Many reports claim that 21 House Republicans support the transgender activist group to make sexual orientation and gender identity a federally protected class.
But, the controversies in the last years about the transgender movement and the House Republicans are giving more power to this ideology.

Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah sponsored the FFAA in 2019, an all-Republican bill that would make sexual orientation and gender identity a fed-protected class in exchange for a particular right to discriminat3e carve-outs for dissident religious organizations.
These are the Republicans who supported transgender to be a federally protected class:
- Fred Upton (Mich.)
- Elise Stefanik (N.Y.)
- John Curtis (Utah)
- Mark Amodei (Nev.)
- Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.)
- Adam Kinzinger (Ill.)
- Andrew Garbarino (N.Y.)
- Blake Moore (Utah)
- Burgess Owens (Utah)
- Carlos Gimenez (Fla.)
- Chris Jacobs (N.Y.)
- Claudia Tenney (N.Y.)
- Jeff Van Drew (N.J.)
- Jenniffer González-Colón (P.R.)
- Maria Salazar (Fla.)
- Mario Díaz-Balart (Fla.)
- Mike Simpson (Idaho)
- Nicole Malliotakis (N.Y.)
- Steve Stivers (Ohio)
- Tom Reed (N.Y.)
When the Republicans revived FFAA, supporters stated that it achieved a compromise among religious liberty and established LGBT Americans; anti-discrimination protection.
Right supporters say that the measure represents a conservative alternative to the Equality Act, another more extreme Dems initiative that makes sexual orientation and gender identity a US civil-rights law without any religious-liberty safeguards that the FFAA provides.
Many problems appeared linked to lending any legitimacy to the gender identity crowd. One problem is that Republicans should not be giving a proverbial inch to.
For example, the state law in California, SB 132, allows men who feel like women to be in women’s prison.
It was a shock to see that a female inmate would become pregnant very shortly after the implementation of the practice in California.
The incident that garnered national attention out of Loudoun Country, Virginia, where the father of the raped girl was arrested because he said that a boy wearing a skirt raped her daughter, is one example of the problems emerging from this decision.
