Biden Backs Virginia Students Protesting Glenn Youngkin's LGBTQ Policies
Glenn Youngkin's reversal of transgender protections and his new LGBTQ school policies.During Tuesday's press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that although she hasn't read the reports of the mass walkout, President Joe Biden continues to support the LGBTQ community and is "always proud to speak out against the mistreatment of that community.""He believes transgender youth should be allowed to be able to go to school freely, to be able to express themselves freely, to be able to have the protections that they need to be who they are," Jean-Pierre told reporters.Students at nearly 100 middle and high schools walked out on Tuesday after Youngkin released guidelines earlier this month that would require students to use restrooms, pronouns and names based on their official school record—unless there is a parental sign-off—and would limit student-athletes from only playing on sports teams of their biological sex.Youngkin, who replaced former Democratic Governor Ralph Northam in 2021, largely won on a platform that championed parents' rights and argued that parents should have greater input on their children's education.Despite the pushback that his policies have faced from students across Virginia, Youngkin has insisted that public schools follow the new guidelines and defended the revisions as benefitting parents in the state."Parents should be absolutely at the center of this discussion with their children, who they have known since before they were born," the governor told WJLA-TV on Monday. "And I think this is for the child's best interest for the family's best interest.
Louisiana Public Schools to Reject Protections for LGBTQ Students
Just two months after President Joe Biden announced steps to increase federal protections for the LGBTQ community, it appears public schools in Louisiana will be refusing to implement policies protecting LGBTQ students that would comply with guidance from the U.S. Department of Education.As part of a larger executive order, Biden directed the Education Department to form a working group aimed at advancing pro-LGBTQ policies in schools, in the name of creating “safe and inclusive learning environments in which all students thrive.”The extent of those policies may vary, but will largely embrace the principle that LGBTQ students, especially transgender students, are protected from discrimination under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, a federal law prohibiting sex-based discriminatory practices in taxpayer-funded schools.Last year, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, citing the legal logic underlying a landmark LGBTQ rights case from 2020, clarified that anti-LGBTQ discrimination is inherently a form of sex-based discrimination.In issuing his executive order, Biden noted that over 300 proposed anti-LGBTQ laws have been introduced over the past year, many of which specifically target transgender children and their parents “by banning access to medical care and support at school.” The order, and the formation of the working group focused on pro-LGBTQ policies, were intended to provide a framework with which to implement the principles previously outlined by Cardona.But many social conservatives, including Louisiana state officials, disagree with the premise that Title IX applies to any situation besides those explicitly dealing with a person’s assigned sex at birth.
