Texas judge blocks Obama "bathroom" policy on transgender students in public schools for entire nation


I wasn’t aware that federal judge can issue a nationwide injunction about anything, but Reed O’Connor in Texas issued such an order to bar the Obama administration from applying Title IX of the Civil Rights Act in a way to include gender identity, if it differs from gender stated in a birth certificate, when applied to school districts enforcing “bathroom bill” rules.

Ariane de Vogue has the story and video for CNN here.
 
Personally, I think it’s reasonable to require a birth certificate change as long as the state doesn’t put barriers in the way (including cost).  But parents could block the gender identity change declaration of minor children.  As a matter of common sense, it seems too radical to object to that requirement.
