President Joe Biden’s Department of Education is predicted to finalize changes to Title IX rules in the coming weeks to degrade our society even further by expanding the definition of “discrimination” beyond sex to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” Because the world isn’t screwed up enough for the progressive woke supremacy.
The woke rule changes will have monumental ramifications concerning states’ rights arguments against federal overreach, especially in free states that do not allow men to compete in women’s sports.
Think about how much one of the biggest donor bases for the Democratic Party, the trial lawyers, is going to love it. Books will be written about how the federal woke supremacists fought to allow any man who claims he’s a woman to go into women’s school bathrooms and locker rooms regardless of local and state laws. Think of a whole new slew of sexual harassment accusations on college campuses that you know will eventually find their way in the workplace.
This one sentence from the draft will allow trial lawyers to put all of their children through ivy league schools:
Discrimination on the basis of sex includes discrimination on the basis of sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics (including intersex traits), pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
This means if a man with a scruffy beard wearing a dress, who looks just like a man with a scruffy beard wearing a dress, applies for say a receptionist job at a school and the school administration doesn’t want someone who looks like him to be the first thing people see, he will be able to sue the school for gender identity bias even if he has no experience for the position and there were other candidates that did. It doesn’t matter if the case gets thrown out, the cost of these lawsuits will cause problems for schools which will inevitably hurt students.
According to the rag, the Biden administration’s Department of Education is planning to redo rules that were established under the Trump administration‘s Department of Education at the direction of former Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, that required schools to recognize a presumption of innocence for students who are accused of sexual harassment or assault. Prior to those reforms, there was no consideration for the accused. Too many crime hoaxes were filed that destroyed the lives of innocent accused people.
Biden is getting rid of those reforms so that woke administrations of schools can go back to CIS hetero witch hunts. This includes due process protections that were put in under DeVos, like the right to cross-examination for both the accused and the accuser. Too many schools would not allow the accused to question their accuser in their own defense, only to end up being punished for something they didn’t do. Another concern is getting rid of another protection put in under the Trump administration that allows the accused full access to the evidence that is collected by schools during sexual harassment investigations and the right to give a response to the evidence.
The way the schools ran things prior to those reforms was a literal witch hunt where the accused was not given any due process rights, and the liberals that supported this would argue that an inquiry at a school was not a courtroom even though the penalties could destroy an innocent person’s life.
Another concern would be the silencing of any debate over biological males competing in women’s sports because the biological men would now be protected to destroy women’s sports and other activities. You could be punished and possibly expelled if you point out that a male swimmer who was ranked 462 when competing as a man and now ranks #1 as a trans woman is unfair.
One thing we have learned from the transgender invasion of women’s sports is that Americans do not agree with it because most Americans share an understanding of fairness and in sports, unfair advantages are not tolerated. Just as people would not tolerate certain runners having shackles placed on their ankles before a race, biological men competing as women will never be tolerated either. And here we have the Biden administration trying to rig life for a tiny minority of people that will do major damage to the overwhelming majority of Americans.
It seems like it is time for the courts to weigh in.
