Transgender activists rallied in New York City last night after it was revealed that the Trump Administration is trying to redefine “gender.”

A New York Times article on Saturday described a leaked Department of Health and Human Services memo that described an effort to redefine sex in federal law as “a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth.”

Sex would be defined by a person’s birth certificate, with any disputes settled with DNA testing.

The purpose of the redefinition is to deny transgender people protection under federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex.
