Title IX: Making Men out of our Daughters

by W.F. Price on January 27, 2014

Title IX is an atrocious piece of legislation, but it also exposes some of the excesses of college sports programs, which are run like semi-pro leagues today. Because Title IX ridiculously mandates parity in male and female sports programs despite the fact that young men are naturally far more interested in sports than young women, finding enough women to fill the rosters has proven to be difficult for colleges. The need to find girls who can compete has led schools to recruit girls before they even enter high school, which is reminiscent of the USSR’s systematic selection process:

SANFORD, Fla. — Before Haley Berg was done with middle school, she had the numbers for 16 college soccer coaches programmed into the iPhone she protected with a Justin Bieber case.

She was all of 14, but Hales, as her friends call her, was already weighing offers to attend the University of Colorado, Texas A&M and the University of Texas, free of charge.

Haley is not a once-in-a-generation talent like LeBron James. She just happens to be a very good soccer player, and that is now valuable enough to set off a frenzy among college coaches, even when — or especially when — the athlete in question has not attended a day of high school. For Haley, the process ended last summer, a few weeks before ninth grade began, when she called the coach at Texas to accept her offer of a scholarship four years later.

Haley is not a once-in-a-generation talent like LeBron James. She just happens to be a very good soccer player, and that is now valuable enough to set off a frenzy among college coaches, even when — or especially when — the athlete in question has not attended a day of high school. For Haley, the process ended last summer, a few weeks before ninth grade began, when she called the coach at Texas to accept her offer of a scholarship four years later.

When I started in seventh grade, I didn’t think they would talk to me that early,” Haley, now 15, said after a tournament late last month in Central Florida, where Texas coaches showed up to watch her juke past defenders, blond ponytail bouncing behind.

“Even the coaches told me, ‘Wow, we’re recruiting an eighth grader,’ ” she said.

In today’s sports world, students are offered full scholarships before they have taken their first College Boards, or even the Preliminary SAT exams. Coaches at colleges large and small flock to watch 13- and 14-year-old girls who they hope will fill out their future rosters. This is happening despite N.C.A.A. rules that appear to explicitly prohibit it.

The heated race to recruit ever younger players has drastically accelerated over the last five years, according to the coaches involved. It is generally traced back to the professionalization of college and youth sports, a shift that has transformed soccer and other recreational sports from after-school activities into regimens requiring strength coaches and managers.

The practice has attracted little public notice, except when it has occasionally happened in football and in basketball. But a review of recruiting data and interviews with coaches indicate that it is actually occurring much more frequently in sports that never make a dime for their colleges.

Early scouting has also become more prevalent in women’s sports than men’s, in part because girls mature sooner than boys. But coaches say it is also an unintended consequence of Title IX, the federal law that requires equal spending on men’s and women’s sports. Colleges have sharply increased the number of women’s sports scholarships they offer, leading to a growing number of coaches chasing talent pools that have not expanded as quickly. In soccer, for instance, there are 322 women’s soccer teams in the highest division, up from 82 in 1990. There are now 204 men’s soccer teams.

“In women’s soccer, there are more scholarships than there are good players,” said Peter Albright, the coach at Richmond and a regular critic of early recruiting. “In men’s sports, it’s the opposite.”

While women’s soccer is generally viewed as having led the way in early recruiting, lacrosse, volleyball and field hockey have been following and occasionally surpassing it, and other women’s and men’s sports are becoming involved each year when coaches realize a possibility of getting an edge.

Precise numbers are difficult to come by, but an analysis done for The New York Times by the National Collegiate Scouting Association, a company that consults with families on the recruiting process, shows that while only 5 percent of men’s basketball players and 4 percent of football players who use the company commit to colleges early — before the official recruiting process begins — the numbers are 36 percent in women’s lacrosse and 24 percent in women’s soccer…

Shoving girls into competitive contact sports like soccer is unnatural and dangerous. Girls who play soccer have a very high rate of devastating knee injuries, and basketball even higher. But because of Title IX, colleges that make good money on men’s basketball and football must create numerical and financial parity between male and female players. This results in a financial incentive for families to push their daughters into sports designed for male bodies, thereby injuring girls and wasting money and male talent. It is almost as stupid and wasteful as putting young women in combat, although it isn’t quite that bad.

