President Trump and his Attorney General Jeff Sessions have had a rocky past year.
There have been many times that Trump has been angry with Sessions.
But Sessions just made up for that with his latest move that crushes the last piece of Obama’s legacy.
When former President Barack Obama left office, he was sure to ram as many of his policies through as possible.
He knew that with President Trump being in office, it would be impossible to pass many of his leftist policies.
So instead of admitting defeat, he just rammed them into law with his executive power.
But President Trump took notice and has been reversing those last-minute policies.
And Jeff Sessions just reversed a major one.
When Obama left office he directed prison officials to allow men to move into women’s prisons if the men claim a female gender identity.
So if a male prisoner decides he’s female, he can move from his current prison to a female prison.
Sessions refused to stand for this and revised the policy stating that they “will use biological sex as the initial determination” in deciding which prison an inmate will go to.
As reported by Breitbart:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ deputies are ending President Barack Obama’s last-minute decision to impose the transgender ideology in federal prisons.
Obama’s January 2017 transgender policy directed prison officials to allow men to move into women’s prisons if the men claim a female “gender identity.”
Sessions’ revised policy says officials “will use biological sex as the initial determination” when assigning people to either male or female prisons, according to the policy document published May 11 by Buzzfeed.
Critics said Obama’s transgender policy would have created huge risks of rape because few people who say they are transgender have undergone genital cosmetic surgery, and few can pass as members of the opposite sex. For example, Obama’s policy would allow male criminals into women’s prisons and pressure women-who-say-they-are-men to live in men’s prisons.
Sessions’ new policy marks another step in reasserting the normal biology-based legal distinctions between female and male. Those distinctions were being scrubbed from the law by Obama’s pro-transgender policies. Trump has already begun reversing Obama’s pro-transgender policies in K-12 schools, in health care, and the military which now says it classifies soldiers’ sex by using the “bright line based on biological sex.”
Obama’s policies allowed people to change their legal sex by declaring they have the “gender identity” of an opposite-sex person, regardless of appearance, biology, or public opinion. In practice, this transgender ideology puts a legal gag on teenage girls who do not want to share their bathrooms with boys-who-say-they-feel-like-girls, it silences women who want to object when biologically intact men walk into their showers, and it stigmatizes people who try to preserve sexual privacy and sexual distinctions in a two-sex society of equal, different, and complementary men and women, girls and boys.”
This is huge news for Trump supporters.
The Obama administration was set on passing policies favored by his left-wing supporters, no matter how ridiculous they were.
Policies supporting people who decide to change their gender on a whim is dangerous to the fabric of society, as it encourages more people to make up what gender they are.
Do you think people should be allowed to change their gender to get special treatment?
