Supremes close door on Obama’s redefinition of ‘sex’

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday closed the door on an Obama administration agenda bullet point – that of redefining “sex” as used in federal law to include whatever gender a person may feel like on that day.
The fight is over civil rights laws dating back 40 years or more. Barack Obama had issued an ordered that effectively decreed that when Congress adopted Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, its members intended to allow boys into girls’ showers and girls into boys’ facilities if that’s the gender they felt like.
The specific case was over a girl, Gavin Grimm, who insisted on using the boys’ restrooms in the Gloucester school district based on her “gender identity.”
