Title IX is an education bill, signed by then U.S. President Richard Nixon on June 23, 1972, which would henceforth provide a means of ensuring women’s equal access to education, programmatically declaring that “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 educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
Title IX has been particularly relevant since then in the field of women’s sports. According to a study by the Women’s Sports Foundation, girls’ participation in high school sports competitions and activities increased from 294,015 in the 1971-72 school year to 3.4 million in 2018-19 (boys’ participation was 3.67 million in 1971-72 and was 4.53 million in 2018-19).
On Thursday, June 23, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the signing of Title IX, the Biden Administration added new guidelines to it, which would allow males who identify as females to participate in sports competitions in women’s categories, literally blowing up what has been gained through long years of effort and once again eroding women’s spaces and roles in the name of the pervasive and intrusive transgender ideology.
As many as 700 pages of amendments to Title IX seek to convince people that the legal definition of “sex” should not be limited by biology. And this is despite the fact that, recently, some sports federations, aware of the obvious disparity in strength between women and transgender men who identify as women, have ruled out such participation from taking place, for obvious reasons of fairness. One of them is the International Swimming Federation (FINA), who banned biologicla males from female competitions following the controversy generated by Will “Lia” Thomas’ 500-yard victory.
Meanwhile, a few blocks from the White House, under a tent raised at the Freedom Plaza, numerous women from a wide range of backgrounds gathered to protest such abuse, in a protest themed Our bodies, our sports, to highlight the countless ways in which women are disadvantaged in relation to men’s participation in women’s athletic competitions under the bogus banner of “gender identity.”
“Female bodies are fundamentally different from male bodies,” reads the protesters’ appeal. “In recognition of these immutable biological differences, most athletic competitions have separate divisions for males and females. But, recently, women’s sports have come under attack. On the 50th anniversary of Title IX, join us in celebrating female athletes and help us preserve same-sex athletic competition.” You really can’t blame them for fighting for women’s rights–once again in human history.
