Attorney General Loretta Lynch 'Bout To Have To Smack A Bunch More States Upside Their Heads
For real, her face is going to get stuck like this.
Oh goodness, did you think the rest of the country was going to take a cue from how Barack Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are in the process of kicking failed state North Carolina in its asshole over its insane, transphobic HB 2 law? Did you think they would think, "Well shoot! North Carolina was already gettin' skullfucked by big bidness, and now the Obama administration is up its pooterhole pokin' around, so we guess we'll let trans kids go potty"?
You were wrong. Ten more states, plus school districts in Arizona, are taking a cue all right, but instead of learning a lesson and being nice and Christian about things, they've decided to say "ME TOO, I AM A IDIOT TOO!" and sue the Obama adminstration together. And surprise, the Camp Moron known as Texas is leading the way:
Nine other states and three individual school districts have joined the federal lawsuit, according to the lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas and obtained by CNN. Joining Texas are Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Maine, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia. Two school districts in Arizona, one school district in Texas and Maine Gov. Paul LePage are also listed as plaintiffs.
Congrats, all y'all. Your leaders are fucking morons.

This was TYRANNY! and GAY AGENDA! and OUR WIVES AND DAUGHTERS! and lots of other ALL CAPS! things too.
[wonkbar]<a href="http://wonkette.com/601602/attorney-general-loretta-lynch-so-excited-about-kicking-north-carolina-in-the-ass"></a>[/wonkbar]We could go over the lawsuit with a fine-toothed comb, but we don't want to, because it's the same old bullshit. The Obama administration, Justice Department, and, increasingly, the courts, have agreed that discriminating against trans folks is, BY DEFINITION, discriminating based on gender, and therefore already illegal under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and in A.G. Lynch's latest interpretation, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
These states don't LIKE that, GRRRR and HRMPH! They want to be able to continue discriminating against the icky people who make them feel gross in the wee-wee parts of their brains, and they want to keep receiving federal funding for it -- funding they receive UNDER THE VERY LAWS they're in violation of!
[wonkbar]<a href="http://wonkette.com/602071/aw-look-oklahoma-is-impeaching-president-obama-how-adorable"></a>[/wonkbar]So Oklahoma (which is trying to impeach the president over this, #giggles) and Tennessee (which tried to pass a trans-hatin' law but failed, because the Tennessee legislature is full of failures) and ALL THESE OTHER STATES are now coming together to say, "Please Loretta Lynch, kick OUR asses too, just like you're going to do to North Carolina!"
Little entitled fucking brats, that's what they are.
