Obama has made a symbolic gesture in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) agenda when it was announced the White House has opened a “gender-neutral” restroom in the Eisenhower executive office building.
“The White House allows staff and guests to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity, which is in keeping with the administration’s existing legal guidance on this issue,” White House spokesman Jeff Tiller said.
The move is part of a wider effort to support the LGBT agenda. On Wednesday Obama signed an unconstitutional executive order banning companies that do business with the federal government from discriminating against LGBT staff.
Obama has also demanded an end to psychiatric conversion therapies designed to correct the sexual orientation of gay, lesbian and transgender youth.
States Outlaw Transgender Access to Restrooms
Obama’s executive order arrives as a number of states have moved to prevent transgender people from using restrooms based on their claimed sexuality.
Legislation in Florida outlaws the use by transgenders of bathrooms, locker rooms and other sex-segregated facilities except those designated for their gender at birth.
Transgender activists have criticized similar laws introduced in Kentucky, Missouri and Texas.
The activists say the laws are discriminatory and have accused lawmakers of “attacking the dignity and humanity of transgender and gender non-conforming people,” The Guardian reports.
