While Democrats celebrate Title IX, as they did last month for the 50th anniversary, their priorities show it has amounted to empty words. On Tuesday, however, Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) and Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) filed a discharge petition for Rep. Stuebe's bill, the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2021This will give the Title IX protections some real teeth.

The discharge petition would force Steube's bill to come to the House floor to be considered if 218 members were to sign onto it. If all 209 Republican members signed on, nine Democratic members would also need to sign on.

The bill, which was introduced by Rep. Steuebe on January 21, 2021, aims "To provide that for purposes of determining compliance with title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in athletics, sex shall be recognized based solely on a person’s reproductive biology and genetics at birth."

And I always say that to people because they’re like, ‘Well, anybody can get through this fence.’ And I’m like, well actually, I would be hesitant to drive a tank through it...I usually say that when I’m debating someone on walls or fences or barriers if you will,” Texas National Guard Public Affairs Officer Major Michael Perry told Townhall. “The wall works.” Read more here.
