The Truth Within the Lie

They sure hate to admit it, but Title IX activists know that men's sports are being harmed as a direct result of the way it's being enforced.

The latest to slip up and stray from the party line that "it's all about the money" is Diana Nyad.

She has strong opinions on athletic funding in colleges, saying that men's football and basketball should operate on their own budgets, and that would allow a number of men's sports, now relegated to club status, to make a reappearance.

"Like a lot of laws, like the Constitution itself, laws are instituted, and times change," she said. "Today, there are so many anecdotes of (men's) sports being dropped around the country, and it's just not because of Title IX.

"I'm not the only one who feels this way. Football and basketball should operate the way they do, and put aside all the rest of that pie, all the rest of the money that comes in through federal funding, and it should be divided equally among boys and girls sports, so we still have gymnastics, tennis, wrestling, what the men want to do, and all the things women want to do. Take football and basketball out of the equation.

"The law was never meant to take men away from playing sports."
