Good news, transgender kids! The Betsy DeVos Department Of Teaching Kids To Read Good And Do Other Stuff Good Too has decided that you get to pee! But yeah, like, not at school or anything, so could you take care of that at home, or maybe in a bush? It’s not that Betsy DeVos hates you — Jesus says fundamentalist assholes like DeVos aren’t allowed to hate people — but rather that she is going to use her power as a Trump asshole to make sure if you are discriminated against at school, you can’t complain to the Department of Education. What? You have to pee? Well you should have thought about that before you offended Betsy DeVos’s fundamentalist dickwad sentiments by being born transgender.

Buzzfeed reports:

The Education Department has told BuzzFeed News it won’t investigate or take action on any complaints filed by transgender students who are banned from restrooms that match their gender identity, charting new ground in the Trump administration’s year-long broadside against LGBT rights. […]

… [O]n Thursday, Liz Hill, a spokesperson for the agency, responded “yes, that’s what the law says” when asked again if the Education Department holds a current position that restroom complaints from transgender students are not covered by a 1972 federal civil rights law called Title IX.

Asked for further explanation on the department’s position, Hill said Friday, “Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity.”

Hill added that maybe the Ed Department might look at complaints from transgender kids on other issues that don’t have to do with the potty, because somehow those count under Title IX, but not potty stuff, because the law doesn’t even say “potty” one time.

This is funny because ACTUALLY the courts have been coming to the conclusion, like the Obama Justice Department did, that because gender identity is, at heart, about gender (it is right there in the name of it!), then yes, discriminating based on gender identity is sex discrimination, and that it’s really weird it took people so long to figure that out in the first place. Indeed, as Buzzfeed notes, appeals courts for both the 6th and 7th circuits have come to that conclusion. So in essence, case law has been developing rapidly in the direction of letting trans kids use the damn bathroom, but Betsy DeVos is standing athwart that progress and telling trans kids they’ll just have to STOP (peeing in a bathroom that matches them). Betsy DeVos is fucked up.

Let’s hear it from an Obama person:

Catherine Lhamon, who led the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights during the Obama administration, said the new school-restroom policy is legally dubious.

“Until now, the official position of the Department has been that Title IX protects all students and that they were evaluating how that protection applies to the issue of bathroom access,” she said in an email to BuzzFeed News. “This new categorical bar of civil rights protection for transgender children required to attend schools every day ignores the text of the law, courts’ interpretation of the law, the stated position of the Department to date, and human decency.”

But now that Betsy DeVos, who only is running the Education Department because of an odd kind of rich white Republican affirmative action where rich white Republicans get cushy jobs in the Trump administration as long as they’re as greedy and stupid as Trump is, is the sheriff of schools, it’s open season on transgender kids, just like it’s open season on pretty much everybody who isn’t white, straight, Republican and Christian these days in Trump’s America.

Of course, this is all happening after a year of Trump assaults on trans folk in general, and the entire LGBT population in a broader sense — military trans bans and euphemistically named “religious freedom” executive orders and Jeff Sessions acting like a common Jeff Sessions, that fucking guy!

Apropos of nothing, the teachers’ unions have released their report cards for Betsy DeVos’s first year in office, and surprise, 80,000 teachers give her solid F’s on everything besides “being a total loser dickhead with none of the qualifications to run an education department.”

For that one, she got an A+!

        This administration would use trans people as bait.

      • Msgr_MΩment

        We have a constitutional right to arm bears. The trans students, not so much.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        Armed trans students wouldn’t get bashed. They could just claim they thought they were being attacked by a bear.

    Before trump and the cabinet of deplorables I would not have advocated revenge, but, the Democrats must win with a super-majority and wipe this administration off the face of the earth; tax the ever-loving shit out of people like DeVos; and fix all the loop-holes trump and company are using to steal from us.

