Trump considers defining gender as immutable at birth. What does this mean for transgender people?

Hosted by

The Trump administration is reportedly weighing plans to tighten the definition of “gender.” The New York Times obtained a memo that says a person’s legal gender should be set at birth, and it shouldn’t be changed unless genetic testing shows the assigned gender was wrong. The move would roll back legal protections transgender people gained under the Obama administration.
