Abstract

In a recent adjudication, the EEOC concluded that discrimination against a transgendered individual is sex discrimination.

As I will argue in this column, the EEOC has the better of the argument. Its ruling takes an honest, straightforward look at the nature of transgender discrimination and the natural scope of Title VII’s broad prohibition of sex discrimination in employment.
