DoE's redefining of Title IX to include LGBT identities held up in federal court

Published in Blog on July 20, 2022 by Article V Patriot

The Department of Education's new rule redefining Title IX to include gender identity was blocked on Friday by a federal judge in Tennessee.

A coalition of 20 states sued the Department of Education and government officials after it was announced that the DoE was redefining its interpretation of Title IX. Originally Title IX prohibited discrimination on the basis of sex within federally funded education programs, however, the Biden administration sought “to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The new interpretation meant schools across the nation would be required to comply with transgender policies in things like sports, housing, locker rooms and bathrooms. As if that wasn't an already disgusting move by Biden to push gender dysphoria onto children, public schools not in compliance were threatened with the revocation of federal funding for the free and reduced hot lunch meal program by the Department of Agriculture.

The arbitrary rule is just another step towards big government's tyrannical control over the people and the states. If the people of Ohio, Arizona, South Carolina or any other state don't want misguiding gender ideologies pushed onto their children, shouldn't that be up to the people and their state leaders – not the bureaucrats in Washington who want to control the minds of our youth? It's power abuse, indoctrination and an extremely coordinated attack on our culture, things politicians are good at when they have a specific agenda. 

But in a turn of events, the judge issued a preliminary injunction last week, meaning the administration can no longer enforce the rule until the lawsuit is resolved. 

"We are thankful the Court put a stop to it, maintained the status quo as the lawsuit proceeds, and reminded the federal government it cannot direct its agencies to rewrite the law,” said Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery III.

While the outcome of the lawsuit remains to be seen, the federal government is attempting to impose its own beliefs onto the states and the American people by redefining gender and sex. What happened to state power? It was overtaken by a runaway Congress and executive branch.

But a Convention of States can address this power abuse and bring control back to the local level, where it was always intended. Under Article V of the Constitution, the states can convene to propose amendments to the Constitution, such as term limits and budget requirements for the federal government.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
