    DANBURY - Aimee Toms was washing her hands in the women’s bathroom at Walmart in Danbury Friday when a stranger approached her and said, “You’re disgusting!” and “You don’t belong here!” After momentary confusion, she realized that the woman next to her thought - because of her pixie-style haircut and baseball cap - that she was transgender. Besides being a pretty normal choice of style for women, Toms’ has a short haircut because she recently donated hair - for the third time - to a program that makes wigs for child cancer patients. “I’ve had people call me all sorts...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan finds himself in the middle of yet another Republican civil war as the battle over LGBT rights has come to Congress, threatening to divide an already fractured GOP. It is a fight the speaker does not want to have — especially in a competitive election year in which presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy is already tearing the party apart.

    Not so fast, bro. It’s not quite as dramatic as a state telling Obama to take his federal funds and shove them where the sun doesn’t shine, and it’s potentially rife with unintended consequences: What if the Scalia-less Supreme Court rules that the president can issue arbitrary conditions for the receipt of federal funds at his own personal whim? Roger Goodell’s lawyers might have some suggestions for Obama on this one. But at least they’re fighting. Texas, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Maine, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia have sued the administration in federal court. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott appears...

    On Wednesday night, 43 Republican members of Congress joined the Democrats to vote for President Barack Obama’s transgender agenda. Whereas last week Congress voted to reject this proposal—known as the Maloney Amendment—last night they voted to ratify Obama’s 2014 executive order barring federal contractors from what it describes as “discrimination” on the basis of “sexual orientation and gender identity” in their private employment policies. And, of course, “discrimination” on the basis of “gender identity” can be something as simple as having a bathroom policy based on biological sex, not gender identity, as we learned last week from Obama’s transgender directives....

Calling the Obama administration directive “outside the bounds of the constitution,” the McKinney Republican said that the state was taking action to protect a school district near the Oklahoma border that had passed a policy earlier this week requiring students to use bathrooms according to the gender cited on their birth certificates.

    North Carolina’s Republican leaders are seeking to combine separate lawsuits over a state law limiting protections for the LGBT community — moves that could help steer the cases to a judge who twice ruled against the federal government in recent years. Three federal judges are currently assigned to five dueling lawsuits over the law, which requires transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates in many public buildings. The law also excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from statewide antidiscrimination protections. Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore asked on Monday to combine...

    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....

It started long before the Obama administration, of course, with the Democratic Party having become a united-front organization of the “oppressed,” from radical feminists to advocates of racial revenge against whites, to special rights for homosexuals, and now, special rights for dozens of sexual preferences and gender classifications, all under the banner of “LGBT” (lesbians, gays,...

Over the weekend, a Clinton spokesperson said Hillary is supportive of Obama’s demands, but provided only a vaguely written endorsement that reduces the risk of sparking public opposition during her 2016 presidential campaign. “Hillary Clinton applauds the Obama administration for taking actions this week to stand up for the rights of LGBT people–and particularly...

    To achieve its political ends, the left doesn't just assault the Constitution through the appointment of liberal activist judges; there are a variety of other leftist abuses, such as politicizing the departments of Justice and Education. In its mission statement, the Justice Department states that one of its aims is "to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans." That goal underscores cherished principles of American jurisprudence and the Constitution, including the preamble's commitment to "establish Justice," the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law and the rule of law itself.

    With a few strokes of a keyboard, President Obama is seeking to change the daily experience of thousands upon thousands of schoolchildren by ordering all U.S. schools to allow transgender students access to the restroom of their choice. He sent a letter stating his progressive decree to the nation’s schools Friday morning — threatening schools not just with legislation but with a loss of funding if they fail to comply. The New York Times had an early copy of the letter, from which it excerpted the following, which essentially bans the one-stall bathroom option: “A school may not require transgender...

    The Obama administration's directive Friday that every public school provide transgender access -- or face the loss of federal funds -- drew swift and strong condemnation from conservatives, with one public official blasting it as presidential "blackmail." The administration’s directive -- citing Title IX in telling schools to give transgender students access to all activities and facilities consistent with their gender identity -- effectively touched off a national debate that could well extend into the next president's term and reverberate through the courts. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, speaking to reporters Friday, said his state "will not yield to blackmail...

The new guidance comes as the Justice Department and North Carolina battle in federal court over a state law passed in March that prohibits people from using public restrooms not corresponding to their biological sex. Officials from the Education and Justice departments told schools that while the new guidance does not carry legal weight, they are obligated not to discriminate against students, including based on their gender identity....

Would that be a rational policy? Would it be just? The U.S. Justice Department is now arguing in federal court that such a policy wrongfully discriminates against people whose "gender identity" does not "align" with their biological sex. The department filed suit on Monday against the State of North Carolina. At issue is the law North Carolina enacted this year that states:...

    Americans broadly oppose laws that would require transgender people to use facilities that correspond with their gender at birth rather than their gender identity, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll, and three-quarters favor laws guaranteeing equal protection for transgender individuals. Overall, 57% say they oppose laws requiring transgender individuals to use facilities that do not match their gender identity, 38% support such laws. Strong opposition (39%) outweighs strong support for these laws (25%). There's a partisan gap on the question, with Democrats and independents more apt to oppose them than Republicans. But Republicans aren't broadly in favor of them either....

If the state doesn’t give up Americans’ right to decide who gets to use single-sex bathrooms and school locker rooms by Monday, then the federal government could start blocking the routine federal spending and tax transfers to the state — unless federal courts block the administration’s threat of sex-related harassment. “The Department of Justice has...

    The Department of Justice told North Carolina's governor on Wednesday that a new state law limiting restroom access for transgender people violates the U.S. Civil Rights Act. In a letter to Republican Governor Pat McCrory that was seen by Reuters, the Justice Department said the state was "engaging in a pattern or practice of discrimination against transgender state employees," and it had until Monday to address the issue. McCrory's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Consumer backlash is growing against Target's stance on what type of bathrooms its transgender customers and employees can use. Two weeks ago, the Minneapolis-based discounter issued a statement that said customers and employees can use the restroom or fitting room that "corresponds to their gender identity." The move made Target the first major retailer to take such a prominent position on the issue, and won praise from supporters of transgender rights. But Target's position has also sparked criticism on social media. One online petition started by a group called The American Family Association, a conservative Christian...

    Hillary Clinton is conveniently Not talking about letting sexual predators in the Ladies rooms to prey on young girls and women. Even though she is running her campaign on "Women's issues" and being the first "Woman President", notice how she stays silent. Wonder why that is?

    Target allows men to use the same restrooms as ten-year-old girls and has made it clear that it would prefer law-abiding citizens to enter its stores unarmed. On April 20, Breitbart News reported that Target released a statement in which they equated opening girls’ restrooms to men as part of “equality.” The statement said, “Inclusivity is a core belief at Target. It’s something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.”

    There is simply no way to read this other than that they stand by what was told to Andy Park in the video. A man, dressed as a man, who does not claim to be a woman, and does not claim to identify as a woman, may use the restroom designated for women if he feels more comfortable there.

    Welcome to life in totalitarian America, where even going to the bathroom and identifying the sex of an adult have now become intensely political acts. Totalitarianism is about the politicization of everything, and once people’s careers can be destroyed by the New Bathroom Order if they publicly object to the once-bizarre idea of men in the ladies’ room–we’re there. Ask the now-unemployed Curt Schilling. Totalitarianism is about using force to gain political goals. You can’t get more coercive than forcing the vast majority of people to endorse the utterly bizarre just to accommodate the allegedly hurt feelings of an almost...
