The U.S. Department of Education has unveiled proposed changes to federal civil rights law to clarify that protections against sex discrimination "include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity." The proposal sparked concerns from conservative groups, female athletes and civil rights groups that the Biden administration is working to redefine "sex” as it was originally used in the fifty-year-old Title IX. Progressive organizations celebrated the rule proposal.
Title IX’s initial purpose was to ensure women had equal educational opportunities at the collegiate level. The Biden administration is poised to gut this provision. This push to redefine the word “sex” will put women at risk and at a disadvantage in multiple ways. In addition, these changes put religious freedom squarely in the crosshairs.
