Tennessee Leads 20-State Lawsuit Challenging LGBTQ Directives

Attorneys General from 20 states have filed a lawsuit that seeks to call a halt to new directives from the Biden Administration that would extend sex discrimination protections to LGBTQ people covering a range of issues such as transgender girls being allowed to compete in school sporting contests to the use of school and workplace bathrooms in alignment with an individual's gender identity.

They are arguing that in extending the sex discriminations protections to transgender individuals, the guidance is threatening women's sports, and employee/student privacy. The lawsuit claims that there has been a misinterpretation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protecting employees against discrimination because they are gay or transgender. The plaintiffs state that the act does not specifically cover issues such as shared locker rooms, showers, bathrooms, and sporting events, and these need to be addressed separately to ensure everyone is protected equally.
