OKLAHOMA INTRODUCES MEASURE TO IMPEACH OBAMA OVER BATHROOM RIGHTS

Oklahoma introduced a measure to impeach President Obama over the administration’s “directive” that trans-gendered students have every right to use whatever bathroom they prefer, and schools should accommodate as necessary. According to The Hill, Oklahoma’s measure also names Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Education Secretary John King Jr in the impeachment. 

The President’s directive stipulates that if public schools do not oblige to the terms of “equal access” and separate from the “separate but equal” mentality, funding for their schools will cease to exist. Oklahoma conservatives see this as an overreach and disrespect to the separation of powers.

According to Randy Ellis of NewsOk here’s what Oklahoma conservatives have proposed:

“Senate Concurrent Resolution 43 calls upon Oklahoma’s elected U.S. representatives to “file articles of impeachment against the President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, the Secretary of Education and any other federal official liable to impeachment who has exceeded his or her constitutional authority.” 

“The companion bill, Senate Bill 1619, authorizes students and their parents and guardians to request a religious accommodation if their public schools allow students who are anatomically born as one sex to access restrooms, athletic changing facilities or showers that are designated for the opposite sex.”

Earlier in May, Attorney General Loretta Lynch linked the HB2 bathroom bill to civil rights, noting the law is no different from Jim Crow and black code laws in our past. Lynch believes it’s imperative the Obama administration defend the civil rights of trans-gendered students, just like it was essential to protect the civil rights of African-Americans. Unfortunately, Oklahoma conservatives perceive the topic quite differently. In their minds, allowing transgender people to use bathrooms not assigned to their sexual organ puts women and children lives at risk of being raped.

Often, social conservatives pivot to examples of wicked sexual men dressing as a woman to enter a woman’s restroom unquestioned. There are some cases of this occurring, but it’s not a crisis, although it certainly is despicable. Social conservatives are manipulating facts to fit their agenda — because the sexual violators in their examples aren’t transgender identifiers, they are cisgendered men. Conservatives neglect to explain this important detail on purpose — because fear sends social conservatives to the voting booth, not facts.
