This past June, “in celebration” of the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the US Department of Education released their proposed changes to Title IX regulations – changes that would dramatically alter the future for women and girls in federally funded activities and programs.  One of the most profound impacts would be found in schools.  Their proposal?  Change the long-standing definition of “sex” to include “sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics (including intersex traits), pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity.”

The impact of such a definition change would:

  • usurp and violate parental rights,
  • in effect, eliminate female-only sports,
  • diminish opportunities and scholarships put in place specifically for females,
  • put women and girls in greater danger,
  • reinforce harmful gender ideology in educational curriculum,
  • curtail free speech by broadening the definition of sexual harassment, and
  • eliminate a series of due process protections.

The impact of such changes will negatively impact privacy protections, altering education and sports programs and activities, reduce opportunities, including for scholarships, for our daughters and granddaughters, while negatively impacting the identity of our children as boys and girls, and increasing the social phenomenon of gender dysphoria.

But you can do something to help – and it will only take a few minutes!

The Department of Education is required to “take comment” regarding the proposed changes. They’ve created a portal to submit your comment(s) and anyone can – and should – give comment.

The comments must be submitted by September 12, 2022.

United Families International has made the process even more simple.  We’ve created a webpage with background information, specific instructions for submitting, and talking points to help you write an effective comment.

We at United Families are often questioned: “What can I do to help defend the family?” This is a great opportunity.  Please let your voice be heard.  Go to this webpage and get started, right now.

We are working together to defend the family, and we hope you’ll join us.
