The Pentagon has officially signed a directive that approves President Donald Trump's policy preventing transgenders from joining the military.
Transgenders who join the military after this directive must serve as the gender they were assigned at birth. According to The Hill, the policy goes into effect in 30 days.
This comes after a 5-4 Supreme Court decision to allow the policy. In July 2017, Trump announced he would "not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”
Trump's administration also corrected the definition of gender, by rolling back protections of transgenders under federal civil rights law ordered by the Obama administration.
The Obama administration recognized gender as a choice and not determined by sex at birth. Obama's policy sparked a national issue, over bathrooms, locker rooms, and more. A large portion of America opposed this change, sparking a backlash.
According to The New York Times, The Department of Health and Human Services is going to "spearhead" Title IX. Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against gender in education programs that receive financial assistance from the government.
The Department made it clear that the government agencies are going to use the correct definition of gender as determined "on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.”
The Department says there are two genders, male and female, and it would be determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to the Times.
The Department proposed a memo, reading, "Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth."
the Department continued, "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.”
