Federal Judge Blocks Biden’s Transgender Protections Under Title IX

Temporary Block on the Final Title IX Rule

A federal judge has temporarily blocked the Education Department’s final Title IX rule, which prohibits discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. This decision was issued by Chief Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana in an order on Thursday. He stated that Title IX, a federal education law that bars sex-based discrimination, “was written and intended to protect biological women from discrimination.”

Interpretation of the Original Intent of Title IX

“Such purpose makes it difficult to sincerely argue that, at the time of enactment, ‘discrimination on the basis of sex’ included gender identity, sex stereotypes, sexual orientation, or sex characteristics,” wrote Doughty, a Trump appointee. “Enacting the changes in the Final Rule would subvert the original purpose of Title IX.”