I also have to wonder whether the scholarships are really worth the risk. If a girl gets a scholarship, but in the process blows out her ACL, is that a fair trade? Also, does it help her in terms of career and marriage? I doubt it. Men don’t generally care whether a girl played in competitive sports or not, and women don’t seem all that interested in the kinds of jobs athletes traditionally get after giving up sports (salesman, businessman, military officer, etc.).

I’d recommend keeping athletic daughters out of high-impact team sports, and instead giving them a choice of something like tennis, gymnastics, skiing, swimming or the like, depending on their talents, of course. There’s nothing wrong with young women using their bodies in a vigorous, healthy way, but they aren’t built for slamming into people while wearing cleats. I played soccer at a high level in high school (went to state championships), and it can be a very rough sport — I still have scars on my ankles and shins from being gouged by cleats. It isn’t as rough on the joints as football, which, seeing the knee and hip surgeries most of the men in my family have to get in middle age, I am now glad I never played, but it’s no pansy sport. Frankly, I wouldn’t want my daughter thrown into the game, and I sometimes wonder about parents who push their daughters into it.

But this article sheds a little light on the practice: the government, through colleges, wants them there on the field. Being feminine, it seems, isn’t good enough for our women; they have to act like men to get ahead. No wonder American women have such a gender identity crisis.

Hey Bill:

Hopefully, I’m not the first to post because my statement is slightly off topic. First, when removing the false notion that sex is just some arbitrary social construct from the equation, you can quickly reduce all this nonsense down to ego…both ego masturbation and lack of an ego (low self esteem).

Here’s a classic feminist contradiction: If “masculinity” is bad (root of all evil and wars and blah, blah, blah) and if these new “studies” say its bad for men to be masculine then why is masculine being promoted in women? Doesn’t that say that masculine is good? After all, why tell women to be that way, wouldn’t it make sense for them to avoid masculine too? And since feminism is all about “equality”, if masculinity is good for women shouldn’t it be good for men too? Why exclude? Why “discriminate”? Indeed, aren’t feminists policies that encourage male behavior in women a validation of the behavior itself? If we are to follow the letter of these feminist messages as men then we all should be vying for a varsity letter in football, yes?

K, we all know that its a load of bull making us all miserable, but, I thought I’d highlight another blatant example of feminism’s incoherence.

Truth is gents, be yourself. And in doing so you’ll evoke a happier self and writ large better societal balance. And true diversity can flourish. I played four years of football varsity 3/4, wrestled, always fought, u.s. marines infantry and later an officer. Currently on wall street. I’m all those things, but, I’m also an artist/oil painter.

Individuals don’t fit nicely into neat molds, which is what feminism wants. But, we do rhyme, which is to say that men are masculine and women are feminine. Exclude title ix and it all falls into place…that’s why were right and that’s why this thing will turn.

Also, everyone, I finally started my blog. Its not good, so, know that up front and my posts are re-hashed comments from The Spearhead and other sites.

I’m quite certain that for most college women, this doesn’t do anything good for their future chances to have a lasting marriage.

In addition to the increasingly obvious health issues cited (knees, shoulders just for a start) there are other issues.

* The physical training will affect their hormone balance at an age where their brain is still quite plastic. Look at some images of young women and see how masculine they are increasingly showing.

* The temptation to use steroids is likely always present. The long term effects are not good.

Plus:
* There will always be some number of lesbians in college women’s sports, particularly softball, and that’s going to matter in various ways.

* The whole “jock” lifestyle for women is likely to push them in the direction of promiscuity. It’s not even a secret now that Olympic host sites shovel bushel baskets of condoms into competitor housing, for example. It is not debateable anymore that increasing the number of sexual partners a woman has prior to marriage directly and negatively affects her ability to pair-bond, and thus to resist the temptation to frivorce when the youngest child gets to be 4 or 5 years old.

I’m not sure as to why you are feeling sorry for injured girls here. I would feel sorry exclusively for the boys who were told “no” when they wanted to play any sport despite the reality that when we tell both boys and girls that they can play whatever sport they want, and we remove the stigma attached to a girl who wants to box and the stigma attached to a boy who wants to do figure skating so that nobody cares if a girl wants to do a sport not considered feminine or if a boy wants to do a sport not considered masculine, there will still be more boys wanting to do any sport than there are girls wanting to do any sport. If you are going to feel sorry for anyone, only feel sorry for the men told “no” and nobody else.

