|Yeah, I'd never of him either, but there he is|
smiling smugly about his victory over school
kids who just want to use the bathroom.
|I'm sure in Ken's mind he's a goddamn|
hero, but to me is just some jerk
freaking out over bathroom signs.
"We are pleased that the court ruled against the Obama Administration's latest illegal federal overreach. This President is attempting to rewrite the laws enacted by the elected representatives of the people, and is threatening to take away federal funding from schools to force them to conform. That cannot be allowed to continue, which is why we took action to protect States and School District, who are charged under state law to establish a safe and disciplined environment conductive to student learning."
-Texas AG, Ken Paxton, giving his
'The line must be drawn he-yah!' speech
|Whoa, whoa, whoa, nobody's discriminating here. We just don't think|
the Federal Government has any business interfering with the State's sovereign
right to discriminate against trans people. Huh? No, I can't hear myself speak.
|In the 70's things were a little more black|
and white. John Travolta, for example,
was legally female because of his haircut.
Ok, that's probably not true. Probably. At least, I'd like to think it's not. But even if this is, as Paxton tweets, about government overreach, do you think he could, I don't know, pick his battles? Because right now he's going to bat for a State's rights to pick on trans kids and I'd imagine they've got enough bullshit to deal with at school without district courts chiming in on their bathroom assignments.
|Because there is nothing in the world more important for the court to do with it's|
time than to referee the State of Texas's tantrum over grade school bathroom policy.
