Now, Trump is reportedly planning to "narrowly defin [e] gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth", in the administration's most extreme effort to diminish protections for transgender Americans yet. More trans people will be assaulted and murdered.
Through key victories like Whitaker v. Kenosha Unified School District and Macy v. Holder, courts and government agencies have made clear that transgender and gender nonconforming people are protected from discrimination under federal civil rights laws and the U.S. Constitution.
The Times report was based on an internal department memo that proposed narrowing the definition of gender under Title IX, the 1972 federal law that bans gender discrimination at educational institutions that receive federal funding.
Such an interpretation would reverse the expansion of transgender rights that took place under the previous administration of President Barack Obama.

The Saudi government said it had fired five top officials and arrested 18 other Saudis as a result of the initial investigation . Saudi authorities said 18 Saudi suspects were in custody for his slaying and intelligence officials had been fired.
A month after President Trump took office, his administration withdrew the guidance, claiming that it didn't "contain extensive legal analysis or explain how the position is consistent with the express language of Title IX, nor did they undergo any formal public process".
"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".
Under the proposal leaked to the Times, disputes about someone's gender could be clarified with genetic testing, but Dr. Amy Weimer, a primary care physician and the founder of UCLA's Gender Health Program, questioned the accuracy of a test like that, noting that gender is affected by a number of factors other than DNA. Many civil rights groups have pointed to other court rulings that said bias against transgender people represented discrimination under Title IX and other laws.
There are 1.4 million Americans who recognize themselves transgender, according to the Times.
This is an attack on the very lives and existence of transgender people.

"Transgender' Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration".
The injunction prohibits HHS's OCR from enforcing some of Obamacare's requirements as they pertain to persons who claim to be of a gender that is incompatible with their biological sex.
Protestors already began gathering in New York's Washington Square Park on Sunday night, and a rally is planned for today outside the White House.
The Trump administration has previously tried to roll back transgender recognition in areas such as the military and in schools - but it has not commented on the latest report. "Although it is hard for anything the current Departments of Justice, Education, or Health and Human Services do or say on LGBTQ issues to surprise me anymore, this manages to, and it is appalling".
