What’s the greatest threat to parental rights in the coming school year? It may be the Title IX changes proposed by the ever-devious Democrats.
Merrick Garland labeled parents as domestic terrorists. So what better way to bring Mom and Dad in line than to emotionally and sexually kidnap their children during the school day, using concocted regulations and federal dollars?
Biden is attempting through government agency rules (without congressional action) to radically alter the definition of the word “sex” used in the 1972 discrimination law (Title IX) that opened the door to women’s sports, among other opportunities. By a lawless distortion of authority, Biden's Department of Education wants the meaning of “sex” in Title IX to cover “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” and “pregnancy or related conditions.”
And it will be a civil rights’ violation if schools “deny” recognition of “rights” based on the new magical thinking. Alleged “sexual harassment” accusations are also packaged in the new language. See where this is going?
In a recent Wisconsin incident, three middle school boys were accused of sexual harassment using the still-in-draft Title IX revisions. What did they do? Allegedly call a classmate by undesirable pronouns. The school dropped the nonsensical charges after much public outcry.
The US Department of Education is taking public comments on this until September 12. (UPDATE: Over 235,000 responses were sent!! Go HERE to read their plans.) But we don’t have to let this scheme take us by surprise. And there’s always the chance (Please, God!) that a miracle will prevent the implementation of this tyrannical order they could never get passed by legislative means.
But barring a miracle, by January, empowered feds will arrive in your child’s school building looking for ways to “support” your child – contrary to your wishes—to enable his/her puberty blocking meds, entry to any bathroom or shower, early teen chemical or surgical castration, your son’s allegedly suppressed homosexual desires, or your daughter’s search for a discreet abortion. Confused or attention-hungry boys will co-opt girls’ athletic opportunities and school district lawyers will meekly submit to this new “regulation.”
Because federal funding is such a driver of policy in “local” schools, the Biden administration will use this devious method to bring pesky parents to their knees. Parental permission will not be needed to go ahead and counsel your son our daughter against your wishes in pro-LGBTQ, pro-abortion behavior, and to silence those whose privacy rights and athletic dreams are obliterated.
And religious freedom? Forget about it. To the Biden Administration, your faith rights are its toilet paper. The USDOE is already forcing schools to comply with this “order” even though it’s still in the review stage.
They did finally, after a lawsuit, agree to a religious exemption of the draft Title IX regs for a Florida Christian school. The Biden folks have threatened to end federal funding for school lunches unless boys dressed as girls can enter all restrooms. In this case, the feds backed down. In a tough election year, it doesn’t look too good to deny food to poor children just so rainbow radicals can assert their “pride.”
Here's what will happen to implement this madness. In many schools a “Title IX Coordinator “ will show up who will actually have more de facto power than the district superintendent. That person will have mucho incentive to not simply sit and wait for student requests but to create and perpetuate a need for these services.
The coordinator will surely seek out ways to “rescue” children from their oppressive, Judeo-Christian family’s values using the rationale of guaranteeing “rights” and preventing “sexual violence.” Let’s just remember that “violence” to today’s unhinged progressives can be as simple as a raised eyebrow. “He made me feel unsafe!” And off your son goes to appear before the tribunal and receive a permanent negative mark on his academic record.
If the proposed changes to Title IX are implemented after the September 12 public input period expires, the feds will have virtually unlimited power to implement every nasty, unethical, predatory portion of the “LGBTQ” agenda, with your child as one of many test cases.
After all, your quiet sixth grader is probably hiding her true nature as a boy born in a girl’s body. That Title IX coordinator will be quick to spot this emerging discrimination opportunity, and secretly counsel her to visit the clinic at the local children’s hospital to start her testosterone injections. Parents will not need to be consulted when “civil rights” are in play, you see. And in many states, because Biden will insist on this, Medicaid will cover the cost.
And remember those teachers in California who were exposed for essentially stalking middle schoolers both in the hallways and online, to invite them to join the “gay straight alliance” school club? Such actions will no longer be unprofessional, suit-worthy education malpractice, but these teachers will become the community organizing arm of the school Title IX coordinator.
After schools fill these positions using federal dollars, he/she/they/“zem”/ “hir” will be universally obeyed and universally feared. Referring to your sons and daughters, “Go get ‘em,” will be the operating philosophy.
And who will be the first students targeted for private intervention? Will it be the kids from the family with the rainbow flag on their front porch, or the children of the mom who speaks out against third grade classes reading Jacob’s New Dress?
I think we know the answer.
People need to flood the public comment page, and also, speak up at local school board meetings. Other parents need to be put on notice about what’s coming. Also, contact your state attorney general. Many government officials, commentators and groups have already taken action to stand against this proposed tyranny.
The outcry against this reckless, anti-child order is tremendous. Let’s keep it up, petitioning our government and our omnipotent Almighty God to stop this insanity.
