How the Trump Administrationā€™s Attacks on Title IX Hurt LGBTQ Survivors

Education Secretary Betsy DeVosā€™ latest proposed Title IX guidelines continue the Trump administrationā€™s attack on LGBTQ rightsā€”and leave transgender and queer students in danger.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement’s explosion, LGBTQ activists organized #WerkForConsent, a protest of the Trump administration’s anti-queer, anti-trans and anti-survivor policies. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ latest proposed changes to Title IX will only exacerbate the issues they raised. (Ted Eytan / Creative Commons)

Title IX, a groundbreaking 1972 civil rights law, protects students from denial to access to education on the basis of sex. The law originally sought to allow female students more opportunities to pursue education in fields that had traditionally been closed to women, like law and medicine. Title IX provides protection on the basis of sex that works in tandem with other civil rights such as protection from racial discrimination (Title VII) and protection for people with disabilities (Title II).

Since then, Title IX has been responsible for ensuring that schools have sports programs that people of all genders can participate inā€”guaranteeing access to benefits, programs and activities that are part and parcel of receiving an education and ensuring that students can obtain an education without enduring sexual harassment and abuse.

Though DeVos and the Department of Education purport to care about survivors, the changes they seek to make to Title IX show that survivors, particularly survivors who are not straight or cisgender, are at the bottom of their list of concerns.Ā Higher up on that list? Saving schools money, protecting rapists and abusers, restricting access to healing and justice through Title IX protections for survivors and “religious freedom”ā€”theĀ calling card for the right which has permeated nearly every regulation put forth by the Trump administration.

The administration’s changes to Title IX are no exception. Under DeVos’ proposed rules, schools can opt out of Title IX enforcement entirely without notifying her department, leaving students in the dark about whether their schools protect their equal access to educationā€”or not.Ā You read that right: The Trump administration wants to allow schools that receive federal funding to opt out of protecting students without telling students. Or their own officers. Or anyone.

Title IX is far from perfectā€”butĀ the law has advanced and fostered equitable access to education for people of all genders andĀ given survivors of sexual violence a means of addressing harm with their institutions to seek the relief they deserve to continue to learn.

Then came Betsy DeVos.

Since her appointment in Fall 2017, the Education Secretary has done everything in her power to turn back the clock on the advancements made by Title IXā€”with a specific eye towards ignoring, erasing and disempowering LGBTQ communities. DeVos immediately rolled back Obama-era guidance on transgender inclusion, making schools more dangerous for LGBTQ students. Schools are no longer advised to use the name and pronoun of studentsā€™ choosing, to allow students to attend school events like prom dressed in the attire that most fits their chosen gender presentation or to let students use the bathroom of their choice.

That was just the beginning.Ā The Trump administration’s latest proposed changes to Title IX are horrifyingā€”restricting reportable harassment to conduct that occurs on campus, limiting who students can report harassment to, requiring named harassers and rapists to potentially cross-examine survivors during live hearingsĀ and more. While these and other proposed changes are harmful to all students, none of the changes operate as the free pass to discriminate against LGBTQ students like the religious exemption.

Imagine that a queer student chooses to pursue their college degree at an institution that aligns with their religious denomination, and even though nothing in the admissions material or student handbook says that LGBTQ students are not welcome, this student gets harassed in class one day for being queer. Perhaps another student makes offensive comments about this studentā€™s sexuality or appearance; perhaps other students join in; perhaps this goes on for days, then weeks, until the student no longer feels safe going to class. Knowing this is a violation of their Title IX rights, the student reports this conduct to their school through the proper channels.

Now, imagine that the school receives this complaintā€”but decides that protecting students from harassment because of their sexuality is not in line with the schoolā€™s religious values. Under the proposed guidelines, the school cites a religious exemption and the case is dismissed. The student gets no relief from harassment, and no professors, students or administrators are disciplined for committing or allowing this conduct.

