Your Kind Cannot Pee Here
Good Morning, Scissorheads! Hope your kids pee’ed before they left for school, because Betsy DeVos doesn’t want transkids to pee in school:
“The Education Department has told BuzzFeed News it won’t investigate or take action on any complaints filed by transgender students who are banned from restrooms that match their gender identity, charting new ground in the Trump administration’s year-long broadside against LGBT rights.
“…Finally on Thursday, Liz Hill, a spokesperson for the agency, responded “yes, that’s what the law says” when asked again if the Education Department holds a current position that restroom complaints from transgender students are not covered by a 1972 federal civil rights law called Title IX.
“Asked for further explanation on the department’s position, Hill said Friday, “Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity.”
It’s gonna be a long day for these kids, and no one is less vulnerable than when they need a bio-break. Let’s just say the the bullies will be on both sides of the bathroom doors, and no one needs that, especially when one needs to pee.
Somewhere, Linda Harvey is smiling.
