Biden Rule Change: Women Erased From Title IX Sports
Biden Rule Change: Women Erased From Title IX Sports
The Biden Administration has really bought into the transgender craze. So much so that, in response to states trying to protect girls and women in sports, they announced a Title IX rule change yesterday. In the interest of being FAIR, there shall be no blanket bans of transgenders in sports.
The Biden administration on Thursday proposed new regulations that would allow schools to bar transgender athletes from participating in competitive high school and college sports, but disallow blanket bans on the athletes that have been approved across the country.
The rules would narrow when discrimination of trans athletes would be permitted. But they also would offer guidelines for when schools could bar their participation.
Under the proposal, schools would need to consider a range of factors before imposing a ban on trans athletes and would need to justify it based on educational grounds, such as the need for fairness. So, for instance, a school district could justify a ban on transgender athletes on their competitive high school track and field team, whereas a district would have a harder time making that case for an intramural middle school kickball squad.
Wait, what? So, making decisions on educational grounds should include being FAIR? I thought educational grounds for sports participation involved keeping your GPA at a certain level. But now, evidently the criteria is fairness.
There are a lot of problems with this Title IX rule change by the Biden Administration. First, the fairness issue …which makes me think of participation trophies. Everyone NEEDS a medal. Except that being “fair” to everyone ends up causing problems for all. Like it or not, there will always be winners and losers in the game of life. Title IX was put in place because women weren’t even given a chance at participating and being recognized for THEIR accomplishments in sports. Jill Biden herself even celebrated that fact, while shooting herself in the foot.
"It was such a great game. I'm old enough that I remember when we got Title IX. We fought so hard, right? We fought so hard. And look at where women's sports have come today."— Riley Gaines (@Riley_Gaines_) April 4, 2023

Under the administration’s proposal, schools would be prohibited from adopting or applying a “one-size-fits-all” policy that categorically bans transgender students from participating on sports teams consistent with their gender identity.
“Such bans fail to account for differences among students across grade and education levels,” the Education Department said Thursday in a news release. “They also fail to account for different levels of competition — including no-cut teams that let all students participate — and different types of sports.”
Instead, schools covered by the proposed rule would be permitted to draft their own policies limiting athletic participation based on a set of sex-related criteria unique to their community. Policies must take into account each sport, level of competition and grade or education level, the department said Thursday.
Keep in mind, Riley Gaines, from the tweet above knows of which she speaks. She was marginalized by the NCAA after a swim meet involving Lia Thomas and had to, along with the rest of her teammates, deal with him in the locker room.
The very big problem with this Title IX rule change is this: no matter the guy who choses to be a girl, that guy will always have some physical capability that will be greater than any girl he competes with. Well, unless you are Dylan Mulvaney. Moreover, as we are finding out, guys in high school and college who are in the middle of transitioning yet enter into women’s sports and are granted access to girls locker rooms because ‘fairness’ and reasons still don’t have the self control to not contain themselves. Furthermore, how many girls who decide to be transgender are trying out for football??
But evidently, the Biden Administration doesn’t care for women. Only for furthering the transgender agenda.
LOL I never would have guessed Title IX would one day allow biological males to displace biological females from competition. Sorry women with vaginas, you had a good run.— Rusty Shackleford (@not_dgribbs) April 6, 2023
But again, this is something that has been brewing because we all need to be FAIR!
That was a segment that aired last year. A boy, whose parents decided (and yes they did) that by the boy’s actions, that he was wanting to be a girl who should be allowed to do whatever he wants, biological girls be damned. Yet, as you watch later on in the segment, the case is made – somewhat – to let girls sports STAY girls sports.
Now, in jumps the Biden Administration. Title IX is great! Just let the guys in and it’s all good!
The proposed regulations must undergo a period of public comment before they become law. It would ban schools from categorically students from competing with the sex they identify as but give room for schools to consider "fairness" for older students pic.twitter.com/WAAoc3VAk2— Greg Price (@greg_price11) April 6, 2023
This isn’t about gender identity no matter which way the Biden Administration tries to spin it. It’s about biological reality. Boys and men who decide to become women and then compete in women’s sports will always have a physical advantage.
Title IX built women’s sports and Joe Biden is using Title IX to destroy women’s sports.— Burgess Owens (@BurgessOwens) April 6, 2023
FACT: Biological MEN don’t belong in WOMEN’S sports. https://t.co/AqcsYxfygK
The Biden administration has changed the definition of Title IX to prevent schools from banning all men from competing in women’s athletics. Another proud day for “women’s” sports: https://t.co/dOTCJzGsoz— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) April 7, 2023
And, as many have pointed out, if transgenders want to compete in a sport, they have two choices. A. compete in the sport they are biologically compatible with or B. Develop a transgender league of their own.
But they won’t, especially those college age or above as this is about power and political correctness. The end result being, Title IX is no longer and it is women who get the shaft.
