Title IX educational amendment of 1972 prohibited sex discrimination in federally funded education programs. It gave girls and women a fair and equal chance to compete. Today, title IX protections, meant to honor and protect girls, is being overturned. His first day in office, Biden signed an executive order that claims to prevent and combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation, but what it really does is discriminate against biological females.
This order proves what we've been expecting: The Biden administration is going to prioritize forcing schools to allow biological males to compete in women's sports and allow them to access women's private spaces.
This executive order infringes on the rights of our biological girls. It assaults them physically and psychologically. It puts our girls' dignity is at stake. It means that young, biological girls, who are at the very vulnerable stage of development socially will be forced to disrobe in front of young, biological boys. We're sacrificing them for the sake of another struggle - and that is ethically wrong. Rather than give them the message that they matter, we're delivering the message that they are less-than.
The effects of this order on our educational system should be a concern to everyone - but if you don't have kids in school, don't check out, because this executive order will effect everyone in some way:
-The privacy of single-sex bathrooms will be effected.
-Faith-based organizations that are government grantees or contractors will be effected.
-It will force hospitals to disregard medical science.
-It will force business owners to act against their own consciences.
-And so much more.
Boys are girls are different. That difference is designed by God. It is beautiful and should be celebrated, protected and honored.

Remember, there are two kinds of fire in the world: One that burns and consumes and one that burns and empowers. May God's word and God's love burn brightly in you, giving you the strength to face any fire. Until next time, little embers!
