Boot-Strapping Trans-Discrimination Claims to Sex: Band-Aiding the Discrimination of Transgender People
R.M.A. was discriminated against merely because he identified as a male. He was denied use of basic school facilities that are available to all other boys his age. Under some federal and state laws, R.M.A. would be fully protected from such discrimination. In Missouri, however, transgender individuals are not expressly recognized as a protected class.
