Georgia Attorney General Challenges Title IX Revisions Allowing Male Participation in Women’s Sports

Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, along with his counterparts from Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina, has filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration’s revised Title IX rule. The suit challenges provisions that allow biological males to compete in women’s sports and require shared bathrooms between males and females.

Carr stated, “The Biden administration is destroying women’s sports by gutting commonsense provisions that protect female athletes and demanding that biological males be allowed to compete against females.” The lawsuit aims to defend women’s rights to fair competition and opposes the redefinition of “sex” to include “gender identity” and “sexual orientation.”

Carr had previously opposed this rule when it was first introduced in July 2022, garnering significant bipartisan opposition. Joining Carr in the lawsuit are several organizations, including the Independent Women’s Law Center, the Independent Women’s Network, Parents Defending Education, and Speech First, Inc.
