Rather than uphold the hard-won protections for women under the almost half-century-old Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Biden administration continues to steamroll women’s equality and opportunity.
Citing the Bostock v. Clayton County Supreme Court ruling, the Department of Education released a notice yesterday announcing it would interpret Title IX protections against discrimination on the basis of sex to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Such radical reinterpretation is a step back from “equality for all.”
Sadly, the Biden administration’s move is not a surprise.
President Joe Biden launched what has become a full-scale effort to dismantle women’s equality. On his first day in office, Biden signed a divisive executive order that expands discrimination on the basis of sex to include sexual orientation and gender identity. A few weeks later, he nominated Miguel Cardona for education secretary. Cardona refused to acknowledge the differences in biological sex for sports during his confirmation hearing.
