(en) anarchist communist group ACG: Trump regime launches new attack on transgender people

Date Thu, 5 Sep 2019 09:36:55 +0300


In a new attack on transgender people, the Department of Justice asked the US Supreme Court on August 16th to review the definition of gender discrimination and to exclude transgender people. At the moment transgender people are protected by Article VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. ---- Last month Aimee Stephens won a case against unfair dismissal. She was sacked in 2013 by a funeral company after she announced her decision to transition to becoming a woman. The judge decided that she had lost her job because her employer had a "stereotypical conception" of her sexual identity. ---- The Trump administration has now hit back with a different reading of Article VII saying that it prohibits discrimination based on "biological sex" of a person.

As a result of the intervention of the Department of Justice the Supreme Court will now have to consider any new cases in this light.
