Thread: Trump Administration Proposes Rollback of Transgender Rights

    Thumbs up Trump Administration Proposes Rollback of Transgender Rights

    A formal proposal from the Trump administration Friday would roll back Obama-era protections for transgender people, which LGBT advocates warn could prompt health care providers to discriminate against transgender and gender-non-conforming people.
    Roger Severino, the director of the Department of Health and Human Services, said the proposal would remove “gender identity” as a factor in laws prohibiting health care providers from discriminating against patients.

    The rollback is a reversal of a provision in the 2016 Affordable Care Act, in which the Obama administration determined that laws banning sex discrimination in health care would also apply to transgender patients. It explicitly prohibited discrimination based on “gender identity,” which it defined as an “internal sense of gender, which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female, and which may be different from an individual’s sex assigned at birth.”
    The Trump administration’s proposal, however, would eliminate this language, which many LGBT advocates claim could make transgender patients more vulnerable to discriminatory treatment from health care providers. Such treatment is not uncommon, as evidenced by a case last year in which a CVS pharmacist refused to fill a transgender woman’s prescription for hormone therapy.

    This is going to be a $#@! storm. But probably good strategy nonetheless.

    This is so $#@!ed. A trans person or trans advocate or gender studies major, will be the first to tell you that sex and gender identity are not the same thing. Therefore when the law specifically uses the term "sex", it does not mean gender identity! If you want it to include gender identity, you have to pass a new law!
