PLF’s Joshua Thompson Takes on the Title IX Blog
When anyone asks me what our adversaries are like in the Title IX reform debate, I always tell them to take a close look at the Title IX Blog. The critical difference there: the authors don’t allow any outsiders to leave comments on their blog posts. It’s almost as if they’re afraid of free and open debate about the law and the damage it’s doing at colleges and high schools around the country.
“The Council fully embraces the intent of Title IX: to prohibit intentional discrimination based on sex, and eliminate from federally funded education all sex-based ‘quotas’ and ‘percentage balances. … The Council believes that the manner in which Title IX is now being enforced by the Department should be reformed, so that the law can continue to provide enforcement for eliminating intentional discrimination, but also so that agency interpretation no longer compels discriminatory quotas.”
After PLF and the American Sports Council made waves announcing their lawsuit concerning the application of sex-based quotas on American high schools, the proponents of sex-based quotas have finally begun their counter-attack. Unsurprisingly, however, the response from the Title IX Blog is based solely on hyperbole, ad hominems, straw man arguments, and non sequiturs. I’ll point out some of the most egregious fallacies after the fold.
Safe to say, Joshua makes quick work of Ms. Newhall’s rebuttal. Read it all right now.
