Two unlikely groups have teamed up to oppose former President Barack Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate.
The Obama administration told public schools last year they had to allow anyone who identified as transgender to use the bathroom of their choice. If schools refused to enforce the rule, they would be denied federal funding.
The Family Policy Alliance, which is the public policy partner of the Christian conservative organization Focus on the Family, is working with a radical feminist group, the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), to fight the order.
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Kara Dansky, the chair of WoLF’s board of directors, argued that it’s unfair that men who identify as female get the same benefits as women under Title IX.
“We think that ‘women and girls’ are a meaningful category worthy of civil rights protection,” she said. “If we define sex, under Title IX, to mean gender identity, what we’re essentially saying is that ‘women and girl’ can mean anyone who self-identifies as ‘women and girl,’ which makes the category ‘women and girls’ meaningless as a category.”
Dansky said that speaking out on this issue immediately makes you a target for hate.
“We’re called transphobic bigots because we ask questions about gender identity,” Dansky said. “We’re asking questions and we’re standing up for women and girls. And that seems to be not permitted.”
