Under New USDA Policy, Organizations Receiving Money for Federal Food Programs, Must Embrace Transgenderism

In an announcement that was made in May, the USDA “will interpret the prohibition on discrimination based on sex found in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and in the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program (7 USC § 2011 et seq.), to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Under the leadership of the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA and FNS are issuing this interpretation to help ensure its programs are open, accessible and help promote food and nutrition security, regardless of demographics.”

“This action is in line with President Biden’s Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation, and is consistent with the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, in which the Court held that the prohibition on sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 extends to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

“It seems to be playing politics with feeding poor kids, which is really unfortunate,” John Elcesser, executive director of the Indiana Non-Public Education Association, said via phone amid weeks of attempting to sort out these new demands with government officials on behalf of private schools in his state. “Because if a school feels like they cannot participate because it’s in conflict with their mission or values, if a religious exemption is not granted, you’re taking away a program that’s feeding low-income kids.”

As detailed by the publication, the National School Lunch Program fed nearly 30 million kids every school day in around 100,000 public and private schools, and residential care facilities. 

Following the implementation of this new policy, establishments that accept food stamps or other federal food funding are required to allow men into women’s private spaces, including showers and sleeping areas. 

Additionally, these organizations are to provide training for employees and staff to not “misgender” anyone and use the pronouns of their choice. These organizations are also required to allow male staff to dress as women while working.
