Dallas Transit Authority Finally Stops Running Over Its Trans Employees

After initially refusing a Texas court order to change a transgender employee’s personnel documents, and then suggesting that it would continue discriminating against trans employees to the extend federal law allows it (read: a lot), board members of Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) finally approved a new policy to protect transgender employees from workplace discrimination. It only took them four months. But, what’s this, gay activists there are still unhappy with the final wording of the policy?

    Not only did they refuse the court ordered name change, they went to judge and got her to overturn the trans persons original name change ruling. Which is a gross overstepping of boundaries and going beyond the lenghs of harassing an employee in their personal life decisions.

    They did get the court ordered gender marker change vacated, They did it illegally also with an ex parte communication with the judge
