New York Times – The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by [biological science] . . ., the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of “transgender” people under federal civil rights law.
A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by [biological science] . . . The policy prompted fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept. Conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, were incensed.