The title of this piece says it all.

Girls’ lacrosse is becoming huge over here. There’s a field near my house where the games are held. Sometimes I stop by to watch. The enthusiasm displayed by the parents–especially the dads–is excessive.

I’m certain they implicitly recognise that females are the new men in society and therefore invest more emotion (amongst other things) in their daughters.

Lacrosse is an awesome sport. I played it as a boy in Connecticut. I wish more boys would play it here.

Girls playing men’s sports has always struck me as highly unusual. The current enthusiasm for women’s bassetball–which, I’ve discovered, is even shown on tv [WTF?!]–is a case in point. A more unattractive game I could not imagine.

But then again, I’ve never really gotten over women in trousers.

A friend of mine’s daughter was pretty good at soccer and got a Title IV scholarship. She’s 35 now; has a bad back, a bad knee and just broke her wrist snow boarding. She used her degree to become a teacher, but was in sales for awhile first.

It comes down to the profitable sports such as football subsidizing the other sports scholarships equally between men and women. College football has gotten insanely powerful as a business enterprise. And tuition prices keep pace with demand – for borrowing.

Making women men. Feminists say goooodddd!

I strongly suggest you invest in kitty litter, and animal mart franchises. In the near future, I suspect a huge payout since women supposedly control 80% of spendable income.

Because let’s face it gentlemen, they certainly are not going to marry anyone we know in the vast majority of cases. So I see a whole lot more of the “Why won’t my male peers mwaarrrryyyyy mweeeee?” genre of articles.

Essentially, Olga the Lesbian is going to have her pick of washed up self proclaimed martyrs who in times past would have lined the walls of monasteries and nunneries. See, I can see the glass as half full?!

Title IX as with most Feminist legislation is not to ensure parity within athletics. Feminists themselves know this is an impossibility as many young women are simply not interested in a professional sports career.

Title IX was specifically designed to create and foster an atmosphere, where the threat of economic sanction looms over the vital programs dedicated for boys. Boys are to be stripped of the avenue of earning a living through sport. As the law becomes more draconian as more ideologues stuff the halls of power, the legislation will not be repealed, it will be more strictly enforced, it will constrict tighter as many Colleges fail to meet their quotas.

So boys are not to be educated and then their other option Athletics, is to be closed to them as well. The message is clear, boys are to be serfs and beggars. As with anything Feminists devise, what the champion is not the true goal. From porn, to prostitution to sports. It is designed to criminalise or destroy male life.

This is a good topic to discuss and reveal the importance of how manipulating incentive structures is used to further agendas. There are many things at work here, and they don’t really care so much about the genuine wants of the individuals being effected. Today, it literally takes a mountain of money to send just one kid to school. That said, any scholarships would be helpful if not critical to both the student and parent or parents. Whereas title ix is wrecking male sports, it is in turn, balancing the proportions which has also resulted in the growth of female sports. Since this system requires more females to fill these slots and given their natural dis-inclination towards sports its relatively easier for women to obtain access to better schools and scholarships. Again relative, but, nonetheless the impact of this is far ranging.

Why? Simple, evidently we all have to go to college and that takes lots of money. This is doubly evident when accounting for the poor economic conditions of today to include the steady decline in incomes. If you had a couple kids, maybe even just one you’re facing a $200,000 bill…what would you do?

Exactly ergo why this is being done.

But, consider all the perversions at work here. We have an exponential rise in tuition over the years owning to many things from more administrators, tenure, grievance studies and most notably student loans or the political ideal of entitling everyone an education. Its perverse because artificial forces are inflating the price of college, which in turn acts as a driver for the dynamic I described above. Of course, the whole institution of title ix is perverse, after all, the proportion of male to female athletes has been determined not by the student players but by bureaucrats or some outside disconnected entity (probably the fat, smelly and very un-athletic women’s studies departments).

Here’s the good news. Both the current student loan bubble and academia itself are under extreme pressure. I’ve mentioned many times how information technology has rendered the medieval university system totally obsolete. Funny isn’t it, how these tenured radicals call us obsolete? The progressive school system from stem to stern, which includes grievance studies and athletic proportionality, has proven to be an abject failure. Standards continue to drop as well as our relative placement versus other countries. And the ROI of a college education is nill, in fact, statistically there is no difference between income post undergrad and high school. Similar inefficiencies are appearing in grad and even post grad. This is all very well known.

