MDE caves to feds on bathrooms

The Mississippi Department of Education issued the following press release:

A safe and caring school environment is critical to a student’s ability to learn and achieve. The Mississippi Department of Education will adhere to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as well as the joint guidance issued today by the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice.

What do you do here? You have just been bullied into making a decision over your own existence to provide an education by allowing someone with mental health issues to use whatever bathroom they want.....of all the problems that exist in our country / world.....we are fighting over allowing males to use female restrooms and vice-versa.......We suck at being a country!!!

Maybe a few of the elected officials will learn something.

I think this whole subject is a diversion from the real problems for the purpose of the upcoming elections. Last time, it was free birth control. You know, Republicans conducted a "war on women" because they believe women should buy their own birth control. This year the subject will be bathrooms.

The Dems do not want to talk about the economy, the failed Middle East policy, that we are a laughing stock in the world etc etc. The Democrats and the press will work closely together to change the subject and dialogue.

Set aside the direction of your moral compass for a moment. From the standpoint of the federal government compelling certain behavior from its citizens, it's amazing how far we've gone in 8 years.

MDE has no control over individual school districts and schools to enforce this. Wright has just strengthened the hand of the HB1523 proponents. Obama wants civil war.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A man is accused of choking an 8-year-old girl until she passed out in the bathroom of a restaurant in Chicago's South Loop.

The girl was with her mother at the Jason's Deli in the 1200-block of South Canal Street on May 7, police said. The girl went to the bathroom by herself around 1:15 p.m.

A short time later, her mother heard a scream. She went into the bathroom and found Reese Hartstirn, 33, carrying her unconscious daughter into a stall, police said. He had allegedly choked her with his hands.

4:30, people who are afraid to go to the bathroom by themselves are not going to war for any reason.

MDE and similar agencies from the other 49 states should join together and sue Oboma for threatening to withhold federal funds over an issue in which he clearly has no jurisdiction. But alas, they have no more guts than the Republican party and thus enable him to continue his march to be King. If Hillary is elected, Oboma will likely have her jailed for the obvious crimes she has committed and then declare a national emergency and say the only solution is four more years of hie rein! This man is a total nut job and all of our so called leaders just stand by and watch his dismantling of the country.

"Caving" = MSDOE adhering to federal guidelines.

4:30 Phil Bryant said Carey Wright isn't in charge of the state's public education in an interview with the Associated Press in December 2014. How did she "strengthen the hand of HB1523 opponents?"

This is what you get when you bring someone in from failing school(Carey Wright). MS will never move from last place in education with leadership like this.

The left knows their days are numbered and they are going to try and destroy every part of America they can while still in office. NOTHING they do in the last months in office should surprise anyone. Massive pardons of violent felons, wide open borders, and trying to intimidate anyone that disagrees with them on any issue. And a Republican majority in the US congress that is completely impotent. They are scared of their own shadow. I should have voted for McDaniel - at least he would not get lost going to the lunchroom.

5:23; Eight year olds are not afraid to go to the bathroom by themselves and haven't given a second thought about going to war. It's our obligation as parents and adults to protect children, even yours.

This whole thing is a page straight out of the NAMBLA Handbook. And look closely at the political/social leanings of those who are signing on.

4:36 pm That is not an example of a man dressed as a woman killing that child.

That would be the M.O. for a sexual predator and not the description of a trans gender.

Yes, there have been sexual assaults and murders in public restrooms since there have been public restrooms. This law will not prevent predators from being opportunistic when seeing a vulnerable person they feel they can attack.

Parents shouldn't let their children go into a public restroom unaccompanied or should check it out and stand at the door.

I think men and boys will, however, get pretty freaked out by men who look like women coming into the men's bathroom . And, women will be freaked out by women who look like men coming into their bathroom if genitals are the standard.

That is what this law does.

Except how will it be enforced? Must we carry our birth certificates with us or will we have to show our genitals to a bathroom inspector?

