Appeals Court Favors Transgender Student in Virginia Restroom Case

The New York Times

By RICHARD FAUSSETAPRIL 19, 2016

Weeks after a new North Carolina law put transgender bathroom access at the heart of the nation’s culture wars, a federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., ruled on Tuesday in favor of a transgender student who was born female and wishes to use the boys’ restroom at his rural Virginia high school.

Advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people note that the ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit applies to North Carolina, where the controversial law approved last month limits transgender people to bathrooms in government buildings, including public schools, that correspond with the gender listed on their birth certificates.

As a result of the ruling, those advocates say, that portion of the North Carolina law that applies to public schools now clearly violates Title IX — the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in schools.

[...]

Well, here we go - federal reversal of NC HB2 was inevitable, and IMHO this is the first step in that reversal.

What do you folks think? Does Title IX and the 14th Amendment make NC HB2 a violation of federal law as well as un-Constitutional, respectively?

It has always been the hidden intent of the Constitution to free humanity's inermost desire to all pee together.

I thought it was to make all Pointers, Setters...
