Texas is taking President Joe Biden to court to stop the federal government from institutionalizing the transgender delusion with gender-neutral bathrooms and mandatory “preferred gender pronouns” in the workplace.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) vowed to stop the “radical attempt at social change” being pushed with new policies from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Washington Examiner reported.
Texas sues Biden
In June, the EEOC released new “guidance” stating that transgender individuals must be allowed to use bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers of their choice at work, and that “misgendering” people is now “harassment.”
The radical policy was formed in response to the Supreme Court’s disastrously misguided ruling in Bostock v. Clayton in June 2020, which expanded the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include gays and transgenders as protected classes under Title VII.
On Monday, Paxton sued the EEOC over its “extreme federal overreach.” He said the guidance forces employers to cater to the “subjective gender identities of their employees” and may place “women and children at risk” by allowing gender-confused men into women’s bathrooms and other private spaces.
The policy “increases the scope of liability for all employers” and burdens Texas with enforcing “radical….social change.”
“If the Biden Administration thinks they can force states to comply with their political agenda, my office will fight against their radical attempt at social change. These backdoor attempts to force businesses, including the State of Texas, to align with their beliefs is unacceptable,” Paxton said.
This comes after 20 other Republican states, according to NBC News, filed challenges to the EEOC as well as the Department of Education, which has adopted a policy to promote the rights of so-called “trans youth,” a newfangled term for minors who believe they were born in the wrong body, to participate in sports with the opposite sex.
Paxton said the EEOC took liberties with the Supreme Court’s already insanely broad decision, which did not address the issue of bathroom use.
He maintains that the EEOC is violating not just Title VII as interpreted by the court (which already departed from the clear intent of the law, as Justice Alito righteously argued at the time,) but the First Amendment, the 11th Amendment, and the Administrative Procedure Act.
“Once again I’m suing The Biden Administration,” Paxton tweeted.
Essentially, the Biden administration is institutionalizing delusion and penalizing those who stand in the way. Good on Texas for standing up for reality.
