White House Opens First ‘Gender Neutral’ Restroom, Urges Ban on Help for Homosexual Youth

The White HouseWASHINGTON — The White House opened its first “gender neutral” restroom on Wednesday, the same day that an executive order took effect prohibiting federal contractors from doing business with those that “discriminate” based on sexuality or gender identity.

The restroom is located in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building near the West Wing of the White House.

“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 and consistent with what is required by the executive order that took effect [Wednesday] for federal contractors,” spokesman Jeff Tiller told reporters in a prepared statement.

Obama Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett also applauded the move in an op-ed that was published this week in the homosexual publication “The Advocate.”

“The president is determined to lead by example. He has hired more openly LGBT Americans to serve in his administration than any other in history,” she wrote. “And we have closely examined our internal policies on everything from benefits, to restroom access, to how we invite people to events, to ensure that everyone who enters this building feels safe and fully respected.”

On Wednesday evening, Jarrett also issued a statement on behalf of the Obama administration, calling for an end to what is called “conversion therapy” for homosexual youth. The statement was in response to a petition that had been posted on the WhiteHouse.gov website.

“As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors,” she wrote. “This administration believes that young people should be valued for who they are, no matter what they look like, where they’re from, the gender with which they identify, or who they love.”

Several states, such as New Jersey and California, have banned the practice, including any form of counseling encouraging teens to resist temptation.

But the parents of a New Jersey teenager filed suit against Republican Gov. Chris Christie in 2013, stating that the law violates their constitutional rights to free speech and freedom of religion. They also asserted that the ban violates the 14th Amendment right to equal protection in that it permits counseling to affirm the homosexual lifestyle, but bars counseling to break free from it.

“[The teen] has a sincerely held religious belief and conviction that homosexuality is wrong and immoral, and he wanted to address that value conflict because his unwanted same-sex attractions and gender confusion are contrary to the fundamental religious values that he holds,” the legal challenge outlined.

A similar lawsuit was filed by Liberty Counsel, a Virginia-based Christian legal organization.

“This bill is so broad that parents would be prohibited from seeking help for their son who developed unwanted same-sex attractions after being molested by the likes of Jerry Sandusky,” founder and chairman Mat Staver stated. “Counselors would only be allowed to affirm these unwanted feelings as good and normal. This is absurd and dangerous. This law would inflict serious damage to children, parents, and counselors.”

The Obama administration has been regarded as the most vocal in American history in regard to its support for homosexuality and transgenderism.

As previously reported, in 1778, General George Washington ordered Lieutenant Frederick Gotthold Enslin to be drummed out of the camp for “attempting to commit sodomy” with a male soldier.

His March 14th proclamation stated, “His Excellency, the Commander in Chief, approves the sentence, and with abhorrence and detestation of such infamous crimes, orders Lieut. Enslin to be drummed out of camp tomorrow morning by all the drummers and fifers in the Army never to return; the drummers and fifers to attend on the Grand Parade at guard mounting for that purpose.”

A number of states also passed sodomy laws under their criminal statutes, banning sexual activity between those of the same gender.

    Obamas White House is a sick disgusting homosexual den of pigs

      So can I assume you don’t want the tour?

    • Gehennah

      Good to know I won’t see you there.

  • Susan Ford Keller

    Please clarify what the White House’s gender-neutral bathroom looks like. Is it a restroom meant for one person at a time with a lock that simply says “Restroom” on the sign? If so, I’m OK with that. Personally, I like privacy in the bathroom without having to hear the noises or smell the odors emanating from others who may be in a stall next to mine. As a parent to a disabled boy, I’d much rather him use a private restroom, too, than have to worry about sending him into the men’s restroom while I wait and worry about him.

    • uzza

      It’s like that; a private restroom just like everybody has at home. It has a sign on the door saying “this room can be used by either gender”, and has a wheelchair symbol on it.
      Pretty hard to get upset about it since these are everywhere now. It’s surprising they hadn’t done this a long time ago,

  • pastoredsmith

    There’s no such thing as “gender neutral.” God created male and female. Anything else is simply a perversion of His Creation. Now comes the hateful atheists…..wait for it….

    • Covered California

      That’s actually not true. Look up intersex. Small in numbers but if one were in front of you what would you say?

      • pastoredsmith

        Really? That is lunacy. There are only two genders / sexes. Male and Female. None other exists. God created it that way. DNA never changes, even if one gets cut on, takes poison therapies, etc. A man is a man and a woman is a woman from conception until they rot.

        • Covered California

          Clearly you didn’t look up intersex.

          • pastoredsmith

            Clearly, you don’t understand the difference between someone who is born with a handicap versus someone born with none. A handicap does not equal gender neutral. Stop mixing the two. They are worlds apart.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            So, just so we’re clear, that’s a “no” on educating yourself about gender non-conformity, right?

