Federal Bathroom Decree Flushes Down Common Sense
 
Federal Bathroom Decree Flushes Down Common Sense
Written By Monte Larrick   |   05.18.16

Equality and inclusion are in now thanks to the Obama Administration’s directive opening public school restrooms and locker rooms to anyone who chooses to come in. What could possibly go wrong?  Surely teenage boys, dirty old men and voyeurs will not try to take advantage of this “anything goes” policy. No worries about privacy and safety. If problems pop up, well, get over it.

These potential problems are little direct concern to President Obama since his daughters are getting a nice, exclusive private school education where the federal co-ed mandate does not apply. With a taxpayer-paid security detail, Sasha and Malia can visit the bathroom assured of their safety and privacy.

The vast majority of Americans, however, understand that the administration’s “significant guidance” puts students in uncomfortable and perhaps dangerous situations. The good news is states can and are willing to defy the order. Unfortunately, such defiance will result in protracted, expensive litigation.

There’s something else Americans can and should do. Voters can and should elect commonsense leaders who understand that bathrooms should not be co-ed.


Take ACTION:  Click HERE to send a message to your U.S. Representative, urging him or her to rein in the unelected, leftist federal bureaucrats. Demand a stop to the federal takeover of bathrooms, locker rooms, overnight trips, etc.

You can also place a phone call to your federal lawmaker via the United States Capitol switchboard, by calling (202) 224-3121.
