The Trump administration is bullying children now.
The Trump administration is bullying children now. In a vindictive move, the departments of justice and education just shredded federal guidelinesthat instructed public schools how best to protect transgender students from discrimination. Specifically, the guidance they revoked made it clear that Title IX – the landmark law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational institutions – requires schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity.
The attack highlights the importance of an expected supreme court decision on the issue, but it should also serve as a wake-up call to the mainstream LGBTQ rights movement, which for decades has failed to listen to and address the issues facing the most marginalized members of the queer community.
