Obama Administration Battles Republicans Over Who Is More Sex-Obsessed

by Rob Smith May 18, 2016

FILE - MAY 30, 2014: White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest will succeed outgoing White House Press Secretary Jay Carney in an announcement by U.S. President Barack Obama May 30, 2014. WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 29: White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest answers questions during the daily media briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House August 29, 2013 in Washington, DC.

The White House has just thrown some deep shade in response to a Wall Street Journal op-ed that suggests that the administration’s recent decision directing schools to allow trans kids to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity is rooted in a “preoccupation with sex.”

The Washington Times was on hand to get the response from White House press secretary Josh Earnest and, well, it was a read for the ages:

“It’s Republicans in the Congress that have created a special congressional committee to take a look at Planned Parenthood,” Mr. Earnest said. “It’s Republicans who have sued the administration over the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, including as it relates to women being able to get access to their birth control.”

He said the editorial’s accusation was “curious” and didn’t stand up to scrutiny.

Repeat after us: sexuality and gender identity are two different things.

We’ll be glad when people (finally) get the memo, and we’re going to have to side with Earnest on this one.

It’s laughable that the party that has spent the better part of 30+ years trying to police women’s bodies accuses the Obama Administration of being sex-obsessed for attempting to help trans kids be themselves.

But then again, this is the kind of stupidity we’ve come to expect from the GOP, where their actions are constantly inconsistent with what they claim to believe.

Earnest has their number, as does anyone who’s paying attention this election year.
