Today’s Thread Topic:
How the Trump-Pence administration has rolled back protections for transgender people.

People who are transgender identify or express their gender differently than their assigned sex at birth.

Some Trump admin bans on protections for transgender people:
—Word‘Transgender’ banned at CDC
—Attempts to ban from military
—Guidance protections in schools
—Claim civil rights law doesn't protect transgender workers
—Attempt to define sex as M/F determined by genitalia at birth
In July 2017, Trump tweeted his plan to ban transgender people from the military stating cost as the reason.

Fact: The military spends 10X more on giving active duty & retirees erections than it spends on healthcare services for transgender troops.
5 courts have blocked Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military. 1/1/2018 transgender people could enlist but months later, transgender recruits are still waiting to serve bc Trump is still trying to ban transgender people from military.

Under @BetsyDeVosED—revoked Obama-era guidance on schools’ obligations to transgender students under Title IX:

—Right to occupy the restroom appropriate for their gender identity
—Sexual harassment & violence protections
—Not investigating civil rights complaints from students

This administration consistently skirts the discrimination laws on transgender rights.

Know your rights

AG Sessions decided the 1964 civil rights law doesn’t protect transgender workers from discrimination stating it doesn’t encompass gender identity.

Title VII prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex & national origin.

One of the Trump/Pence administration's most iniquitous acts of malice to date is their proposal to change the legal definition of gender as just male or female.

This will jeopardize 1.4 million transgender American’s rights.


We’ve all heard their uneducated worldview: there’s only 2 genders.

This is NOT true.

A portion of humans are born with intersex traits, some w/atypical sex development, genitalia or chromosomal ambiguity.

Sex & gender identity goes beyond biology.

There’s a direct correlation between legislative attacks and discrimination&violence against transgender people. They’re more likely to be unemployed, abused & commit suicide.

2018 is already the deadliest on record for transgender in 🇺🇸

It continues to be an ongoing theme: Trump/Pence & Republicans are seemingly obsessed with other people’s genitals, who they have sex with & which bathroom they use.

Absent strong federal protections, transgender rights & lives will continue to be at risk
