New Biden Administration rule ties federal funding to pro-transgender policies

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced it will change interpretation of Title IX prohibitions on discrimination based on sex “to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The Biden Administration rule ties billions of dollars in federal education funding to such policies. The change means “schools that accept any kind of funding, including receiving FAFSA or Pell grants or students who receive federally subsidized school lunch funding, will be subject to the new Title IX LGBT interpretation” reports The Center Square.

In a statement, the USDA stated “As a result, state and local agencies, program operators and sponsors that receive funds from FNS must investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation.”

“Those organizations must also update their non-discrimination policies and signage to include prohibitions against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.”

“Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,” the White House said January of last year.

The Biden administration said in its announcement this is a push toward “equity and fairness.”

“USDA is committed to administering all its programs with equity and fairness, and serving those in need with the highest dignity,” Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack said.

“A key step in advancing these principles is rooting out discrimination in any form – including discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Sarah Perry, a legal expert at the Heritage Foundation expressed the downsides of the rule:

“A third [change] that is unspoken and won’t appear in the new rule but will have implications, it will be essentially a muzzling of free speech for individuals who for example don’t toe the party line on gender identity and will be forced … to use an individual’s preferred pronouns or be faced potentially with Title IX sex discrimination charges,” Perry said.

“So it will not only require the adherence to these beliefs. It will force speech. It will compel speech in violation of the First Amendment, and we have yet to even examine fully the parameters of how that is going to play out in the court room…”

    It’s a whole new world if the federal agencies can arbitrarily start changing the actual language in federal laws. Does the Agriculture Department get to change laws regarding discrimination based on sex? Really? Title IX does not address “gender” any more than it addresses “cross-dressing.” However, the Dept of Education, in June issued a notice that it was extending Title IX protections “to include: (1) discrimination based on sexual orientation; and (2) discrimination based on gender identity. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any education program or activity offered by a recipient of federal financial assistance.” What agency will now change the Second Amendment, backed up by the president’s notion that the Amendment is, “not absolute.” BTW, you can own a cannon, Joe. eBay currently has 13 black powder cannons for sale between $3,000 and $13,000.

    Time for states to become independent. Taxes are voluntary. States should keep all their revenues, and teach how they choose.

    why should we pay for gender programs. We are teaching our young people that it is ok to change
    their gender, and we must respect there idoiti0c decisions. Not for me I will still laugh at them.

    This needs to be made unconstitutional. Where is freedom for the 99% who are NOT transgender? More BS from those who want to destroy US, U.S.

    “Title IX LGBT interpretation” will work better than COVID19, better than a neutron-bomb… Thanks to it in 2-3 generations the US population will be halved and consisting of pussies and snowflakes

More than half of top Medical Schools now mandate Critical Race Theory

In a win for the woke warriors who care more about feelings than they do science or medical wellbeing, medical schools are being forced to mandate Critical Race Theory (CRT) training.

According to the Critical Race Training in Education database and reported by the Daily Caller:

Approximately 58 of the top 100 medical schools ranked by the U.S. News & World report include CRT in their courses and student training, according to the Critical Race Training in Education database. Of the top schools, 46 provide students and staff with resources by Robin DiAngelo, the author of “Nice Racism,” a book about how progressive white people perpetuate racial harm, and Ibram X. Kendi, the author of several books on antiracism including “Stamped.”

The Critical Race Training in Education database states, “As with our higher education database, some have embraced CRT explicitly, while others have a continuum of programming, such as ‘antiracism,’ ‘equity,’ and ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ that does not easily fit into a Yes/No construct…We provide information from which you can make the most informed decision possible.”

The Daily Caller notes that CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.

The antiracism push in medical education is increasing; to reach diversity, equity and inclusion goals, 35.6% of medical schools are offering incentives to departments who meet the diversity goals set by the institution. In July, the Association of American Medical Colleges released new guidelines on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives for medical schools to teach students to consider their “privilege” and patients’ “intersectionality” when providing treatment.

The Daily Caller provides a breakdown on some of the nation’s top Medical Schools:

Harvard Medical School, named the top medical school in the country by the U.S. News & World report, is developing new classes for their masters and Ph.D. programs which will help students “acknowledge the ways in which racism is embedded in science and scientific culture and work to redress these longstanding issues,” according to Harvard Medical School’s website. The school’s Global Surgery and Social Change program requires its students to “participate in and lead informed discussions about antiracism through a dedicated antiracism curriculum” in order to educate students on the “history of racism and colonialism in health.”

The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, ranked third in the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, has racial affinity caucusing groups for students to participate in “antiracist work and process the impact of racism on ourselves and our community,” the school’s website reads. In September 2022, the school announced its “Differences Matter Initiative” to help the school “accelerate the achievement of equity and inclusion across the medical profession.”

Duke University School of Medicine, ranked sixth by the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, implemented an antiracism committee to “incorporate teaching racism and racial inequities” through “teaching, research and clinical missions,” the school website showed. The school offers resources including “an antiracist reading list from Ibram X. Kendi” to help further its goal of making the school “an educational and research leader and agent of change towards an antiracist culture.”

The department of surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, ranked 68th for medical schools in the nation, provides “ongoing faculty development sessions in topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion,” the school website stated. Students in the department of surgery will be taught to “eliminate the impact of implicit and explicit bias” within their practice.
