“engages in discrimination against men because the overall effect is discriminatory”

UPenn Women’s Center targeted in federal Title IX complaint
The nation’s oldest men’s nonprofit has filed a Title IX complaint against the University of Pennsylvania, alleging that 22 of the school’s programs unlawfully exclude men, including the Women’s Center.
According to a complaint filed on June 22, the National Coalition for Men requests that the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) launch a formal probe into certain women-only scholarships and programs at the Ivy League school.
Programs that directly exclude men include The Penn Forum for Women Faculty, The Penn Women’s Support Group, and the Trustees Council of Penn Women, according to the complaint.
But the complaint also takes aim at programs with ambiguous membership rules, such as the Women’s Studies Department, the Alice Paul Center for Research on Gender, Sexuality, and Women, and various other initiatives to “support women” in STEM and academia.
Though these programs might not bar men from joining, per se, NCFM alleges that many of these programs indirectly bar men. In many cases, the group cites the absolute lack, or near lack, of male participants to justify its claims.
“University of Pennsylvania Women’s Center engages in discrimination against men because the overall effect is discriminatory,” the complaint asserts. “The Center describes itself as ‘a perfect space for women, female-identified persons, and feminists of all genders’—the overall effect of which is to create a hostile environment against men.”

to the full extent allowed by law.
UPenn will simply redefine “discrimination” so that it is not possible to harm a men.
Anyway, I think I know the difference between a man and a woman but does UPenn know? If I decide I am a woman for an hour, can I use the UPenn Women’s Center for that hour? Definitions are dynamic says the leftist when needed to circumvent logic or justice otherwise they are not.
Does not the definition of “discrimination” by Congress apply in a court of law?
