Title IX is about to undergo some changes.
According to Reason, the Department of Education will be changing the way that sexual misconduct investigations are handled. The new rules “will permit colleges to adopt higher evidentiary standards in hearings, mandate cross-examination of relevant parties in a dispute, and stress that all students are considered innocent until proven guilty.”
If the new rules are approved, they will also allow presentation of evidence from both the victim and the accused.
They’d also like to change the definition of sexual harassment to “unwelcome conduct on the basis of sex that is so severe, pervasive and objectively offensive that it denies a person access to the school’s education program or activity,”
Feminists are already mad, because women should always be believed and the accused are always guilty.
@BetsyDeVos Shame on you for your proposed changes to Title IX policies! You, nor anyone you love, have obviously never been one of the 1 in 4 women who have been a victim of sexual harassment/abuse 😥😥😥

Good afternoon, @BetsyDeVosED. Why does your skewed version of civil rights involves removing rights from women, disabled people, and LGBTQ people while supporting campus sexual assaulters? Shouldn’t people have a right to go to class without being attacked?
