On the Basis of Sex

This morning I had an aggressive workout followed by crying. Sometimes I forgot how far we have to go to achieve equality and this morning’s episode of The Daily is a strong reminder. The language the justices use, the focus on bathrooms (not an issue addressed anywhere in this case), the binary construction of gender: Can someone be fired because of their gender identity? “Culturally, the courts seem okay with protecting gay people, but still a little uncomfortable with this concept which seems new to some of the justices: that there are people in the world who are transgender.”
