It has passed the House 236-173. I haven't seen the actual text but since it bans "discrimination on the basis of gender identity," does it require any threshold to be met for someone to actually qualify, or does any man who claims to be a woman get to be treated as a woman even without filing any legal paperwork, or undergoing hormone therapy, or surgery? (more of a GQ than GD question)
Here's the text of the bill.
Quote:
GENDER IDENTITY.—The term ‘gender identity’ means the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.
Which doesn't mention any threshold. Well known homophobe Martina Navratilova, as your cite mentions, is not a fan of the bill.
