The Loudoun Times-Mirror is reporting the Loudoun County Public Schools are "re-evaluating policy on transgender bathroom use" in response to the recent Obama administration edict.
Virginia's constitution says, "mere separation of the sexes shall not be considered discrimination." (Article I, § 11)
Caving to Obama’s unlawful demands would be a huge mistake. The Departments of (In)Justice and Education are once again exceeding their lawful authority by sending a letter to every public school district in America threatening loss of federal aid if local districts do not adopt genderless bathroom policies which would allow self-identified transgendered students to use facilities such as restrooms, showers, and locker rooms of the opposite biological sex.
If the people do not speak up now on an issue like this, there’s no limit to what President Obama’s administration, or future liberal presidents, will be emboldened to do.
Last week, Attorney General Mark Herring responded to my lawsuit by issuing a 19-page, 95-footnote Official Advisory Opinion. The full opinion is posted here, but to spare you the headache, I'll give you the key takeaways:
Quoting the Advisory Opinion: ‘…the question [whether ‘“sex” categorically includes “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” for the purposes of applying federal anti-discrimination statutes’] has not yet been conclusively resolved by the Fourth Circuit or the Supreme Court of Virginia.
The limited precedent available similarly does not permit a definitive answer to Senator Garrett and Delegate LaRock’s question with respect to the scope of “sex” within Virginia’s other anti-discrimination statutes.’
‘Neither the Supreme Court nor the Fourth Circuit has decided whether Title VII’s prohibition on sex-based discrimination per se bars discrimination based on gender identity.’
Thus, federal and state laws allow for separation of the sexes (as traditionally defined) in all public school facilities.
Virginia laws are clear; our local school boards and superintendents are responsible for cultivating a safe, orderly environment conducive to education:
"...the appropriate learning environment designed to promote student achievement", citing Virginia code § 22.1-253.13:1.(a)(ii)
"...standards of student conduct and attendance and enforcement procedures designed to provide that public education be conducted in an atmosphere free of disruption and threat to persons or property and supportive of individual rights;" Virginia code § 22.1-253.13:7.(c)(3)
Fairfax County Schools is facing a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of Virginia over their violation of Virginia law in an attempt to implement the transgender agenda in their schools.
