The NCAA won't punish Catholic universities and colleges that file for exemptions from gender identity provisions in Title IX.
LGBT groups sent a letter signed by over 80 “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ), sports, religious and youth advocacy groups” to the NCAA on March 9.
In the letter the LGBT group pleaded with the National Collegiate Athletic Association to “take action to divest from all religious based campuses who have requested discriminatory Title IX waivers toward LGBTQ youth.”
An excerpt from the letter states:
“The Title IX waiver allows campus administrators to deny transgender students admission, usage of public accommodations, and protections against anti-LGBTQ actions from students and faculty — all based on a student’s gender identity."
Title IX, which was signed into law in 1972, originally prohibited schools from denying admission to biological women. But the law was obfuscated in 2014 by politically correct politicians to include gender identity protection for trannies who think they are women.
In a response to the LGBT groups, the NCAA wrote: “While it is not our role to tell schools whom they should admit, the goal of higher education is to promote students making a decision based on their decision to evaluate multiple schools to find one that best meets their needs to be successful.” *
In other words, if a male student prefers to dress up in feminine clothing, he should apply to a school that doesn't finds his lifestyle offensive. (bold emphasis mine)