It forces a man who has had sexual reassignment surgery to go into the men's room dressed in women's clothes, with his new breasts ( from hormones or surgery) and with his original genitals removed so that aiming is going to be tough.

Bruce Jenner as Caitlyn is far more likely to be beaten up in a men's room than in a ladies room. The former Bruce is not attracted to women. Indeed, trans genders are have a 40% greater chance of being raped or assaulted currently than those who are comfortable with the sexual organs of birth.

And, whatever will you do if some anxiety ridden person doesn't think your effeminate looking little boy or tomboy looking little girl or you look like you belong in their bathroom? Hmmm?

This law addresses a problem that doesn't exist( trans genders or transvestites assaulting others in bathrooms ) and creates more problems than it solves .

Let's see...
We have over a $400 million dollar tax cut and a $56 million dollar shortfall in the budget and now we want to say " bye bye" to federal dollars?
We've also decided corporations who are united against this bill are all run by boards of liberals and heathens and aren't more concerned about their bottom line or how much of a nightmare this will create for them.
Oh yeah...this is going to turn out well! NOT!
P.S. Be careful out there talking about your support for this bill unless your gaydar is perfect! I'm sure seeing some awful haircuts and dyes! And, if your food tastes funny at some restaurants or your service is slow, I think I know why!

A substantial body of research and documentation already exists detailing the lengths pedophiles will go in order to gain access to their victims and potential victims. Pedophiles will have no problem presenting themselves as Trans. Watch for the red herring delay tactic arguments that there is no statistical evidence that pedophiles are doing exactly that.

Parents should accompany their children to the bathroom if they are afraid their child may be attacked. Public bathrooms are not a place to socialize. They are there for a reason.
Do we have some sort of genital ID machine we have to use? Will there be guards checking genitals?
Haven't you people ever traveled? In many places the bathrooms are for both sexes. In many bathrooms they have women attendants inside the men's bathroom.

9:01 - Your analysis is half baked. This whole notion of 'bathroom choice' has emboldened all kinds of nut jobs. Emboldened them to the point of knowing they are at liberty to enter a girls' bathroom if they so choose, regardless. And nobody will question them under penalty of federal law.

This debacle is not only a green-light-signal to the sexually confused but is a clear signal to a variety of perpetrators of evil, those of all descriptions.

It works the same way the 'Black Lives Matter' movement has cause the killing of police officers all across the country. Both movements have have announced open season on police officers and the privacy of bathrooms. The woodwork, in both cases, is full of nuts.

Drag queens have been around since men could dress up as women. This however is NOT allowing a man dressed as women or "reassignment" surgery (aka mutilation of ones genitals and fully discredited junk medicine - only done by private physicians that would cut their own mother up). Nope this is allowing ANYONE who decides he is feeling womanish today to use the women's showers at a university, high school, or even middle school. I know I was certainly a wise ass as a teenager and no doubt many that age still are. If you think a bunch of boys won't hit the girls showers after volleyball practice as a BIG JOKE then you are clueless about young men. And if this NUT idea becomes law NOTHING can stop this type of behavior. And if you think fathers will not come unglued if some boys are allowed to walk in on their daughters in a shower room or restroom then you know little about fathers. The left has become a bunch of ass clowns. And the more they push their agenda the stronger a Trump figure or even someone like Cruz becomes very palatable. Keep pushing lefties. Keep on pushing. You truly have lost your minds.

Transgender is the PC word for a "very f__d up person".

It's not always as simple as 'go with your little girl to the bathroom if you're afraid'. Thousands of men take their young daughters to the mall, to sporting events, to concerts. It's not as simple as walking into the bathroom with the child.

If the trans-gendered and genitally-confused really represent one percent of the population, let them find alternative solutions to bladder issues on their own.

