Biden Education Secretary Says Biological Males Should Be Allowed To Compete In Girls’ Sport

Joe Biden’s Education Secretary declared Thursday that he believes biological boys should be allowed to compete against girls in sports, and even accused his questioner, GOP Congressman Jim Banks, of wanting to exclude children by discussing their biological gender.

During a Congressional hearing, Banks questioned Cardona on the administration’s attitude toward “gender identity”.

Banks told Cardona that “Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. However, your department is currently pushing a rule to force every school in America to add non binary as a sex characteristic.”

“How can the Department of Education enforce sex based discrimination when the very definition of sex is so unclear?” Banks asked.

“We’re not pushing for that. We are allowing states who have different categories to use those different categories of data collection that they’re already collecting,” Cardona claimed.

“So you’re not waiting for a rule to add non binary?” Banks further asked Cardona.

“We’re allowing states to report whatever classifications they have in their states,” Cardona responded.

Banks then moved to probe on the sports issue, asking “do you believe that biological male athletes competing in women’s sports are in conflict with Title IX protections for female athletes?” 

After failing to properly answer the question, Banks doubled down, asking “Do you think it’s fair for biological boys to compete against girls in sports?”

Cardona responded “Sir, I see where your questions are going, and I’m going to be very clear with you — our transgender students need to feel supported, included, and seen,” adding “And, your line of questioning is, even by describing it the way you’re doing it, shows me that you don’t believe that all students should have access to the extracurricular activities that schools provide.”

Banks told Cardona that “somehow, somewhere you and this administration believe that Title IX somehow protects biological boys for competing against girls and sports. You’re okay with that.”

Biden Admin Announces They Will STARVE Poor Children If Their School Doesn’t Let Boys In To Girl’s Bathrooms

In the middle of a food shortage crisis which has forced many schools to severely ration their lunches, the Biden Administration will require all schools receiving federal funding for school lunches to allow biological males into little girls’ bathrooms.

Remember when school bullies would take another kid’s lunch money? Well, Biden plans to more or less do exactly that–but for trans rights!

According to the Biden Admin, all state and local agencies receiving federal Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) funding–which includes schools–will have to fall in line with an Obama-era interpretation of Title IX. This newer interpretation expands gender discrimination prohibitions to include not allowing transgender students to use the locker rooms, showers, and restrooms of their preferred gender.

Or, in other words, it means that schools will be required to let biological boys into the girls’ locker rooms and restrooms if they claim to be transgender.

Three Wisconsin Middle School Boys Hit with Title IX Sexual Harassment Complaint for Calling Non-Binary Classmate by Wrong Pronouns

Three Wisconsin middle school boys were hit with a Title IX sexual harassment complaint for refusing to refer to a non-binary classmate by ‘they/them’ pronouns.

Three 8th graders at Kiel Middle School are under investigation for refusing to capitulate to a so-called ‘non-binary’ student’s demands.

Title IX covers rape, dating violence and quid pro quo sexual favors.

Attorneys at the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty argue that Title IX doesn’t cover the misuse of pronouns and neither do any of the school district’s policies.

WLUK reported:

The school district has filed a Title IX complaint against the Kiel Middle School students, accusing them of sexual harassment for using incorrect pronouns when addressing another student.

I received a phone call from the principal over at the elementary school, forewarning me; letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son,” Rosemary Rabidoux, one of the parents of the students being accused said. “I immediately went into shock! I’m thinking, sexual harassment? That’s rape, that’s inappropriate touching, that’s incest. What has my son done?”

Rabidoux’s 13-year-old son Braden is one of the three eighth-grade Kiel Middle School students accused of sexual harassment — something she disputes.

“(The investigating principal) said he’s being allegedly charged with sexual harassment for not using proper pronouns,” said Rabidoux. “I thought it wasn’t real! I thought this has got to be a gag, a joke — one has nothing to do with the other.”

According to the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), now defending the accused students, in March, one of their peers announced the pronouns they’d prefer to be addressed as — they/them.

One of the alleged incidents Braden and the others were supposedly involved in happened in late April.

“She had been screaming at one of Braden’s friends to use proper pronouns, calling him profanity, and this friend is very soft-spoken, and kind of just sunk down into his chair,” Rabidoux explained. “Braden finally came up, defending him, saying ‘He doesn’t have to use proper pronouns, it’s his constitutional right to not use, you can’t make him say things.’”