          • pastoredsmith

            “Educating?” Really? No, it’s manipulation. It’s falsifying information. It’s dispensing propaganda. “Gender non-conformity?” It appears you failed human anatomy 101. I suggest you retake it.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            What did I say that indicates I “failed” anatomy? I haven’t said anything yet.

  • James Aud

    Oh boy pretty soon I won’t have to go to a strip club just use the women’s bathroom, can save my dollars

    • SFBruce

      Really? I’m no expert, but I’m fairly certain if one walks into the average women’s bathroom, you’re not going to see women doing lap dances in sexy underwear. Any man who wants to see women doing sexually provocative things have so many other (and better) opportunities to do so than to dress up like a woman and hang out in the restroom.

  • dawnrosanne

    I don’t get why it has to say “gender open” on the restroom door. It’s a restroom with a door that locks. I think it’s pretty obvious it can be used by anyone. Why does Obama need to put “Gender Open” on it? I think that answer is pretty obvious. He’s trying to make GLBTQ statement.

    • Gehennah

    Awesome news!

    • The Last Trump

      Yeah. Awesome. (?!)
      Never mind the overflow of illegal immigrants, Russia, Iran or impending financial collapse. Unnecessary bathrooms for people who “believe” themselves to be a gender they’re not are now available! All is well in the bizzaro world of America! What a joke.

      • Parque_Hundido

        “Overflow of illegal immigrants”? Impending financial collapse? Looks like someone needs to lay off the conspiracy theories and learn to enjoy good news when we hear it.

    Gender neutral bathrooms aren’t new. Those that accommodate one person at a time are “gender neutral”. The culture has passed moronic and is under the Delusion for rejecting the Truth. Judgement is coming.

          • Bill

            it’s not denial. I know there is no god

          • Jean-Marie Hendricks

            Prove it!! You’d be the first to accomplish the task of proving a negative. I’d wish you luck; but luck won’t help you!

          • Bill

            you’re the one that needs to prove it not me can you prove Odin or Zeus don’t exist?

          • Jean-Marie Hendricks

            “it’s not denial. I know there is no god”

            You’re the one making the claim with no ability to prove a negative. Sorry, but the one making the claim is the one responsible for establishing the foundations of that claim. Read a little Plato, Descartes, Kant or Hume – they would whole heartily agree. You made the above claim – now begin your establishment of the foundations toward your Justification, Truth, and Belief (JTB). Or do you struggle with philosophical arguments.

            As for the rest of your comment: ” can you prove Odin or Zeus don’t exist?”
            As I stated before, you can’t prove a negative – this is empirically impossible. However, I believe in giving everyone a chance to establish their argument through sound deductive reasoning and JTB.
            Therefore, I await your reply. Have a blessed day, sir.

          • Bill

            gods were simply a way to explain how the world worked before we had a good understanding of it. there is no phenomenon on earth that doesn’t have a scientific explanation. earthquakes aren’t caused by poseidon and thunder isn’t caused zeus or thor.

          • Jean-Marie Hendricks

            While on the surface your argument establishes common sense and intuition; however, intuition is not efficient to establish JTB. Moreover, how do you know these to be truth? Where is ‘your’ justification, truth, and belief? How have you come to believe these things to be truth? How do you establish justification for these things you call truth? And how do you know Poseidon and Zeus or Thor are not causing earthquakes or thunder?
            Thank you for your expedient reply. However, if I don’t respond for a time please forgive me as I am heading to bed. However, I look forward to our discussion tomorrow. Have a wonderful day.

          • Bill

            because I know what caused earthquakes and thunder

            Earthquakes are caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes
            the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two blocks of rock
            or two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little.

            Thunder is caused by lightning. When a
            lightning bolt travels from the cloud to the ground it actually opens up
            a little hole in the air, called a channel. Once then light is gone the
            air collapses back in and creates a sound wave you can porve that gods are invoved iit’s only logical to assume they aren’t

            unless you can prove that gods are involved then it’s only logical to assume they aren’t

    For all pro-gay businesses, you can spend the money to make three bathrooms in every establishment for men/women/other if that is what you want. I would not patronize any business with my family and/or children that has three bathrooms when only two different bathrooms are required for humans to keep their nudity from being displayed to the opposite gender.

    In the real world, there is no compulsion for normal people to join the homosexual religion and assert that ‘other’ actually exists when there has never been any proof of any biological origin for these psychological disorders. There are real men/women who know what they are by simply looking at their genitals, and then there are those who wish they were unicorns, or fairies, or gnomes, or elves or Vulcans (like Spock), or werewolves, or vampires, or whatever, or pretty much anything other than to be a male human or a female human. We cannot accommodate every person who is hateful of their own body, or hateful/fearful of the opposite gender, or any other psychological disorder by attempting to make claims that their disorder is ‘normal’ Instead of a third bathroom, they should just have a doctors office in every establishment to counsel anyone who is confused about which restroom they should use.

