Biden’s Department of Education plans to enact new rule changes to civil rights law this May that would end free speech as Americans have known it. Then changes would inject gender ideology straight into the heart of Title IX of the Civil Rights Act by erasing the Supreme Court’s long-standing distinction between protected speech and punishable conduct.

Under the proposed rule, students and faculty can violate Title IX simply for refusing to use someone else’s preferred pronouns. Title XI has typically been reserved for incidents of sexual assault or harrassment but under the Biden administration it could be reported for mere speech. This administration will set legal precedent ablaze and steamroll arguably our nation’s most foundational principle.
