He most likely already knows its unconstitutional.He is thinking long term. What he is counting on is the fact it will take a awhile before the supreme court strikes it down. By the time that happens schools will already be complying out fear of losing funds. His executive order being struck down will be too late because and the idiotic loonytoons left will scream discrimination if schools even think about going back to only allowing actual girls use the girls room and actual boys use the boys room and the useful tards in the media will paint schools as being discriminatory for saying only actual boys can use the boys room and actual girls can use the girls room.

What? It's authorized under the constitutional federal power of education and the implied power of the POTUS to make, change or ignore federal law. ;)

They are already accusing states who refuse to comply to this insanity of discrimination. And anyone who does not accept at face value that any man can declare himself a woman or vice versa is labeled an ignorant bigot. I'm sure it won't be long until the usual suspects at DP come to this thread to do exactly that.

Obama withholding funds from public schools is similar to shutting down the government. Except it only impacts students' learning.

The anti-education president.

And liberals say he's not divisive.

It outs the gay agenda and it shows us the power of the LGBT lobby. Obama used to be outspoken against gay marriage. Now he is the LGBT's bitch.

The Gay Agenda is real, and this bathroom thing is just another step towards their ultimate goal: putting sexual deviancy and mental disorders on he same plane as hetero-normative behavior.

Its rather a double edged sword. Some of those states opposing this executive decision are the same states that opted to refuse funds for Planned Parenthood within their states. So...they have a tough sell fighting a position which they themselves have embraced. Conversely anyone supporting the presidents executive decisions on school funding must also accept those states rights to deny Planned Parenthood funding.

Good morning Miss P! :2wave:

Unless you're the person who issued the mandate! Isn't that what liberals are all about, big government?

Besides, this mandate won't hold water under Title IX, which is about sex, not gender discrimination.

The same goes for Hillary. When liberals change positions its called enlightenment.

When republicans change positions its called flip-flopping.

Now that's funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the most effective attacks against Kerry during the '04 election was the GOP base calling Kerry a flip flopper.

It's no more unconstitutional than Reagan's decree requiring all 50 states to change the legal drinking age to 21.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Minimum_Drinking_Age_Act

Obama's decree just like Reagan's doesn't actually force the states to do something, it only makes it so that they lose federal funds if they don't do it.

share with us how the womens' rights are being whittled away

I would say no longer being allowed to question the presence of a man in their locker room is a major whittling.

I do find it amusing though that men have been trying for years to shut down the Vagina Monologues. Little did they know that all they needed to do was slap on a dress and claim to be women and voila!--no more Eve Ensler.

Freedom for all is a good thing. Using LGBT to whittle away at women's rights not so much.

Weird how feminists and women in general overwhelmingly support both the Democratic party, the LGBT community, and the notion that Trans-gendered people should be allowed to use the Bathroom of their choosing. It's almost like they don't see that as being a hindrance to their rights at all you're just using it as a bull**** excuse to justify your bigotry.

Not the women I talk to. Most of them are rather pissed--no pun intended---about all this. The only large group of women I run across who seem not to mind are the brainwashed millennials. But, they are nuts anyway. So, I discount their opinions.

Your fallacy is....
https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/anecdotal

As it turns out....

Exclusive: Women, young more open on transgender issue in U.S. - Reuters/Ipsos poll | Reuters

Not only young people, but more women support transgender people using the bathroom of their choice than oppose. Neither side gets a full majority, but with young people supporting the idea by a 2-1 ration it's only a matter of time before the country as a whole accepts it. Just like Gay Marriage young people are more open minded and willing to support newer ideas.


The only large group of women I run across who seem not to mind are the brainwashed millennials.

LOL!!!! I have some bad news for you. In order to brainwash someone you have to have significant control over the information they are allowed to hear. The age of the internet has expanded people's access to information not constricted it. It is your generation that grew up being forced to pledge your allegiance to the flag on a daily basis that have been brainwashed. From the time you were children you were fed nonsense about religion, and how amazing Capitalism was with little or no access to actual arguments from the other side. The notion of trans-gendered and gay people being messed up in the head was considered such common sense that nobody bothered questioning it. Newsflash for you....the earth is not flat, Gay marriage did not cause an apocalypse, and trans-gendered people are not hurting anybody.

Then they should just use the bathroom which matches their genitals. Why is that such a big deal for them?