    As i see Obama hurting everyone else children without any concern, I make a prayer to g-d that the only children he succeeds in hurting, are his own.

    • Bolvon72

      I’ve been in a lot of public restrooms, I never saw any nudity… maybe you are looking too close?

    • uzza

      Just one question. In your home do you have two separate bathrooms, one for males only and one for females only, or do you just have one bathroom that’s used by both genders?

      • Frank

        In my home i am blessed to have three bathrooms, but in reality, i only need one because in a family setting, there is no need to accomadate a public, and if you invite a public into your home to use the bathroom, you are not going to walk in on them while they are using it to thereby share it with them at the same time.
        It is about communal sharing of facilities in public, and the public only has a need for two bathrooms to separate genders from having to be exposed to nudity of the other gender. Gays have gotten along just fine for as long as i remember with the two bathroom system. I have one question for you, prior to the advent of the three bathroom system, where were gays using the bathroom? They were using the bathroom according to their biological gender, and we never had a problem. The only reason why they are now demanding a third bathroom, is because they are attempting to convice people that they are special when they are not. If they are special for any reason, the reason is because they suffer from a psychosexual psychological disorder which the vast majority of people do not suffer from. In that regards, i see the third bathroom system as a means to accomodate handicapped people. Some people are physically handicapped and need special restroom facilities, and some people are psychologically handicapped and thus have decided that they need special restroom facilities to feel better about their disorder/handicap. If gays admit they are handicapped and suffering from a psychological disorder whereby they fear being placed with the same gender or opposite gender in a semi-nudity setting, they would have a much better argument to facilitate their request for a third bathroom in every establishment. But in reality, they never needed one, and the need is only now becoming necessary for them because they have engaged litigation to try and prove a scientific theory which cannot be proved through litigaiton but can only be proved in a scientific lab, which is the theory that they were ‘born gay’

        • uzza

          LOOK! The Point! There it is, way over there!
          The only place a “three bathroom system” exists is in your mind. The whole country is going to a “one bathroom system” because (they’re expensive and) the reasons you give above, before you get yourself all aroused about the gay.
          *Proven in a scientific lab—guys who get the most worked up about gays most often have homosexual attractions themselves. Just stop fighting it, we’ll all be better off.

    • Parque_Hundido

      I don’t think these businesses are going to miss your patronage.

      • Frank

        I think that businesses will miss the patronage of several billion people who agree with me if they go too far with their attempts to harm heterosexuals

        • Parque_Hundido

          Perhaps you missed the memo: a substantial majority of the U.S. population opposes anti-gay discrimination. In fact, more Americans approve of LGBT than approve of evangelical Christians.

          So no, your patronage will not be missed.

    “help for homosexual youth” meaning a ban on infective and dangerous conversion therapy. bearing false witness is s sin remember.

  • UmustBKiddinMe

    “But the parents of a New Jersey teenager filed suit against Republican Gov. Chris Christie in 2013, stating that the law violates their constitutional rights to free speech and freedom of religion. ”

    How in the world would not allowing licensed therapists to provide therapy that has shown to be ineffective and harmful violate a person’s right of free speech or religion?

    “in that it permits counseling to affirm the homosexual lifestyle, but bars counseling to break free from it.”

    Rubbish. People are still free to seek counseling from anyone other than a licensed therapist. A pastor, for instance.

    ““[The teen] has a sincerely held religious belief and conviction that homosexuality is wrong and immoral, and he wanted to address that value conflict because his unwanted same-sex attractions and gender confusion are contrary to the fundamental religious values that he holds,””

    Then seeking spiritual guidance would serve him best, which he is free to do.

    ““This bill is so broad that parents would be prohibited from seeking help for their son who developed unwanted same-sex attractions after being molested by the likes of Jerry Sandusky,””

    No, it would not. Counseling for sexual abuse is not prohibited by the law. To suggest otherwise is simply a lie.

    ““Counselors would only be allowed to affirm these unwanted feelings as good and normal. This is absurd and dangerous. This law would inflict serious damage to children, parents, and counselors.””

    Another lie.

    I wonder how Staver is able to reconcile is supposed faith in Christianity with lying?

    Can anybody explain to me how homosexuality can be a choice, when somebody out of free will wants to undergo conversion therapy? I think it is contradicting. If it was a choice you didn’t need therapy, because you chose to be homosexual. If you are a child and you choose to be homosexual, the therapy needs to be enforced upon you as it goes against your choice. Basically rubbish.
    Of course homosexuality is not a choice. People are born gay and they die gay. Conversion therapy is nothing more than psychological terror and torture towards young people.
    And it has nothing to do with religious freedom. It is the religion of the parents that conflict with the sexual orientation of their child. If the child is disrespectful to the parents, the parents can’t beat the child to death, claiming religious freedom because the bible tells them to stone their child to death. The child is rightfully protected by the law. Same in this case.
