The platform also addresses other concerns that students face. It boldly declares “We emphatically support the original, authentic meaning of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.” Title IX has been used for years to target many activities that male students enjoy on campus. Originally, it simply said that public colleges cannot discriminate on the basis of sex. Feminists have twisted Title IX to mean that colleges cannot have sports teams with more men than women. Liberals also want Title IX to include sexual orientation. Neither of these are even mentioned in Title IX. That is why the platform denounces Obama’s attempt “to impose a social and cultural revolution upon the American people by wrongly redefining sex discrimination to include sexual orientation or other categories.”
The 2016 Republican Party platform should show young people that we are the ones who truly care about them. We care about their right to free speech on campus. We care about their right to participate and excel in extracurricular activities. The Republican Party is the party for college students.
