The Department of Education under Lhamon is now proposing a new rule that will put women’s safety and privacy at risk and deprive women of athletic and professional opportunities. It would do so by radically rewriting Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
If this rule is approved, biological males would be able to:
- Openly change in girl’s dressing rooms.
- Take college and university scholarships specifically reserved for women.
- Use their position to charge schools with discrimination if they feel they aren’t getting enough "playing" time.
- File a formal sexual harassment complaint against any female who speaks out against men in women's sports.
- Share hotel rooms with females during overnight trips.
- Enjoy physical advantages like greater lung capacity, higher bone density, and greater muscle mass.
Title IX already prohibits discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. It’s enforced by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
The new rule proposed by Biden's Department of Education will redefine "sex" to include "sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics (including intersex traits), pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity.”
TAKE ACTION: File your comment in opposition to this proposed rule by the Biden Administration.
By law, the Biden administration must give citizens a period in which they may comment on new rules proposals. The deadline to submit your comment is September 12.
The Biden administration must count and review every comment submitted by September 12, 2022. Already, the Biden administration has had to withdraw two rules because of overwhelming public pressure in opposition.
A quick tip – personalized comments are best! A personalized comment with your own views and story is most impactful. Each unique comment requires an individualized response from the Biden Administration.
