Trump Administration Removes Protections For Transgender Students Regarding Bathrooms
“The Education Department has told BuzzFeed News it won’t investigate or take action on any complaints filed by transgender students who are banned from restrooms that match their gender identity.” The spokesperson for the Department of Education stated “Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity” and “in the case of bathrooms, however, long-standing regulations provide that separating facilities on the basis of sex is not a form of discrimination prohibited by Title IX.”
