In the wake of President Obama’s transgender bathroom edict issued in May, a slew of lawsuits have been filed on behalf of transgender students, arguing that their civil rights have been violated after being told they must use the bathroom and locker-room facilities matching their biological sex, as opposed to their “gender identity.”
As reported on Tuesday by The Washington Post, two more transgender students have filed lawsuits against their schools in Maryland and Wisconsin for supposedly violating Title IX.
The two female students, a 14-year-old from Talbot County and 16-year-old Ash Whitaker from Kenosha, who “identify” as male, are demanding access to the boys’ bathrooms and locker-rooms.
Whitaker recently made headlines after her school denied her from running as Prom King, since she is a female. The school later relented and allowed the 16-year-old to run after students protested in the form of a sit-in.
But clearly, this wasn’t enough. It's never enough.
“Both complaints allege that schools’ administrators have stigmatized and treated plaintiffs differently from other students because of their sex — in the first case, by barring the student from using the boys’ locker room, which caused him to be late to PE classes; and in the second case, by instructing him to use single-occupancy or girls restrooms in the school’s office, and making him and other transgender students wear green wristbands to clearly monitor and enforce bathroom usage, resulting in a great deal of psychological distress,” notes Heat Street.
“Both complaints allege that schools’ administrators have stigmatized and treated plaintiffs differently from other students because of their sex ..."
The controversial Obama Administration transgender directive has started an all-out culture war, with conservatives, as usual, on the defensive. Through the directive, Obama mandated that all public schools allow students to use the bathroom and locker-room facilities which correspond to their “gender identity,” and all staff use the requested gender pronouns and names of trans students. In typical lawless-Obama fashion, the mandate was issued with the threat of lawsuits and revoked funding.
Thus far, 21 states have sued the federal government over the massive government overreach.
