RNC not OK with PC in DC

White House LGBT lightsRepublicans are being commended for taking a stand that recognizes gender and pushes back against political correctness.

Barbwire.com founder and attorney Matt Barber says the Republican National Committee has legal precedence on its side when its leaders condemned left-wing efforts to allow men to use women's restrooms, lockers rooms and showers.

RNC officials passed a resolution last month that condemned the Obama administration for using Title IX to bully public schools over transgender students.

The RNC called that tactic "government overreach," reported The Washington Blade, a gay-rights newspaper based in D.C.

Barber, who studies constitutional law, says at least two courts have ruled that those men don't enjoy "equal protection" under the 14th Amendment or civil rights protection under Title IV.

Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)The resolution passed by the RNC was predictably condemned by the Democratic National Committee. A spokesman complained that Republicans have yet to approve a Supreme Court nominee, give "equal pay" to women, or raise the minimum wage – which are all incidentally Democrat issues.

"But when it comes to attacking trans people," the DNC spokeman said, "they’ve got all the time in the world."

Barber says the Obama administration has misapplied the language of Title IX, which addresses gender and not those who are confused about the definition. A public school that caves to that controversial interpretation, he says, means allowing young men to shower with young women.

"That is sexual harassment that puts women at risk," Barber insists. "It's a violation of privacy and so the RNC is standing up for women and women's rights here."
