“President Biden, in an executive order aimed at “preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation,” is calling on schools across the country to allow transgender athletes to participate in the sport of their gender identity,” according to Fox News. [emphasis added]
“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 new order, released on the first day of his presidency.
“The order is a strong signal that the Justice Department is going to enforce it via Title IX — and schools that don’t comply risk losing funding. [emphasis added]
“The order also calls for equal treatment “regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation” in the workplace and in health care settings. “All persons should receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation,” the order states.”
