The nasty guy rescinded Obama’s guidance on how schools should treat transgender students. Here are several reasons, many supplied by Melissa McEwan of Shakesville, why that executive order is vile.
* The argument that women need protection from trans women is wretched. There are no documented cases of a trans woman assaulting a woman.
* The original Obama guidance and this replacement do not have the force of law. However, its presence – and now absence – sends a signal to schools about what is acceptable in how to treat trans kids.
* Part of the press of this order was about states knowing best. Nope. The schools most inclined to torment trans kids are in the states where these kids are most vulnerable.
* What makes this order especially grotesque is the guy who signed it – a confessed sexual predator, one whose wife testified he sexually assaulted her, who sexualizes his daughters, and who threatened to sue the women who reported he sexually assaulted them.
Women need protection from trans kids?
