The Biden administration proposed a dramatic overhaul of campus sexual assault rules on Thursday, acting to expand protections for LGBTQ students, bolster the rights of victims and widen colleges’ responsibilities in addressing sexual misconduct.

The proposal, announced on the 50th anniversary of the Title IX women’s rights law, is intended to replace a set of controversial rules issued during the Trump administration by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

The article goes on to state the following:

The proposal is almost certain to be challenged by conservatives, and it is expected to lead to new legal battles over the rights of transgender students in schools, especially in sports. It now faces a public feedback period before the Biden administration can finalize any changes, meaning the earliest that the policy is likely to take effect is next year.


Declaring that Title IX has been “instrumental” in fighting sexual assault and violence in education, Biden’s education secretary, Miguel Cardona said, “As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this landmark law, our proposed changes will allow us to continue that progress and ensure all our nation’s students — no matter where they live, who they are, or whom they love — can learn, grow, and thrive in school.”

Cardona’s Department of Education posted the following statement in a series of Twitter posts:

As we mark #TitleIXAt50 today, here are six #TitleIX changes ED is proposing to ensure federally funded education programs & activities are free from ALL forms of sex discrimination:

1. #TitleIX protection from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on:
– Sex stereotypes
– Sex characteristics
– Pregnancy or related conditions
– Sexual orientation
– Gender identity

2. Strengthening protections for LGBTQI+ students by clarifying that Title IX’s protections against discrimination based on sex apply to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

As SCOTUS wrote in Bostock v. Clayton County, it is “impossible to discriminate against a person” on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity without “discriminating against that individual based on sex.”

3. Protecting the right of parents & guardians to act on behalf of & support their elementary & secondary school children.

4. Protecting students and employees who are pregnant or have pregnancy-related conditions. Today, far too many women still see their education derailed because of pregnancy discrimination.

5. Requiring schools to:
– Respond promptly to sex discrimination complaints with a fair & reliable process
– Support students & employees facing sex discrimination
– Clearly & effectively communicate nondiscrimination policies

6. Clarifying & confirming protection from retaliation for students, employees, & others who exercise their #TitleIX rights.

ED will also engage in a separate rulemaking in the future to address #TitleIX’s application to athletics.

“Our proposed changes would allow us to continue Title IX’s progress and ensure all our nation’s students can learn, grow, and thrive in school, free from sex discrimination.” – @SecCardona

ED’s proposed #TitleIX regulations will be open for public comment for 60 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.

  1. I am so sick of the LGBT bull shit we have so much more important things to worry about in this country enough with this garbage.

  2. This doesn’t work for straight kids. My granddaughter quit basketball because of girls making sexual advances toward her and she was not allowed to say anything, because it was called discrimination!! Should work both ways!!

  3. This should work both ways. My granddaughter quit basketball because girls would make sexual advances to her and she was not allowed to say anything about it. It would be discrimination!!

  4. Why does my comments keep getting blocked??? My granddaughter had to quit basketball because girls making sexual advances and she was not allowed to say anything because of discrimination!!!

  5. #4 they actually acknowledge a woman exists, yet here they go again trying to erase them altogether.
