Eleven States File Lawsuit Against Transgender Bathroom Directive

According to Fox News, eleven states have filed lawsuits this week against the Obama administration over the school directive allowing transgender students to select which bathroom they use.

The suit was files in a Texas court shortly after the announcement earlier this month that transgender students should be allowed to use the washroom of their choice to match the gender they identify with.

General Ken Paxton, Texas General Attorney said, “This represents just the latest example of the current administration’s attempts to accomplish by executive fiat what they couldn’t accomplish through the democratic process in Congress.  President Obama has excluded the voice of the people. We stand today to ensure those voices are heard.”

The eleven states that have initiated the lawsuit are: Tezas, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Arizona’s Department of Education, main Government Paul LePage, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia.

 The lawsuit says that defendants have conspired to turn places of work and school nationwide into a laboratory for “massive social experiments, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights.”
The lieutenant governor of Texas has already claimed that the state is willing to forfeit $10 billion in funding for education rather than comply.
