Mat Staver, chairman of Christian legal group Liberty Council, said the Obama order “imposes the LGBTQ agenda” on the USA and Trump should not continue doing that. As for the term ‘gender identity’, to Mr. Staver’s mind it is too uncertain and fluid to prevent bullying and discrimination. Mr Staver also claimed the protections “open women’s restrooms to men”. Ryan Anderson, a policy researcher for the Conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation, also thinks that Trump was wrong to leave everything as it is now. “Many organisations, including faith based groups, have beliefs about human embodiment that people are male and female – and that females and males are made for each other,” he added. “The federal government shouldn’t penalise those groups when they operate according to their convictions.”
