11th Circuit: Transgender Discrimination Is Sex-Based Discrimination

snip-------

A Georgia transgender woman has won her appeal that she was illegally fired for planning to make her gender transition. Vandy Beth Glenn had been a legislative editor in the Georgia General Assembly, but her supervisor, now-retired legislative counsel Sewell Brumby, testified that he found the thought of her transition “unsettling,” “unnatural,” and something that others would view as “immoral.” .....

"We conclude that a government agent violates the Equal Protection Clause’s prohibition of sex-based discrimination when he or she fires a transgender or transsexual employee because of his or her gender non-conformity."

-------snip

Milestone ruling for Transgender employment protection.

4. An excellent decision.

I can't imagine how this could be undone. It's so obviously correct.
