On July 26th, Donald Trump tweeted that transgender soldiers would no longer be allowed to serve in America’s military. On the same day, the Department of Justice (DoJ) unexpectedly took a stance on a case in New York regarding employment discrimination based on sexual orientation. The nation’s civil-rights laws, it said, do not protect people against anti-gay bias in the workplace.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a memo released Thursday [10/5/2017] that rescinds guidance issued under the Obama administration. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 bars workplace discrimination between men and women but does not extend to gender identity, Sessions said. The Justice Department will take that position in “all pending and future matters,” the memo said.
