The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft [memo from the Department of HHS] reviewed by The [New York] Times. Any dispute about one’s sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing." "The move would remove recognition of and protections for transgender people under U.S. civil rights laws promoted by the prior administration of President Barack Obama in health care, schools and the military."

"According to a Pentagon memo about the policy [issued in February of 2018], exceptions to the ban include people who have been 'stable for 36 consecutive months in their biological sex prior to accession,' servicemembers who 'do not require a change of gender' and troops who started serving under the Obama administration's policy prior to the new memo." The memo also states "the Department of Defense concludes that there are substantial risks associated with allowing the accession and retention of individuals with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria and require, or have already undertaken, a course of treatment to change their gender."

Federal District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote in her decision that "there is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effective on the military at all and "in fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects."

The judge also noted "a number of factors — including the sheer breadth of the exclusion ordered by the directives, the unusual circumstances surrounding the President’s announcement of them, the fact that the reasons given for them do not appear to be supported by any facts, and the recent rejection of those reasons by the military itself — strongly suggest that Plaintiffs’ Fifth Amendment claim is meritorious."
