In June, following the misguided Bostock decision, LFF sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Education, in coordination with other family policies around the United States, asking the Department to continue enforcement of Title IX, and protect women’s sports.
The court decision, the Department said, was narrowly issued under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which pertains only to the workplace, and, thus, it bears no influence on the way the Department will enforcement of Title IX.
Translation: the U.S. Department of Education can and will continue to make the distinction between actual biological females and biological men who attempt to identify as such.
You can read the full letter from the U.S. Department of Education here.
This letter is a big deal; it validates, in many ways, the work that family policy organizations have done to ensure that biology isn’t made a victim of social experimentation or political correctness and reaffirms the truth of male and female distinction.
Make no mistake: your vote this fall will determine who is to run the U.S. Department of Education and who is to decide if the law should acknowledge that the distinction between male and female exists.

A federal judge is set to hear arguments over Louisiana’s 2020 elections plan. Republicans say the plan allows for voters to vote safely at the polls; Democrats say that they should be allowed to mail in ballots without restrictions. This is among the first election-related cases that is likely to plague the country over the next six months.
Facebook has jumped into the election influence battle, stating they plan to ban new political ads within the last week of the campaign. This means that candidates will not be able to defend themselves against false information and is a dangerous development in the tech sector’s bid to influence the election against President Trump.
