The battle over the rights of transgender and cisgender people continues to escalate in one of the most influential arenas: our nations schools.
The Chicago Tribune reported this month that after a four-year battle, a school board in Palatine, Illinois, has granted transgender students unrestricted access to locker rooms based on gender identity.
Just a few days later, CBS News Minnesota reported a mother had sued her local school district, claiming that it discriminated against her child for being transgender.
These are just two of the most recent stories showing just how prevalent the transgender debate in schools has become.
What Happened in Illinois
The school board of Township High School District 211 passed its new policy by a 5-2 vote. The policy requires students, teachers, and administrators to treat students consistent with their gender identity, meaning students will have full access to restrooms and locker rooms of the gender they identify with.
This goes further than the old policy, which also granted transgender students access to the locker rooms but required that the student retreat to a private area within the room to change.
The school board made the announcement in front of about 250 parents and students. News reports say half the crowd cheered at the decision while the other half booed.
In a speech at the meeting, Superintendent Dan Cates explained the boards logic by appealing to other school districts that have implemented the same policies without disruption and in a manner that protects the interests of all students.
Some in the crowd reportedly yelled false while the superintendent was speaking. Another student voiced her concern with the new policy, saying, through tears:

The normal people should revolt....
Just like Dred Scott, this will be looked on as a mistake made by the courts and will be rectified. Providing there is enough pushback from the public. It may have to come in the form of lamp post decoration before they understand the seriousness of the issue.
The normal people are sheep.
The wolves drive the heard.
Yes, I’m a dummy.
Catering to the delusional has no end.
How far do we go?
‘...but required that the student retreat to a private area within the room to change.’
why not just dress in the correct room, then...? the entire point of this exercise is to grab attention...
If your “gender identity” does not match your biological sex, you are suffering from DELUSION.
an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.
We didn’t have showers in grade school for PE. We didn’t change clothes either.
For high school drop PE. Remove all shower facilities. Have individual changing rooms/bathroom stalls. If two people enter one changing/bathroom stall an alarm goes off. All sports activities after school. Kids go home to remove sports gear and shower.
“These students keep shifting the goalposts with their self-focused demands.”
It’s not going to stop. They won’t be satisfied until the courts mandate that every normal person has to have sex with a tranny to prove they are not “phobic”.
The normal people are sheep.
The wolves drive the herd.
Yup. Everyone is afraid of saying what they really think.
Noting that the states have never amended the Constitution to expressly protect politically correct LGBT "rights, pro-LGBT activist judges scandalously legislating such rights from the bench, please consider the following.
If the oppressed parents of District 211 were making sure that the district was teaching students their constitutionally enumerated protections, then students could give their troubled parents the following constitutional chill pills.
If District 211 is ignoring the voice of the local legal majority citizen voters on this issue, then the district is failing to maintain a republican form of government that the states guaranteed with the constitutions Article IV, Section 4 imo, the feds having the express constitutional authority to make sure that voices of the voters are heard.
"Article IV, Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government [emphasis added], and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
But even if the parents being oppressed by the district were a local minority, theyve still got their 14th Amendment protections.
From the 14th Amendment:
"Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
H O W E V E R
Were still stuck with a worthless, corrupt Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration that will predictably cheer the LGBT bullying going on in District 211, lawmakers probably munching popcorn while watching events unfold on CNN.
The remedy for constitutionally failed federal and state governments
Patriots in the whole nation need to come to the rescue of the parents in District 211 by doing the following.
Patriots need to elect a new patriot Congress in the 2020 elections that will not only promise to fully support PDJTs already excellent work on MAGA, now KAG, but will also do this.
New patriot lawmakers also need to promise to exercise their constitutionally enumerated powers to make penal laws that discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated protections.
Remember in November!
MAGA! Now KAG! (Keep America Great!)
Corrections, insights welcome.
Insanity is overturning your entire civilization to satisfy the desires of a tiny, mentally-ill minority.
Cisgender = normal, the new “N” word.
They hate us.

How far do we go?
Communism with Big Brother (monitoring system is just about complete). With social scoring, re-education camps, hard labor camps, many disappearances. Not a new thing at all.
