When Clayton County employee Gerald Bostock participated in a gay recreational softball league, he was fired for “unbecoming” behavior. In 2020, the Supreme Court ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 should cover discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace.

The House Dems’ push for gender-neutral bathrooms has been slammed by Republican lawmakers as ‘economics is in the toilet.’

In its decision, the Supreme Court stated that it was not deciding whether “sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms, and dress codes” violated Title VII.

However, Judge Atchley ruled that the court’s decision should not be applied to sex-segregated bathrooms.

Reuters reports that the Supreme Court in Bostock “explicitly refused to decide whether’sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms, and dress codes’ violate Title VII.”
