Title IX is now 50 years old. The landmark law of 1972 guaranteed it that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Although it has opened the door to the possibility of more education opportunities specifically for females, the biggest tangible benefit from Title IX has been in the world of sports.
We're now living in the 21st Century, and we have Bend It Like Beckham, the WNBA, Women's Volleyball Olympic medalists, and women's World Cup champions. It is impossible to imagine for young Millennials as well as Zoomers to think that female athletes were barred from participating in their sport of choice at a college level, which meant they had no chance to compete professionally. Title IX changed all that by allowing more women to participate in competitive sports:
As of 1972, more than 300,000 girls and women were playing high school and college sports throughout the United States. Female athletes received just 2 percent of the budget for college athletics; however, athletic female scholarships were practically absent.
In 2012, which was the 40 year anniversary of the passage of Title IX, the number of girls taking part in high school athletics throughout the nation was ten times higher, reaching over 3 million. Over 190,000 girls participated in intercollegiate sports, six times more than in 1972. In 2016, one of five girls in the United States played sports, according to the Women's Sports Foundation. Prior to the passage of Title IX, that number was one out of 27.
Following Title IX, the floodgate was opened to athletically gifted girls to be awarded federal scholarships and/or funds to play sporting events that are competitive. Nowadays, professional and collegiate women's teams are in high demand and competing on the international stage, without a thought about what happened prior to the time the law was put in place. Women athletes are advocating for greater financial equality and this could not have been achieved without Title IX.
However, if the transgender group is successful and continues to flood the arena with male transgendered athletes, the benefits of Title IX will ultimately cease to exist.
That doesn't seem to worry Biden's administration in the least. As with a lot of their plans, it is less about respecting the law and more concerned with rewriting the law. They intend to make use of Title IX to increase diversity as well as equity and equality for trans athletes, as well as they will also be a part of the LGBT+ alphabet mafia.
On Wednesday night, first lady Jill Biden joined tennis trailblazer Billie Jean King to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX. The organizers of the event made sure that all speakers were aware of the buzzwords. How many times could you use “equity, diversity, inclusion?”
Billie Jean King was the main speaker and she was not riveting or convincing; however, since she was served words and was requested to repeat them, that's probably to be expected.
King's deepest thoughts:
“We can never understand inclusion until we understand exclusion,” King said.
Following a couple of obscure shibboleths, King delivered the primary topic of her presentation. The future of Title IX, and how we comply with the law.
“We have to improve compliance with the law. The principal users from Title IX have been white suburban girls.”
It's a relief… We begin to look at it. A lot of white girls benefit from Title IX, therefore Title IX isn't being correctly used. The resentment of the old white men is being replaced with “White, suburban girls.”
King then served the Biden Agenda ball:
“Let's take advantage of this significant anniversary to focus our efforts on advancing equity and strengthening and opportunities for all women and girls but particularly those who are marginalized because of the laws. It includes black girls, women who are disabled, trans athletes, and all LGBTQand youth. We must look ahead.”
It's either that King isn't very brilliant (doubtful) or she's delusional. If this is the direction King as well as the Biden administration are hoping to see happen to women's sports in the future, Title IX is essentially going to be ripped up and rendered irrelevant.
When Lady McBiden and Co. were enjoying their own vomit, a group called Our Bodies, Our Sports was busy in their own celebration in celebration of Title IX.
The event is scheduled for Thursday, around 11:00 a.m., and Our Bodies, Our Sports will rally on the Capitol steps to make only women's sports for females according to what Title IX intended.
The fiftieth anniversary of Title IX, join us to celebrate female athletes and join us in helping preserve the single-sex sport of athletics.
The sponsors include: Independent Women's Forum, Women's Liberation Front and The Heritage Foundation, Women's Declaration International USA Chapter, Concerned Women for America, ICONS, Save Women's Sports, Alliance Defending Freedom, Independent Women's Voice, Family Policy Alliance, and quite the list of women athletes. It is evident that Our Bodies, Our Sports aim is to fight this Biden agenda.
On June 23rd, female athletes and parents along with advocates are expected to join 14 groups from all political parties to protest in support of “Our Bodies, Our Sports.” The 23rd of June marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that was an element of Education Amendments of 1972 which is a law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education.
Since its introduction on the 22nd of July 1972, Title IX has transformed sports by ensuring women have the right to have equal opportunities in athletics. Prior to Title IX, only one of 27 girls played sports. Today, two in five do. However, women athletes are being pushed aside to make room for male athletes. This isn't fair, and it's unfair. It's time to restore Title IX.
A few athletes who address the Rally have endured the humiliation of having to compete against trans athletes and some are women of different races!
It's time to end that “white, suburban girls” stereotype. I'm certain that in their speech these women will be more persuasive (and sincere) in their speeches than Billie Jean King.
