Biden’s Title IX Rules Force Schools to Use Transgender Pronouns:
The Biden administration’s new Title IX regulations issued last week avoided using the word “transgender,” but the rules, which go into effect on August 1, are already being interpreted as protecting transgenderism, especially in the use of specialized pronouns when transgender and LGBTQ students demand their use.
Throughout the document, the term “gender identity” is used to describe certain actions that the new rules will force all public schools — not just colleges, but all publicly funded schools — to obey or risk being sued and/or losing federal funding.
The new rules announced last week define sex discrimination as discrimination based on gender identity as well as sexual proclivities, and schools cannot separate people based on sex. The rules do not explicitly say that boys must be let into girls bathrooms and changing rooms, but the language has already been interpreted to do just that.
In a press call with activists, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona insisted that school officials would be forced to use the preferred pronouns demanded by students.
“These regulations make it crystal clear that no one should have to abandon their educational aspirations due to discrimination, whether it’s based on pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other sex-based factors,” Cardona said, according to the LGBTQ-centric Advocate website.
Catherine Lhamon, the assistant secretary for Civil Rights, added that the rules are not just an update, but an overhaul “aimed at ensuring full protection under Title IX.” --->READ MORE HERE

Biden Admin Releases Finalized Rules Expanding Title IX Protection To Transgender Students:
President Joe Biden’s administration released a finalized rule on Friday that expands Title IX protection to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex in any public school or university that receives federal funding, and in 2022 the administration unveiled a revised version that would extend prohibitions against “gender identity.” The administration’s new rule is the finalized version after months of review and public comment and will go into effect on August 1, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE).
“For more than 50 years, Title IX has promised an equal opportunity to learn and thrive in our nation’s schools free from sex discrimination,” Miguel Cardona, secretary of the DOE, said in a statement. “These final regulations build on the legacy of Title IX by clarifying that all our nation’s students can access schools that are safe, welcoming, and respect their rights.”
The updated regulation prohibits schools from “preventing someone from participating in school (including in sex-separate activities) consistent with their gender identity,” excluding “sex-separate living facilities and sex-separate athletic teams.” --->READ MORE HERE
