美國多間大型企業聯署發公開信 要求特朗普政府回應「收窄性別定義」計劃

據報導,連同蘋果公司、Google、Amazon、Facebook、Microsoft,、Intel和Cisco等,約50家美國的大公司聯署向美國總統特朗普發出公開信,要求特朗普政府回應早前提及的「收窄性別定義」一計劃。

多間公司聯合起草公開信(全文如下),以回應紐約時報曾報導過的「新的定義將使前總統奧巴馬政府以往在跨性別者權益上的成果倒退」。特朗普政府近來的舉動引發全球各地支持跨性別權利的一系列抗議活動。更引發起是次多間大公司聯合要求特朗普政府給予交代。

公開信內文提及:「我們反對通過重新解釋現有法律法規來消除跨性別保護的任何行政和立法努力。」、「我們從根本上反對任何反對任何會侵犯被定義為變性者、性別非二元或雙性人隱私權的政策或法規。」

 

這已經不是第一次有大型企業聯合反對特朗普政府的LGBTQ政策。去年第2月,蘋果公司與Google等大型企業已經反對特朗普政府計劃推翻奧巴馬時代的公立學校跨性別洗手間使用指引。

公開信全文如下:

We, the undersigned businesses, stand with the millions of people in America who identify as transgender, gender nonbinary or intersex, and call for all such people to be treated with the respect and dignity everyone deserves.

We oppose any administrative and legislative efforts to erase transgender protections through reinterpretation of existing laws and regulations. We also fundamentally oppose any policy or regulation that violates the privacy rights of those that identify as transgender, gender nonbinary, or intersex.

In the last two decades, dozens of federal courts have affirmed the rights and identities of transgender people. Cognizant of growing medical and scientific consensus, courts have recognized that policies that force people into a binary gender definition determined by birth anatomy fail to reflect the complex realities of gender identity and human biology.

Recognizing that diversity and inclusion are good for business, and that discrimination imposes enormous productivity costs (and exerts undue burdens), hundreds of companies, including the undersigned, have continued to expand inclusion for transgender people across corporate America.

Currently more than 80 percent of the Fortune 500 have clear gender identity protections; two-thirds have transgender-inclusive health care coverage; hundreds have LGBTQ+ and Allies business resource groups and internal training efforts.

Transgender people are our beloved family members and friends, and our valued team members. What harms transgender people harms our companies.

We call for respect and transparency in policymaking, and for equality under the law for transgender people.
