We all know about Charlotte NC and the City Council’s attempt to change the designation concerning public restrooms. Also, we are surely well versed in the subsequent HB2 law passed by the North Carolina Legislature banning such legislation.
In reaction to this, the President gave the order of compliance through the Board of Education and the Department of Justice. It was warned that all federally funded schools must comply with Obama’s interpretation of Title IX of the Education Amendment.
This led to the pending lawsuit by twenty states, challenging the president’s interpretation. But now another institution has entered the legal melee.

Three students in the Pittsburgh area who identify as transgender have sued their school district over its new resolution that student should use the restroom that correlates with their biological gender.
Jacob Evancho, who goes by the name Juliet, Erik Ridenour, who goes by the name Elissa, and a third student who has only identified themselves as A.S., have sued the Pine-Richland School District for changing its rules regarding restroom use.
Last month, the Pine-Richland School District overturned its longstanding practice of allowing students to use the restroom that corresponds with their “gender identity.”
This school district has stepped out to bring things back to the way that they have always been. And they are doing this in spite of the fact that they might have to fight this battle alone.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education also told the outlet (the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) that it believes schools have to uphold the Obama administration’s recent guidelines on the matter.
“All schools in Pennsylvania that receive federal funding are expected to comply with the requirements as outlined by the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice,” said spokesperson Casey Smith. “The Wolf administration is committed to creating a culture of inclusiveness across the commonwealth. The governor will continue to work with the General Assembly to pass comprehensive anti-discrimination legislation that protects all Pennsylvanians.”
In other words, the current administration in Pennsylvania is not going to buck their master. This is a sad time to be an American.