        And none of this moving on for healing. These people need to experience personal hurt equal to what they claim they experience under Democrats so they’ll be wary of pulling this bullshit again.

    • Gigglesnort

      Yeah, the next President has his/her job already cut out: just reverse everything Trump did. Kind of the way he is trying to reverse Obama, but Obama was a decent guy (despite flaws) and Trump is an orange monster let loose on us, with a bunch of monster sidekicks like DeVos.

    This woman couldn’t run a produce department.

      produce is not easy…I’d say pay outhouse

      • Longstreet63

        Pay outhouse fits, since she could use her family’s money and influence to ensure that, say, prison inmates are required to use it, with fees in the $40 range.

    It’s as if she is trying to make out the Dept of Education into some kind of multi-level scheme with the eelights on top and various others at the bottom while getting pennies on the dollar. I can’t imagine that the woman who married into Amway would know of such a thing…

    yeah… you lost her at: “and human decency.”

  • Tennessee Rain Genius

    This is so stupid. I am 56 years old and attended public school and college and have used a multitude of public restrooms in various locations. In all that time, I have never, ever, ever seen another woman’s genitalia while using any of those restrooms. Never. What is the big fucking deal about all of this? Are people unaware of the concept of stalls?

    • gnomemansanisland

      Well, you haven’t looked hard enough. – Betsy Devos

    • Longstreet63

      It’s just an excuse. It comes down to a denial of the existence of Trans folk. This issue is based on the idea that they’re faking it in order to get some perverse thrill.

      • willi0000000

        it’s because that’s what they’d do!

        • Ghenghis McCann

          Bore a hole in the partition between the stalls, so they can have a quick peek?

          • willi0000000

            quick peek? . . . they’d camp out there.

      • LeighBowery’sLuxuryComedy

        Exactly. They don’t believe trans people actually *exist*, in the sense of being truly trans. Ergo, they are men in dresses (they seem unaware trans folk can be either/any persuasion); men in dresses don’t go in the ladies room unless they are there to do More Perverted Stuff.

        • Amazing Professional Lunatic

          Yeah, seeing a semi-bearded transman (who hasn’t fully transitioned) in the ladies room doesn’t freak out the women in there, especially if they have young daughters. No, not at all. Let me tell ya.

          • LeighBowery’sLuxuryComedy

            I can barely imagine. Good luck to you on your journey; hopefully we can start restoring some sanity to this country come November.

          • Amazing Professional Lunatic

            I completed my transition years ago, but the memories have been freshened up by these butt nuggets.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      You’re not a perv like Betsy.

    • (((fka_donnie_d))), SOB

      Because this whole thing was cooked up by people who would rather wet themselves than use a public restroom in the first place.

      The less snarky answer; because it was cooked up by the one group of people who actually have a chance to see someone’s naughty bits in a public restroom. Who might that be?

      • Rags

        It’s just authoritarianism.

        • (((fka_donnie_d))), SOB

          Yes, but the form is instructive

  • Cock Blockula

    Is it just me or does DeVos look like a badly done trans woman? Maybe she should be forced to show her jewels and prove her gender identity before entering a womens’ room.

    • gnomemansanisland

      check her long form

      • notanncoulter

        no thank you.

    • TJ Barke

      It may be he’s biding his time, given that he knows a repuke congress will be entirely uncooperative.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      It’s working to the extent that the Republican congress won’t do a goddamn thing even if Mueller comes up with video of Trump fucking a baby porcupine while Jared holds it down. Which is why we need a Blue Armageddon in November.

    Can you imagine what daily life is like at Betsy’s house? Awkward, choreographed interactions; a constant struggle to hide the self loathing and the deep contempt from each other. All that money and all that misery. The bad thing is that she gets to inflict her unhappiness on the rest of us.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      It has to do with Dutch Reformed Calvinism, which is a fucked up totally screw that Jesus of Nazareth cult.

