Trump’s good or bad idea about transgenders bathroom issue?

This article is about Trump’s administration who has a conservative worldview and who took off the guidelines for the protection of the transgenders students in public school about 2 months ago. They cannot go in the bathroom of the gender that they identify themselves with anymore. They need to go in the bathroom of their gender that they are born with. This is the actual opposite of what Obama’s administration put in place with a progressive worldview to protect transgenders.

This decision is likely to appear in a case before the Supreme Court, which is a about a 17 years old student named Gavin Grimm who complain about being discriminated in men’s bathroom and claims it under Title IX that is a federal law applied in school to bans sex discrimination. Trump’s withdraw of protection is making it harder for transgender students.

Taking off the protection is not a pro or anti transgender decision is explaining the author of the article.

The original guidance on bathroom use was originally brought up in January 2015 by an employee of the Department of education and again from the DOJ and the DOE in May 2016 and now the issue is if an official in an executive agency can tell what Title IX means? There are some ways to explain it. Some people think that Title IX was put in place as an anti-discrimination law. But the law did not ever used these words. Judges and others have found a different conclusion to that issue. The fact that Title IX should protect transgenders is an understandable way of thinking but it is not the law according to Danny Cevallos, CNN Legal Analyst.

And something is making the case even trickier, Trump’s administration new position by not imposing any interpretation of the Title IX in court. There is some decent argument about Obama that should never had done this in the first place. There is also many things to concede if you take the position that it should include transgenders.

Some people might think that Trump’s administration did that with the purpose of being against transgenders, it might be a possibility but Trump does not have anything against them. For this other paradox: why did they root against Gavin Grimm in this pending case? The Court may conclude that Obama’s agency had the power to impose their will to the society and it is the same for Trump administration to apply a law. And supporting Grimm’s story is in a way kind of supporting the idea of an empowered Trump administration. But what does it actually means to support an empowered administration in the United State?
