Title IX Rant: The way you like it - all over the map!

Title IX activist Janet Judge "helped" URI with their decision on cutting men's swimming.

Many of these activists aren't concerned with equal opportunities, which is what Title IX is supposed to be all about. Instead, they use Title IX as a weapon in their bid for revenge.

Check out this interview and see what I mean. She was wronged in Little League baseball and junior high cross country. Now she's helping the feminists turn the tables on the males.

I wonder if Janet would feel the same if her children were boys who wanted to swim or rassle in college...

Read an article from 2003 on NOW's site featuring comments from Judge, Donna Lopiano, and others here.

A pal asked me in an e-mail what I think will happen when the pendulum swings back the other way. In other words, what will we hear from these same activists when (not if) the current undergraduate gender imbalance (substantially more women than men) evens out.

How will they deal with having women's sports cut?

What happens when their quota system begins to work against them?

We've already seen what they'll do. They'll scream bloody murder!

Back on January 30, I posted on the University of Cincinnati vs. the Title IX activists. The university dropped women's crew to club status. Read about it here.

What the hell is she talking about?

Read between the lines:

If you are white and a male you are evil.

Hillary and Obama rolled into one.

You think men's swimming is the olny thing in the scope? Watch out.

you can fool all of the people some of the time and it only takes one time.

Title IX is not to blame...Athletic Departments who cannot control their budgets are to blame. I feel for the female sports that are only there because they legally have to be...

I get a little tired of hearing people blame females for wanting an opportunity the same way men do. The problem does not lie with the females though. Blaming the womens team isn't going to solve anything. Getting administration to own up to the fact that they dont know how to effectively spend their budget each year is the problem...
