Skip to comments.‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration (NY Times uses quotes)
Posted on 10/21/2018 1:33:11 PM PDT by NoLibZone
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 governmentwide 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 individuals choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. The policy prompted fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept. 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 department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable. The agencys 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. Any dispute about ones sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing.

Biological Science tells us there is but two genders.
considering narrowly defining gender....
We need to stop NARROWLY DEFINING AGE TOO!!!
My age is non ####ing binary!!!!!!!!!
Whatever the #### that means :)
According to the failing NYT fake men and fake women are real.
Maybe that guy winning the women’s bicycle race got their attention.
I thought sex was determined by chromosomes - isnt that settled science ?
Yup. Liberals however insist gender is socially determined.
Come on, enough already, they are psychologically disturbed cross dressers in need of mental health treatment.
A few mutations & maladies aside, one is either XX or XY.
Since we don’t care what one does with whom behind bedroom doors, mutilating parts for such purposes isn’t the public’s business.
Since there ARE public matters involving XX/XY, the notion of mutilations trumping chromosomes in law is absurd.
You can change your phenotype but not the sex genes you are born with.
Liberals cant change biological reality. They can only deny it.
We are talking about psychosis level mental illness. These people are very sick and need treatment ,not disfiguring surgery.
Yes, the NY Slimes reporters and all media liars need to seek psychological treatment.
But we should also consider the mental condition of the “transgenders” themselves.
If the alternative is jail time and fines like Canada is doing for using the wrong pronoun, I’m in favor. I could be more flexible on the issue if the Left could be less fascist.
These sick freaks just keep coming up with their own stupid ass fantasy gender...
Oh please. One Obama district judge will stop this cold, and Sessions will whine about it...but OBEY.
The Progs pontificate to the deplorables that while there are only 2 “sexes” there are many “genders”. This is another redefinition of words and their meanings. Most languages have 2 genders, masculine and feminine, and a”neuter gender”. So if a mentally ill person isn’t male or female, they are claiming to be “neuters”.