Its a broken system. The education of the near future will be much cheaper, quicker and better. There is a perfectly good reason why harvard remains the top university in the world…it has no competition. That’s all changing. Imagine if tenure professors actually had real competition…they’d be blown out! Frankly, college athletics will have to endure a very radical change too. Virtual classrooms have much lower overhead than multiple stadia or big huge buildings and dorms for that matter. So, you’re not going to push your daughter or any of your kids unnecessarily when education finally becomes very affordable again.

Trying to make females like males is the ultimate perversion, it offers few benefits that are exclusive to females only (self esteem boost) and results in endless negative consequences…from transgenderism, grass eating to depression/suicide. But it won’t last for much longer. acadamia is the source of our unfortunate progressive religion…yet, they maintain an antiquated and obsolete system that gauges the students while producing a shitty product. Progress (real progress) is happening…but its these old institutions that are holding us back.

About 1.5 years ago , I tore my left ACL avoiding a crash on my dirt bike.
While doing research on the web, I stumbled on the Wikipedia article on ACL injuries, and it was surprisingly non-PC on the literal *epidemic* of female ACL injuries since Title IX took effect..

Apparently, the female knee anatomy is quite different than the male’s and decidedly *not* designed for running and jumping.

feminists became motivated to push women into sport to make them more competitive with men in business and life etc. In essence, they found out that feminine women competing with masculine men wasn’t working. So, they took have worked hard to make women masculine and then some… Aggressive, dogged, competitive, ambitious, ruthless, achievement oriented, status oriented, promiscuous? Feminine? The definition no longer fits westernized women anywhere on earth. Same for wifely, virtuous, demure, graceful, humble, warm, petite. If I tried to pretend I was an offensive lineman the NFL, I’d be closer to the truth than American women claiming they make good wives and mothers.

Gentlemen,
The male view of what constitutes an ‘alpha’ woman, and the feminist view could not be more disparate.

Feminists often say if you want to be treated fairly in divorce you need to marry your equal. Well people have always married their equal. It is just we see ‘alpha’ woman on a different scale than do feminists. You all know the characteristics we adore and they have nothing to do with being a 500k CEO.
It is the law now that is confused, using the same scale for different genders. Title IX is just the same stupid disorientation. I have unfortunately seen it in action, and the devastation it brings at the very least to male morale.
I hope one day to be very well remunerated and at the top of my profession. If I marry I won’t be looking for the same in the woman. I could care less in except that it would make her a lousy candidate, in fact she would be a ‘zeta’ female. If however she was kind, considerate, and (gasp!) demure, she would rocket up the scale to ‘alpha’ female and get my vote.
Under the law I would eventually be punished for this when under nature’s law what I am saying when I ask her to marry me is that I see her characteristics as complimentary AND equal to mine. Very much so.

Therefore what we have here is a disjunct between nature and our laws because of an insane inability to see traditional feminine characteristics as a fundamental treasure of society and place them on a hierarchy of their own.
I therefore declare feminists to be an enemy of the state. I used to express to them a desire that they die barren and unrewarded for their efforts but I no longer feel that is enough.
Punishment for crimes committed, I now think, is essential.

There’s a very simple solution to this: college men who can’t make the varsity team should declare a female gender, and then take over the women’s team. The bold school that implements this strategy would quickly win a national championship while fulfilling its Title X requirements. If anyone questions the gender choice of these athletes, they should be dismissed as mysogynists. If it’s found that these “women” are still attracted to women, they should simply say, “We identify as transgender lesbians.”

>And the ROI of a college education is nill, in fact, statistically there is no difference between income post undergrad and high school.

Have to disagree with you here. Other than electricians, who are apparently in vast demand in my city, I am sure I make significantly more than any tradesman (excluding the business owner). And far more than anyone working a front-line retail position. I have worked in my field for 15 years, so even with the 5 years of lost wages and the tuition and books, I am ahead. Every year I continue to work in this field is gravy. And yes, God has given me a good mind and skills that are in demand; your mileage my vary.

But I agree with your comments on loans. The more the banks loan to students, the more demand there is for the classes. Thus higher prices, which leads to lower return.

