A memo circulating the White House suggests that President Donald Trump is once again planning to undo an Obama-era policy. The change will alter the way the government has been interfering with the lives of Americans. Not everyone is going to like this big change.
In only two years, President Trump has eliminated much of Barack Obama’s legacy. That’s a very good thing. Former President Obama seemed determined to undermine every last American value and strength. Obama weakened our military until it was unfit to defend our country.
Obama crippled major industries with his disastrous “environmental” policy. He led campaigns against private universities, nearly bankrupting them, so his buddies could profit. He nearly destroyed our healthcare system with Obamacare.
And I don’t have to tell you what he did to our immigration system.
Thankfully, we now have a president that in almost every way has undone Obama’s legacy. The economy is booming. Businesses are eagerly hiring Americans and raising their wages. Obamacare is all but neutered. Immigration is getting brought under control. Our military is the strongest its been in decades.
But there is still so much more damaged from the Obama-era that needs to be repaired. The president of “Hope and Change” brought incredible division to our nation. He pitted Americans against their neighbors. He turned the federal government into a progressive activist group, with his extreme policies and referendums.
One of those policies is about to be overturned, according to a memo from the White House. President Trump is finally going to end the transgender debate with a clear, scientifically-based definition of gender. One that will not be overturned legally.
The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.
A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. The policy prompted fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept. Conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, were incensed. [Source: The New York Times]
Anyone who believes in chromosomes and DNA was also incensed. Obama tried to use the federal government as a weapon to push anti-science propaganda.
Even though only a fraction of a percent of the population “identify” as transgender, Obama wanted to force this idea onto the entire country. His toxic policy was taught in public schools as fact — defying provable science. He wanted bathrooms to be open to anyone, putting our children at great risk.
Obama lowered the standards of common sense and decency, simply to pander to a very small minority. Meanwhile, people with the intelligence to uphold scientific definitions of gender were branded as bigots.
Obama’s support of the transgender movement sparked an ongoing debate that empowered radical groups. It opened the floodgates across our society and culture, welcoming lifestyles and ideals that were not even remotely close to those of most Americans. This radical push by Obama’s White House was one of the biggest examples of how far left the Democrats have gone. And how little they still cared about the concerns and beliefs of most American.
It’s also one of the reasons millions of American flocked to Donald Trump.
This new policy will make very clear definitions of gender, from birth. And it will prevent people from easily changing it.
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…
“Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth,” noted the HHS memo, which reportedly first made the rounds last spring. “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.” [Source: Fox News]
This is pretty important in the effort to protect children. Right now, radical, left-wing parents are subjecting their prepubescent children to drastic hormone therapy and surgical procedures to alter their genders. Children far too young to understand the issue are being forever scarred. They will struggle with this issue for the rest of their lives—because their idiot parents wanted to appear progressive.
Naturally, transgender activists are outraged. They claim the Trump administration is “discriminating” against transgenders. The New York Times claims this will “exclude the population from civil rights protections.” M-kay. How is using science to define gender harming anyone’s civil rights? Men and women are both protected under the law.
Don’t be surprised to see more faked outraged from the liberal media, once this policy is enacted. With midterms around the corner, they will make as much noise as possible to make Trump look bad.
But the fact remains: most Americans support scientifically-defined genders. They will applaud Trump’s move.