People have been "passing" as the other sex forever, they just wait until after their school years. Many are employed as the sex they are not. But, the problem seems to be effeminate boys who are being beaten up in the bathrooms at school. Perhaps some type of monitoring could eliminate this bullying. Many effeminate boys mature into good husband and fathers. Tolerance and acceptance needs teaching but mixing the sexes in bathrooms in school years is not a good idea, in my opinion.

How do you know? Were you an effeminate boy? Are you one now?

Anyone got an answer to how people are going to be able to tell if they are going to the right bathroom? Not a lot of people carry their birth certificate when they go to the bathroom.
There are many men who can dress up like women and no one could tell and women who can dress up like men and no one can tell.
How are they going to enforce this law?

7:44 pm I've never been " a boy" but in 70 years on this earth, I've seen a lot of boys and men who are effeminate and a lot of girls and women who look masculine.
7:02 pm is right. The bullying of effeminate boys and masculine looking girls is common and was happening in my youth as well. The girls didn't get beaten up but they certainly were ridiculed. Some of those bullied in my high school did turn out to be homosexual, but some were simply " late bloomers". And, two very masculine looking , popular male athletes turned out to be gay.
Never saw a photo of the well respected Mississippi doctor who is now in prison, did you? You must be the least observant, alert person on the planet.

No one can give me an example of a man dressing up as a woman or a woman dressing up as a man as a guise to kidnap or sexually assault children or adults.
The opponents keep giving examples of public bathroom assaults and this law won't deter that from happening. Fortunately, it's still a rather small percentage of all assaults.
I can however give you many examples of children being snatched from their homes by predators, of women and children assaulted and killed in their homes.
I can give countless examples of assaults and murders by family members or people the victim or family knew and trusted.
I'm at a loss that the details of nationally famous cases of the last decades haven't helped supporters of this bill glean something about how sexual predators operate. Does the name Sandusky ring a bell? How about Elizabeth Smart or Jon Benet Ramsey? Ted Bundy?
Indeed, if dressing up as the opposite gender starts to be an M.O., then those who invented a problem that doesn't currently exist are to blame for giving predators the idea!
But, relax, sexual predators enjoy intimidation. They like their victim's fear and want to exude power. That's hard to pull off in a dress and wig.

May 15, 2016 at 7:26 AM: "No one can give me an example of a man dressing up as a woman or a woman dressing up as a man as a guise to kidnap or sexually assault children or adults."

TORONTO - A convicted sexual predator who falsely claimed to be transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters could be declared a dangerous offender this month.

Christopher Hambrook — who claimed to be a transgender woman named Jessica — has attacked four vulnerable females between the ages of five and 53 in Montreal and Toronto over the past 12 years.
His latest crimes revealed a continuing trend of exploiting the vulnerable — this time women living at shelters.

The first victim, a deaf and homeless woman from Quebec, checked into the Fred Victor shelter on Jan. 8, 2012. Hambrook had been staying there as “Jessica” since Dec. 23, 2011. She was soon terrorized by Hambrook’s unwanted advances.
The second victim sought refuge at a Dundas St. W. shelter on Feb. 11, 2012, after suffering serious domestic abuse, court heard.

She remained there two weeks. Hambrook — who told people he was a transgender woman — was admitted there at the same time and ended up being his victim’s roommate.

Those of you who are moaning about the mental anguish endured by a man who stands at a urinal after having his genitals removed fail to understand that he can go into a stall and take both a seat and a piss, hopefully in that order.

Meanwhile, there might be five men in this state who have (voluntarily) had their genitals removed and there are probably 500 waiting to enter a stall with or next to your daughter or granddaughter.

"In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to." - Theodore Dalrymple

Propaganda is the tool, the -ism is interchangeable.

Doesn't matter where 'they live'. This is a national issue. Obama is on a mission to control all toilet seats in the country.

That cartoon going around is so true. It shows a middle eastern leader threatening to terrorize (and blow asunder) the world while Obama responds that he's busy deciding that little boys should pee in the bathrooms of little girls.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
