Trump administration mulls rollback of Obama-era transgender attacks on Christians
FOX NEWS REPORTS TODAY
The Trump administration is considering a possible rollback of Obama-era recognitions and protections that broadened the definition of gender, according to a report Sunday.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is looking into establishing the legal definition of sex under Title IX as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, a memo obtained by the New York Times showed. Title IX is the federal law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government financial assistance.
HHS wants to define gender as determined "on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable," according to the memo. That definition would define someone as either male or female, determined by a person's genitals at birth. It would be legally unchangeable and any dispute about one's sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing.
Eugene Delgaudio president of Public Advocate said: "Thank you President Donald Trump. This is just what was promised in the 2016 election, the strange Obama Administration ordered destruction of Women's sports programs and the forcing of men or teen age boys into women's or girls' bathrooms nationwide was the wedge issue of the 2016 election according to former President Obama himself."

The New York Times conceded: (April 2018)
"One of the most extraordinary things about our current politics-really, one of the most extraordinary developments of recent political history-is the loyal adherence of religious conservatives to Donald Trump. The president won four-fifths of the votes of white evangelical Christians. This was a higher level of support than either Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush, an outspoken evangelical himself, ever received......

NUMBER ONE ISSUE (AND THEY LOST) VOX REPORTED (MAY 26 2016)
"The bathroom issue has turned 2016 into a very important election for LGBTQ rights"
Bathrooms didn't seem like a huge issue just a few months ago, but it now seems like they have turned the 2016 presidential election into a very crucial one for LGBTQ rights.
LGBTQ rights have always been an important aspect of the presidential race, of course. But the recent debate over bathrooms and whether transgender people, who identify with a gender different from the one assigned to them at birth, should be able to use the facilities for their gender identity has elevated these issues.
The critical turning point came on Wednesday, when 11 states filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration in an attempt to halt a federal guidance telling public schools they must let trans students use the bathroom and locker room for their gender identity.
At first, this may seem like just a scuffle between the Obama administration and a few states. But chances are this legal battle will drag on, potentially ending up at the Supreme Court in the next few years. And since the Obama administration won't be around by then, whoever is in charge of the next administration will play a huge role in how this legal battle plays out - and whether there even is a legal battle.
