Yesterday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that the new administration will leave the issue of transgender rights up to the states.

When asked about anti-trans bathroom bills, Spicer said, “This is a states’ rights issue, and not one for the federal government.”

The Obama administration signed an protecting the rights of trans students nationwide, but Trump’s team dismantled it.

If protection for trans people depends on a state-by-state basis, that will leave individuals in more conservative regions up to the whims of extremist legislatures. So trans people in the Carolinas won’t be able to pee, and trans teens in Texas will have to keep wrestling girls.

Once again, Trump shows that he will not live up to his promise to be the most LGBTQ-friendly Republican ever (even though that’s a very low bar).
