Students choose their own gender: Obama administration

The Obama administration has ordered schools that accept federal funding to allow people to attend single-sex lessons based on their self-identified “gender identity” rather than their biological sex, reports LifeSiteNews.

The Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights sent out a 36-page memo this week stating that under Title IX of the 1972 education amendments, "all students, including transgender students and students who do not conform to sex stereotypes, are protected from sex-based discrimination.

“Under Title IX, a recipient generally must treat transgender students consistent with their gender identity in all aspects of the planning, implementation, enrollment, operation, and evaluation of single-sex classes,” the memo added.

Eagle Forum President Phyllis Schlafly, however, said that the administration was misinterpreting Title IX. "I knew the author of Title IX, and there's no question that she simply wanted to give a fair break to girls, and get what they are entitled to. And there's no way would she have authorized [this], nor does the text of Title IX require mixing it up like that."

"I think they're crazy," Schlafly said about the Obama administration.

According to the Department of Education's website, Title IX, which is part of the Education Amendments of 1972 and was updated in 1998, says the following: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Under the Obama administration, this has been expanded to cover “transgendered” students -- boys and men who identify as female, and girls and women who identify as male.
