Obama Civil Rights Director: Against American Values To Keep Men Out Of Women’s Bathroom

Legislation that keeps men out of women’s bathrooms is directly contrary to American values, according to assistant attorney general Vanita Gupta, who heads up the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Civil Rights Division.
Gupta made the claim at a forum held on Tuesday by the Washington Council of Lawyers.
U.S. Attorney’s Office in Jackson, Miss.
“Even after the Supreme Court’s landmark gay marriage decision last year in Obergefell v. Hodges that guaranteed all people ‘equal dignity in the eyes of the law,’ we see new efforts to deny LGBTI individuals the respect they deserve and the protection our laws guarantee,” Gupta said.
