Title IX transgender protections challenged by Five Republican-led states in lawsuit against Biden

Five Republican-led states are suing the Biden administration over expanding Title IX to protect transgender students from sex-based discrimination. The lawsuit argues the rule exceeds the Education Department’s authority and redefines sex to include gender identity. Additional Republican officials in other states have spoken out against the new rules. The Education Department’s 2021 guidance, now codified into Title IX rules, aimed to protect LGBTQ students from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The new rules do not specifically address trans students’ participation in school sports, though a proposed rule would permit some restrictions in elite levels of competition.
