Government Shouldn’t Impose Transgender Ideology on Nation
Across America, people are now considering how best to accommodate the privacy and safety concerns of transgender persons while also addressing the privacy and safety concerns of others, especially children and students. Left free to work things out, parents, teachers, and local leaders have been able to reach solutions, such as opening new single-occupancy restrooms and changing facilities for transgender students. But just as these conversations are getting underway, the Obama administration is trying to shut them down by imposing a top-down solution on the entire country.
In response, Congress should act to preserve the right of the American people to have these conversations, consider all the relevant concerns, and make policies that will best serve all members of their community.
The administration has no business forcing its transgender beliefs on Americans and their institutions. And it certainly shouldn’t use the bludgeon of state power to coerce compliance – suing those who don’t share its views, stripping them of funding, or driving them out of business. Lawmakers must prevent this abuse of power and block the administration from redefining what it is to be a man or a woman for all Americans.
