Last May, President Obama had his justice and education departments instruct public schools to allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom gender they identified with. Last night (Feb. 22), the Donald Trump administration sent a letter to public schools outlining the change, saying the previous measure had caused confusion.
“Our daughters should never be forced to share private, intimate spaces with male classmates, even if those young men are struggling with these issues, it violates their right to privacy and harms their dignity.” -Vicki Wilson, a member of Students and Parents for Privacy
Trump’s rescinds for those guidelines has currently been put on hold by a federal judge. Trump is arguing that states and public schools should have the authority to make their own decisions without federal interference.
“Our fight over the bathroom directive has always been about former President Obama’s attempt to bypass Congress and rewrite the laws to fit his political agenda for radical social change,” -Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton
Even NYC Mayor took to Twitter to give his thoughts on the current issue…
Socialites, while this decision is still currently on hold, do you think this rule will pass or be rejected like other attempts made by Trump ?
