Action Alert! Thank President Donald Trump for Ending Regulations Accommodating Transgender Students
   Tuesday, February 28, 2017   at   8:11 AM

The Trump administration on Feb. 22 took the welcome step of reversing the previous administration’s misguided attempt to forge social policy for public–school students who don’t accept their biological gender.

Because we were aghast at the Obama administration’s original action in 2015, we are pleased that the Trump administration has eliminated it. And we believe the hysterical response from the Left regarding this common–sense step reveals more about them than it does about boys and girls who are gender–confused.

This experiment in social engineering began when the Obama administration sent this "Dear Colleague" letter to public school officials in May 2015. It was, to be charitable, a classic overreach of the federal government into a state matter. Former President Obama’s departments of Justice and Education used a single court case to impose the view that gender is not something assigned at birth, but rather can be chosen by an individual — in the case of public schools, chosen by people too young to make mature life–changing decisions. And it used the threat of withholding federal funding to require state and local officials accommodate less than 0.5 percent of all students at the expense of the safety and privacy of the rest of the student body, by requiring schools to allow transgender boys and girls to use the rest rooms and locker rooms of the gender they want to be rather than the one they were born with.

It was a classic intrusion of the federal government into state and local matters, and the Trump administration put an end to it last week. Good.

The progressive response that followed has been amusing at best and disturbing at worst.

Even those who believe boys and girls aren’t necessarily born that way, and that those beliefs require the accommodation of school officials, should be able to agree that the solutions to these issues are best resolved at the state and local levels. There, public servants who are accountable to the voters can devise solutions that respect the privacy and safety needs of all students. It’s just not the federal government’s business, and we’re glad the Trump administration understands that in a way the Obama administration obviously didn’t.