      • Walter Wellstone

        I’ve heard about that. It seems their goal is to be as repressed as humanly possible and, in the end, whoever is the most miserable wins. Fucked up indeed.

    Not to worry transgender kids: if you gotta pee in the bush, Betsy DeVos will make sure you’re armed against varmints. Hell, she said during her confirmation hearings she approves of firearms in school, because BEARS!.

  • HarryButtle

    Feeling very stabby, today, and this doesn’t help. Maybe I just need to stay away from the news.

  • Me not sure

    Here’s the DeVos logic chain:
    1.Trans-gender students are often bullied.
    2. Guns are needed in schools to fight off bears.
    3. Bears shit in the woods.
    4. Trans-gender students must also shit in the woods.
    5. Therefore, trans-gender students have a right to be heavily armed.
    6.. Bullying problem solved!

    • Opiwan

      [s]

      I think of it like this:
      1. All things that shit in the woods are bears (other animals merely poop)
      2. T students must now shit in woods
      3. Therefore, T students are bears
      4. Bears are heavily armed
      5. Since T students are bears, they are also heavily armed
      6. T students need no protection, because they are so heavily armed
      7. If T students cannot use their preferred bathrooms, and must shit in the woods, then they are left with no choice but to maul people who anger them like bears would, since we’ve already proven they are bears.
      7a. If they weren’t bears, we wouldn’t make them shit in the woods, so we’re getting what’s coming to us.

      • Me not sure

        SHOOT THE BEAR! SHOOT THE BEAR!

    “Betsy DeVos is fucked up.” Too true.

    In today’s episode of Horrible Bosses, someone puts a strong laxative in Betsy DeVos’ coffee. She begins frantically searching for a bathroom, only to find that they are all locked, being cleaned by the janitor, or otherwise off limits to her. She ends up soiling herself in public while running through her fancy country club and is therefore banned for life.

    • JustDon’tSayCAPSLOCK!!!

      I’d watch that.

    Is a requirement of this administration that you find some way to fuck over at least one non-rich, non-white social group? Because it’s really, really starting to feel like that’s a job requirement…

    It’s at this point I realize just about most places in NorCal have non gendered bathrooms these days.
    No more criming than usual.

  • Zyxomma

    Betsy DeVos could not find her ass with both hands. Sure, put her in charge of education when she’s never set foot in a public school. What could go wrong?

  • Parakeetist

    Fuck her for hassling kids based on their sexuality. Everybody needs to pee.

    • Tosca

      I don’t want to be That Person, but…it’s their gender identity she’s hassling them for, not their sexuality. Sexuality is who you find sexy. Gender identity is whether you consider yourself a boy, girl, neither, a combination, or other. People who are gay but cis (their gender identity matches the one Betsy Devos thinks they should have based on their genitals) are quite happy to use the “right” toilet. Trans people have a gender identity that DOESN’T match their genitals, and this displeases Trumpers (for some reason).

  • TootsStansbury

    It’s as if the Tr*mp administration considers anyone who fails to conform to very narrow parameters of acceptability as less than human.

    • HooverVilles

      …as if…?

    • Mavenmaven

      Whites. Because the non-whites are already in that category according to him.

  • SterWonk

    … it’s open season on transgender kids, just like it’s open season on pretty much everybody who isn’t white, straight, Republican and Christian Christianist these days in Trump’s America.

    FTFY

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Yeah, schools, go ahead and follow Betsy’s directives. Make these kids use the restroom that matches their birth certificate gender. The moment some kid gets attacked in the restroom just for following the rules, you are going to get your asses sued, and we’ll all get out our shocked crayon to color us when Betsy dk’s you.

    Every parent of every kid compromised by this bullshit will be running to the nearest lawyer, and, no matter what Betsy says, you’re still responsible for all the kids’ safety while they’re in your care.

    • Mintie

      It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to the few schools that try to fall in line with Betsy. And by “interesting,” I mean in the faux-Chinese sense of the word.

