Obama’s Department of Justice is suing North Carolina over the state’s new law requiring individuals to use the public restroom corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates, because racism.
After North Carolina refused to drop the law because the Obama administration said so, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Monday that the DOJ would take the state to court.
According to the DOJ’s lawsuit, the law (HB 2) “constitutes a pattern or practice of employment discrimination on the basis of sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.”
Yuuuuuup. The DOJ is completely convinced that barring a grown man claiming to be a woman from entering the same public locker room as your vulnerable school-aged daughter is just like the Jim Crow laws that legalized racial segregation and perpetuated the racist notion that blacks and whites were genetically distinct.
DOJ’s new rationale is especially curious given that so-called trans advocates have claimed for years that sex and gender are distinct notions, and that one’s gender need not have any relation to one’s biological sex. The term “gender identity” was invented as way of describing this particular delusion. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, however, does not mention gender. It mentions only sex, which is determined exclusively by one’s chromosomal makeup. As of today, though, DOJ has apparently once again decided that gender and sex are totally the same thing.
Comparing the transgender agenda to racial equality seems to be a favorite among leftists. This argument, however, just doesn’t make sense, because race is a social construct while sex is a biological one. For decades, civil rights advocates fought against the notion that blacks and whites were genetically distinct.
Everyone’s chromosomes are literally stamped with his or her sex. Female chromosomes contain two X’s and male chromosomes contain an XY, whereas there is no biological equivalent to dictate who is black and who is white, as much of the definition is dependent upon cultural context.
While race is clearly a social construct, sex is not. Sex is clearly biological, which is why bathrooms are designed to cater to and protect people based on their distinct biological needs. This is why women’s bathroom’s do not contain urinals (and it’s also why lines to the men’s room at large venues like stadiums or concert halls are always so much shorter than those to the women’s bathroom).
Wanting to prevent grown men from using the little girls’ room doesn’t make you a bigot, and wanting to force young girls to shower in a locker room with men who pretend to be women doesn’t make you Martin Luther King, Jr:
TORONTO – A sexual predator who falsely claimed to be transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters was jailed indefinitely on Wednesday.
Justice John McMahon declared Christopher Hambrook — who claimed to be a transgender woman named Jessica — was a dangerous offender.
The judge said he imposed the indefinite prison sentence because there’s a great risk that Hambrook will commit more sex crimes and require strict supervision if he returns to the community.
Men’s and women’s restrooms (and the rules governing them) are different because men and women are biologically and genetically different. Blacks and whites aren’t. That this even has to be explained to adults is a sign of how insane and detached from reality American society has become in 2016.
