US District Judge Joseph Leeson on Thursday found that Kate Lynn Blatts gender-dysphoria lawsuit under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should move forward. Leeson found that, while the ADA does not include transgender people as a protected class, gender dysphoria should warrant protection against discrimination in
the workplace.

The federal law (ADA) that protects persons with disabilities from discrimination in the workplace has a clause that excludes transgenders. But Judge Leeson found a way around the clause by saying if a trans-person suffers from gender dysphoria, she DOES have a disability that qualifies for protection from discrimination under the ADA.

This is a good first step in getting job protections for transgenders under federal law.

In test cases like these, organizations that bring suit are very selective in who they put forward to try to bring about reform. They look for the most sympathetic victim they can find and the one with the best set of facts.

Unfortunately wider America does not have a lot of sympathy or empathy for our kind, so although we probably suffer disproportionately in workplace discrimination, we are not the ones usually chosen when it is time to litigate for more rights.

.. I don't foresee a win for her.. . ..
.
. . .here's why...
.
. . . . . the judge is basically wordsplaying... which is fine. But the problem is she's using the word "disability..."
.
.. . . . . .... for the longest time and the authority... the gatekeeper of the definition of disability is the Social Security Administration's domicile... pretty much all states and insurance companies rely on the SSA for guidance if they dont have their own, more comprehensive definition for disability.
.
. . . . . SSA defines disability as: the "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment(s) which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months."
.
. . . . .. . . .. . . . . having a gender dismorphic disorder could be considered as having a legitimate medical condition.... but not to the extent of it causing her to not be able to engage in substantial gainful activity, thus qualified being labeled as disabled or having a disability.

Good argument, but this judge is making a determination in the case before him, not in general. The judge is the judge of this case, not the SSA. The case can set a precedent, for other trans-folk who meet the same standards to qualify as disabled under the ADA before this judge, unless the decision is overturned.

The win may be very narrow, but it is still a win.

. . um.... You're forgetting this judge has to use the official definition of what a disability is... Which is the same ting the SSA uses.
.
. . .. . .in this court and every court in the US... They are required to use the lawful sense of disability for these types of cases that affects the public.

The job of judges is to interpret the law. The meanings they give to the texts are the law. Lawmakers cannot think of everything when they write the laws, and new circumstances and facts in a case require new interpretations.

That is why the US Supreme Court has so much power. They interpret the US Constitution when they make their decisions. The Constitution did not change when they decided same sex marriage is Constitutional. They adopted a new understanding of the text.

Cause most trans DONT consider Gender dysphora a disabilities it would be detrimental to detouring a trans rights maybe case by cases or maybe all in terms of owning rights to bear a firearm to protect themselves nowadays they have laws that a person with mental ill nes which some disabilities fall under are unable to own a permit to firearms etc etc.
Most want the classification of gender dysphora under the case of a medical care physical and mental wellness being condition
The other tends demonize most of the girls who have legitimate gender dysphora

I had not thought of that. I guess every positive comes with its own negative. Two steps forward and one step back.

The Republicans reversed Obama's Executive Order restricting people with mental illnesses from buying guns, and that only applied to mentally ill individuals with a history of violence. Welp, being gay was once listed as a mental illness. Maybe some day gender identity disorder will cease to be.

If lawmakers dislike a judicial interpretation of their law, they can overrule the judge, by amending the law to make clear their intention.
