Biden Administration Wants To Expand Title IX Language To Allow Trans In Women's Sports

Title IX was passed in 1972 as a landmark piece of federal legislation that prevented government-funded institutions from denying women the same opportunities men were provided.

The original legislation signed by President Richard Nixon reads:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Now that was written in a time when the government and Americans widely believed you couldn’t just switch genders. Alas, we do not live in those times anymore.

Because we live in a society where our government promotes gender confusion, the provisions meant for women could now be expanded to include transgendered females -- who are really just men. The Biden administration is proposing just that. 

"The proposed regulation would clarify Title IX’s application to such sex-related criteria and the obligation of schools and other recipients of Federal financial assistance from the Department (referred to below as ‘recipients’ or ‘schools’) that adopt or apply such criteria to do so consistent with Title IX’s nondiscrimination mandate,” the Department of Education wrote.

This means that if passed, the legislation would allow for men like Lia Thomas to enter into women’s sports wherever and whenever they want, and that any government-funded school would have to let it happen at the risk of losing its funding.

So basically, an administration that claims to be the biggest supporter of women’s rights wants to pass legislation that would erase women from the picture in a variety of settings. If that isn’t the biggest insult to women, I don’t know what is.

The women's advocacy group ICONS vehemently opposes this idea. They released a statement saying:

“The Biden Administration is denying that sex is a reality for women and girls, legislating intentional discrimination against anyone born female. They are putting a stranglehold on states, schools and administrators while daring them to find an occasion to speak up for girls.”

The move comes as a response to the growing number of conservative-minded states that have passed legislation banning transgenders from participating in women’s sports at a variety of levels, most recently Kansas.
