Skip to comments.Without fanfare, Obama advances transgender rights
Posted on 06/21/2014 7:00:15 AM PDT by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama, who established his bona fides as a gay and lesbian rights champion when he endorsed same-sex marriage, has steadily extended his administrations advocacy to the smallest and least accepted band of the LGBT rainbow: transgender Americans.
With little of the fanfare or criticism that marked his evolution into the leader Newsweek nicknamed the first gay president, Obama became the first chief executive to say transgender in a speech, to name transgender political appointees and to prohibit job bias against transgender government workers. Also in his first term, he signed hate crime legislation that became the first federal civil rights protections for transgender people in U.S. history.
Since then, the administration has quietly applied the power of the executive branch to make it easier for transgender people to update their passports, obtain health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, get treatment at Veterans Administration facilities and seek access to public school restrooms and sports programsjust a few of the transgender-specific policy shifts of Obamas presidency.

God will have His rainbow back.
I stopped reading half way through the first sentence.
Transgenders weren’t born that way.
It took a scalpel.
I won’t use the word. Gender is set at conception.
the first gay president, is NOT a nickname.
Imagine what other plans he has for the nest couple of years!
Do you think the homo crowd will take advantage of this legislation to get people they don’t like put into prison because they didn’t approve of their lifestyle? .../no S
The only thing going for Obama...
The term ‘transgender’ does not indicate sexual reassignment surgery. It’s how they ‘define’ themselves. IOW, if a high school boy ‘feels’ he is really a girl, then he will get to use the girls’ restroom.
Can I get protected status from the likes of Obama?
It is called police profiling. Using prisons for conversion. Libs as a new morph of sick murderers plaguing the 20th century will make their mark.

And I’m sure some rapist will take advantage of that opportunity sooner or later.
0 just keeps trying to ensure that he will go down as the worse president in U.S. history
Indeed, and in Islam a scalp.
Forcing America to sleep with the enemy.
Michelle is a trannie .... HAS to be.
Yep. Sodom and Gomorrah will look like seminaries compared to what America will be soon.
go down ?
LGBT rainbow? We need to take our language back. I can pick up a Merck Manual and read about a “rainbow” of maladies. Let’s discuss the “rainbow” of pathogenic bacteria.
The use thereof is deliberately blasphemous, especially with regard to the description of a “rainbow” (iris) around God’s throne in Revelation 4:3 and the token of God’s covenant to never flood the earth again in Genesis 9:13-16.
With Obama, homosexual life is an ever present reality which touches him to the core. It is personal.
I fully expect that when the occasion affords Obama the opportunity to either sponsor or perform a gay marriage in the White House, he will do so. It would certainly not surprise me if such a same sex marriage has already taken place and remains another unreported event by the USA socialist press. Obama is so involved with the issue that he will continue to try and validate his promotion of everything that relates to the homosexual life.
Science deniers. You are born with a set of chromosomes establishing if you are a male or a female. Odd that global warming is accepted by the liberals as established scientific doctrine but the science of genetics is ignored.
Transgendered people are not homosexuals.
Formerly known on a saner planet as ‘carnival freaks’.
The permanent Obama aristocracy announced today new federal protections for those with "inter-generational" sexual preference.
"I have evolved from my former outdated position on people we used to stigmatise as pedophiles. I am pleased to mandate in law the special protections these vulnerable Americans have previously been denied and so richly deserve." "People with "inter-generational" sexual preference are not free to choose whom they love, any more than all the other sexual preferences we have championed and protected over the past decade."
His Indonesian tranny nanny Turdi will be so pleased...
He advances the detriment of civilization.
Gas prices have doubled since his coronation, but he’s still more concerned about Colorado grouse than jobs or fuel prices.
Oh, and he’s been pretty busy babysitting the tens of thousands Mexican and Central American kids he invited over, and bribing their parents to take them back.
And re-naming the Redskins and school lunches—oh yeah, and pooh-poohing the dozens of scandals sprouting like toad stools—and lots of other important stuff is taking up a lot of his time
Other than those things, yeah—if he were any more homo he’d burst into flames.
I thought trannies had to have had the surgery to change their sex in order to be official transgendered persons. If not, what a huge cluster* “I can’t come to work today, I have PMS,” he said.
I lived in San Francisco for years, knew many gay people, most of whom were OK neighbors, fellow employees in the workplace, fellow students at a school I went to —a professional school, all adults. Often, I couldn’t tell who was gay.
Had lunch with a woman friend at a nice upscale restaurant. She pointed out “women” at a nearby table who were, she knew, actually men. Yuk. My stomach turned, but I turned away and ignored them. All went well UNTIL we needed to use the LADIES ROOM. And guess who was in there with us. That was horrible, and we were adult women, not easily shocked. I cannot imagine what a dreadful experience that would be for youngsters.
These places can’t put in a third restroom for those who cannot figure out which sex they are?
As for trannies, they have to be among the most screwed up people on the planet. Unconscionable to let them have surgery before they reach both puberty and 21. And unconscionable for Medicare, Medicaid, and Obmacare to pay for it — at the expense of seniors, btw, who have paid into the system for a lifetime and now face reductions in promised services.
I don’t really give a hoot if some guy wants to cut off his plumbing. I do give a hoot if I’m expected to pay for it. And I do give a hoot if he uses the ladies room.
transgender is a misnomer. There can be no such thing. God never created one. Yes, sometimes there are birth defects (mutations), but don’t blame God for those. Man and sin are responsible for that.
transgender = mentally ill, before or after any surgery. With “after surgery”, you have indisputable proof.
THESE PEOPLE (LGBT) ARE NOT “NORMAL”. They are sick, literally.
Helping his family along
These people are so few in number. I would imagine there are fewer transsexuals than there are homosexuals and lesbians.
God help us all.
