Trump Administration Removes Protection on Transgender Bathroom Use in Public Schools - Celebs React

The Trump administration has removed the guidelines that allowed transgender students to use the bathroom in school that matches their gender identity.

These guidelines were put into place during the Obama administration, but under the new administration, they are now putting states in control of their own bathroom policies in schools.

“As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level,” the White House said in a statement, adding that it “paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators.”

Celebs like Ellen Degeneres, Jackie Evancho, and Christina Applegate have taken Twitter to voice their opinions on the news.

    Now ahole kids are goin to bully transgender kids cause this scumbag empowers all the shitty people in the USA. Congrats dummies. I’d rather pee next to anyone but this scumbag non-president. He has neurosyphilus

    Unless you are a rich, straight, white male who is homophobic, racist, and sexist, Trump doesn’t care about you. All he cares about is himself and his millionaire friends. The only reason he ran for president was to lower his taxes so he doesn’t have to pay for anything or anyone. He’s an egotistical, selfish man.

  • LolaLola

    good, sick of this shit. you have a penis, you go to the boys rooms; you have a vagina, you go to the girls room. I believe there are transgender people but it’s not the norm. about 1% of the population and the 99% have rights too.

  • LolaLola

    shut the fuck up. kudos to Trump for upholding the LAWS of this country and not bending to leftist idiots

  • Benny Ehud

    How are they bothering you?

  • Benny Ehud

    He ran because of his ego.

  • Benny Ehud

    That person is telling the truth.

  • Mar

    Lmao. Classy! So funny how you can point out Trump supports or racist, homophobes out of a crowd.

  • LolaLola

    is this proper English? I don’t want my teen/pre teen kid have to go the bathroom with some kid who thinks they aren’t who they are. when you get the operation to change your gender, as in losing the penius or getting one.

  • LolaLola

    I have nothing against gays or real transgender people and, snowflake, I am not a racist so knock off your namecalling. Teens don’t know up from down.

  • LolaLola

    if kids are such assholes, then they will bully these kids no matter what bathroom they use

  • j k

    You have kids? I hope they turn out to be better people than you are.

  • LolaLola

    do not talk to me about class considering the vile disgusting thgs that have been posted aouo

  • Mar

    Hahahaha! If you’re going to criticize someones “proper english,” speak fu.cking proper english! You have no right to tell someone who they are or aren’t. And, most trans people become straight. If they lived as a gay male for example, they transition into a straight woman; being attracted to men either genders. Gender is not the same as sexual orientation. Either way, they will not be attracted to your child if they’re using the same restroom if thats your dumb concern especially with the poor attitude and hate you’re teaching them, I promise you that. And, boys and girls who are gay will be using that restroom. That’s really the only reason I could come up with as to why you’re disgusted by them using the same bathroom as your kid. You lack knowledge and common sense.

  • LolaLola

    do not talk about class considering all lie and vile disgusting things that have been posted about Melania and Barron Trump and Ivanka

  • LolaLola

    ok butercup

  • Mar

    buttercup* Lord help us. Go back to school with your child, please.

  • LolaLola

    do you?

  • Mar

    Lol deflecting blame and trying to justify your actions and words because “well he/she said it! So I can too!” That is very childlike behavior. I suggest when trying to get your point across, you don’t whine about hateful behaviors you are contributing to. It’s hypocritical and makes everything you say less rational. Most accepting teenagers in this new wave of generation know more than you do.

  • LolaLola

    I said nothing about “attraction” and that wasn’t my point. You have no idea who I am and your PC opinion mean nothing to me. You’re a lemming with no mind of your own. Gay people have nothing to do with this

  • LolaLola

    oh please. you must be a dumb lazy millenial

  • LolaLola

    I have the same hope for your kids but you don’t have any

  • Mar

    Lmfao, thank you for proving my point!!

  • Benny Ehud

    Yea, I went back and changed it before you responded, because I ABSOLUTELY knew you were going to say something about it lol

    How are they bothering you? You just said what you don’t want. You didn’t address how they were bothering you.

    Btw, you should check your punctuation before addressing someone else about their English lol

    GO TRUMP GO

    Well that is intelligent

    wheres caitlyn jenner? bahahaa

  • JEN

    After yelling about your rights.. I have to ask where is the rights of the child who is raped in a bathroom by the man who identified at that moment as a female. This issue is a very serious and dangerous problem that cannot be monitored. The trans community has been using their birth rooms so it is not new but really just a cry for voice.

  • JEN

    This is fairy tale based not facts.

    Can anyone read? He is letting the states decide for themselves on this issue. It’s a great idea.

    So why is bad if the states decide for themselves? Isn’t that democracy?

    I always thought that the way they made gay marriage legal in US was not democratic. How can a few judges decide for the whole nation? They should have held a national referendum about it.

    Why do you think it’s unreasonable for the people to use bathroom according to their biological sex and not their gender? If they feel threatened by their biological sex peers then additional bathrooms should be installed as a compromise.

  • Ausangel01

    The Federal Government shouldn’t have to decide everything nor control all aspects of each State. Why are there State and local Governments if everyone leaves all the policies they don’t want to be responsible for up to the President?

    Pres Obama took away the rights of the States by mandating this policy without any regards to what each State thought and wanted. So give the rights back to each State and let’s see what happens.

    The whole debate is forced. The schools could just install additional bathrooms for transgender students. The same way transgender students feel uncomfortable using bathrooms by their biological sex, the cisgender students may feel uncomfortable sharing bathroom with someone who is of different biological sex. Policies like this are unreasonable and show that liberal extremists are not willing to make compromises.

  • Phil the Donahue

    I’m sorry u were abused as a child. Life is really hard when u r abused. By the time I was 16, I was a teacher and actually did know up from down. Were u molested! Or just told u were a piece of garbage. Probably both. That’s rough. Maybe help kids with abuse issues to heal your own. Fragile people are bullies.

  • Phil the Donahue

    People who name call had parents who were really shitty, I’m sorry u had verbal abuse as a kid. U were beat too I bet.

  • Phil the Donahue

    We used to have shared bathrooms in the USA. There’s plenty of bathrooms where u wait and go in next. Who cares about taking a dump, this is dumb.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Uhhuh and orange is the reason our Jewish community is being attacked. Duh. Did ur daddy rape u or was it an uncle. U had it really bad as a kid, huh. That’s too bad. Brain damage happens with abuse, even verbal.
