Trans-Sexual Discrimination

A government employer may not discriminate on the basis of race. A government employer may not discriminate on the basis of sex. But, may a government employer deny a candidate a job because the candidate is a trans-sexual? Julian Sanchez argues that a court should require the Library of Congress to hire Diane Schroer (nee Dave Schroer), who claims she was denied a job because of her decision to become a woman.

If Dave was good enough for the government, so should Diane be. If her supervisor wouldn't have caviled at an employee born a woman presenting herself as one on the job, that ought not to change just because Diane had the misfortune to be born with the wrong set of biological equipment.
