WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the Biden administration released new Title IX guidelines, redefining “sex” to mean “gender” and “gender identity.” In yet another example of life imitating art, the draft regulations bring Orwell’s 1984 to life: words no longer mean what they say, truth and science are subjective, and newspeak rules the day.

Jennifer Braceras, director of Independent Women’s Law Center said, “Without congressional authorization or other constitutional authority, the Biden administration has changed the wording and meaning of Title IX  so as to socially engineer every aspect of the educational experience — from student speech to and school athletics  and to require unjust discrimination against women.”

Inez Stepman, senior policy analyst at Independent Women’s Forum, added: “Out of a simple statute prohibiting discrimination, the Biden administration has obliterated all sex distinctions in educational institutions across the country, forcing them to be unable to recognize male and female. This has massive implications for the future of female sports, privacy, opportunities, and even safety. 

“Not content with erasing women, these new regulations also deny students their constitutional rights to due process and free speech. These sweeping changes have been forced on the American people by an out of control bureaucratic class pushing far beyond the boundaries of their legitimate power, and should be rejected.”
