Read NOM's Brief to the US Supreme Court

 



Marriage Supporter — I'm pleased to let you know that last Friday the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) filed a critically important legal brief with the US Supreme Court challenging President Obama's authority to impose his dangerous gender ideology policies on children in America's public schools. Obama has illegally issued directives to the public schools to allow biological males into intimate facilities reserved for females, such as showers and bathrooms, risking the privacy and safety of our children and grandchildren.

Read NOM's legal brief here.

The filing of this brief gives us an excellent opportunity to reverse President Obama's policies, preventing him from redefining gender in the same way that he redefined marriage in our nation's policies. If we are successful — and we think there is an excellent chance we will be successful — we can deal a fatal blow to the efforts of liberal politicians and LGBT extremists who wish to impose their insane ideas about gender. A victory before the US Supreme Court would mean that gay and lesbian extremists could redefine gender only through the democratic process, something they simply cannot do because it is such an extreme — and objectively false — position.

But as excited as I am to have the opportunity for NOM to participate in this case, I am also concerned because of the $12,000 it cost to prepare, print and file the brief. We've only raised half of that amount, so we've got a big hole in our budget that urgently must be filled.

Please make an immediate emergency financial contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250 or even $500 or more to help us cover the cost of this critically important undertaking.

We're asking the Supreme Court to take the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. Much of our argument is a purely legal one about the need for the Court to clarify, or reverse, a prior holding that liberal judges are wrongly using to give great deference to anything President Obama's administration wants to do in his quest to remake America. But a critical element of the brief exposes more than two dozen examples of cases where men, many claiming to be transgender, have violated the privacy of women in bathrooms, showers and other intimate areas. These include:

  1. A Seattle man, citing transgender bathroom laws, gained access to a women's locker room at a public recreational center where little girls were changing for swim practice. The man began to undress in front of the girls. He told women who complained that he had a right to be there.

  2. A Toronto man claiming to be transgender was arrested for sexually assaulting several women in a homeless shelter after he gained access to the shelter and its shower area by claiming a female gender identity as "Jessica."

  3. A Virginia man was caught and arrested for peeping on and filming two women and a five-year old child in a women's restroom after receiving entry by dressing as a woman.

  4. A Los Angeles man, dressed as a woman, entered a Macy's department store bathroom and videotaped women under bathroom stalls. Investigators found a video camera in his purse containing hours of video of women using the restroom in the store.

  5. A sex offender wearing fake breasts and a wig was arrested for loitering in a Campbell, CA women's restroom in a shopping center. The man had previously been arrested on charges of child molestation and indecent exposure.

  6. On two occasions, Berkeley, CA police arrested a man who had disguised himself as a woman to get inside a UC Berkeley locker room. Once in the locker room, the man used his cell phone to photograph women.

  7. Last year in Virginia a man in women's clothing entered the women's restroom at a mall and again at a Wal-Mart and used a mirror and camera to take pictures of a mother and her 5-year-old daughter and a 53-year-old woman while they were in neighboring restroom stalls.

President Obama and LGBT extremists want people to think that redefining gender based on "gender identity" is simply about showing respect to "transgender" people. But our brief shows how it is far more than that — it risks the privacy and safety of girls and women, who will have no recourse to resist the presence of biological males in the most intimate of areas.

Help Us Fight Back Against Obama

Now that the brief is before the justices of the US Supreme Court, it's imperative that we cover the thousands of dollars we're in the hole as a result of this fight. I am counting on you to help us meet this expense so that we don't have to cut back any other activity.

Please make an immediate contribution of whatever you can afford — $25, $35, $50, $100, or even $250. Some people will make a sacrifice to give $10, and we appreciate their sacrifice greatly. Other supporters have been blessed with resources and perhaps can consider a larger gift of $500, $1,500 or even $2,500.

Whatever amount is right for you, please act today so that we can cover the budget shortfall created by the opportunity to use this case to stop President Obama's insane, dangerous gender agenda.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
