Federal Judge Blocks President Obama's Move To Make All Public School Bathrooms Transgender-Friendly

no title

Way to represent, Texas…

As you probably remember, North Carolina became the laughingstock of the United States earlier this year when it tried to implement a series of bigoted bathroom bills aimed at the transgender community.

While most Americans condemned N.C. for its treatment of its LGBT citizens, we're sad to say yet another state is currently discriminating against trans individuals.

Apparently, President Barack Obama issued a ruling back in May that would make it so every public school had to allow its students to use the bathroom and locker room that matched with their gender identity.

However, Texas Judge Reed O'Connor took it upon himself to block Obama's move late Sunday evening, and we're hearing 13 states have now banded together to sue the Education and Justice Departments over their trans-friendly law.

Basically, as it stands now, public schools

This doesn't make her initial post any better, but at least she owned up to it…

Mischa Barton has been getting the worst kind of attention this week after she posted a tasteless, tacky photo showing her "solidarity" with those killed by police officers in light of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Barton, as you remember, posted a message about two black men being gunned down by police officers in suspicious circumstances accompanied by a photo of herself in a bikini while aboard a yacht, pretty much proving her out-of-touch attitude and defining privilege.

Barton immediately deleted that initial post, but the Internet always finds a way to remember — and the wrath of social media came down hard on her almost immediately for her out-of-touch message.

Thankfully, now she's proving to be receptive and sensitive, publicly apologizing for the post and her actions in regards to the two shootings.

Very early Friday morning, Barton posted a string of messages to her Twitter account (below) about the Sterling and Castile tragedies, as well as her response to criticism:
