Parent groups predicted the Biden administration's upcoming changes to
Title IX sex discrimination rules would spell danger for students.
Former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos had written that Title IX’s
sex-based protections were sticking by the definitions of "biological
sex, male or female." However, in March 2021, President Biden signed an executive order outlining plans to review Title IX regulations related
to gender identity. The administration's reforms include rolling back
some due process protections put in place by the Trump administration,
and changing the definition of "sex" to include "gender identity."
Several of the signatories expanded on their concerns in exclusive
interviews with Fox News Digital.
"We see that this idea of identifying students in general by identity
than by biological is concerning to us," Moms for Liberty co-founder
Tiffany Justice told Fox News Digital. "We’re seeing sexual harassment claims, or harassment claims as language is violence, being used by
students who accidentally misgender a child in the classroom. Sometimes
genders are fluid. Instances where a child was being told to kill
themselves and being bullied by a group of students who were literally
changing their gender every day and then the school was looking at
harassment violations or harassment claims against that child, which
was not the case. These are 11-year-olds."
"We don’t see any reasons why it needs to be changed," she continued.
"We think it really is the erasure of women in general. And as mothers
we are women, adult human females, who are not birthing people."
