From the President's Blog: Let the Public Debate on Sex and Gender Begin

Two thumbs up for President Trump’s sensible decision to reverse the Obama administration’s unprecedented, unlawful edict on transgender students.

Those decrying this decision as discriminatory and oppressive should actually read the letter the Obama administration issued last May if they want to see what discriminatory and oppressive action looks like!

Institutions like Ave Maria University received this federal directive, with the seals of both the U.S. Department of Justice and Education adorning the masthead, entitled, “Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students.” The communication ominously began that the “guidance” it was providing would be the basis for evaluating whether a university was compliant with their mandated interpretation of Title IX’s provisions dealing with sex discrimination.

The new dogma that demanded adherence? “Gender identity refers to an individual’s internal sense of gender. A person’s gender identity may be different from or the same as the person’s sex assigned at birth.” It continues, “Harassment that targets a student based on gender identity, transgender status, or gender transition is harassment based on sex, and the Departments enforce Title IX accordingly.” Here the Obama administration was threatening any institution that adhered to an interpretation of what for millennia has been the standard for distinguishing between males and females, with the withdrawal of student eligibility for Federal grants and loans. The message was clear: share our beliefs or we will shut you down.