    • MsBAF

      And yet no one worries about the women and girls that could get attacked in the restroom…I guess they don’t count

      • Tosca

        They count very much – trans women and girls forced to use the men’s restroom will indeed be attacked, and I am very worried about them.

        Oh, you meant the tired old trope of “Trans women are actually just men disguising themselves as women so they can sneak into women’s restrooms and assault women!” No, that doesn’t happen. There are NO recorded instances of a trans woman assaulting another woman in a women’s restroom. Not one. Ever. Anywhere.

        What DOES happen is CIS MEN DISGUISING THEMSELVES as trans women to sneak into women’s restrooms and assault women, because cis men are trash. However, trans women are NOT cis men and not responsible for their trash behaviour. I will not countenance throwing trans women under the bus, and putting them in harm’s way, because of the criminal behaviour of cis men.

        The best solution is to provide non-gendered single-occupant restrooms. That way anyone who feels unsafe in the standard restrooms can lock themselves into solitary splendor. Or you can hold it until you get home.

          First of all there is no such thing as Cis men just men and you are wrong that there have never been any attacks ever..there is lots of data that says otherwise. Secondly there is the fact of privacy that especially young girls should have and not have to feel uncomfortable with transwomen being in their space. You are right it is men that attack both TW and women but women do not attack anyone so they should not be the ones that have to be punished or made to move aside for TW. Take that up with men it is not us but we are having to accommodate everyone else because of it. It is also true that women are attacked way more than transpeople and again the statistics bear that out. Thirdly Transwomen are not women they are transwomen and that is different and will never be the same as women no matter how much they would like to be. Their propensity for violence stays pretty much the same as any man. You can take the hormones and the surgery but you cannot change the DNA.

    I think I liked her better when she was looking for some spotted dog. Or was that spotted dick?

    You know DeVos has spent a lot more time on giving LGBT students a hard time than she has on anything related to actual education.

  • TakingAmes

    Maybe her plan is to create a network of for-profit charter schools targeting specifically transgender students, where they will only have unisex bathrooms. Obviously the government will pay for those vouchers. Wait, no… Maybe she wants to encourage transgender students to homeschool themselves. That’s gotta be it.

    The only reason De Vos got an “F” grade is that they couldn’t give out anything lower.

  • Gino Costa

    No, actually, she tells kids that reality and biology matter more than a fantasy identity.

    • thixotropic jerk

      She can say whatever bigoted fantasy pops into her ugly old hag head she wants but trans kids know their truth and deserve to be treated with love dignity and respect. I hope she has to pee and ends up having to use the worst toilet in Scotland.

    I just ran this story by my retired preschool-teaching small-c conservative once-a-day Catholic mother, and even she’s horrified.

    So, Betsy wants people who look like girls in the boy’s restroom, and vice versa? Huh. Has she thought this through AT ALL?

  • Jesse

    Fuck you, Betsy DeVos… Fuck you right in your pee hole.

    Betsy DeVos is fucked up.

    See, this is why I don’t write for Wonkette — any article I submitted on DeVos would have consisted of that sentence and nothing else, but you give actual evidence and arguments for it. This is why I toss a few Ameros to y’all every month.

    “and human decency”

    nailed it, Obama era lady.

    These fucking people.

  • Tosca

    This shit right here is why 40% of trans people attempt suicide.

    This is fucking murderous. Kids will die because of this bullshit. I mean literally die. Families and classmates will weep at funerals because this bitch is obsessed with whether teenagers have the “right” genitals. And she will smile like Delores Umbridge the whole fucking time.

    May she feel the way these poor kids will feel.

    • Katamount

      And you just know that she’s one of these fundamentalists that think that Christians are attacked on a daily basis. Betsy, hon, try being ostracized from every support network your little trust-fund ass has and then you might just begin to approach to the way that trans kids have to go through their youths.

      Society learned nothing from Leelah Alcorn. Nothing!
