Trump Administration Considers Defining Gender As An Immutable Biological Condition Determined At Birth

The New York Times reports:

The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a government-wide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.

A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. Conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, were incensed.

Now the Department of Health and Human Services is spearheading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government financial assistance, according to a memo obtained by The New York Times. The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times.

  1. “This will ensure we’re not giving Civil Rights to people who don’t deserve them.” Never before have I heard such a chilling statement. Who will be next? The Disabled? The Gays/Lesbians? Straight outta Hitler’s playbook.

    • It does seem we are treading the same path the Germans took in the 1930’s. I think we will see this election what kind of a country the people of this country want to be. If we get a large turn out for the Dems candidates we know the people want a better progressive country with equality and safety nets. If the people do not turn out and the Reps keep control of the government then we know the people want a regressive , restrictive, fearful, angry, and bigoted / racist country. Hugs
