GENDER IDENTITY, PERSONAL PRIVACY ISSUES AND GOVERNMENT OVERREACH
From Alliance Defending Freedom:
We are living in a culture today where many have rejected biological realities and are demanding that society adapt to their perceived gender identity, regardless of their biological sex. As a result, an invasion of agenda-driven policies that open up restrooms, locker rooms, and shower facilities to members of the opposite sex are popping up across the country with no thought on how these policies affect the rest of the population.
From Wisconsin Family Action:
Just days after filing legal action against North Carolina for the recently enacted bathroom safety and privacy law, House Bill 2, today the Obama Administration is attempting to force its “All In” bathroom policy on EVERY STATE in the nation. A joint press statement issued by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education today seeks to provide “guidance” to all public schools, colleges and universities across the U.S. In the statement and related documents, the Obama Administration seeks full implementation of its radical and unlawful attempt to redefine the word “sex” in federal laws and regulations to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
