Ted Cruz promises to keep boys out of girls' showers if elected president

The whole "transgender" issue hasn't shown up much on the presidential radar, but it did with Ted Cruz recently.  In a radio interview, Cruz said:

... the Obama administration’s support for trans students amounts to “lunacy!”

“Look, these guys are so nutty that the federal government is going after school districts, trying to force them to let boys shower with little girls,” Cruz responded. “Now listen: I’m the father of two daughters, and the idea that the federal government is coming in saying that boys, with all the god-given equipment of boys, can be in the shower room with junior high girls — this is lunacy!”

“And I bet you there are a whole lot of parents — particularly parents of daughters — that are not eager to have the federal government saying, ‘Guess what? Your daughter has to shower with a boy, if he wants to be in there,'” Cruz continued....

“You know, the funny thing is, my 5-year-old knows there’s a difference between boys and girls,” Cruz quipped. “And yet modern Leftists can’t figure that out.”

I think it is fair to say that if Cruz is elected president, he will stop the federal government from putting pressure on schools to permit disguised boys to shower with girls.  Maybe he will speak out more and explain that "transgenderism" is not a civil right, but rather a mental illness, because it's the culture, as much as the law, that needs to be changed.  It's such a fundamental issue, and yet Cruz is the first major candidate to speak about it.

And yet I think this is a winning issue, as we saw in the recent "bathroom referendum" in liberal Houston.  Can you imagine Hillary being forced to defend this policy in a debate?  It's almost as bad as her pledge to bring in 65,000 Syrians.  We need a candidate for president who will press Hillary on these very unpopular positions she has taken.
