You may say some of the things I said in my last blog are pure speculations. However, three years ago, the Obama administration sided with a transgender female after Calif., Arcadia Unified School District refused to let her “bunk with [her] buddies” on a seventh grade overnight field trip.
The Obama administration forced a settlement on the school district, which agreed to the teenager’s requests for hotel rooms during “overnight events and extracurricular activities on and off campus, consistent with [her] gender identity.” Obama is now taking this nationwide.
School officials cannot alert the girls’ parents that a biological male will be sleeping in their room because under the guidelines quoted by the Obama administration they can’t even tell the boy’s parents. “School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian,” it says.
The Arcadia settlement – again, dictated by the Obama administration, says the child’s birth sex must be “treated as confidential” by school officials and can’t be disclosed without “express written consent.”
So your daughter may not know she will be spending the night with a boy until she gets to her hotel room. Unthinkable as this would be, it hardly scratches the surface. After all, this guidance doesn’t just apply to high schools.
The adm., makes clear, “In this letter, the term schools refers to recipients of federal financial assistance at all educational levels, including school districts, colleges, and universities.”
To drive the point home, SOEd, John B. King Jr. said in a press release accompanying the letter, “No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus.” How would a college apply Obama’s demand to furnish a transgender student “housing” that conforms to his “gender identity” so that he does not feel “unwelcome” in its dorm rooms?
It seems they make gender dependent on the student’s assertion and nothing else; it requires students to be housed with members of the sex with which they identify. The letter states that the college can’t tell other students about a transgender student’s biology. “Nonconsensual disclosure of…a student’s birth name or sex assigned at birth, could be harmful to or evade the privacy of transgender students,” and Obama warns it could be against the law in the letter.
Some people would argue that not telling a gifted 16 year-old college freshman that her new roommate is a bearded 51 year-old with male pattern baldness and a taste for young ladies violates her privacy.
According to the booklet, even the potential roommate can’t ask about a transgender person’s biology because “asking personal questions about a person’s body ” is a form of harassment.
So, according to this, a man can declare himself a female and be assigned as the year-long roommate of a nubile, possibly under age, co-ed. If the college tells the young lady her roommate is a biological male without his express consent, they could be sued.
And if the young lady objects, she’s guilty of stigmatizing and possibly “harassing” the poor man and should probably be sent to sensitivity training – which she can schedule between her therapy sessions to deal with her sexual assault.
All of this is being forced on the nation without one legislator voting to authorize it, or even a public debate to consult the views of the benighted American people. According to Obama’s spokesman, “these policies are being implemented to assure that schools and universities are as “respectful and safe as they can possibly be.” And you can get on board or get sued. (Safe for who exactly)
The fact that nothing in Obama’s guidance forecloses the possibility that a biological woman will become the unwitting, unwilling roommate of a heterosexual biological male – overnight or possibly much longer – tells us how far the president is will to go to enforce his radical ideology, and how little concern Obama has for anyone who doesn’t share it.
Of course you need to beg the question–“What if these were his two girls being put in a hotel room with a man of questionable sex.” Oh, that rights, they wouldn’t.
