Poor Caitlyn Jenner is upset about his administration’s reversal of Obama’s directive on transgender bathrooms in public schools. Jenner addressed President Trump in a video posted Thursday night on Twitter.
In the video, Jenner says, “From one Republican to another, this is a disaster.” Jenner is referring to the Trump White House directive ending an executive order issued during Barack Obama’s presidency.

What IS The Transgender Directive?
Transgender Bathroom directive told public schools to allow kids who identify as transgender to use bathrooms and locker rooms of their chosen gender. In other words anyone could use any bathroom of their choice. A boy could use a girl’s bathroom or locker room, and a girl could use a boy’s bathroom or locker room. That directive, however, sprouted all kinds of debate concerning transgender rights.
Parents all over America objected; for obvious reasons, parents of girls were very upset. For example a group of parents and students filed a lawsuit in Texas on October 2016. Their argument was that gender should be unambiguously defined as a person’s sex at birth. In other words, a person’s sex should be defined by reality. The reality of what body you were born with makes you a man or a woman, not what you wish you were.
“School policies should protect the privacy and safety of all students, no matter who they are,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Gary McCaleb said in a statement. “Young students should be not be forced into an intimate setting like a locker room with someone of the opposite sex.”
In a lengthy report and recommendation, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Gilbert wrote this, however, about high school students.
“(They) do not have a constitutional right not to share restrooms or locker rooms with transgender students whose sex assigned at birth is different than theirs.”
In his report, Gilbert noted that recent court rulings are trending toward a more expansive understanding of sex to include gender identity.
Meanwhile, the attorneys for the group suing the district and the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice urged the court to reject the judge’s recommendations. This is just one of many cases where President Obama’s transgender directive brought confusion, and anger to a community. President Trump seeks to right a wrong, however, by writing a new directive reversing the old one. In response, Hollywood seeks to inflict their values on you.
Bruce Jenner is always be Bruce to me, because no matter how much he wishes he were a woman, he was born with male chromosomes, and that will never change. Thank you President Trump for keeping American children safe from the lunacy of the left.
