Your Questions About Title Ix

Lizzie asks…

Does Title IX protect a college football player right of sexual identity?

I think I’m gay. I intend to be a D1 QB but I will NOT put up with any harassment.

barry0912 answers:

No, it only allows for the equal opportunity to participate in educational programs regardless of federally protected classes. Neither Sexual Preference nor Sexual/Gender Identity are protected classes under federal law. Some states protect one or the other, but not many. However, many schools have non-discrimination policies that cover those classes.

John asks…

What are peoples opinions on Title IX and how its influenced womens sports today?

barry0912 answers:

Title IX has been miss used.
It was supposed to give women’s sports an equal opportunity.
I take that to mean the same number of scholar athletes, but many interpret that to mean the same amount of money is spent on women and men.
What has happened is many schools have dropped men’s sports while adding women’s sports such as crew and equestrian.
Some want football canceled even though that is normally the one sport that makes money and funds the rest of the athletic program.
There are schools that have dropped men’s sports even though those sports were never a burden to the school, i.e. Golf which was completely funded by private donations was dropped so the 6 men lost their scholarships at no savings to the school.
I believe women should have an equal opportunity to sports, but not to the extent that men must suffer, especially since these people did not participate in past discrimination.

Your Questions About Low Cost Franchises

Laura asks…

Any suggestions on the best low cost ( cheap ) sports, health, fitness, exercise franchise.?

Any suggestions on the best low cost ( cheap ) sports, health, fitness, exercise franchise.?
I am on a low budget. I want to start an easy business to make extra money to supplement my income. Forget about Jazzercise, it’s old and too expensive. Any suggestions?

barry0912 answers:

My girlfriend just started a Belly-Dancercise program and she is making money. It is easy, low cost program that combines easy, modified belly dance moves with music and exercise. The entire concept is fantastic.
Also, Belly-Dancercise is not a franchise — it’s better than that because she does not owe royalties or fees. She teaches Belly-Dancercise in her house and the local gym is adding her program too. Another cool thing is that we want to take a cruise and she is looking into teaching the program on the ship. I think the professional package is under $200 (a special).
You can find it here: http://www.bellydancercise.com or at Belly Dance College: http://www.bellydancecollege.com Check them out.

James asks…

Why are there old people on the internet?

barry0912 answers:

Internet is for everyone, everyone can benefit from it. Actually, it depends on the interest. A sports person would like watch sports news on it. A person who has an interest in politics can take a look at news sites, etc. Older people also have the same interest that many elderly do. There are many old people still in business and they use the Internet to advertise their website. The elderly, which invest in the stock market like to know the fluctuating prices of shares and many more. In ancient times, are retirees mostly interested in gaming and politics. So they would look at sports and politics news. The people who love to do gardening, they want to receive information about gardening. Operations are limited to just one interest

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 other best option would be to use your local public or college library databases (such as National Newspaper Core [Proquest], EBSCO Newspapers, Opposing Viewpoints, etc.)

It may help your search of the open Web or of the databases if you can use additional related keywords in your search. Words that might signify the *kind* of opinions you’re looking to find.
Globalization
free markets
online generation
freedom
outsourcing
specific country names
censorship
the list can be extended as far as your vocabulary and time to search allows

Who owns CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal etc…?

and most other major purveyors of news that we digest here in the USA?

I am speaking of the actual people, the majority stock holders, the ones who have the power to shape an agenda or political leaning of a particular news source.

When you look at who the owners are, would you then say that the most such news organizations lean most towards being liberal or conservative….and what does this tell you about the news that we get?
