WASHINGTON, D.C. – Multiple organizations have petitioned the Biden Administration to reconsider its plans to allow transgender, male-to-female athletes to participate in sports with biological women and to share the same locker rooms before and after sporting events.
Biden’s Education Department proposed changes to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 – which prohibits sex discrimination in any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance – to include “gender identity.” New regulations that the department will introduce soon will further amend Title IX to allow for trans athletes to participate on women’s sport teams.
In response to this proposed change, 28 groups – made up of lawyers, sex experts, parents, civil rights groups and education officials – sent a letter to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona on Tuesday, saying that the upcoming changes to Title IX represent “unfair” and “illegal” treatment to biological females who wish to compete in school sports.
“The Department does not have the legal authority to issue regulations that would subvert rather than fulfill the requirements of Title IX by permitting or requiring biological males who identify as females to compete in sex-separated women’s sports and to use the intimate facilities and shared spaces of female students,” the letter reads. “We anticipate that the coming rulemaking on athletics will similarly conflate gender identity with Title IX’s sex-based protections and degrade those very protections.”

Prior to the President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address earlier this month, NCAA swimmer and All-American athlete, Riley Gaines, was highly critical of his admin’s efforts to include trans athletes in women’s sports, saying that they possess unfair advantages that will enable them to take opportunities away from female competitors.
“I am truthfully intrigued as to how he will address the state of our nation. What is the state of our nation? What’s the condition of it?” she said.
