According to Fox News’s corporate handbook obtained by The Daily Signal, staff at the workplace are allowed to dress and use bathrooms according to their gender identification rather than their biological sex. The handbook was dated January 2021.
Fox’s employee handbook guides transitioning employees through the process, including name changes, use of preferred restrooms, and potential medical treatments. The company encourages education and understanding among coworkers, while also offering assistance to employees in creating a “Workplace Transition Plan” to facilitate their gender change.
The manual also mentions a “Real Life Experience,” in which “individuals who are transitioning their gender will be encouraged or required by their health care practitioner to live full-time in their impending gender role before gender reassignment surgery can be performed.”
Previously, Fox received criticism for a June 2022 segment that praised a child’s gender transformation. Additionally, former employees have criticized the company for its hypocrisy in criticizing “woke companies” while implementing similar policies.
According to Matt Walsh, “Fox’s viewers think that Fox shares their values, and it’s very clear that that’s just not the case. Gender ideology is as far radical Left as you can possibly go. They have embraced radical leftism in its most extreme form.”
The Daily Signal reached out to Fox’s public relations team for comment but received no response.
