The Biden administration is playing games with the definitions of sex and gender.
President Joe Biden has proposed changing the definition of the word “sex” in Title IX, a portion of the Education Amendments of 1972 that prevents discrimination on the basis of sex within public education. Biden would redefine sex to include gender identity and sexual orientation.
Under that proposed change, men who identify as women would be permitted to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms at school and participate on women’s sports teams.
Fortunately, Americans have an opportunity to voice support or opposition to the proposed change. Individuals and organizations have until Sept. 12 to send a comment to the Federal Register explaining their position.
The Department of Education is required to review and respond to every comment. So far, about 350,000 comments have been submitted.
The rule change to Title IX will be delayed, or possibly halted, depending upon the number of public comments, Sarah Parshall Perry, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, says. (The Daily Signal is Heritage’s multimedia news organization.)
