Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) said that he is suing the federal government to prevent transgender women from using the bathroom with girls and then “switching back the next day” to become males again.
During a Thursday morning interview on Fox News, host Brian Kilmeade asked the Attorney General why Texas and 10 other states were suing to suppress transgender rights instead of showing “tolerance for all.”
Paxton argued that President Barack Obama’s administration was trying to change the meaning of Title IX of the Civil Rights Act to include transgender people even though lawmakers in the 1960s never intended to include the group.
“My concerns are about the rule of law and about safety for children,” he insisted. “So this in my opinion is a solution in search of a problem.”
“This opens the door to all kinds of issues with men deciding one day that they want to be women and then switching back the next day,” Paxton added.
