Federal judge blocks Biden Title IX rule in 4 states: 'Abuse of power'
"This case demonstrates the abuse of power by executive federal agencies in the rulemaking process," Doughty said in his ruling. "The separation of powers and system of checks and balances exist in this country for a reason."

A
federal judge has blocked  President Biden's  expansion of Title IX in four states, calling the mandatory gender identity protections an "abuse of power."

U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty granted a preliminary injunction on Thursday, and referred to the Biden administration's unilateral Title IX changes as a "threat to democracy."

"This case demonstrates the abuse of power by executive federal agencies in the rulemaking process," Doughty said in his ruling. "The separation of powers and system of checks and balances exist in this country for a reason."

Doughty ruled that the changes were inadmissible because the term "gender discrimination" as used in the establishment of Title IX "only included discrimination against biological males and females at the time of enactment."

Doughty ruled that the changes were inadmissible because the term "gender discrimination" as used in the establishment of Title IX "only included discrimination against biological males and females at the time of enactment."

The ruling blocks implementation of the changes in Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana and Idaho.

Title IX is a longstanding civil rights law prohibiting sex-based discrimination in schools and other education centers that receive federal funding. 

Under the  administration's new rules , sex discrimination would include discrimination based on gender identity as well as sexual orientation. 

The latest update, from April, expands the definition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity – a move that critics say  would undermine  hard-won protections for women and girls. 

A school would not be able to separate or treat people differently based on sex, except in limited circumstances, under the provisions. 

Critics say that the change will allow locker rooms and bathrooms to be based on gender identity.

LGBTQ+ students who face discrimination would be entitled to a response from their school under Title IX, and those failed by their schools can seek recourse from the federal government.

Advocates have hailed the change as necessary to protect transgender students. The rule is set to take effect Aug. 1.

Lawsuits against the Biden administration's changes  — similar to the Louisiana case — are underway in states across the country.

Both Obama and now Biden have tried to expand/corrupt the meaning of Title IX. 


Once again, Biden is caught up trying to be a dictator.

And they worry about Trump becoming a dictator.

Hell, we've already got one, with all his EO's and these illegal rules changes.

The really heinous thing with this is ….. near silence coming from Title IX proponents.     Specifically, the women who Title Nine was designed to protect and who fought for it.

I’m very confident we have more than one of those here.

Near silence ……
