On Friday, May 13, the U.S. Department of Education and Department of Justice issued a joint instruction, which they called significant guidance, to public school districts across the country.
The guidance stated that in order to receive federal funds for education, every public school district must provide services, restrooms, and equal access to all students according to their stated gender identity.
The federal government has ordered that when any student and his parents tell the school that his gender identity has changed if he was born a boy, for example, but considers himself a girl the school must treat him, in every possible way, like an actual girl. The government declared that the boy who says he is a girl must be permitted to change in locker rooms with other girls, to stay in girls rooms on overnight trips, and, very often, to participate on girls sports teams.
The Administration is Simply Wrong
This guidance is deeply disturbing. In fact, the administrations action is simply wrong. It is wrong to deny the fundamental difference between men and women; and to teach children that our identity, at its very core, is arbitrary and self-determined. God created us male and female, and policies like this deny the basic beauty of God's creation.
