PETITION: To Obama: Withdraw your extreme transgender school mandate NOW

  • 133

Note: Scroll down to read the actual text of the petition to President Obama.

Background:

On May 13, 2016, the Obama administration sent a letter to all public schools saying that they must allow members of one biological sex who identify as transgender to use the same showers, locker rooms, and restrooms – and “housing accommodations” – as member of the opposite sex, or risk losing federal funding.

The “guidance” specifically forbids schools from requiring students to undertake any medical procedures before being classified as transgender. They do not need to have surgery or take hormone treatments. The instant a parent or guardian tells the school district that his son or daughter now identifies as a member of the opposite sex, the school must comply, with no further conditions.

The Obama administration called this measure, which allows biological males to spend overnight field trips in the same hotel rooms as biological females, a “common-sense” measure designed to “foster safety.”

Its legal experts in the Departments of Justice and Education say this is based on Title IX, but no federal law says anything about “gender identity.” President Obama is simply rewriting the law from the Oval Office and threatening to let public schools go bankrupt if they refuse to put young people at risk.

Tell Obama to withdraw this extreme mandate, which not only violates established science and replaces it with ideology, but also violates the right to privacy of U.S. public school students and puts their safety at risk. Sign the petition.
