Common Sense vs. Political Correctness: Government extortion and the changing of the definition of sex

Now I’m not a doctor nor do I have a degree in Gender Identity Studies from my liberal community college but I can tell you that a man is a man and a woman is a woman, regardless of what they may think or feel that they are.

Common sense would tell you that a man in a woman’s bathroom, fitting room or locker room is wrong.

But according to the Department of Justice and our Attorney General, Loretta Lynch (who might just be the re-incarnation of Eric Holder) it is not wrong for a man to enter a women’s bathroom.

The Department of Justice says that they are protecting the rights of the transgender community and Attorney General Loretta Lynch also says that North Carolina HB2 bill amounts to “state sponsored discrimination” and it has also caused transgender people to suffer “emotional harm, mental anguish, distress, humiliation and indignity.”

What about the rights and protection of little girls and women? What about the emotional harm, mental anguish, distress, humiliation and indignity that women and little girls will have to face knowing that at any moment they can be using a public facility and there could be a man waiting to do them harm or expose himself to them?

In a column for TheFederalist.org Kaley Triller Haver is speaking out against transgender bathrooms and locker rooms. In part of her article she wrote “Don’t they know that one out of every four little girls will be sexually abused during childhood, and that’s without giving predators free access to them while they shower?” She also wrote, “….There are countless deviant mean in this world who will pretend to be transgender as a means of gaining access to the people they want to exploit, namely women and children.” It’s not all that bad. Haver had a solution to the problem. Offer single occupancy restrooms and showers, but that might also be looked at as discriminatory too.

 THE BATTLE

In the most recent battle between common sense and political correctness we have the battle between North Carolina and the Department of Justice as well as the Department of Education and the Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Illinois. In North Carolina the state is trying to avoid men from entering public facilities that are meant for women and in Palatine the Township High School District 211 is looking to stop biological males from entering the girl’s locker rooms.

Also announced Friday as reported by the New York Times “The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity” and “It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.”

Not only is the Obama administration going try to force this upon the nation but he will extort, blackmail and threaten each state in the process?

 THE LAWSUIT

Part of the lawsuit that the Department of Justice filed against the state of North Carolina accuses the state of being in violation of Title IX of the Education Acts Amendment of 1972 that bans gender discrimination in education, and the Violence against Women Reauthorization Act that outlaw discrimination on the basis of sex.

Here is an excerpt of part of the lawsuit filed by the Department of justice. (Paragraphs 30-32)

“Individuals are typically assigned a sex on their birth certificate solely on the basis of the appearance of the external genitalia at birth. Additional aspects of sex (for example, chromosomal makeup) typically are not assessed and considered at the time of birth, except in cases of infants born with ambiguous genitalia. An individual’s ‘sex’ consists of multiple factors, which may not always be in alignment. Among those factors are hormones, external genitalia, internal reproductive organs, chromosomes, and gender identity, which is an individual’s internal sense of being male or female … External genitalia are, therefore, but one component of sex and not always determinative of a person’s sex.”

THE FEELINGS OF CHANGE

I want to focus on the part that says “individual’s internal sense of being male or female….External genitalia are, therefore, but one component of sex and not always determinative of a person’s sex.”

So what I’m supposed to understand by that is that this is all about how you think or feel not what you really are?

I’m a white male Latino, but if I want to identify myself as a Chinese woman, its ok? Simply because that is how I feel and that is how I want to identify myself as?

In a recent Facebook post Todd Starnes had a question for the Attorney General:

“Shouldn’t a 16-year-old who identifies as a 21-year-old be allowed to consume alcohol?

Shouldn’t a 40-year-old who identifies as a 70-year-old receive Social Security benefits and the senior citizen discount at the movie theatre?

I mean if we are going to identify people simply because of their “feelings” – doesn’t anything go?”

Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, wrote on Facebook that “A man shouldn’t be able to enter the women’s restroom or dressing room because he says he ‘feels like a woman today’. That’s ridiculous. The fact is, gender identity isn’t something we choose or feel. We are the sex God created us to be – male or female. How a person feels doesn’t change the facts.”

THE EXTORTION

Now not only is the Department of Justice wanting North Carolina to allow men to enter woman’s facilities, the DOJ is also threatening to end funding to the state which would include funding towards education. According to The Guardian “The state risks losing as much as $4.8bn in government funding by refusing to repeal the law.”

Another case in which a government agency threatened to deny funding towards education is the case between the Department of Education and the Township High School District 211. In an article with Fox News Todd Starnes stated that “the Department of Education warned the Township High School district 211 in Palatine that unless they gave a biologically male student unfettered access to the girls’ locker rooms – they would revoke $6 million in federal funding.”

And now the Obama Administration is threatening to pull funding from every public school in the nation that if they do not comply with the new decree that would allow kids to use the bathrooms in which they identify themselves with. This is blackmail and extortion coming from the highest level of government. Every state needs to stand up to this totalitarian administration and not risk the lives of women and children.

PRAYER

Ladies and gentleman I leave you with this link to a prayer by Billy Graham for our nation. It is sad to see what is happening to this once great nation but I will not lose faith and I will not lose hope. God Bless.
