On the whole, I agree wholeheartedly that more needs to be done for transgender rights. However, another point I have some serious concerns about is:(Original post by NY Times)
The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
And actually passed?