And more importantly, universities can get away with offering useless classes with taxpayer-funded subsidies. I would prefer to see no subsidies, but an equal increase in loans. Each year that the graduate pays tax at a higher level than his pre-school level, maybe 10% of his taxes get deducted off the loan amount. This way, it costs you to take a useless course that does not result in a job where your skills are used, and thus does not help the economy. This is proper, since it benefited no one but you. Of course the student may not pay up, but some would, plus others may be deterred from taking courses that would not lead to a paying job.
I do not mind if you want to take a class merely for personal interest, but pay for it yourself. Like I did.

I don’t care. Title IX has unintended consequences and they need to be fully felt. If girls suffer great they need to. Most of the creeping erosion of western civilization has come from the desire to continue to insolate females from consequences. The only reason feminism is even slightly seen as a negative is the erosion has reached a point where the insolating qualities of society are so depleted that reality is stating to be felt on the edges. Suffering the consequences for choices is the best thing. Red pill truth is a cure all. BTW nothing makes a beta male more sexy than the red pill truth of reality.

The university of michigan has been trying desperately to push women’s basketball for the last twenty years. In the 1990′s, they gave away a ticket, a free hot dog and a free soda for a dollar. Typical number of fans per game: ~300-400 hundred (many of them pairs of women).

Last week they were trying again. They gave two free tickets to all faculty, and gave $200 each to the service clubs that brought the largest number of fans. They also used blackout curtains to artfully obscure the upper level of the arena, a feature added to make women’s use of the arena less obviously empty.

Total attendance? Not announced (I wonder why) but I’d guess around 500. But then you add in the cheerleaders plus school spirit dancers (hey, they found a way to get a group of cute girls as opposed to man-jawed gymnast girl cheerleaders) plus the pep band plus the color guard for the flag plus coaches and staff plus ushers, the crowd must have topped 600.

Seriously, women’s basketball? When will they give it up? After fifteen years of this?

Regarding the hidden costs of Title IX -

“The combination of the greater susceptibility and a 10-fold increase in the female sports population since the inception of Title IX has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of ACL injuries in females. In the United States, 100,000 to 300,000 total ACL injuries occur each year. The treatment costs exceed $1 billion annually in female varsity athletics alone and do not end with the ACL reconstruction and rehabilitation. A strong association exists between ACL injury and development of posttraumatic knee osteoarthritis at a relatively young age, which also occurs with much greater incidence in females than males.”

Section 901 (a) 5 of Title IX exempting schools which have been sexually segregated since their “inception”, like many Women’s College Coalition members makes Title IX violative 14th Amendment for states Brown v.Board of Education and 5th Amendment for federal government, Bolling v. Sharpe (District of Columbia)

http://www.womenscolleges.org/

——————————————————————————–

Will the U.S. Supreme Court rule Title IX unconstitutional as “intrinsic contradiction” if an appeal reaches the nations highest court? Because single-sex schools are exempt from Title IX, the Education Amendment of 1972 denies due process and equal protection to similarly situated schools receiving federal funds. The Supreme Court had hinted in Mississippi University for Women v. Hogan (1982) that Congress exemption of single-sex schools from Title IX provided no solace to all-women schools because Congress lacks power to “restrict, abrogate, or dilute” equal protection provisions. Yet, Women’s College Coalition in Washington, D.C. lists about 70 institutions on its web site http://www.womenscolleges.org.

A former Maryland Attorney General had argued in his lawsuit against Burning Tree Club that enforcement of unconstitutional law exposes the enforcer to legal liability. Subsequently, the state’s highest court ruled the law unconstitutional in Burning Tree Club v. Bainum, saying that it was an “intrinsic contradiction” to exclude existing discriminatory practices if the law’s “primary purpose” was to prevent sexual discrimination, And preventing sexual discrimination is the primary purpose of Title IX.

That’s why the InterMat story “Duke Files Appeal on $2 Million Award” is so important. Although the Associated Press reported that Duke’s attorneys only appeal that Congress did not intent punitive damages under Title IX, court could rule the Act of Congress unconstitutional as it did in Christy Brzonkala’s lawsuit against two Virginia Tech football players.

