    Yeah thats right. I said it. A democrat against Title 9 for college athletics.

    Look I believe that government should make laws that protects citizens. And I believe that Title 9 had some good intentions but now its had unintended consequences. Womens sports rarely draw a crowd and use many of the revenue from football and basketball to run their department.

    Now I think equal funding for high school is necessary but by making things equal for womens sports, you limit the opportunity for other males. Their is no way you can justify that 1 womens sport deserves the same funding as football.

    Title IX has NOTHING to do with how much each sport is funded with. It simply states that for each male sport offered, a female sport much also be offered. Of course not even at the high school level is girl's softball given the same funding as football.

    Poor thread.

    Title IX has had an enormous impact on womens sports. It has been reflected in US Olympic success. Mens football and basketball seem to be doing just fine

    The only time I have a problem with Title IX is when you have a school which has men interested in a sport but they can't field a team because that school doesn't have enough women interested in a corresponding sport. That isn't right. Nobody should have to not be able to compete in a sport because of a situation like that.

    Overall, the gloom and doom predicted when Title IX was passed never happened

    No of course not, and repealing it wouldn't accomplish a damn thing, I was merely pointing out that there are times when Title IX is bullshit.

    None of this would have been possible without Title IX
