Transgender Athletes Support DOE's Proposed Changes To Title IX

The Department of Education (DOE) has proposed a radical change to the language of Title IX that would prevent federally-funded schools from banning transgenders from women’s sports.

Many of the details still need to be worked out, but the proposed change (if implemented) would basically mean that K-8 schools would not be able to enact a one-size-fits all plan to keep transgenders out of women’s sports. High schools and colleges could have slightly more discretion in policy making.

“Every student should be able to have the full experience of attending school in America, including participating in athletics, free from discrimination," U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said.

Even if that means making women pay the price of supporting transgenderism? Gotcha.

Two of the most prominent transgender athletes -- Yale swimmer Iszac Henig and Lia Thomas -- not only support the proposed rule change, but want to make sure the DOE’s rule change allows for transgenders to compete on high school and college team whenever and wherever they want.

“I would love to see protections expanded to include elite and collegiate sports, but this seems like a good start,” said Henig. “Trans athletes should have the ability to compete on the team of their choice if their athletic skills allow it.”

Thomas posted a video with his statement on Twitter in which he said that transgenders students would be harmed if not given opportunities to do the same atrocious thing he did at the NCAA level.

Where does Thomas get off saying “under the guise of competitive fairness” to criticize schools? He of all people should know that just because a man takes some hormone suppressants and mutilates himself does not mean that a man competing against women somehow becomes “fair.”

Riley Gaines -- a real female who suffered firsthand as a result of the NCAA’s decision to allow Thomas to swim in the women’s division -- was unimpressed with Thomas’ advocacy for the policy.

Should the DOE implement these changes, it would be an understatement to say women’s sports would be lost forever.
