Todd Starnes: “Do the rights of boys who identify as girls trump the rights of girls who are born girls?”

Fox News’ Todd Starnes offers some fundamental questions in the Bathroom Wars

Do the rights of boys who identify as girls trump the rights of girls who are born girls?

That question is at the heart of a lawsuit filed by dozens of Illinois parents after the Obama administration’s Department of Education strong-armed their school district into allowing a transgender student the right to use all girls’ locker rooms.

“The girls are mortified,” said Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Jeremy Tedesco, a religious liberty law firm representing some 50 families. “They are in a constant state of fear that their bodies are going to be exposed to a male in these settings. It’s a constant state of stress and anxiety for them.”

Some girls have taken to wearing their gym clothes under their regular clothes. Some wait till the last minute for gym. Some avoid the changing rooms altogether. Many are concerned about using the bathrooms. And many are bullied and called names because they do not want to show their bodies to a biological male who thinks he is a girl.

In 2015 the DOE 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.

In other words, the Obama administration committed a de facto act of extortion.

Why is the federal government allowed to do something that would get anyone or any company in the private sector a nice long jail term? Why is the federal government overriding the civil rights of the majority?

The lawsuit filed May 4th in federal court alleges the DOE’s actions have (among other things) violated the girls’ right of privacy.

“Every day these girls go to school, they experience embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, fear, apprehension, stress, degradation, and loss of dignity because they will have to use the locker room and restroom with a biological male,” the lawsuit states.

Rather than finding some middle ground, such as an area set aside for the fake girl to change, using a single stall bathroom, etc, los federales and the interest groups DEMAND that the gender confused be allowed to use everything that the real boys and girls use.

Fox Business anchor Trish Regan asked a profound question on her show this week regarding the transgender bathroom controversy that has gripped the nation.

“What about the civil rights of women who don’t want men in their bathrooms,” she asked. “Do their rights matter at all?”

I’m afraid the answer to that question is no – the rights of women do not matter.

And any woman or young girl who complains about sharing locker rooms or shower stalls or bathrooms with a biological male — risks being labeled a transphobic bigot.

Liberals say they are the people that care about women’s rights, yet, they throw women under the bus when the situation arises, they back it up over them. They’ve been doing this when it comes to radical Islam, and they’re now doing it when it comes to the gender confused.
