Your Questions About Title Ix

Betty asks…

Why do people say it violates Title IX if college football athletes are given a stipend?

Based on all of these incidents by agents I believe college football athletes of all schools and a certain division should be paid a stipend about the same maybe about $100,000.

It is a known fact that college football brings more revenue to schools than any other male sports or female sports so I find it silly for some to say it would discriminate against athletes of all other sports to play football players more when their sport brings in more revenue.

barry0912 answers:

Technically it wouldn’t, if you also paid some women’s athletes as well, although that would be difficult to afford. Title IX requires funding to fit the “Three-Prong Test” which goes as follows:

1. Prong one – Providing athletic participation opportunities that are substantially proportionate to the student enrollment, OR
2. Prong two – Demonstrate a continual expansion of athletic opportunities for the underrepresented sex, OR
3. Prong three – Full and effective accommodation of the interest and ability of underrepresented sex.

Credit must go to Wikipedia where I stole those from because it was easier than rewording it myself. Anyway, if any of those can be proven a school is in compliance with Title IX. It’s often stated funding for men’s and women’s sports has to be equal, which isn’t quite true, though that probably helps a school be considered in compliance. Scholarships usually are equal, which is why women actually have an easier time getting scholarships in most sports compared to men, as so much money already goes to football and basketball scholarships there are very few left over for other men’s sports, whereas women’s sports generally don’t bring in much money at all and can be more evenly distributed among the sports. And that, I think, is where this would fail Title IX. It would provide more money to male athletes female athletes wouldn’t have access to. Money taken in per sport doesn’t matter, gender alone matters. If money taken in per sport was the deciding factor most sports would cease to exist at the collegiate level because most sports don’t bring in a single cent of revenue.

(By the way, “underrepresented sex” really should be written “women.” Women’s sports can outnumber men’s sports and in fact SEC schools are required to have at least 2 more women’s sports than men’s. Men can be underrepresented with no penalty at all. But perhaps that’s an entirely different discussion.)

There are so many issues with paying football players it’s hard to know where to begin. Besides the simple fact schools probably couldn’t afford it, it would finally finish off amateurism for good in college football. It would probably actually negatively affect men’s sports more than women’s. So much money would be going to football other men’s sports would have to be shut down in order to pay for it and still not wipe out women’s athletics. It would potentially be the end of college athletics as we know it.

I personally would quit watching college football the day they pay the players more than they already get paid. Besides scholarships, you ought to see some of the things they get for free from schools. I had a roommate in college on the track and field team who had all sorts of duffel bags, notebooks, backpacks, etc. He could get directly from the school for free. If track and field athletes are getting that when they bring in a minimal amount of money I can’t imagine what the football players are getting.

Charles asks…

How does the elimination of 171 boy’s wrestling teams (Thanks to Title IX) equal “gender equality”?

Of course it’s all supposed to be about ‘proportionality’. So if more boys voluntary take part in sports activities due to equal opportunity, to enforce ‘equal outcome’ the colleges are either sued, or the teams are disbanded, to allow more girls to enter these activities. Now isn’t that quota messed up? Equal opportunities should not lead to equal outcomes being mandatory forced by law.

barry0912 answers:

They should disband student governments in the same manner if it’s all about equality as they are primarily populated by females.

Really I don’t think they should do for either but if you are going to do it to one; it should be done to both.

Your Questions About Title 9

William asks…

What is the NCAA Title 9 (IX) rule?

I still don’t understand what the rule is. And why do they stop some colleges from participating in some sports in regard to the rule

barry0912 answers:

I’m very passionate about women’s sports and I’ve played many throughout my life. This is the best answer I can give you:

In 1972, Congress passed the Educational Amendments to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. One important section of this law, Title IX, changed the landscape of intercollegiate athletics, especially for women. It states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance” (Salter 6).

Title IX meant greater opportunity for women’s participation in college athletics traditionally only available to men and effected women’s lives in a positive manner.

In the 35 years following the passage of Title IX in 1972, the federal legislation that mandates equal opportunities for men and women, has prompted significant increases in participation opportunities for high school and college female athletes. Many advances have been made for girls and women in sport, but equity has yet to be achieved. However, major discrepancies still exist in the area of facilities, travel schedules, and support services, and equity in equipment provided. We have yet to reach the point of fairness in America’s education sports programs.

Michael asks…

When will the discriminatory law, Title 9 finally end?

barry0912 answers:

Title 9 is NOT discriminatory.

Title IX was put in place to guarantee women had equal access to sports – that’s the opposite of discriminatory.

College presidents are using Title IX as an excuse to cut sports programs that don’t make the university money.

TAHIRA- So, the 52 Americans held for 444 days in the embassy was not threatening the US? Wow, you’re dumb!

They were held hostage IN THE EMBASSY and the new IRC did NOTHING ABOUT IT. THAT IS A THREAT!!!!!

Your Questions About Title Nine

Donna asks…

What are the professional boxing rules for defending a world title?

Do you always have to defend the title every nine months even if you are yourself challenging another champion for another belt? I thought boxers only fought every six months which would make trying to hold multiple belts almost impossible, which it obviously isn’t since wladimir klitchko holds four?

barry0912 answers:

Each sanctioning group has their own rules, and will waive those rules if they wish.
Promoters are in bed with the governing bodies and make fights that should not be, and do not require some fights that should be mandatory.

Steven asks…

title nine….anyone know what it is or have anything……?

they would like to let me know about their own experiances using this law? i need some sort of interviews for my journalism class…..so plz help!!!!

barry0912 answers:

Americans have long locked at organized sports as a good thing for boys and young men. Should you or I be surprised that they’re good for girls and young women? That’s why the battle over Title IX, requiring parity between men’s and women’s athletics at educational institutions, is important.

Your Questions About Title 9

Lisa asks…

what are some pros and cons on title 9 gender equity in sports?

barry0912 answers:

I think it is fine for girls (or ladies) to play sports on an all girls team. As a matter of fact the Lady Vols are my favorite. But to insist that they play football or basketball or any sports on a guys team is going a bit too far. I am sure a group of big burly football players would Mollie- collie a woman on the team, perhaps to the point they would lose the game. There is still a part of the world that belongs to men, and sports happens to be a part of that part.

George asks…

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

Thomas asks…

How can I find accurate demographics showing who holds the wealth in America?

A few years ago a marketing company posted statistics on the web. They stated that the vast majority of wealth in America was in the hands of women 55 to 70 years old (you know, oppressed minority members like Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Oprah, the Walton girls, etc.) Then it was abruptly pulled from the internet and now I can’t find statistics at all to either substantiate or disprove it. Any ideas where I can find a good source for that information?

I, too, have been recently searching for info on the wealth disparity in America only to find most statistics are based on 4-5 year old data.
That aside, here is a link which may be of some benefit.

There are hundreds of way to market on Facebook but the best way it to remember that Facebook is a social media site, not a sales and business arena. Facebook is about building relationships, making friends, sharing information and knowledge. Make sure that you portray yourself as a caring human being, not a sales person..you can take is to take a social media training course where you’ll not only learn about Facebook but you’ll also learn about other social media sites.
