Today I opened up the mailbox to find a catalogue (addressed to my wife) for women's sports clothing from a company called "Title Nine." Get it? Women's sports, Title IX? And yes, it's intentional -- inside the catalogue the company cites its inspiration from the 1972 law that "required all schools receiving federal funds to provide girls and women equal opportunity to compete in sports. . . . And we say "Amen!" to that."
Never mind the puffery about Title IX, a perverse law requiring equality of outcomes, thus causing colleges to cut men's athletics in the name of equality. But isn't it odd that a catalogue celebrating women's sports prowess is named after a law that tried to force equal opportunity at gunpoint? I mean, that doesn't sound very sporting to me.
Oh well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I'm going to start the Tenth Amendment Clothing Company as soon as I can get the seed capital together. And you? If you had to associate your wardrobe with a federal law, what law would you choose?