But judges and justices are not omniscient. Unless some attorney points out the constitutional flaw in Title IX, its enforcement may get worse. Asking Congress to modify the law is also barking up the wrong tree. Only after the Supreme Court rules Title IX unconstitutional, will the problems with “proportionality” and other issues be corrected by Congress.

It is almost as stupid and wasteful as putting young women in combat, although it isn’t quite that bad.

I disagreee. Denying women combat duty only feeds the status quo of men being the disposable sex. If women want equality they can fight for it. Why should men die for women when women demand equality? They should form all female combat units and send them to the front. If they want this to be a matriarchy they can fight for it.

daxamite is pure genius (except for the “I could care less ” part – common mistake – it’s “I couldn’t care less”)

“If you want to be treated fairly in divorce you need to marry your equal.”

truer words have never been spoken – TEACH YOUR SONS – I see this in my own marriage/possible divorce. I always pushed her career, and at times she made twice what I did, I was never prouder than when she did. Nevertheless, after 30 years my 401k is twice hers – guess what asset she gets half of …plus 1/2 my pension (ya, I was shocked too, a pension in 2014?) She pissed away thousands, I lose. I should have forced her to save the same as me, in addition to the parity thing. I would divorce in 2 minutes and bang the local strippers if not for the $ I would lose. (Jeez I need to re-think this. Is banging 20-somthing strippers worth losing a 30 year marriage? HELL YES…maybe)

(FYI, Chris Rock was wrong, there is sex in the VIP – at least in Palm Beach FL)

“her characteristics as complimentary AND equal to mine”

Parity and opposite pairing is critical to a successful marriage – diversity indeed!

3 of my brothers and my son all got ripped (see: divorce theft) when the wife decided she was done (not saying the bros were perfect, far from it). I see my own marriage as a slow motion train wreck. Bro #2 says reconcile or separate NOW – before the asset disparity increases.

If she had just divorced me at 5 years, when she threw the father (me) of her children out of the GD house to facilitate banging her boss and co-workers for 6 weeks, she would get NADA now. (FYI I took her from her husband, my bad, so sexual shenanigans later was a forgone conclusion)

Kudos and thanks to the mano-sphere for enlightening me. Bro #2 say this all is poisoning my mind. I am the last man standing, we are last pair married in my family – can I not get a hell yeah from my own siblings about the simple truth?

Oh, and golf. We need to stop pretending that golf is a sport.

Masculine Man
That is correct. The responsibility and all that comes with it must be enjoyed to its fullest. Otherwise we will all continue the slow death of lies of the blue pill.

I second Paul Murray. Separate the two systems, and both will thrive, as they are at cross purposes.

Notice that Title IX is only enforced against men in sports. It is never enforced in the totally unequal participation in dozens of other campus activities where women dominate.

Not trying to sound like a broken record but the root of this issue is that individuals are not allowed to determine what they want to do. That’s not only unfair it’s immoral. Males like sports and so what. As follows, males tend to assign societal value to top athletes etc. That’s whats really appealing to feminists is the value or status assigned to athletes…the sport itself, competition, talent or technique really don’t matter. They are envious and jealous…that’s it. Sad. But it gets worse, because in their truly vain attempt to seek out both attention and status the enforced proportionality impacts everyone adversely. Men are displaced on aggregate and therefore forced to not play whereas women are forced to play because they need more to fill slots that would have otherwise never existed. So, no one is really getting what they want and I should add that its feminism telling women how to live not men. I think we should get away from telling other people how to live because a remarkable thing happens; everyone tends to be better off and yes more boys end up playing sports and less girls. Oh the horror!

Well, of course. People should only want to do what is good for them. And “what is good for them” is determined by the self-annointed elite, the social mandarins.

Look at it this way: any man who wants to put on a plaid onesy and sip cocoa while discussing Obamacare is free to do so. Any man who does not want to do that needs to be re-educated.

It’s simple, really…

Thos-
Golf is important.it is still a valid way to get away from women, have fun, get drunk, and do business without their interference.without golf, or infrastructure would have crumpled decades ago.

the end of men?… pft,,,, more like the end of women.

they try very hard to copy men ,,,, and if a man acts like a women, they don’t hesitate to point out how pathetic THERE behavior is, as long its not a women having it pointed out about… that would violate women’s insecurity mandate and lack of accountability mandate. (obviously not all women are like that)
