WASHINGTON 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.
... 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....
The definition is integral to two proposed rules currently under review at the White House: One from the Education Department deals with complaints of sex discrimination at schools and colleges receiving federal financial assistance; the other, from health and human services, deals with health programs and activities that receive federal funds or subsidies. Both regulations are expected to be released this fall, and would then be open for public comment, typically for 60 days.
...Civil rights groups have been meeting with federal officials in recent weeks to argue against the proposed definition....

The left is overdoing the transgender issue.
“....gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth,....” And here we thought it was “assigned” at birth. Who knew? /s
If the dems think this is a winner for them, they’re NUTS. This “transgender” (there’s no such thing) crap drives normal people up a wall.
* One from the Education Department deals with complaints of sex discrimination at schools and colleges receiving federal financial assistance;
* the other, from health and human services, deals with health programs and activities that receive federal funds or subsidies.
The FAR BETTER solution would be to stop all federal "funds and subsidies." Such a leash on FedZilla would end so much of this crapola.
I don’t actually think the Ewwwwwww Yuck, Slime! wants to push this. There have been numerous surveys that show a significant majority of people disapprove of the transgender stuff.
This is not an issue they want to have to defend 3 weeks before an election.
This would be ALMOST too much winning, but I think I can take it!
Stop the madness.
Let’s just ‘define’ them as what they truly are: Mentally Ill.
And with ANY mental illness, they deserve treatment, not encouragement.
Its a mental disorder. It cant definedin or out of existence.
There is no such ting as transgender.
There is, however, mutilated homosexual transvestites.
Just more RAT/LIB/LEFT crap. Scurrying to keep as many of their voting MOB on the plantation.
Gender should be assigned by genitalia and chromosomes at birth.
Yep, they've been overplaying their hand on many issues more than ever, to our benefit.
Best election, best POTUS, evah!
The question comes down to the issue in question: Does said person have or not have a package.
Yes, enough with the normalization of this insanity.
When you gotta go, you gotta go. All this mixed bathroom garbage is just that. Does a porta potty give a damn who uses it? One blue, gray, green hut fits all. Who ever thought this BS up is off their rocker, and its no wonder they voted for Hillary.
Correct. Genitalia actually does not always indicate the sex (use of the word gender is incorrect) of a person. It is the xxx and xy chromosomes that tell the truth, and no surgeon’s knife can change that.
the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.
Habit, state of mind or sexual deviance DOES NOT CREATE A NEW MAN in law. Whatever rights a person has they have at birth. Black skin, for instance is an immutable physical characteristic . A persons belief, idea or obsession CANNOT be held up as LAW. To do so is to make an opposing idea illegal. THAT is un American.
transgender is not a sex, it is a lifestyle
