Thomas More Society’s Thomas Olp supports Trump administration’s stance on gender as ‘innately tied to one’s biological sex’

Breaking news that the Trump administration may be ready to adopt a uniform definition of gender based on biology and grounded in science, was well-received by the Thomas More Society, a national nonprofit law firm. This is of particular relevance in the Thomas More Society’s current cases Students and Parents for Privacy v. United States Department of Education, and Maday v. Township High School District 211. Both cases revolve around school district decisions that allowed a male high school student access to the girls’ locker room in Palatine, Illinois, a northwest Chicago suburb.

Thomas Olp, Vice President and Senior Counsel of the Thomas More Society, issued the following statement:

“Gender is not merely a social construct, but innately tied to one’s biological sex. The definition of sex as male or female is based in anatomy and physiology. If gender had no parameters tied to one’s biological sex, Congress would not bother to implement Title VII and Title IX, and laws promoting female-owned businesses would lose their rationale. At a time when activist groups are promoting gender fluidity, it makes good sense for the federal government to clarify long-held and normative definitions of sex and gender.  Doing so will eliminate confusion, give clarity to service providers, and hopefully lessen the chaos caused by policies that seek to apply practices that disregard both law and science. Such policies do not ensure just and compassionate treatment of all human beings in our society, and tend to sacrifice persons’ reasonable expectations of privacy.”
