Posted on 05/23/2016 10:40:01 AM PDT by Kaslin
Obama has asserted, by pure fiat, on no legal, medical, scientific, or commonsense grounds whatsoever, that he can dictate how children use school bathrooms around the country. This is an obnoxious and dangerous abuse of federal power, and it looks suspicious. What is Obama's motivation?
Adults may not remember the deep shame and embarrassment children often feel, as early as age four, around toilet training. Sibling rivalry can get pretty intense. Being called a "poopy kid" by your brother or sister might look pretty harmless to parents, but young children can experience it as a sink-through-the-floor feeling of overwhelming shame. Getting bowel control is a learning process, and losing bowel control feels like a world-shaking catastrophe to a young child.
Bathrooms are built for privacy because they are surrounded by fear and shame, even after a hundred years of "progressive" theories. Childhood shame around potty training occurs long before the even bigger ups and downs of puberty, another enormously sensitive time "down there."
Sexuality is an enormous psychic force, not some parlor game. Sexual politics has reshaped generations of young people in Western schools, and from there sexual politics has swept the culture. You can see the results with your own eyes.
Liberals have a long, long history of trivializing the emotional tempests of childhood and adolescence via the myth of "progressive parenting."

Never mind the feds, keep the queers and pedos out!
When will America get that outside its constitutional limited authority, the feds are totalitarian, perverse, homicidal maniacs and the states have every constitutional and legal right to have NONE of it?
Soon I hope.
Democrats accuse us of waging a war against women but we aren’t the ones letting perverts into their restrooms. If I were a lady, I would be very uncomfortable with this policy. It ain’t gonna be just caitlyn jenner types in there with you.
$h!tface has used the full coercive power of the federal government to shoot down anyone who disagrees with the radical LGBT crowd.
The kids will take care of this.
Obama, get the Government out of girls showers and bathrooms, you pervert.
It apparently ain’t for the chillun but for what they want to DO to the chillun. And it will be ugly indeed.
I applaud keeping the focus on the immediate situation, rather than bringing up shiny squirrels of 30 year old molesters.
Not QUITE... yet.
Legislating morality is a messy business. The idea that men and women should use the toilet corresponding to their biology? Make sense to me, but how to enforce such a rule? Gender-specific ID cards? A weinie-checking doorman at every bathroom? No, thanks.
I think this whole flap is just to generate litigation - pervs suing for discrimination, straights suing for privacy, and lawyers buying luxury cars on both sides.
Communal showers/toilets may become a thing of the past. It'll be expensive but one-stall toilets may be the only remedy.
Individual showers/changing rooms? Way too expensive. Guess you go home in sweaty clothes after the game.
The problem with types like Bruce Jenner is that he himself says he’s still attracted to women.
