EEOC: transgendered persons are protected class
Catholic World News - April 26, 2012

“Intentional discrimination against a transgender individual because that person is transgender is, by definition, [discrimination] ‘based on ... sex,’” the EEOC ruled.
In the wake of the decision, E. Christian Brugger of the Culture of Life Foundation wrote an analytical essay explaining how Catholic teaching applies to sex-reassignment surgery.
