The directive comes from two top administration officials: Catherine E. Lhamon, the assistant secretary of education for civil rights, and Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. It put state and local officials and higher-education institutions on notice that they risk losing federal education aid if they limit students to areas or teams based on their gender assigned at birth.
"Risk losing federal education aid" equals; Hey, nice school you got there. It sure would be a shame if, you know, something happened to it.
So now all the bathrooms in all the schools everywhere are going to be equal opportunity for boys and girls, if...you...feel like a different gender, I guess. I'm sure this will lead to zero problems at all.
On a practical level, what will happen when some boys decide to just go in the girls locker rooms? Can a teacher tell them to get the hell out? And the bathroom thing is just gross, especially if you're a girl. I mean, the girls have the nice bathrooms. There's usually a lake of pee on the floor of the boys' bathroom, so I see girls as the total losers of this arrangement. The ladies are losing the exclusive use of the nice bathroom.
So much for your "safe space".
And sports teams? Great. Just wait until some guys want to join the girls basketball team. I'm sure that will go over really well. Hey, if you don't make the high school basketball team, slap on a pair of panties and go try out for the girl's teams. Have fun!
This country is losing its ever-lovin' mind. We've got serious problems to address, and this is sort of nonsense that our government has decided to fool around with.
