Parents sue feds for forcing school to let transgenders in girls locker room

"Do the rights of boys who identify as girls trump the rights of girls who are born girls?
"hat question is at the heart of a lawsuit filed by dozens of Illinois parents after the Obama administration’s Department of Education strong-armed their school district into allowing a transgender student the right to use all girls’ locker rooms."

. . . "In 2015 the DOE warned the Township High School District 211 in Palatine that unless they gave a biologically male student unfettered access to the girls’ locker rooms – they would revoke $6 million in federal funding.
"In other words, the Obama administration committed a de facto act of extortion.
“ 'Every school district in America has gotten the message,” Tedesco told me.  “The DOE is starting to enforce it through threats of revoking funding. We get calls every week from parents and school administrators asking what can we do? They are caving because they know the federal government is going to come after them.”
"Alliance Defending Freedom alleges the Department of Education has been using Title IX to bully and intimidate school districts across the country by redefining what the term “sex” means.
"Title IX is a federal statute created in 1972 and amended in 2015 that reads:
“No person in the United States shall on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Professor Mike Adams has his personal - and witty - take on this same issue

" . . .the door on the faculty men’s room in my building has a discriminatory sign reading “Faculty and Staff Only.” In fact, a note below the sign even goes so far as to provide directions to the “appropriate” restroom for students. I find this to be discriminatory, non-inclusive, and ultimately injurious to our diversity mission. '
 Mr. Trump is just fine with this.
