Transgender Bathroom Case Goes to SCOTUS

Oct. 31, 1996

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday they will hear the appeal from the Gloucester County School Board in Virginia on the so-called transgender bathroom decision in G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. This is the first time that the Court will be addressing the question of whether laws protecting against sex discrimination in education are applicable to “gender identity.”

The student bringing the lawsuit, Gavin Grimm, a 17-year-old high school senior, is a biological girl who now says she subjectively “identifies” as a “boy.”  When Grimm began using the boys’ restroom, some parents complained. Then the school board adopted a policy requiring students to use either the restroom that corresponds with their biological gender or a private, single-stall restroom.

The justices said they will hear the appeal sometime next year. The High Court’s order means that Grimm will not be able to use the boys’ bathroom in the meantime.

“It is ridiculous that the Supreme Court has to address whether a confused girl who wants to use the boys’ restroom should be treated as a boy,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “The school district’s responsibility is to protect the safety of students from harmful situations. The federal law does not allow people to change their gender by fantasizing they are something other than reality. How the Supreme Court should rule is simple and obvious. The federal law does not allow persons to subjectively think, and therefore be treated, as the opposite of their biological sex. I have very little confidence in the Supreme Court to follow the plain rule of law. Who knows what a majority of the current justices will do because they often put their own personal ideology over the law,” said Staver.

The ‘Transgender’ Lobby’s Civil Rights Con – Common Sense Bathroom Laws Are Nothing Like Racist Jim Crow Laws

“Race and Transgenderism are utterly incomparable, and so are common sense bathroom laws and racist segregation. Yet this hasn’t stopped immoralists and pro-LGBT advocates from drawing a false equivalence between the two.”–Bruce Smith Jr.

Folks, we welcome Bruce Smith Jr., founder of Purity Quest Ministries, as a contributor to Americans For Truth. Smith analyzes the LGBT analogy between “transgender women” (men in dresses) being denied entry into female restrooms and racist Jim Crow laws of the past. Former GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has called such analogies “a bunch of crap,” and we agree. Smith is also the author of the book, The Truth About Homosexuality, which I encourage you to purchase.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

We’re being lied to and the liars at the fore of the “transgender” movement hope we don’t notice. The problem is their falsehoods are so obvious that it is impossible to overlook them– except for those who just aren’t paying attention and the liberals who actually believe the lies are true.

In any case, it is time to set the record straight on the “transgender” activist movement, the lies on which it is based, and the liars that are perpetuating this insanity.

Let’s begin with the term itself. The common liberal definition of “transgender” is a person trapped inside the body of the opposite sex. This is telling because it assumes that it is possible for someone to be trapped in the wrong body, which is a false assumption. Moreover, it establishes that “transgenderism” is based entirely on feelings and opinions; it is a concept that only exists in the mind of the subject.

Race_Is_Not_A_Feeling_Graphic_Bruce_Smith_QuoteThus, “transgenderism” is subjective not objective. In other words, it does not correspond to reality. This is why “transgenderism” has been diagnosed as a “gender identity disorder.”

Race, on the other hand, is objective. I am a multiracial man—some would say person of color; that is a fact. Race is not limited to the mind of the subject. It is actual, it corresponds with reality and is verifiable.
