NEWS ROUNDUP: The fight to protect women and children continues

1. Biden’s Title IX rule change facing well deserved backlash in Court and Congress

The Biden Administration’s attack on the rights of women and girls has gone too far—but thankfully, federal courts are stepping in.

Consider Biden’s new Title IX rule change, which would force gender ideology on our education system by:

  • Forcing students and teachers to use biologically inaccurate pronouns at the behest of gender confused students, and granting schools the power to socially transition children without parental consent or notification.

  • Forcing women and girls to share bathrooms and locker rooms with gender confused biological men starting as young as Kindergarten.

Thankfully, U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty issued a temporary injunction that would block the rule change from taking effect in Idaho, among other states.

Judge Doughty’s decision doesn’t immediately affect the outcome of a case challenging our school bathroom legislation that is currently waiting for a decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, but it certainly helps.

Republicans in Congress have also introduced a bill, which now has 72 cosponsors, to reverse the rule. Their new bill should make its way to the House floor for a vote in the coming weeks.

One cosponsor, Representative Bob Good of Virginia, put it this way:

With the stroke of a pen, the Biden administration destroyed Title IX’s promises of equal opportunity to women and eradicated sex-protected spaces like bathrooms, locker rooms and campus housing for students from kindergarten through grad school.

Be in prayer that in the end, women and girls are protected, gender ideology is eradicated, and righteousness prevails in our country!


2. South Idaho city named America’s best-run city

Congratulations are in order to Mayor Debbie Kling and the leadership in the City of Nampa!

A new Wallethub study, which ranked 148 of the nation’s largest cities, ranked the Southern Idaho city as the best-run city in America.

Wallethub analyst Cassandra Happe said:

The best-run cities in America use their budgets most effectively to provide high-quality financial security, education, health, safety and transportation to their residents…. Many of the top cities also have a very low amount of outstanding government debt per capita, which can prevent financial troubles in the future.

According to the study, Nampa’s debt per capita is 98% lower than cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Oakland, Denver and Detroit.

Nampa also has the sixth-lowest property-crime rate and the 22nd-lowest violent crime rate in the country.


3. Comedian calls for return to traditional parenting, refers to ‘gentle parenting’ as negotiating with terrorists

In the days leading up to Fathers’ Day, Bill Maher called for a return of traditional parenting, asking viewers to give dads “permission to be a dad like dads used to be.”

Maher called out the different phases of bad parenting he’s seen throughout the years, including trophy syndrome, helicopter parenting, bulldozer parenting, and now, gentle parenting.

Maher ripped into the idiocy of gentle parenting, which teaches parents to avoid disciplining their children and telling them “no.” He said:

I keep hearing how parenting is so hard these days—yeah, because you’re making it hard. Gentle parenting is like a Taco Bell breakfast, the reason it feels wrong is because it is…. Parents, it’s ruining your life because you’ve made yourselves a butler to a 5-year-old. And… all this letting the kids run the show, path of least resistance child-rearing, is harming them.

Maher then proceeded to describe the unprecedented levels of anxiety in children today because they haven’t been “properly prepared for a world that doesn’t revolve around them.”

If we want to see meaningful change in our country, it’s time for fathers to reclaim their position as the leader of their households.


4. Rexburg Pride Festival proves that it’s possible to have private drag shows separate from public event

In a surprising turn of events, the Rexburg Pride Festival has proven that it’s possible to protect children from sexualized drag performances.

According to Rexburg Pride Director Doug Pawson, the festival decided to hold this year’s drag show at a private venue, away from the main event at Porter Park.

As you may know by now, Idaho Family Policy Center introduced House Bill 265 last year to ban drag shows at public parks and other places where children are present.

The bill ultimately failed in an Idaho Senate committee after passing the House overwhelmingly.

It shouldn’t be too much to ask drag show organizers to hold their events in private places and check IDs at the door—especially now that Rexburg Pride has shown it can be done.

We are not backing down on this issue. Sign our petition asking state legislators to protect innocent children—and ask your friends and family to do the same.
