Excerpts from this article:

The Trump administration on Friday announced revised federal policy regarding sex discrimination, rolling back an Obama-era rule that had redefined “sex” under federal antidiscrimination statute to include a broad, subjective interpretation of “gender identity.”

…The [Obama] rule expanded sex to include “an individual’s internal sense of gender, which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female.” Entities that fall under federal Title IX statute were forbidden from discriminating against anyone on the basis of that revised definition.

A press release from the Department of Health and Human Services on Friday announced that the government was formally rolling back that re-definition, returning to a strictly objective definition of the word “sex” as determined by biological indicators.

“HHS will enforce [the rule] by returning to the government’s interpretation of sex discrimination according to the plain meaning of the word ‘sex’ as male or female and as determined by biology,” the press release stated. 

In an entry for the federal register, the Trump administration argued that the previous rule “risked masking clinically relevant, and sometimes vitally important, information by requiring providers and insurers to switch from a scientifically valid and biologically based system of tracking sex to one based on subjective self-identification according to gender identity.”

The department noted that the transgender rule had actually been enjoined by a federal court at the end of 2016; the same federal court finally voided the rule entirely in October of 2019. HHS was “finalizing” the rule in its Friday announcement, the department said.

CONSEQUENCES OF OBAMA’S CHANGING TITLE IX DEFINITION OF “SEX” TO “GENDER IDENTITY”

10.26.10 — http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/letters/colleague-201010.pdf  [Title IX as written states that there must not be discrimination against people based upon their race, color, national origin, disability, or sex (i.e., male or female).  In 10.26.10, the Obama administration arbitrarily extrapolated the word “sex” to mean gender identity. It is this misinterpretation by the Obama administration – never voted on by Congress — that has brought about the transgender bathroom debacle.]
