Keep the Feds Out of Your Children's Bathrooms
American Thinker ^ | May 23, 2016 | James Lewis

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."

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.

Well that display is downright beauty compared to something I saw at Hartsfield on my arrival there in July, 1995. I'm waiting for luggage at the carousel and a 6'3” man walks by in pink hot pants, a low cut tank top with copious chest hair exposed, wearing a blonde wig and sporting a 3 day beard. Years later I read that Atlanta is a center of activity in the field of transgender surgery. Lots of plastic surgeons and other specialists who help to bend genders are in practice there, and over the years I saw a lot of folks who were partway between some gender and another. All you can say is that it is a profound mental illness, one not likely to end well, despite all the efforts of plastic surgeons and psychiatrists. The good news is that mutations like these appear in a very small sliver of the population. The bad news is that they are the beneficiaries of the same legal and political movement that gays used to shove same sex marriage down our throats.

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.

Madness.

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.
