The Trump Administration’s Latest Anti-Transgender Action, Explained

10/02/2018 | VOX

President Donald Trump’s administration is working on yet another anti-LGBTQ policy, the New York Times reported over the weekend. Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is considering an interpretation of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans sex discrimination in federally funded schools, that “would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with.” (This would defy the scientific and medical evidence embraced by major organizations like the American Medical Association and American Psychiatric Association.) HHS is the primary agency working on the draft proposal, but other agencies, including the departments of Education, Justice, and Labor, are expected to adopt it as well should the administration move forward with the change.
