Perhaps we can call this a small victory in a world that seems to have taken total leave of its senses.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States actually made a ruling that erred on the side of decency and common sense.
In a ruling of 5 to 3, with the usual suspects: Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan dissenting, SCOTUS put a hold on the ruling from a lower court which had earlier determined that a Gloucester County, Virginia school must allow a young girl suffering from gender dysphoria to use the boys’ bathroom.
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals – little more than the social justice arm of the Democrat party – had ruled that not allowing students with a diagnosable mental illness, such as gender dysphoria, to fully revel in that illness, and thereby make other students uncomfortable was a bad thing.
They came to this conclusion by twisting a provision of the law called Title IX, which forbids sex discrimination by schools receiving federal funds.
North Carolina, the epicenter of the Bathroom Wars, falls under the jurisdiction of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory strongly condemned the original ruling by the 4th Circuit court, as the state has passed a law restricting bathroom access to correspond with the natural gender, rather than cater to the mental and emotional turmoil of those suffering from the dysphoria.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina’s school board, which had previously chose to act in defiance of state law and would have forced young girls to be exposed to males in their bathrooms, have even halted their plans to move forward and enact the “Gender Unicorn” program in their schools.
The Gender Unicorn, FYI, gives such directives as:
Parental involvement dependent on student’s permission: “Involvement of parents in the plan is determined in working with the student, considering the student’s age and health, wellbeing and safety concerns” (pg. 34).
Students can no longer be referred to as “boys and girls” in classrooms, but “scholars” or “students.”: “Avoid gender specific classroom management techniques” (pg. 46).
Yes. Social justice warriors are just that insane, and they demand access to your children, and will cut you out of the equation, in their efforts to indoctrinate.
We’re going to take this win, for as long as we can hold it.
More parents need to be made aware and they need to push back against this agenda.
More states need to join North Carolina and the other 11 states that are suing the Obama administration for its oppressive overreach into state policy, in order to enact a liberal, anti-family agenda.
In this culture war, apathy is the enemy.
