Rep. Sanders Comments on Obama Administration Top-Down Transgender Bathroom Directive

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mike Sanders (R-Kingfisher) issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration directive to public schools Friday that threatens the federal funding of schools that do not allow transgender students to use bathrooms matching their preferred gender identity:

“The federal overreach under this administration is simply disgraceful. Even setting the philosophical question aside, it is incredibly impractical to demand that every school make some sort of policy change, when most do not even include a single transgender individual. Does he not realize that the primary purpose of a school is to educate students? Instead of supporting that purpose, the federal government has been spending our tax dollars to use schools as a way to promote a liberal social agenda. The last thing a parent wants to worry about is having their child molested in a school bathroom as a result of a federal mandate on blurred gender lines when each person should have the right for peace and privacy in any bathroom they use.”
