The U.S. Justice Department is putting the feelings of transgenders — men who think they are women and women who think they are men — above the privacy rights of the vast majority of people who don’t contest the biological facts of who they actually are.
“And what we must not do, what we must never do, is turn on our neighbors, our family members, our fellow Americans for something that they cannot control and deny what makes them human,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Monday.
“[N]one of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislating identity and insists that a person pretend to be something or someone that they are not.”
There is no power granted under the Constitution supporting Lynch’s statement. This is not about transgendered individuals: this is a government overreach to usurp states’ rights.
