Dep. of Education to expand Title IX protections to transgender students
The Department of Education (DOED) is expected to extend Title IX protections to transgender students, a move that would reflect the Biden administration’s stance on gender ideology.
Revisions were originally proposed last fall and the DOED announced that the regulation would be finalized in April.
However, The Washington Post reported Wednesday that no information has been released regarding the approved content.
According to the abstract of the Fall 2021 proposal, Title IX would be extended to protect against discrimination on account of sexual orientation and gender identity, thus opening the door to include transgenderism within the same protections that apply to biological sex.
According to the Post, the new regulation will define “discrimination on the basis of sex” as including “sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics (including intersex traits), pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity,” according to The Washington Post.
Such revisions would align Title IX with the priorities of the Biden administration, which has taken a progressive position on transgender rights since the beginning of its term.
“The Department plans to propose to amend its regulations implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972… consistent with the priorities of the Biden-Harris Administration,” the abstract reads.
The priorities pertain to two Executive Orders signed by President Joe Biden in his first term that prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
The Biden administration’s first executive order, EO 13988, states its opposition to discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Biden signed the order on his first day in office, further signifying the issue as a top priority of his administration.
