In light of reports that Trump, at Attorney General Jeff Sessions's urging and with the allegedly reluctant approval of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will roll back President Obama's executive order stating that trans kids should be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice in schools, NEA President Lily Eskelsen García has issued the following statement:
Every student matters, and every student has the right to feel safe, welcomed, and valued in our public schools. This is our legal, ethical and moral obligation. The Trump administration’s plans to reverse protections for transgender students by rescinding the Title IX guidance, is dangerous, ill-advised, and unnecessary.
We reject this discriminatory plan because it is a drastic departure from our core values. We don’t teach hate, we do not tell people how to pray, and we do not discriminate against people based on their religion, gender, or identity. Period.
As the Trump administration threatens our students and our values, we will double-down on our efforts to protect our most vulnerable citizens, including our LGBTQ students and members. We urge more states, school districts, and schools to adopt protections for transgender students. We owe to our students because they need to see us take a bold stand against discrimination whatever form it takes.
Via The New York Times: Trump's anti-trans order (he will rescind school protections for trans students) is coming — and it's only happening because he and Jeff Sessions insisted that Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos sign off on it.
Somewhat surprisingly, ultra-religious DeVos was reportedly uncomfortable with the aggressive stripping of such recently bestowed rights, but Sessions insisted and persuaded Trump, meaning DeVos would either have to resign or cave.

Via ExtraTV: Retired soccer star Abby Wambach, a two-time gold medalist, has announced she is engaged to Glennon Doyle Melton, a popular Christian mommy blogger.
The two had debuted as a couple in November, just a few months after Melton's marriage (to a man) and Wambach's own marriage (to a woman) had both ended.
With a sweet black-and-white image of their ring-adorned hands, Melton posted, Abby and I decided to hold hands forever. First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach.”
The announcement came days after an especially lovey-dovey post showing the women nuzzling:
In spite of her Christian identity, Melton has long been a gay-marriage advocate, as well as an outspoken critic of Not-My-President Trump's.
