A grassroots organization is making its last ditch effort to shut down the Biden administration’s proposed changes to Title IX.

The Department of Education (DOE) unveiled plans in June to revise Title IX to prohibit schools from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Heritage Action has launched a comment portal for those to voice their opposition to Title IX revisions, which garnered more than 11,000 comments, representing at least 10% of all comments submitted, according to a press release obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. .

“You’d think it was just the parents, wouldn’t you?” Just parents worrying about their kids, especially girls playing sports, but it’s actually much broader than that,” Heritage Action executive director Jessica Anderson told DCNF. “It’s activists of all ages, backgrounds and stages of life who see a huge overreach from the Ministry of Education with this potential new role, how it’s going to put women’s safety at risk, women’s private life and then all the components of the scholarship that would be a major consequence of this role.

According to the reviews, every gender-segregated space, including locker rooms and bathrooms, should be open to those who identify as a gender different from their biological sex. The same would apply to sports, letting biological men compete against women if it best suits their gender identity and allowing biological women to compete against biological men if it best suits their gender identity.

In previous efforts, Heritage Action received 5,000 comments for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) climate disclosure rule as the Title IX effort more than doubled in size, according to the release. press obtained by the DCNF. The deadline for submitting comments against the Title IX revisions is September 12.

Heritage Action’s toolkit for stopping Title IX reviews details how the proposal will harm women, including children, and women’s safety. The toolkit explains that up to 98% of children come to terms with their gender in adulthood if they struggle with their identity.

The organization also provides information on the “Protection of Women and Girls In Sports Act” which was introduced in Congress by Florida Republican Rep. Greg Steube in January. The law aims to ensure females only have to compete with other biological females, blocking some of the DOE’s Title IX reviews.

Action Patrimoine key voted “yes”, an effort to highlight the importance of the legislation bill, the organization told DCNF.

“Fifty years of equality for women on the sports field would be destroyed by what this administration wants to do in Title IX,” Steube told DCNF. “If successful, President Biden’s rescinding of Title IX protections for women would be a slap in the face for every female athlete. I can’t stress enough how drastic this proposal is: it effectively nullifies biological sex – on teams, in locker rooms, in dorms, and in scholarship selections.

Heritage Action plans to continue its efforts against Title IX by highlighting the stories of those affected by proposed revisions to Title IX, the organization told DCNF. The organization expects the Biden administration to be less likely to move forward with Title IX revisions as the 2022 midterm elections approach.

“I’ve been so encouraged that activists are accepting and acknowledging that they too can push back against the Biden regime by submitting comments,” Anderson told DCNF. “They engage in such a throaty way.”
