Washington (AP) — In a move applauded by President Donald Trump’s conservative religious base, his administration on Friday finalized a rule that overturns Obama-era protections for transgender people against sex discrimination in health care.

The Department of Health and Human Services said it will enforce sex discrimination protections “according to the plain meaning of the word ‘sex’ as male or female and as determined by biology.” This rewrites an Obama-era regulation that sought a broader understanding shaped by a person’s internal sense of being male, female, neither or a combination.

LGBTQ groups say explicit protections are needed for people seeking sex-reassignment treatment, and even for transgender people who need care for common illnesses such as diabetes or heart problems.

It's obvious Trump (or at least his handlers) knew this was going to be a dumb move. Why else do it at the very end of the day on a Friday?

At the same time I get it. Trump's down in the polls. Even his precious OANN gives a 50% shot (in Florida.) Tear gassing members of the clergy so he could take a ridiculous photo-op pissed off a lot of people on the Religious Right.

Maybe denying US citizens basic rights will help get those numbers back up.

What's an example of sex discrimination in health care?

Is it a trans woman being offended by a prostate exam or is it actual offences being committed?

Im not sure what I'm supposed to be outraged at.

It is amazing how these dates just keep happening to line up. Revoking this on the anniversary of the Pulse massacre. Restarting his rallies on Juneteenth in Tulsa. Getting named the GOP presidential candidate in Jacksonville on the anniversary of Ax Handle Saturday.

I'm starting to think Trump has put Stephen Miller in charge of his scheduling.

My understanding of it was that it protects a transgender, say formerly male, to not be treated as a male for heart problems, non-sexual diseases, etc.

Because the Doctor isn't going to be able to tell if you are biologically male or not, I guess...

I dunno. My LGBT friends made quite a deal over it, I just didn't understand the concept.

You would think that you would WANT your Doctor to know your medical history, after all.

Thank you for making a new game for me.

Every Biden rally, I'm going to look for something that happened in the last 200 years somewhere around that event and accuse Biden of abusing the memory of the event.

Oh who am I kidding.

Biden doing a rally?

Don't forget Jacksonville Aug 27 Ax Handle Saturday.....

And yeah, it's all Miller. Trump is too dumb about history, Miller feeds most of it to him.

I applaud this. Should be common sense, honestly. There are 2 genders and efforts to make yourself look like the gender you hallucinate yourself to be are in the same vein as breast augmentation, penile enlargement, or a nose job... if you can find the cash you can look like whoever you want, otherwise... no.

He doesn't need one to fluff his fragile ego.

But this thread is about Trump and LGBT antidiscriminatory rights..

This law focused on feels, not science. What you're talking about are God's mulligans... biological errors where there are organs there shouldn't be in place. That's a legitimate, demonstrable medical situation which would already be covered under existing medical discrimination laws.

Horrible thing when your doctor no longer has to be afraid to tell you that you have prostate cancer because you prefer the world to treat you like a woman.

Treating a MALE as a MALE is not discrimination

Anti discrimination bill? Pffft, no it wasn’t.

If I wanted a doctor to treat me as though I was a llama, he would say “no, you’re a human, you get human treatment”.
If I wanted him to treat me as though I was a woman he would say “no, you’re a male, you will be treated as a male”

If that hurt my feelings, then I’d be a CUCK

“Ma’am, you have testicular cancer”

The thread should be focused on a rather stupid law as it was explained to me by members of the LGBT community.

Trump, history and the new fad of tying everything that happened everywhere to a Trump rally was your focus.

Are you really going with "Biden doesn't need to do rallies to run for office?" as cover for "Biden can't stand for 20 minutes, will probably talk to the potted plant again but he's got my vote"?

So be it! Run with that!

MAGA in the throes of political death and relegated to a nightmarish chapter in US history has to be far worse...
