinsgrove Area School District formally announce transgender students will be allowed to use the restroom or locker room that “matches their gender identity” meaning boys who think they are girls can use the girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms and vice versa. At this point, they have not passed an actual transgender policy.
Texas federal Judge Reed O’Connor has again rebuffed the Obama Administration’s efforts to get him to lift his nationwide injunction against the May 13th bathroom edict issued to all schools. The “Dear Colleague” letter issued by the Departments of Justice and Education illegally reinterpreted the word “sex” in Title IX to include ‘gender identity.’
A statewide child advocacy group applauds the decision by Texas federal Judge Reed O’Connor to deny the Obama Administration’s request to issue a partial stay on the nationwide injunction he issued in August. Judge O’Connor noted the Departments of Justice and Education “failed to demonstrate a likelihood of success or irreparable harm sufficient to justify a partial stay of the Court’s preliminary injunction.”
Yesterday U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Texas reiterated the temporary injunction he placed against the Obama administration’s dangerous transgender directive applies nationwide. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) applauds the judge’s clarification as some schools are still confused about the issue. The AFA of PA will continue in its efforts to educate all 500 school districts across Pennsylvania.
Stories of children as young as three or four identifying as the opposite sex have circulated for years, but we see an increased number of such children. As transgender activists and their allies, such as President Obama and his administration, seek to normalize transgenderism, we will see an increased number of impressionable children say they were “born in the wrong body.” But according to the DSM-V, as many as 98 percent of gender confused boys and 88 percent of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty. Doctors prescribing puberty blocking meds to prevent the natural maturation of children are irreversible. Yes, these children are being used in a great social experiment.
Homosexual activists are targeting Christian colleges and universities which have taken advantage of the component of Title IX that allows them to seek a waiver if adhering to government policies goes against their religious teachings. These activists are seeking to intimidate these schools by posting their names on a “Shame List.” Lancaster Bible College is on that list!
At first homosexuals asked to be left alone to live their lives. They continued demanding more and more, until finally they demanded “marriage equality.” Last year the US Supreme Court handed them that demand and still they want more — to force all to accept and celebrate their lifestyle choice. Evidence of this is in the attacks on churches, colleges and organizations which adhere to the Biblical definition of sexuality and marriage. The latest example is the listing of Lancaster Bible College on Campus Pride’s ‘Shame List.’
Late Sunday night US District Judge Reed O’Connor handed down his decision on the US Departments of Education and Justice directive meant to force public schools to open the girls’ bathroom, shower and locker facilities to boys and vice versa. The judge ruled that the language of Title IX, “is not ambiguous . . .
