Trump Administration Reportedly Trying To Take Transgender Protections ‘Out Of Existence’
This ought to make you SO mad.
According to a new report out in the New York Times, Donald Trump and his administration in the White House are reportedly trying to roll back transgender rights, with the aim of stripping the group’s official recognition by “creating a narrow definition of gender as being only male or female and unchangeable once determined at birth.”
The report, published today in the Times, details how the administration is intent on establishing an extremely narrow legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that has historically prevented discrimination based on sex.
A very narrow definition of sex as only male or female at birth, as Trump’s administration reportedly wants, would roll back much of the transgender rights advances that took place while Barack Obama was President.
It’s still unclear what exactly would unfold (and when/how it’ll happen) should the Trump administration get its wish with this narrow definition, but one thing is clear: they are VERY much intent on rolling back progressive achievements that took place under Obama.
