Texas sued the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, claiming that the EEOC violated federal law by issuing a June guidance document mandating pro-transgender policies regarding bathrooms, dress codes and pronouns.

"States should be able to choose protection of privacy for their employers over subjective views of gender, and this illegal guidance puts many women and children at risk," Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement on the lawsuit, filed Monday. "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."

The Texas GOP sees Haitian migrants in crisis as a political opportunity

  The Texas GOP sees Haitian migrants in crisis as a political opportunity But it’s actually a humanitarian disaster exacerbated by Biden.On Thursday, he said that he had ordered state troopers and the Texas National Guard to “shut down six points of entry along the southern border” at the direction of federal immigration authorities as thousands of Haitian migrants await their turn to enter the US under an international bridge in the city of Del Rio in southwest Texas.

On June 15, 2021, EEOC Chairman Charlotte Burrows issued guidance setting forth what she claimed to be the commission's interpretation of employers' obligations under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The guidance prohibits employers from requiring transgender employees to dress in accordance with the employee's "sex assigned at birth"; allows employers to have sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms or showers but requires them to allow transgender people to use facilities that correspond to their gender identity; and suggests that employers who regularly use the "wrong" pronouns or names for employees may face harassment charges.


Top Immunologist Regrets Voting for Joe Biden After Vaccine Mandate

  Top Immunologist Regrets Voting for Joe Biden After Vaccine Mandate Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, formally of the the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, said he voted for Biden as a "McCain republican."Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, a former assistant professor of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, has argued that Americans who already have antibodies from an infection should not be told to get inoculated.

The lawsuit claims that Burrows and the EEOC twisted a Supreme Court decision to justify this guidance, and it alleges that the guidance violates federal law.

The guidance cited the decision Bostock v. Clayton County (2020), in which the Supreme Court ruled that employers had violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act by firing employees due to their sexual orientation and gender identity. Yet, as the lawsuit notes, the Supreme Court made it clear that Bostock does not apply to contentious issues like bathroom access.

"Under Title VII, too, we do not purport to address bathrooms, locker rooms or anything else of the kind," Justice Neil Gorsuch, wrote. He added that the court was not ruling on "sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms and dress codes."

The lawsuit also claims that "the June 15 Guidance was not approved by a vote of the full Commission and was never published in the Federal Register."

Tough for transgender inclusion and fairness to "co-exist" in sport: UK report

  Tough for transgender inclusion and fairness to The inclusion of transgender people, fairness and safety "cannot co-exist in a single competitive model" for many sports, according to a new report published Thursday. "While our consultation found that there was widespread support for ensuring that sport was a welcoming place for everyone in society, including for transgender people, it also highlighted that there were concerns relating to safety and fairness in relation to transgender inclusion, particularly in female sport" the report added."And that there was no consensus on a single solution as to how this should be addressed.

Furthermore, it claims that the bathroom, dress code and pronoun policies the June 15 guidance aims to prevent "do not discriminate based on gender identity and therefore do not violate Bostock."


In the lawsuit, Paxton alleges that the EEOC guidance violated the Administrative Procedures Act, the First Amendment by compelling employers to use transgender pronouns, the EEOC's own regulations, and the 11th Amendment to the Constitution by bringing a forcible action against states like Texas that oppose these kinds of transgender mandates.

Paxton asks the court to vacate the guidance, declare it unlawful, prevent the EEOC from applying the guidance, and award Texas attorney fees in the case.

If the EEOC applies the guidance, that would harm Texas and the Texas Department of Agriculture, specifically, the lawsuit claims. Texas' agencies employ hundreds of thousands of people, and the TDA employs approximately 615 people. "If any employee dressed as a member of the opposite sex, TDA would consider such conduct to be a violation of its standards," the lawsuit states. TDA also does not mandate use of transgender pronouns.

"The June 15 Guidance has a direct and immediate impact on the day-to-day business of the state, its agencies, and its political subdivisions, including TDA," the lawsuit claims. If the EEOC implements its guidance, the state of Texas and the TDA would face "EEOC investigations, Justice Department enforcement actions, and suits."

"It is my belief that this unlawful – and unconstitutional – guidance brings increased liability to every employer, including the state of Texas," TDA Commissioner Sid Miller said in a statement. "In our constitutional republic, states have the sovereign right to enact their own laws and regulations related to matters such as bathroom facilities; and this is an extreme and ridiculous overreach by the Biden administration."

The EEOC declined to comment on the litigation and the Department of Justice did not respond to Fox News' request for comment by press time.

At the United Nations, Biden is still trying to convince the world America is back .
But the test isn’t whether America is back — it’s whether it can help build the world Biden says it wants to build.
