Trump is defending women's rights against male transgender ideologists

Women's rights activists acknowledge Donald Trump's helping protect their rights from male transgender activists trying to destroy what they've worked hard at:
President Donald Trump is defending all women from legal and cultural erasure by the transgender lobby, say medical and legal experts.

“This is the irony … he is the U.S. women’s rights champion” because he is preventing men from inserting themselves into the legal and cultural definition of women, said Dr. Michelle Cretella, the executive director of the American College of Pediatricians.

“It is true … Yes, oh my God,” she said as she laughed at the irony.

“What Transgenderism requires is that [the term] ‘gender identity’ replace ‘sex’ in the law,” Cretella told Breitbart News. If that happens, then men who say they have a female “gender identity” will be legally defined by the federal government as women, and “we can longer distinguish legally between males and females … [because we] have just eliminated the [biology-based] legal definition of women,” she said.

“That is female erasure by definition,” she said.
And you know what that sounds like? Similar to what ultra-Orthodox extremists, in Israel and elsewhere, are trying to do - censor images of women, among other horrific forms of discrimination that only harm women. At this point, I wouldn't be shocked if the Satmar/Neturei Karta clans wound up forming an alliance with transgender activists if they saw an advantage in it.
Transgender activists “are trying to erase the male and female [sexes] and turn [society] into a mishmash of 50 or 93 [gender] whatevers,” said Dr. Jane Orient, the executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Their political goal is difficult to appreciate, she said, because “it is hard to think about things that are really crazy.”

Trump hinted at this larger political fight on Monday when he was asked about his agency’s proposal to document each person’s sex by their biology, not by their declared “Gender Identity,” which was the policy pushed by President Barack Obama. Officials need to define “sex” because federal laws bar discrimination based on sex.

An Oct. 21 New York Times report said Trump’s officials have drafted a memo which defines a person’s legal sex as “a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth.”

“You know what I’m doing? I’m protecting everybody,” President Donald Trump said October 22. “We have a lot of different concepts right now. They have a lot of different things happening with respect to transgender right now.”

On October 24, Trump’s Department of Justice asked the Supreme court to strike down a court decision which said laws against sexual discrimination must be extended to include discrimination against people who declare an opposite-sex “Gender Identity.” The department said “the court of appeals’ conclusion that gender-identity discrimination categorically constitutes sex discrimination under Title VII is incorrect … the ordinary meaning of “sex” does not refer to gender identity.”

Trump’s deputies are also pushing the United Nations to drop the use of “gender.” For example, officials prefer that the phrase “violence against women” be used in U.N. documents instead of the open-ended “gender-based violence” terminology.
The Trump administration's doing the right thing. Women have come a long way to achieve valid statuses in many trades. Men shouldn't be back-dooring their way in and trying to undo what women have worked so hard to accomplish. That's just sexism taking a new guise, and we must have the courage to make sure it can be prevented.
