[Last night], Justice Samuel Alito had harsh words about the 2020 opinion, Bostock v. Clayton County, that said the Civil Rights Act of 1964 - which prohibits sex-based discrimination - extends to gay and transgender workers. "It is inconceivable that either Congress or voters in 1964 understood discrimination because of sex to mean discrimination because of sexual orientation, much less gender identity," Alito said. "If Title VII had been understood at that time to mean what Bostock held it to mean, the prohibition on discrimination because of sex would never have been enacted. In fact, it might not have gotten a single vote in Congress."
