-Obama’s Dept. of Education: Students Must be Allowed to Choose Their Own Gender

by Dr. D ~ December 12th, 2014

U.S. Department of Education


The Obama administration has now made transgender choice mandatory in all public schools across America. By order of the Department of Education on December 1, all schools receiving federal funds must allow students to choose for themselves whether they are a boy or a girl rather than the gender they were born with. Here’s the story from the Christian Post:

In single-sex classes, which are common for sex education, students must be allowed to go to the class of the gender they consider themselves to be rather than their actual gender, the U.S. Department of Education directed schools that receive federal funds in a Dec. 1 memo.

The memo, from the department’s Office for Civil Rights, provides guidance for K-12 schools for when they are allowed to have same-sex classes or extracurricular activities and remain in compliance with Title IX, a 1972 law to protect against gender discrimination in education programs that get federal aid. …

"All students, including transgender students and students who do not conform to sex stereotypes," it states, "are protected from sex-based discrimination under Title IX. Under Title IX, a recipient generally must treat transgender students consistent with their gender identity in all aspects of the planning, implementation, enrollment, operation, and evaluation of single-sex classes."

Response: The schools in California have been struggling to implement a similar state order that allows boys to decide for themselves to suit up in the girls locker rooms and try out for the girl’s teams if they want and visa versa. There are already a number of lawsuits from concerned parents. Now the Obama administration is going to take this chaos into every state and city across America wherever federal funds may go. Even private schools which take federal money may be affected.

This is another case where the Obama progressive agenda is being allowed to run unchecked by executive order without legislation or Congressional oversight. At least the mess in California was passed by the state legislature and signed by the governor.

Here’s my reaction at the time to the California law– also a poignant response to the new federal order:

So let me get this straight. Students in …public schools are now able to arbitrarily choose for themselves from day to day what gender they want to be and their parents don’t even have to be aware of it? Then on that self-proclaimed basis could have access to bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex and even join any sports team regardless of actual physical gender?

The new law is designed to help the 1 tenth of one percent of students that may be ‘transgender’ or have gender identity issues. However 99.9% of the student could be affected by the new law since there are no provisions or guidelines to determine whether a student is truly ‘transgender’ or just faking it to gain greater access to the opposite sex. … The possibilities for obvious abuse are legion. I would not want to be a teacher or a school administrator under these conditions and lack of provisions. 

Now if a boy would like to take a shower with his girlfriend there is nothing but common sense standing in the way? Also, if a high school boy doesn’t make the boy’s basketball team he could always try out for the girl’s team and have the added possibility of sharing the locker room and showers with his new team mates of the opposite sex?

Is America going completely insane? I thought so when this president was re-elected and now some of the results are proving my initial reactions.

Watch this new policy destroy girls competitive sports. Title IX contributed to strengthening girls sports all across America since 1972. Now this same law is being re-interpreted to support transgender rights. Mark my words, chaos will soon follow concerning eligibility in girls programs.             *Top

    As I read this sweeping manifesto, Dr. D, there is nothing in it that precludes it applying to dormitories or other sleeping arrangements. Thus, if your school is taking a bunch of 7th graders on an overnight field trip, and one 7th grader wants to be assigned sleeping quarters with kids of the opposite gender, the school must accommodate him/her. And how does the school respond if it thinks that this particular boy has no “gender identity issues” but is simply exploiting an opportunity in order to spy on/behave inappropriately around the girls?

    The question then becomes how does the school deal with parental response? Your 12 year old daughter is on that field trip. She is scheduled to spend the night in a hotel room with 3 other 7th grade girls. But, you have now been notified (or, better yet, you are NOT notified) that one of the roommates is going to be a 12 year old boy who alleges that he identifies as female. Does the field trip get cancelled? Does the school arbitrarily select and order certain girls to be his roommate?

    Imagine you and the other parents of girls in this room react and object. What does the school do? They are supposed to accommodate the 12 year old boy’s stated preferences, but how many of the parents of girls on this field trip are going to be willing to let their daughter be the roommate?

    Another problem is with girl’s sports. Title IX was intended, in part, to insure that there were adequate opportunities for girls to participate in team sports in school. Imagine that boys who want to play basketball, but fail to make the boys’ team, start trying out for the girls’ team. The average boy is taller than his female counterpart (at least beyond about age 13) and has greater upper body muscular strength. It is not a level playing field. Your daughter fails to make the girls’ basketball team – but several boys are now starters on the girls’ basketball team. Once this happens, coaches at other schools actually start recruiting boys for their girls’ basketball teams, to match the boys on their competitors’ teams (these boys are not really ‘transgendered’ but are “ringers”). Soon, the typical junior high girls basketball team in your conference has 3,4 or 5 boys starting. What happens to your daughter’s opportunities to play? And has this imperial decree not actually repealed parts of Title IX?

    Thanks Brian,
    You have captured and voiced some of my greatest fears.
    Beyond that, can you imagine all of the lawsuits against the schools brought by irate parents if any of your examples become a reality. Potentially millions will be lost to education through legal fees and court appearances. All in support of the newest radical PC progressive idea and cause with no recourse in sight until a new president and administration?
