ACLU Suggests Title IX Proposal ‘Inappropriately’ Favors The Accused

Daily Caller: The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is receiving pushback after suggesting a U.S. Department of Education proposal for Title IX reform “inappropriately” favored the accused, on Twitter Friday.

The DOE released a proposal Friday with sweeping changes to Title IX, a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in education programs receiving government financial assistance. Changes ranged from narrowing the definition of “sexual harassment” to stronger protections for the accused.

“It promotes an unfair process, inappropriately favoring the accused and letting schools ignore their responsibility under Title IX to respond promptly and fairly to complaints of sexual violence,” the ACLU tweeted Friday.

Title IX is a federal statute passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972.

“Far too many students have been forced to go to court to ensure their rights are protected because the Department has not set out legally binding rules that hold schools accountable for responding to allegations of sexual harassment in a supportive, fair manner,” Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said in a statement.

The ACLU claimed in a thread of tweets that DeVos’s proposed rule would also “tip the scales against those who raise their voices” and make schools less safe for sexual assault survivors.   more here

  1. It’s like the ACLU has never heard of The Duke Lacrosse players case, Tawana Brawley, or even Judge Kavanaugh.

  2. ACLU has gone off the rails. Suddenly, with the election of Trump, they’re no longer for free speech or defendants’ civil rights. I wonder why that is…

  3. A ss-humpers

    The ACLU has been all about converting the nation’s youths to dykes and faggots for decades now.

  4. The ACLU is only in favor of those rights as promulgated and determined by Nazi collaborator George Garbagebag SORO’s!

  5. The ACLU was never an unbiased human rights defence organisation. They have never been supporters of an individual’s Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights, claiming that in a set of articles limiting government action, this one amendment gives the government rights instead of people’s rights against the government.