Here’s How Biden’s Radical Rewrite Of Key Civil Rights Law Will Fundamentally Change America

President Joe Biden’s Department of Education (DOE) is expected to roll out new Title IX rules that will expand the definition of sex to include gender identity, which experts say will have legal and cultural implications for all aspects of American education.

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) is planning to take an unprecedented step to expand the definition of sex to include gender identity under Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, a key civil righs law which ensures no person is discriminated against under any federal education program or activity “on the basis of sex.”

The rule change will require every sex-separated space, program, building, bathroom and locker room to accommodate individuals “who may feel as though they are women, even though biologically, they are men,” Sarah Perry, a senior legal fellow for The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“What we saw with Lia Thomas at the NCAA Championships will now be happening at schools and colleges across the country if they receive so much as $1 of federal funding from the Department of Education,” Perry said.

Biden Picks Catherine Lhamon, Enemy of Campus Due Process, To Head Civil Rights Office in Education Dept.

The White House announced today that President Biden will nominate Catherine Lhamon to serve as the Department of Education’s Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights — the same position from which she oversaw efforts to undermine the due process rights of students accused of sexual misconduct during the Obama administration.

Under Lhamon’s leadership, the Office for Civil Rights enforced guidance that gutted due process protections and violated the First Amendment. Lhamon used that guidance to pressure institutions to restrict constitutionally protected speech and disregard basic procedural protections in campus disciplinary hearings.

By putting forward Lhamon for this crucial role, President Biden has signaled that he would rather colleges go back to old, failed policies — policies that have earned rebukes from dozens and dozens of courts to date — than pursue Title IX policies that take the rights of all students into account.

Biden’s plans for campus sexual misconduct regulations leave lawyers puzzled

Biden has long defined his political career on protecting women, but his accomplishments have a mixed legacy.

The Violence Against Women Act of 1994, which he shepherded through Congress, has since faced feminist scrutiny for treating domestic violence as a law enforcement issue, which may have ironically reduced reporting of abuse. 

Reauthorization language for VAWA has also been criticized for watering down the definition of domestic violence and incentivizing romantic partners to lie. Feminist Wendy McElroy, who lost sight in one eye from domestic violence, warned that the language represents the “criminalization of normal life,” including common squabbles in relationships.

Joe Biden has claimed that President Obama specifically tasked him with devising policy on campus sexual misconduct before they were elected in 2008. As vice president, Biden compared supporters of due process for accused students to the “Nazis” who marched in the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally.

The White House issued an executive order March 8 directing Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to review its predecessor’s Title IX regulation “for consistency with governing law” by the end of April.

All “agency actions” must follow President Biden’s policy that “all students should be guaranteed an educational environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex,” including sexual harassment, the order said.

PRESIDENT BIDEN MOVES TO END FEMALE-ONLY SPORTS AND SERVICES ON HIS FIRST DAY IN OFFICE

One of the first acts of Joe Biden’s presidency was to gut sex anti-discrimination laws and eliminate critical protections for women in the federal government. On Wednesday afternoon, only hours after being sworn into office, Biden signed an executive order that “builds on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County (2020) and ensures that the federal government interprets Title VII of the the [sic] Civil Rights Act of 1964 as prohibiting workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity,” according to the Biden transition team website

The order also ensures “that federal anti-discrimination statutes that cover sex discrimination prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.” Federal civil rights offices will also be required to enforce this interpretation in any matter that comes before them, likely including siding against women’s rights in court cases.

With this action, Biden is bypassing the legislative process to implement the most controversial provisions of the Equality Act—changing the definition of sex in federal anti-discrimination regulations so that female people are no longer a discrete class with protected status under the law. As we predicted, the new administration is relying on the Bostock decision to do so.

This executive order directs federal agencies to do two things. First, federal agencies are now required to interpret “sex” as also including “sexual orientation and gender identity” in their own internal regulations and workplace policies.  Second, agencies are directed to perform a comprehensive assessment of all regulations under their purview, and create a plan with 100 days to “revise, suspend, or rescind such agency actions, or promulgate [propose] new agency actions”  that will impose this interpretation onto all American employers, institutions, and individuals, with no exceptions. 

The Supreme Court was clear at the time of the Bostock decision that the ruling was only meant to be applied to hiring and firing discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, in advancing their novel reasoning that “transgender status” meant that a male employee should be allowed to identify into the otherwise lawful sex-based rules for female employees. While we strongly support protections from discrimination based on sexual orientation, the Biden administration has grossly expanded the application of the decision with far-reaching implications for women’s rights in nearly every aspect of public life, including Title IX.
