Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” They protect women, not just from exclusion in certain elements of academia and extracurriculars, but also from potential harassment from members of the opposite sex by preserving private spaces according to each sex. After all, providing separate volleyball teams but shared locker rooms and showers would hardly be considered equivalent features of this accommodation.
With Title IX protections, women’s right to compete on an even playing field with members of their own sex, along with the right to privacy from prying eyes and wandering hands in the privacy of separate facilities, such as locker rooms and bathrooms, were covered under the law.
Now 50 years later, those protections that so many fought for are being actively destroyed by the radical Left.
According to President Joe Biden’s Executive Order, the interpretation of Title IX has expanded to include, “…discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.” While the order is touted as a protection for vulnerable minorities, the new language is self-eradicating. Women are no longer protected because there is no longer any definable notion of what a woman actually is. Based solely on feeling and lacking a concrete definition, law cannot discern between the vulnerable and their predators.
The result: Women lose all rights to privacy and fair competition, and any school that dares to protect them loses their federal funding. When it comes down to it, will academic institutions choose to protect women or protect their profits? Take one look at the inflation of tuition costs over the last twenty years, and you’ll find your answer.
Sure enough, we see it already. William Thomas, now going by the name “Lia”, was a mediocre male swimmer at best. He was ranked number 462 among all male college swimmers. In May 2019, William started taking hormone replacement therapy and is now ranked number one among all female college swimmers. William, a biological male, is dominating the female swim domain due to his biological differences.
We see school boards covering up cases of sexual assault when female bathrooms are open to anyone who identifies as a female. In Loudoun County, Virginia, a male student who “felt” like a female assaulted not one, but two victims due to the Superintendent for the Loudoun County Public Schools covering up the first assault. Since the male student was not punished for the first assault, he went on to assault a second innocent female victim. The radical Left does not care about the innocent female victims. In California, women’s prisons are open to anatomically male inmates who identify as female due to the passage of SB 132. The institution’s method of handling having biological males in female prisons is by handing out contraceptives and Plan B to female inmates. Women cannot be protected when their aggressors are given a free pass to sidestep every defense by “identifying as their victims.”
Our country is at war for our girls. There is no time to sit on the sidelines and let someone else fight this battle. We cannot stay silent. The time to step up and protect our daughters, granddaughters, sisters, and nieces, is now. If we don’t make this a political priority, our politicians will quickly cave to the robust corporate pressures, the radical Leftist ideologies, and political ambitions, while our girls will lose all protections in the public sphere and be made to believe that they do not matter. We can never stop fighting for our girls.
