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!!!!!

Paul asks…

What are some arguments for and/or against Title IX?

I am working on a debate for school and was curious as to any other ideas people have concerning Title IX.

barry0912 answers:

Biggest argument against Title IX: in order to conform to the law’s mandate for equal access to opportunities in sports, a lot of schools cut mens teams (like wrestling) with no equivalent women’s team so as to have equal numbers of men and women participating in sports.

Biggest counter-argument to that: Title IX demands equal ACCESS, not pure equality, and schools that do things like that tend to do it for financial reasons and blame it on Title IX.

barry0912 answers:

In the House, the Committee on Education and the Workforce would be the committee that would have primary jurisdiction over legislation dealing with Title IX. Specifically, the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Training.

In the Senate, such legislation would be referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

John asks…

Would you join a revolution to put an end to the imbalance of wealth?

The wealthy have always made up lies as to why they deserve more, fact is that they dont. They say “free market” dictates it all, so lets tell them what we are willing to pay and see how they like it. Actors paid 20mil for one movie, 15 mil per year to read the news, 2.2 mil for one actor for one episode of frasier, 1 million a week for some guy to kick balls? The world has gone mad. Would you join a worldwide revolution where every person on the planet was joined through the internet to boycott businesses until they stopped paying CEOs 20ml a year and all the other parasites? boycott movies at random until they send actors reality cheques instead of bigger pay cheques? Its your world why shouldnt you have your FAIR share and tell the parasites where to stick it? This will be starting soon, are you in?
Nice to see the idiots are out in force. Any of you SFB’s wants to put their money where their mouth is then send me and email with your address.
Arrested by CEOs? Does your brain ever work in conjunction with your mouth?
Communism? you people are thick, nothing to do with communism
How about if I make my invention so expensive that no one on the planet can afford it so you all end up living in the streets? would that be OK because thats what free enterpise is all about? Its OK if it doesnt affect you. Millions are starving and Fwits are whining about how fair it is for someone to make millions a week because they are so valuable. YOU people are morons and a discrace to humanity.

barry0912 answers:

How the hell u gonna pull that off,
if ur joined thru the internet n how u gonna boycott all that, the CEO’s will just have u all arrested n you’d be squashed in a day. Just live with it like all the rest of us hard working citizens. Life can be unfair but its life.

Im sure if someone paid u 20 mil to not start a revolution, you’d take it. LOL

Lizzie asks…

Are you sick and tired of the Health Food (anti-meat/soda) Food Nazis?

First the health Nazis attacked tobacco, after getting traction on that issue they began attacking fast food joints, then they turned their sights onto soda… the health food zealots won’t be satisfied until red meat is outlawed! I don’t know about you but I’m very angry and Hades will freeze over before I sit down to a supper of raw carrots and celery washed down with a disgusting glass of grapefruit juice.

Fast food is just that… just something fast and convenient… soda is just a snack drink. I wouldn’t go to a McDonalds or a BurgerKing for a salad or a piece of fruit and if that’s all they served or even a majority of their menu I would go else where. Only a fool would attempt to eat fast food three times a day/seven days a week. But it is convenient when your either in a hurry or on the run.

Are you as angry as I am? Are you sick and tired of the health food Nazis attempting to dictate what you can eat and drink?

How much would you care to wager the HMO’s are the ones ultimately behind the health food propaganda?

Control tobacco, food ads to beat cancer – panel By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Editor
Thu Aug 16, 12:14 AM ET
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070816/hl_nm/cancer_usa_dc;_ylt=Ap3_o.sabt8ApNmBJxcrP469j7AB

A new presidential report on cancer takes on not only tobacco companies but the food industry while calling on the federal government to “cease being a purveyor of unhealthy foods” and switch to policies that encourage Americans to eat vegetables and exercise.

The report, issued on Thursday, also urged changes in public and private insurance policies to encourage doctors to spend more time counseling patients on how to stay healthy by eating right, exercising and avoiding tobacco.

“Ineffective policies, in conjunction with limited regulation of sales and marketing in the food and beverage industry, have spawned a culture that struggles to make healthy choices — a culture in dire need of change,” said the report, available on the Internet at http://pcp.cancer.gov.

“Moreover, the panel was troubled to find that the efforts of those committed to an America less burdened by cancer often are compromised by federal, state, and local policies that have decreased the availability and affordability of healthy foods, limited physical education in schools, and created a built environment that discourages physical activity,” it said.

Several reports have shown that a third of all cancers are caused by tobacco use, and another one-third by obesity and inactivity.

“This country must not ignore its moral obligation to protect the health of all Americans. We can and must empower individuals to make healthy choices through appropriate policy and legislation, and the panel urges you to use the power of your office toward this life-saving goal,” the President’s Cancer Panel, chaired by Howard University’s Dr. LaSalle Leffall, wrote in a letter to Bush.

Your Questions About Title Ix

Paul asks…

Would females stil lbe as involved in sports if title IX had not become legislation?

would the participation of female in sports have increased if title IX had not become legislation?

barry0912 answers:

It’s hard to say. They certainly participated before Title IX, but I imagine it gives more opportunities to more women.
You can’t get a definitive answer to a hypothetical question, and I’m kind of curious about why you’re asking

Lizzie asks…

when there are more womens teams AND more women athletes, yet the male team is cut for title IX, is that right?

feminists love defending title IX.
yet i know schools with 12 female teams and male teams, and more overall female athletes.
even so, the MALE teams are still being cut.

now, what if there were more male teams and students? feminists would probably protest that the women didnt have equal opportunity.
so why doesnt interest and opportunities of male athletes count? why are male teams cut when they are the minority?

barry0912 answers:

Title IX doesn’t state how it’s suppose to be implemented, that’s the college’s choice/excuse for doing whatever they like. No where does Title IX state that there should be equal expenditure of funds on male and female athletes: http://www.womenssportsfoundation.org/home/advocate/title-ix-and-issues/what-is-title-ix/title-ix-primer

oh, and most of the small and medium colleges and universities do not have football programs that even cover the costs of their football programs-let alone cover the costs of any other sports programs (over 80% of all college football programs and almost all high school football programs lose money-see link below). High school and junior high football programs are even worse- injuries are sky high in high school and college sports-with pro teams, coaches, alumni and parents pushing kids past their physical abilities.

When coaches make millions and faculty make peanuts, these are not “sports” they are coaching, they are pre pro franchises. Public funding shouldn’t be used to “help” pro sports.
