A recent memo by the Health and Human Services Department to other federal agencies in the Trump administration called for adopting a narrow definition of gender that would effectively roll back many legal protections granted to transgender people during the Obama administration.

HHS called on government agencies to adopt a definition of gender that used “a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.” The department said that gender should be defined as simply male or female from birth and be considered immutable, according to a New York Times report.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence,” the memo proposed. Such a definition would sweep away a series of administrative definitions by the Obama administration that extended protected status to transgender people at schools, prisons, and other federally funded institutions.

The proposed change involves rewriting Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination. The Departments of Education, Justice, Health and Human Services, and Labor all enforce sections of the law.

  1. Something like this has been needed for a long time now. It used to be that the number of transgender people was less than 1% of the entire US population, suddenly it is everywhere. We have people saying that their toddlers are transgender, that their kids need to have the ability to use bathrooms and lockerrooms of the gender they think they are. We have people now believing that they have no gender at all. A person that was born male or female will ALWAYS be a male or a female no matter what drugs they take, no matter what surgeries they get there is NO changing the biological gender a person was born to.

    To be transgender has become a dangerous fad. I know this to be true as I have a family member that decided he was a she. He wants to become a she so that he can be a lesbian. There are many teens that have decided they are now transgender because it makes them special and they get special treatment. Parents don’t help, this change needs to happen to save children from this dangerous fad affecting this country.