Not convinced? Consider another dangerous scenario:Ā Imagine what happens to a student who is assaulted by another student at a school which has a code of conduct explicitly prohibiting homosexuality. If their assault included a sexual act that would be considered homosexual conduct, the survivor can file a complaintā€”but the school can then dismiss it, citing a religious exemption, and the student could be disciplined. In situations like these, survivors must face not only the repercussions of violence, but the risk of being outed, disciplined and otherwise further traumatized.

But it gets worse. Imagine that a student did not choose a religiously affiliated school, but is attending because they are a legacy student or it is the only school that offered enough financial aidā€”and when harassment occurs, this student is expelled for disclosing their gender identity.Ā Imagine that the student is in sixth grade, is transgender and is bullied for using the bathroom of their choice.Ā Imagine that they are a queer athlete recruited to play on a Division I basketball team, but lose their spot after they are outed when filing a Title IX complaint.Ā Imagine that they are bisexual and afraid to report their assault by a person of a different gender for fear they will be more likely to be disciplined due to systemic homophobia.

This is the reality under DeVosā€™ guidelines.Ā The proposed rule gives schools a free pass to discriminate and block access to civil rights protections for trans and queer students.Ā The Departmentā€™s no-notice religious exemption is an escape hatchā€”schools claim the exemption after a report and evade any responsibility.

The good news is that the no-notice religious exemption is not yet the law. The Department of Education is legally required to hear feedback from the public on the proposed rule through a process known as notice-and-comment, and the comment period is open now for these proposed changes to Title IX and continues through January 28. The Department must respond to comments, and the text of the proposed law can still be changed if we make our voices heard.

LGBTQ youth deserve better. Queer and trans students are not an exception or an anomaly. We are here and we will not be erased.Ā Tell Betsy DeVos to keep her #HandsOffIX using the notice-and-comment tools and resources provided by End Rape on Campus and Know Your IX.Ā Visit HandsOffIX.org for resources.

B. Ever Hanna, Esq. is theĀ Campus Policy Manager at End Rape on Campus.

Kim Woodburn reveals Iā€™m A Celeb crew in camp lurk in the bushes ready to stop snake attacks

I’M A Celebrity has employed “hundreds” of security staff to crawl through the bush and stop venomous snakes reaching stars in camp.

Kim Woodburn, 76, appeared in the show in 2009 along with Katie Price and winner Gino D’Acampo, and said they felt safe when they spotted snake hunters on their rounds.

Skilled handlers jumped into action if a celeb was in danger, asĀ Kim exclusively told The Sun: “You don’t see anybody when you’re there, but there are hundreds of security people throughout the jungle in camouflage equipment

“On your way to that dunny that stinks to high heaven, you might see one in the bushes.

“They are there because if you see a snake, or anything you think is frightening you shout “snake!” and you know that they are in that spot in a second.”

The likes of Fleur East, Emily Atack and Sair Khan signed up this year and have been shut off from the world.

Kim said they’ll soon get used to being blanked by crew members too, as the production team is banned from speaking to them.

She added: “The only other time you would see anybody is when they tell you to come up to the bushes and you’ll find a couple of chaps in camouflage and they want to change your battery.

“You turn round, he doesn’t say a word. You say thank you, he doesn’t say thank you back, and down you walk.”

Kim’s insight comes after former I’m A Celeb runner up Jake Quickenden said the staff fear getting sacked if they open their mouths.

He said the novelty of sleeping in the jungle is about to wear off as the conditions become dire, telling The Sun: “People start getting hungry, then if it rains people start getting moody.

“Even when you walk into trials the cameramen don’t speak to you. You are that shut off from the world.

“I remember asking one of them ‘Do you know what the Man United score was at the weekend?’ and they said ‘Jake we’re not allowed to speak to you.’

“One of them was eating a Tic Tac and I said, ‘Mate, I couldn’t have a Tic Tac could I?’ And he was like ‘ I can’t give you a Tic Tac I’ll get sacked.’

“I said, ‘you’ll get sacked over a tic tac?’ All I wanted was a different taste in my mouth. My mouth was dry for the whole time. You’re not drinking cold water, it’s always hot because you’re boiling it.

“My wee was like golden syrup by the end of it.”
