As regular readers know, DTG doesn’t regularly post political pieces or opinions. Usually, we concern ourselves only with preparedness and training. This is one of those rare occasions where we’re a bit more vocal.
Apparently, the current administration is dictating to the nation’s schools that ‘transgender’ students will have the choice to go into any bathroom or locker room they identify with, upon pain of losing federal funds if the requirement isn’t complied with….hmmm….so that means that ‘school’ is not about education at all; rather, indoctrination into what’s acceptable for an amoral slave state populated by people so ignorant that gender identity is being categorized as an emotionally subjective judgment rather than based upon anatomy and science under an umbrellas of ‘protection from discrimination.’
The mind boggles at the calm acceptance of these ‘edicts’ by the populace. Well, not so much….there are other things more important to deal with….graduation parties, major sporting events, “Dancing With the Stars,” and on and on and on.
Have a nice day – I’m betting you’ll see signs like this in your child’s school very, very soon.
Karl Denninger weighs in with his usual articulately subtle manner, here.
Some key excerpts:
“I remind Obama that Title IX mandates that everyone be treated equally when it comes to sex.
The word in Title IX is sex, not “gender identity.” SEX is a physical, immutable characteristic.
Those very few confused individuals who believe they are trapped in the “wrong body” do not have the right to create a discriminatory environment for 99%+ of the rest of the individuals, especially when those others are mandated to be there through government force.
That means, incidentally, students in a school.”
“I do not care how you dress.
I do not care what sex you care to associate with when it comes to interpersonal relationships, including but not limited to intimate relationships.
I very much care when a boy, sporting a penis and testicles, decides to enter a girl’s locker room, disrobe and take a shower in front of my under-age and forced-to-be-present daughter. I will remind those who are not male (men need no such reminder) that erections are involuntary and if you think that a naked teen boy sporting wood in the same locker room with my daughter is going to be tolerated by this man you are certifiably insane.
There are still a few men in this country who consider their duty as a father quite-seriously when it comes to protecting their offspring, especially their daughters, from predatory males.”
