Title IX

(FreedomWire.org) – Biden released a proposal for changes to Title IX which includes erasing biological sex from issues of sex discrimination. The proposal would conflate protections for biological sex with gender identity, and see no differentiation between the two.

Title IX, enacted 50 years ago in 1972, was intended to curb sex-based discrimination against women at universities. Fast forward to today’s 50-year anniversary of Title IX and the once-progressive rule has over-corrected into regressive territory.

Women face the greatest inequity risk from the 700-page proposal which would essentially make it a Title IX violation for schools to prohibit biological males from receiving women’s scholarships, participating in women’s activities, and other educational benefits programs. The Department of Education’s proposal “would make clear that preventing someone from participating in school programs and activities consistent with their gender identity would cause harm in violation of Title IX.”

“The regulations… will strengthen protections for LGBTQI+ students who face discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity,” the Department of Education said. 

The proposal even goes as far as stating that “The Department of Education does not construe the term ‘sex’ to necessarily be limited to a single component of an individual’s anatomy or physiology. Further, the Department need not define ‘sex.’

Parents Defending Education, a nonprofit group that empowers parents nationwide, made a statement on the proposal saying, “American families should be deeply concerned by the proposed rewrite of Title IX. From rolling back due process protections to stomping on the First Amendment, to adding ‘sexual orientation and gender identity into a statute that can only be so changed by Congressional action, the Biden Administration has shown that they place the demands of a small group of political activists above the concerns of millions of families across the country.”

Parents Defending Education was not the only one to speak out against Biden’s proposal. Many went to twitter to point out how it would strip the rights of women away.
