On June 23rd, the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, we should have been celebrating 50 years of equal opportunities in education and athletics for women and girls. Instead, the Biden Department of Education continued to peddle its woke agenda by proposing a federal rule that redefines “sex” in Title IX policies to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
In other words, the Biden Administration is using the federal rulemaking process to take away those opportunities from women and girls and force the LGBT political agenda in every public school, kindergarten through college.
The irony can’t be missed. President Biden intends to use the very law passed to increase women’s opportunities to instead give those opportunities back to men on its 50th anniversary. So much for 50 years of progress.
If this rule goes into effect, the Department of Education will use the power of the Federal Government to:
- Force girls to share private spaces like showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms with males.
- Force girls to lose sex-specific scholarships to males who identify as female.
- Likely further the LGBT political agenda in public school curriculum and policies.
- Silence girls who express concerns about their privacy and safety, and shut down any opposition to transgender ideology by labeling disagreement as “discrimination.”
- Allow students to file official harassment claims if they are not addressed by their preferred pronouns, even when those do not align with their biological sex.
- And much more!
This rule comes from the same administration that deployed the FBI to investigate your community because parents are standing up and speaking out against gender theory and government mandates at their local school board meetings.
But, there is good news! Your voice is making a difference! The Biden Administration originally hinted that the new Title IX rule would also specifically harm girls’ sports. Instead, the movement to #SaveGirlsSports is sweeping the nation. Starting with just Idaho in 2020, now 18 states have laws to save girls’ sports. States—and female athletes and their parents—are pushing back.
In fact, the Biden Administration explicitly excluded girls’ sports from the proposed rule—demonstrating that they know an end to girls’ sports would not be well received by the public.
