Obama’s Insensitive “War on Women” at University of Arkansas!
By John W. Lillpop
Women students in Arkansas unite! You have been betrayed and sacrificed at the alter of political correctness by Attorney General Eric Holder, a foot soldier in the underreported Barack Obama War on Women.
As reported at the reference, the latest outrage steals one of the most precious rights guaranteed to women:
The inalienable Constitutional right to privacy and male-free bathroom experiences, unless specifically requested by a qualified female.
The report, in part:
On orders from Barack Obama’s Department of Justice, officials with the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith have given permission for a 38-year-old man to use the women’s restrooms on campus.
The report comes from Campus Reform.org, which explained that the individual also is seeking to have someone pay for a sex reassignment surgery to change from male to female.
Already living as a female, the individual, identified in the report as Jennifer Braly, started using women’s restrooms on campus, but quickly was the subject of complaints from women who saw him there.
The university had tried to make accommodations, designating gender-neutral restrooms in some buildings.
Not good enough, however.
Braly filed a complaint with the Civil Rights Division in the Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder, school officials reported. The DOJ contacted the school.
“[T]he office of civil rights basically made its expectations through the attorney and the decision was made to respond to that direction,” said Mark Horn, the vice president of university relations. “[T]he DOJ complaint caused revisiting of our thinking
“In the eyes of the law this individual [Braly] is entitled to use the bathroom that she identifies with,” Horn said.
The DOJ complaint was filed by Braly after the university told him to use any of the gender-neutral restrooms on campus.
“One problem to this is there are not unisex bathrooms in every building,” Braly wrote in an online essay about how other people should contribute to his surgery costs.
“Especially the two main buildings where most of my classes are, so I have to go to a completely different building to use the restroom.”
While the university offered to convert other restrooms to gender-neutral, Braly said that wasn’t satisfactory.
The Campus Reform report said while anatomy matters little to the DOJ, it still remains a concern for other students.
“‘I disagree with allowing a male to use the female restrooms,” Amanda Shook, a senior at UA, told Campus Reform. “Even if they are a transgendered person, they are still a man, and should have to use the men’s restroom.”
The DOJ and school both have declined to release the letter giving the school directions on the dispute, Campus Reform reported.
The DOJ told Campus Reform that the records “pertain to a currently active Civil Rights Division enforcement and access to the records should therefore be denied pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(A) since disclosure thereof could reasonably be expected to interfere with Civil Rights Division enforcement proceedings.”
While Braly did not respond to Campus Reform requests for comment, there is an extensive monologue by Braly on the fundraising website WePay.
That reflects that $75 has been contributed to the estimated $18,500 costs of the surgery.
Braly writes that his finances are depleted because when a second marriage ended, a custody battle “drained all my funds.”
Part of the reason for requesting donations for the surgery is because Braly’s income goes partly toward the monthly costs of hormone treatments as well as “required psychotherapy for transsexuals.”
Jennifer Braly may be a terrific fellow or gal, and is certainly all liberal in his/her thinking.
Whom else but a parasitical lefty would refuse the university offer to create a gender-neutral potty-room just to accommodate his needs, AND also expect others to pay the $18,500 medical bill for aligning his God-given plumbing to human whimsy?
This flagrant abuse of women is guaranteed to become a volatile election issue when voters realize that the Obama war machine has shoved women and their Constitutional rights under the bus just to pacify a cranky, uncooperative transgender nut ball who is male...at the moment!
In keeping with the “progressive way” of vacating common sense to assure PC, the university should be ordered to convert ALL men/women restrooms to gender-neutral potties, AND to forward $18,500 to Jennifer Braly ASAP to meet his urgent medical needs.
What about the need to protect women from the unwelcome presence of males?
We are told that the Obama position is “evolving” and should be completed sometime (unspecified) before or after the election, depending on the poll results and cash flow into the campaign.
