EXCERPT FROM: AUSTIN AP
AUTHOR: PAUL J. WEBER
A federal judge in Texas has blocked the Obama administration’s order that requires public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their chosen gender identity.”
In a temporary injunction signed Sunday, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled that the federal education law known as Title IX “is not ambiguous” about sex being defined as “the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth.”
The judge said the order would apply nationwide. The ruling, he said, was not about the policy issues of transgender rights but about his conclusion that federal officials simply did not follow rules that required an opportunity for comment before such directives are issued.
CONTINUED COMMENTARY FROM NICK
It is about time that there was some true judicial check imposed onto this White House. This president has from day one of his term tried to rewrite laws from states around the country. President Obama himself has even admitted that he would go around Congress if necessary. It sets a very dangerous precedent allowing the chief executive to legislate with the pen and not through what is constitutionally appropriate.
This outrageous bathroom rule is one of the latest egregious acts committed against state and constitutional rights from the West Wing that undermines the very structure of the nation. The idea that a person can just wake up one day and transform into whatever they may so choose is incomprehensible. When did the idea that the body parts a person is born with determines what sex they are become radical? Even further, when did the idea that a person cannot change races or species just because they are so inclined to choose so? If this shocked you, you haven’t seen the lady that thinks she is a cat.
Allowing people to choose what scientific classification they are is irresponsible and dangerous to the safety of the population as a whole. Thank God for Texas…it seems it may be all we have left.
