  • Gov. Kristi Noem says she’s the victim of ‘conservative cancel culture’

    The Spectator’s Amber Athey reports that South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem says she’s the victim of “conservative cancel culture” over her opposition to a bill making its way through the state legislature to “promote continued fairness in women’s sports”

    In April 2011, an Assistant Secretary in the Obama administration’s Office for Civil Rights named Russlyn Ali sent a letter to college and university deans. The purpose of the letter, which began with the ostensibly courteous greeting, “Dear Colleague,” was to inform schools of the agency’s displeasure with the campus response to what it saw as a troubling “epidemic” of sexual violence and to give “guidance” about the procedures that institutions should follow to better protect students. Missives clarifying agency regulations are a fairly common, if tedious, form of bureaucratic communication in D.C., of interest to few people other than...
  • After Biden's transgender protections, MT lawmakers move to restrict participation in school sports

    On his first day in office, President Biden guaranteed new protections for the LGBTQ+ community under an executive order. But for transgender athletes, the move isn’t quite a victory. "Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports," reads the executive order "on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation." The administration concludes that under the Supreme Court’s reasoning in Bostock v. Clayton County, Title IX of the Education Amendments also prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity...
  • How Joe Biden Will Open The Floodgates To Transgendering Public Schools

    Because Democrats don't hesitate to use power even if they lack legitimacy, they will go farther than Obama did in pushing transgender ideology on American children over the next four years.The next several years are likely to reopen the floodgates to leftists’ long repurposing of public schools to indoctrinate children with lies about sex. According to leftist reporting, once in office Joe Biden plans to quickly use executive power to push transgenderism in schools, farther than President Obama did. In Congress, Democrats plan to prioritize legislation to do the same, potentially with Republican support, with the so-called Equality Act and...
  • Joe Biden’s Education Department Would Be A Radical Disaster

    Disaster The gravity of this issue is wildly out of proportion with the small amount of attention it's receiving in the broader conversation about this election. I took a train up to New York City the April after President Trump’s inauguration to cover a “Times Talk” discussion featuring Camille Paglia and Andy Cohen. Early in the event, Paglia said the moment she predicted Trump would win the 2016 election was when the Obama administration pushed transgender bathrooms. “There’s the election, right there,” she remembered thinking. That line stuck with me. It was, Paglia added, the “worst moment to approach a...
  • Biden v. the Courts on Title IX: Appellate rulings have shredded colleges for denying due-process protections—the same protections that the Democratic nominee promises to revoke.

    “Any number of federal constitutional and statutory provisions reflect the proposition that, in this country, we determine guilt or innocence individually—rather than collectively, based on one’s identification with some demographic group,” wrote U.S. Appeals Court Judge Raymond Kethledge in a late June opinion. “That principle has not always been perfectly realized in our Nation’s history, but as judges it is one that we take an oath to enforce.” Kethledge’s words revived a lawsuit filed by an Oberlin College student who claimed that his school had unfairly found him guilty of sexual misconduct. Over a 100-day period this summer, four appeals...

    Reuters ^ | August 28, 2020
    Boeing is seeking to increase black US employees throughout the company by 20 percent and mandate benchmarks for hiring people of color, Chief Executive Dave Calhoun told employees in a memo on Friday reviewed by Reuters. US corporations have become more responsive to complaints related to racial equality following a summer of sweeping anti-racism protests over the slaying of black people by police. The changes at Boeing, a stalwart defense contractor with its corporate headquarters in Chicago and largest factories in Washington state and South Carolina, appeared to mark the first concrete steps by the planemaker to address the issue....

    The superintendent of the City Schools of Decatur, a district of metropolitan Atlanta, secretly instituted a gender identity policy in 2016 allowing students of both sexes to enter any bathroom they chose. In November 2017, a kindergarten girl was allegedly sexually assaulted in her Decatur school bathroom by a boy who was allowed to be there because of that policy. After reporting the assault to district officials but getting little response, the girl’s mother, Pascha Thomas, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). OCR’s recently released findings illustrate the dangers and deception inherent...

    ... Once upon a time, long, long ago, those accused of rape or sexual harassment on campus were dealt with approximately as they would have been in any other non-university context. There would have been due process, the presumption of innocence, the right for the defense to confront the accuser, the right to an unbiased judge, the right for the defendant to hire a lawyer, and other such hoary traditions of justice. The underlying principle, then, was that it was better that 10 criminals go unpunished, than one innocent person be found guilty. But in 2011, a “Dear Colleague” Title...

    Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, the winner of 18 Grand Slam singles titles, has noted that, when it comes to competitive athletics, “sex segregation is the only way to achieve equality for girls and women.” That is because, on average, males are stronger, faster, and more powerful than females. And, yet, with the stroke of a pen, the United States Supreme Court last week called into question the legality of all sex-specific athletic teams. ... Many civil rights activists cheered the holding as a victory for the LGBTQ+ community. And, indeed, it is. ... Suppose, for example, a male student fails...

    Judge Chatigny has a track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes by imposing a speech code on their counsel. The year was 2010. President Barack Obama was in office, and Democrats controlled the Senate. Obama could practically get any judge he wanted, but he could not get his nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, Robert Chatigny, confirmed based on ChatignyÂ’s track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes...
  • New Title IX Regulations Restore Due Process–But There’s a Battle Ahead

    In the latest case where a male student sued his college over the unfair procedures it used to expel him, Colgate University in New York will go to trial. So ruled federal district judge Frederick Scullin on April 30. In his opinion, the plaintiff student had presented sufficient evidence of bias against him for the case to proceed. The case began in October 2016. At that time, Colgate, like all American colleges, was operating under the Title IX regulations instituted during the Obama administration. Those regulations, dictated through a mere “Dear Colleague” letter rather than formal administrative rulemaking, decreed that...

    When Chelsea Mitchell, ranked as the fastest girl in the 55-meter dash in Connecticut high school track, showed up for a competition last year, she knew it would be a challenge. Her competitors included two biological males who said they identify as girls. Mitchell, a senior at Canton High School, had seen the speeds posted by the two. She was aware that other girls had lost to athletes born as boys who identify as girls. But at the time, she says, she “could feel the adrenaline in my blood.” That adrenaline wasn’t enough, though. Mitchell came in third behind the...

    Florida Republican Congressman Greg Steube reports that not a single Democrat voted in favor of a bill that would protect women’s sports from biological males who claim to be transgender women. Steube, a former Army JAG officer and Iraq War veteran, recently introduced a bill that would have banned “schools from using Title IX federal funds to support women sports if biological men are allowed to compete with them.” “We are completely eroding what women sports are if we are going to allow biological men to compete with women in women’s collegiate activities. I filed pretty much what my bill...

    The rationale for the 2020 candidacy of former Vice President Joe Biden, a man who will be 78 years old on Inauguration Day, is that he is the great moderate hope. He is the man who will save the Democrats from their ever-leftward impulses by attracting the centrist voters who remain the majority of the electorate. But the key domestic initiative of his vice presidency was not middle-of-the-road at all. It was a declaration that the federal government must engage in a far-reaching, top-down intervention in the sexual interactions between young adults, setting new rules aimed at how students must...

In my graduate class, he had earned an 88.7 (a B+), but insisted he deserved an A. His grade was above the class average in my course. Both grade appeals were rejected by the dean. And then things got interesting. In short order, I was informed by the Office of Equal Opportunity Services that someone had filed a Title IX complaint against me. At that time, I...

    A federal district judge has allowed a male student’s defamation lawsuit against a female student who accused him of rape to survive a motion to dismiss. The male student, whom The Daily Wire will call John Doe, was accused of raping a female student, who shall henceforth be named Jane Roe. The two students attended Syracuse University. In 2017, the two attended a party at John’s fraternity, which was co-hosted by Jane’s sorority. Surveillance footage from the night showed the two students entering John’s room around 12:30 in the morning. The two awoke in the same bed the next morning,...

    A federal jury ruled in favor of the Boston College alumnus who had sued the University for improper interference in violation of fair process in his 2012 disciplinary hearing on Monday. The jury awarded the alumnus—referred to by the pseudonym “John Doe”—$102,426.50 in damages: $24,819.50 for tuition and fees for the semester he was suspended and $77,607 for one year of lost income as a result of his delayed graduation from BC. Doe brought the lawsuit after an Administrative Hearing Board found him responsible for sexually assaulting a fellow student on the annual AHANA Leadership Council Boat Cruise. Throughout the...

    Harvard University has suspended an economics professor accused of sexual harassment after a probe determined he “engaged in unwelcome conduct,” according to a report. Roland G. Fryer Jr., 42, was placed on a two-year administrative leave and his campus research lab will permanently shutter as a result of the investigation, the Harvard Crimson reported Wednesday.
