On Sunday, The New York Times published a memo that basically explains how the administration will determine whether a person is male or female based on what they are born as. The memo also stated that if there are any disputes about a person's gender, it will be resolved based on genetic testing.

Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth. The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.

Caitlyn. who was previously known as Bruce Jenner,  became one of the most famous faces of the transgender community when she underwent a gender confirmation surgery in 2017. This was two years after revealing to the world that her new identity is Caitlyn. She had previously been open about supporting Trump and even voted for him because she believed his reign as the President will be a positive thing for LGBTQ rights.

Trump has his supporters

Despite the fact that many people disagreed with what this policy represented, there were those who agreed that this was a good idea. They cited instances where it can be unfair for a woman who was born male to compete with other women who were born female. In other words, the change of gender may not automatically change everything about a person. 

Do you think Trump is on the right part with this policy? Or should people see things from Caitlyn point of view?
