Trump Removes Obama's Bathroom Policy

President Trump has rolled back Obama's policy allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice on the federal level, leaving it up to States to decide what to do.  The policy had come under fire from parents and others worried that their children would be victims of abuse, rape or voyeurism.  Any boy can say he is a girl just to get access to the girl's locker room, bathroom and/or showers. This is dangerous indeed!  Attorney General Jeff Sessions agreed with Trump's decision citing that Obama did not make a sufficient legal case to allow such a policy.

Many are mentioning Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 which states: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."  The problem with using this federal law is that the law mentions "sex," not gender.  Activists for gender theory argue that gender and sex are not the same things, therefore, this law is not applicable to those with gender dysphoria.  Hopefully, Trump's policy will remain intact. Many parents are concerned about this issue.
