Transgender Restroom War Escalates With These States Suing The Fed

Following the unprecidented invasion and disregard of the rights of women and girls, a full fifth of the states in the lower 48 have joined together to sue the federal government under Barack Obama for by-passing legislative bodies and attempting to change American culture via executive fiat as per the transgender restroom directive.

The states, and government enities joining the suit out of Texas are:

  • Alabama
  • Wisconsin
  • West Virginia
  • Tennessee
  • Arizona’s Department of Education
  • Maine Gov. Paul LePage
  • Oklahoma
  • Louisiana
  • Utah
  • Georgia

(Okay, some of them aren’t states, but think of the states that ARE NOT listed or represented in any way.)

As stated above, the lawsuit originated in Texas.

The suit was filed in a Texas federal court in response to the directive handed down to schools earlier this month that said transgender students should be able to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced the lawsuit at a Wednesday news conference, saying the directives represent an attempt by the administration to rewrite the law.

“This represents just the latest example of the current administration’s attempts to accomplish by executive fiat what they couldn’t accomplish through the democratic process in Congress,” Paxton said.

The reasoning was stated very simply in the claim itself:

“Defendants have conspired to turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights,” the lawsuit says.

“Massive social experiment” is an understatement.  The attempts here are to normalize psychiatric conditions, and perversions that endanger the weaker members of society, and the basic fabric of social order itself.  People who are born with one set of sex organs and suddenly decide later that they’d rather have the other set need to see a professional head doctor about that.  Like we ladies have been saying since this entire fiasco began, we really don’t want to see men’s junk in our own most private space whether or not the guys intend on using it with us.  Most of us don’t even want to see each other in the altogether.

Already this directive has resulted in exactly what we females feared: peeping toms posing as transgenders just to get their jollies.  Fortunately, most men are respectful enough to keep their distance even if the prospect is tantalizing to them for whatever reason.  And the editorial from a prominant newspaper in Charlotte telling girls to “get over it” in their shyness of men’s parts was grossly in the wrong from a societal perspective.  For many of us, exposure of sex organs is part of a sacred covenant, and has no relation to racial tensions despite the Attorney General’s assertions.

The attorneys general of these states are exactly correct.  Government overreach in the case of the transgender restroom and locker room directive is completely unacceptable.   We the People do not like social norms dictated to us, especially when they violate deeply held beliefs and the laws of nature.  That is what the Obama Administration is in the midst of doing, and that is why these states are willing to sue the fed to stop them.
