Biden’s new Title IX rules: adds ‘Gender Identity’ as protected class

The Biden administration released a draft proposal Friday which would amend the famous Title IX. The revision “does not specifically mention trans athletes, it does add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected classes” reports National Review. 

Additionally, the proposal included a radical revision that would have “forced federally funded educational institutions to allow men to compete on their women’s sports teams unless they demonstrate it compromises student safety. Under that rule, the burden of proof would have been shifted to schools, which in effect would have to create separate policies for every sport.”

“I never thought I’d see the day where Title IX would be used to harm women, but sadly, that day has come,” Former Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement to National Review. “The Biden Administration’s radical rewrite of Title IX guts the half century of protections and opportunities for women and callously replaces them with radical gender theory, as Biden’s far-left political base demanded. This regulation is an assault on women and girls.”

National Review explains:

Friday’s announcement does, however, reverse Trump-era sexual assault rules, rolling back some due-process protections for accused students and lowering the standard for finding a student guilty of sexual misconduct.

The rule prohibits “all forms of sex-based harassment, including sexual violence and unwelcome sex-based conduct that creates a hostile environment by limiting or denying a person’s ability to participate in or benefit from a school’s education program or activity.”

With the new rule, investigators involved in campus cases now have the option to hold a hearing of both parties, as was required under the Trump-era policy, or hold individual meetings where a party or witness will be asked questions offered by the other party.

The timeline for the new Title IX release had been delayed multiple times. First expected in May 2023, the release was postponed to October then again to March 2024. The Education Department received over 230,000 comments during the draft period.

The head of a radical organization in favor of the Cuban regime and that also openly supports the Hamas terrorist group in New York, was arrested Tuesday after the NYPD evicted an anti-Israel camp at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in Manhattan.

A video posted by The People’s Forum (TPF) on X, formerly Twitter, depicts Manolo De Los Santos, executive director of TPF, an anti-Israel organization that sympathizes with the Chinese Communist Party, was arrested by several NYPD officers wearing riot helmets near the institute’s campus on West 27th Street.

On April 29, more than 100 masked activists met in Manhattan at the office of the TPF, an organization backed by American businessman Neville Roy Singham, a self-proclaimed socialist known for financially supporting left-wing causes, to plan their next moves, while protests Anti-Israel protests reach a fever pitch across the country, reports ADN America.

Manolo De Los Santos urged the group to “give Joe Biden a hot summer” and “make it unsustainable for politics as usual in this country.” Likewise, he asked to recreate “the summer of 2020,” in reference to the violence that besieged major cities in the United States months after the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

A few hours after the meeting was called, dozens of protesters illegally broke into Columbia University’s Hamilton Hall and gained entry through a glass-paneled door that one of those involved broke with a hammer.

Police arrived at the scene after being called by Columbia President Minouche Shafik. In total, 44 people were arrested, including two university staff members and 13 “outsiders” who were not affiliated with the school, Columbia confirmed in a news release Thursday.

The People’s Forum, an organization that describes itself as “a movement incubator for working class and marginalized communities,” has been a mainstay of anti-Israel protests since Hamas’ attack on the Jewish state on October 7, 2023.
