The fight over civil rights protections for transgender people could prove to be a major test for the Supreme Court, particularly its conservative wing, as justices weigh whether to take up the issue this term.
The court has a request before it to hear a case challenging whether civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in employment extend to transgender workers.
Its a dispute that may have a significant impact on the Trump administrations reported plans to exclude federal protections for transgender people by narrowly defining gender.
The New York Time reported last week that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is leading an effort to write a rule that defines gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, a move that would affect civil rights laws banning gender discrimination in education programs that receive federal funding.
While the pending case before the justices deals with civil rights in the workplace, experts say a Supreme Court ruling could very well affect the administrations planned gender rule.
If the Supreme Court took it and held what the majority of courts are holding -- that sex discrimination includes transgender people -- the administration would be hard pressed to go ahead with that rule, said Diana Flynn, litigation director at Lambda Legal, a group that advocates for LGBT rights.

One saliva swab settles it.
If this were 3 years ago the court would have opened the door wide to all sexual definitions, as they did the Obergfell marriage ruling. Presidential elections are all about judges and generals.
It seems so straight forward, to say that there are two sexes, male and female. .
In this crazy world in which there are 50+ gender identities, so much for just male and female.
“If this were 3 years ago the court would have opened the door wide to all sexual definitions, as they did the Obergfell marriage ruling. Presidential elections are all about judges, generals and genitals!”
Missed a G.
Boys/Girls. That's everybody on earth. So how is it "narrow"?
“XX chromosomes mean you are a woman and XY chromosomes mean you are a male. “
you know that’s just crazy talk to a leftard, right? Then again, i challenged some snowflake a few weeks back about the 50 year old “hunt” for the “gay gene”.
We have traveled to and worked in China (Mainland), Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tailand, Cambodia, Korea, and Russia. We have filed health certificates in each of these. We have never seen either a visa application, health forms, or any other entry/exit documents that required us to declare a “gender.” We have been asked to declare our sex: male or female.
I should like to know if any one reading this has ever been asked to declare a “gender” on any visa or health, or other documents when entering or exiting any foreign country.
The nine special protection classes extended by sex, race, age, disability, color, creed, national origin, religion, or genetic information (added in 2008), apparently doesn’t cover the transgender identity.
What specific special right are transgender’s after?
There are two sexes.
Gender refers to language.
If we mean to fight a culture war, then fight it, and you fight it by rejecting transgenderism and calling it the mental disorder that it is.
So will the SC cucks have enough intestinal fortitude for this fight? Will they bend the knee to the shrieking and wailing of the Satanic Left? Do they care more about their cocktail parties and DC reputations than the Truth?
I’m glad Kennedy is not on the court. He would validate the trans insanity.
You only have a right to your original weenie
Not a new one
Transgenderism is nothing more than a form of fraud. Where played straight, such as claiming a false sex on a legally-binding document, it should be prosecuted.
The argument should start with determining if they have standing as TG is not a sex, it is a mental disorder. Its like saying a schizophrenic needs sex protection. The court could rock the narrative by rejecting to hear the case entirely.
What specific right are they after?The ability to indoctrinate your children as THEY see fit.
When I saw the headline I thought ‘Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are going to duke it out?’.
Which means transgenderism is another leftist lie foisted on the American people in the name of progressivism.
Placing a mask on one’s face is just as effective at changing one’s gender as any medical procedure or any hormonal regimen or any amount of wishful thinking.
XX will always be XX an XY will always be XY.
