Breaking News Today: ---The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth. ---It’s the most drastic move yet in a government effort to roll back recognition of transgender people under federal civil rights law Full story, Via NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/21/...tion=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage ~ I can't say I am one bit startled, but I am very concerned and deeply worried about the Anti LGBT stance of Trump and the Republicans. And, there's measures afoot that would allow health care providers to refuse service to LGBT people on 'religious grounds. With Kavanaugh on the bench, this is even more deeply troubling. I hope this is a reminder for folks to get out, and vote the Republicans out, before any more damage is done. I recall this thread, prior to the election, and there was a lot of, "Oh, I don't think Trump will do anything bad to us' remarks, but I always thought it was pretty obvious that he'd kiss the butts of the far right base that elected him, as he is like a child, who gloats over whatever praise he gets. And, this is an obvious ploy to get as many of the far right out, ahead of the election. But moreover, it is deeply disturbing, and a sign that the country is heading down a troubling, even dangerous path.
