U.S. Congresswoman Mary Miller (Illinois-R) has introduced a bill to protect students’ bodily privacy from the White House’s recent transgenderist interpretation of Title IX.
Congresswoman Mary Miller introduced the “Safety and Opportunity for Girls Act,” her first bill, last Friday. According to Miller’s press release, the bill would “clarify that nothing in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 can be interpreted to give the Biden Administration the authority to prohibit schools from maintaining sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms, sports teams, and academic programs.”
“The bill adds a clear definition of sex to Title IX to clarify that ‘sex’ means biological sex, not gender identity,” the statement continued.
Miller said she introduced the bill to protect single-sex spaces for young women like her own daughters.
“Democrats continue to push radical gender ideology on our children, and we must draw the line to protect women and girls,” the congresswoman said.
“On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order to interpret Title IX as requiring schools to allow access to sex-segregated spaces and activities based on gender identity. But Title IX was created to enhance opportunities for women, not threaten their safety,” she continued.
“This is why I’m sponsoring the Safety and Opportunity for Girls Act. I want to make it clear that the definition of sex in Title IX means biological sex, not gender identity. My goal is to protect spaces like bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams for women like my five daughters, and so many others across the country.”
On Friday, the bill had 21 co-sponsors, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who said that Bidens’s executive order against discrimination based on so-called gender identity is a violation of women’s rights.
“As a former competitive athlete and a mother to a daughter who is a D1 collegiate athlete, I staunchly oppose biological males in girls/women’s sports, locker rooms, and bathrooms,” Greene said. “Joe Biden’s executive order completely violates women’s rights in every way. I’m proud to cosponsor Congresswoman Miller’s legislation to reverse this disgusting attack on women and girls.”
Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) stated that it is “more important now than ever” to protect women-only spaces in schools.
“Between the Democrats passage of the ‘Non-equality’ Equality Act and President Biden’s Executive Orders on sexual orientation and gender identity, it is more important now than ever to protect spaces for women and girls in Title IX schools,” Clyde said. “All members of Congress — Republican and Democrat alike — should protect the decades of progress we have made in securing women’s rights.”
“Unfortunately, the Democrats’ radical agenda seeks to reverse that progress,” he added. “I commend Congresswoman Miller for her leadership on this issue and I am proud to be an original co-sponsor of this legislation.”
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said that protecting girls from “dangerous Democrat policies” is one of her top priorities.
“No high school athlete should have to look behind her back while changing in the locker room to make sure there isn’t a confused man catching a peek, and she also shouldn’t be afraid of being hurt while competing in sports,” she said.
